Fun-Da-Mental Go Mental At London's ICA (May 17)

Dissident Brit rappers Fun-Da-Mental perform a rare London date this weekend (Saturday 17), headlining the Movement of the People event at the ICA (The Mall).

The night is intended to celebrate musical fusions created when ethnic groups come together in urban areas and includes additional music from Afrobeat crew the Shrine Synchro System and Anglo-asian dubmeister DJ Swam. American icon Mr T of A Team fame should presumably be coming out at the show, after Muzik magazine identified him from the band's latest press shots in their new issue.

Not on the bill though are seminal punk rockers The Exploited, who Fun-Da-Mental eulogised this week for their seminal political treatise 'Fuck The USA'.

"Proves you don't have to be intelligent to speak out against the USA," they quipped (Muzik).

NB : Rumours suggest Fun-Da-Mental's Mr T could be an imposter/ look-a-like called Dave, though reports remain unconfirmed.
