OVER THE YEARS many visiting rap artists have gained a bad name for turning up late and giving shoddy performances, but this has never applied to The Jungle Brothers (right), who always put in energetic good- value shows. Thanks to the successful re-release of their anthemic "I'll House You" earlier in the year, and a general thirst for old school hip-hop, they've returned for a short tour. With 10 years' worth of great material to draw on, they're sure to get the house moving and involved. Support comes from the Freestylers.

Before they participate in tomorrow night's Camdemonium 15-band fest, those mad Oregonians, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, do a warm-up gig to show London their extremely addictive brand of warped 1960s garage rock with a contemporary edge. Definitely one for those who like their rock 'n' roll spectacles.
