Jarvis Cocker was among the artists who congregated to perform at the South Bank Centre in London last night (December 14th).

Beatboxer performer Shlomo curated the event, which was organised in aid of anti-knife crime schemes in the capital.

Developed by Shlomo at this year's Glastonbury Festival, the Music Through Unconventional Means sees artists performing their songs accompanied only by a beatbox orchestra.

The former Pulp frontman was a late addition to the event, where he performed his single Fat Children with the somewhat unusual choir.

Jarvis claimed the impromptu arrangement was in keeping with his lifestyle

"All my life has been lived doing things at the last minute. I pack my suitcase to go on holiday at the last minute. I always did my homework at the last minute when I was at school. I'm a last minute guy," he said.

Other artists who appeared at the event included MARTINA TOPLEY-BIRD, Teddy Thompson and THE GUILLEMOTS.
