Cornershop announce first proper gig for six years
Cornershop are to play their first gig proper for six years, when they perform at London's Amersham Arms on July 4.

The gig will be the day before the group will play at the capital's O2 Wireless Festival in Hyde Park.

Cornershop have also announced the completion of their new album, the follow-up to 2002's 'Handcream For A Generation', which is set to be released next year.

The group have also told NME.COM that they plan to release two albums in 2009.

The band's last gig was at Jarvis Cocker's Meltdown festival last year, although they have not played a regular gig since 2002.

Cornershop are best known for their 1998 Number One hit single 'Brimful Of Asha'.
