Here's a rare treat - Mr Fogg playing a local gig in Reading!

Hometown performances may be few and far between, but 2007 has been far from quiet for Mr Fogg.

As well as releasing three records, he's recorded live sessions for Radio 2, 6 Music and XFM, performed up and down the country and put together a shortlist of over 40 songs for his debut album.

Now the electronica prince will be headlining the Club Velocity Christmas party at the Rising Sun Arts Centre in Reading on Friday 7 December.

Recently described by Artrocker magazine as "like Get Cape Wear Cape snuggling up with Imogen Heap", Mr Fogg crafts songs in an isolated studio in the woods before combining with a full band for "killer" (BBC Berkshire) live performances.

Also playing on the night are Newbury-based garage blues and punk outfit The Blue Flames and eight-bit art-poppers Midi Midis (featuring members of the recently disbanded Chinafight) who are playing their first ever Reading gig. 

West Reading Galaxy DJs provide the soundtrack between live acts, and free mince pies will be served to help you get into the Christmas spirit.
