CAMBRIDGE rock band CaiMbo play a special homecoming show at The Junction on Friday. The performance is part of the regular Junction Fiver nights and the band play alongside The Runners, The Worldonfire and The Running Mayfairs.

CaiMbo's, debut album, was mixed in Los Angeles.

They look perfectly ready for teen magazine centrefolds, but their music's got a grittier guitar-fueled Razorlight swagger to it. The track London has an epic quality that has strong echoes of U2. Inside Outside Anyway is a more poppy track and far more likely to find itself on the radio. It says on their website that they're unsigned, but there's something about CaiMbo that any record label would find irresistible.
