Poet in the City Presents Last Night
London’s nightlife is disappearing, and Last Night is the story of those who experienced it, in their words and their music. Featuring the original music from Benin City’s second album, Last Night is performed live alongside poetry and audio interviews from London dwellers – DJs, property developers, barmen, and of course, the ravers.
Named after a Nigerian state capital, Benin City is Theo Buckingham on drums, Tom Leaper on tenor sax, and Joshua Idehen on rhymes. Joshua met Theo Buckingham at a squat party. They struck up a loud friendship and decided to make more organised noises together. They drafted in Tom to arrange their babble into music. Voila! As a band, they've been played and championed by Jon Kennedy, Jon Hillcock, Scroobius Pip and Eddy Temple Morris (XFM) Edith Bowman and Tom Robinson (BBC6). They have gained accolades and fans for their energetic live performances, having supported Soweto Kinch, VV Brown, Moko and Youngblood Brass band.
