Fatboy Slim Brings Weapon Of Choice To House Of Commons! Relax, He's Just Playing A Gig...

Fatboy Slim is set to make history by being the first DJ ever to perform inside the House of Commons next month (unless you count the coalition’s endless remixes and edits of their own campaign manifestos, are we right guys?...guys…?)

The DJ, otherwise known as Norman Cook, will be performing in support of the winner of the House Of The House competition which, according to The Telegraph, is a parliamentary-backed scheme that’s encouraging young musicians to get involved in their local communities. Just don’t expect the government to be around when these budding musicians actually grow up and want to start making money from their craft mind. Speaking in a statement, Cook – who can also, um, boast a spell in The Housemartins – said "I've played some exciting and unique places around the world, from Bondi Beach to The Great Wall of China to an Igloo, but playing in the House of Commons might be the most unique to date." Of the initiative, he commented: "Music is a huge part of my life and to give something back in this way is amazing.”

Mike Weatherley, the Conservative MP for Hove and Portslade, added: "House the House is giving young people the chance to have a voice, to be recognised for their endeavours and to engage with their communities to create change from the grassroots up. Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and House The House are great examples of what the whole music industry can achieve in an innovative way.” The show will be taking place on March 6, 2013.
