Larrikin Love – who take their unusual name from frontman Mikos surname – are causing quite a stir with their debut album The Freedom Spark.

They have had to change their Fopp date (previously arranged for 15th January) to Monday 22nd January at 6pm, Fopp Tottenham Court Road.
Next up is Londons Jamie Treays – aka Jamie T – will showcase his great lyrical talent and support the release of the single Calm down Dearest, out on 15th January and taken from the stunning debut album Panic Prevention out on January 29th. Jamie brings his blend of rap/reggae/punk to Fopp Tottenham Court Road on Wednesday January 17th at 5:30pm
