First Call, Last Call
Friday 12 March 1999
CURRENTLY IN the studio working on new material, Jamiroquai have announced a summer date. Fronted by the big-hatted Jay Kay (right), the band's first mainstream success came with their debut album, Emergency on Planet Earth, which launched their unique blend of soul and acid jazz. This was followed by Return of the Space Cowboy, and last year's hit single, "Deeper Underground", taken from the film soundtrack, Godzilla. A new single and album will be released prior to a full UK tour.

ALTHOUGH IT may not have received the rave reviews that greeted its initial opening in Stratford, it is still worth seeing one of the last West End performances of Bartholomew Fair. While director Laurence Boswell may have let the production coast along on momentum from its earlier warm reception, Ben Jonson's energetic comedy still manages to stand on its own two feet. Jacobean hedonism is given a 1990s kickstart as a multitude of wily oddball characters come together to enjoy all kinds of sleazy, fun.
