DJ in the House! Fatboy Slim to play gig in Parliament tonight

Brighton Port Authority is the latest incarnation of Norman Cook. The concept is that BPA's songs could have been recorded "sometime during the Seventies", which really means it's a repository for stuff that wouldn't get the Fatboy Slim fans going nuts.
