Jarvis Cocker made a surprise appearance in London with CSS this weekend.

The saucy Brazilians were rounding off their tour with a special show at the London Forum last night (December 8).

At the climax of a rapturous performance that took in ‘Alala’ and ‘Let’s Make Love And Listen To Death From Above’, singer Lovefoxx made a surprise announcement: “Sometimes we call him a friend, sometimes we call him a lover, tonight let’s just call him Jarvis!”

The indie legend, currently enjoying a comeback, then took to the stage to sing with them on their track ‘Alcohol’ before the band encored with ‘Pretend We’re Dead’ by she-grungers L7.

Support on the night came from Shy Boy and The 1990s.
