British Sea Power are set to play a one-off show as Jonathan Richman And The Modern Lovers tribute band, The Modern Ovens.

The Modern Ovens will play Klüb Gütenberg on December 5 at The Old Queen’s Head, London. The band also features members of Brakes and The Tenderfoot.

The evening will see Roy Wilkinson reading from his book Do It For Your Mum. The first release on the publishing arm of record label Rough Trade, Wilkinson manages British Sea Power and is brother to the band's front duo Yan and Neil Wilkinson.

It tells the story of the band from their inception in the small village of Natland in the Lake District, charting their rise to success and acclaim set against the backdrop of a band as a family business.

The real Jonathan Richman recently announced a seven-date UK tour for February 2012. Richman released his latest solo album 'O Moon, Queen Of Night On Earth' last year and played a successful London residency in support of it. He returns for seven further shows in February 2012, which begin at Bangor's Hendre Hall on February 23 and end on March 2 at London's Union Chapel.

Richman will perform at three London venues on the tour, with shows at Bush Hall and The Tabernacle preceding the Union Chapel show.
