Sheer Music Presents… Corky

Yes everyone’s favourite wurzel is back, and what’s more, he’s releasing an ALBUM!

That’s right folks, the legend that is “Wurzelrapfolkpop” parody artist CORKY has a début album out featuring his scathing attack on social media “One More Check On Facebook“, the west country’s favourite sport “This Be Skittles” and the best song ever written about Wookey Hole, the aptly titled “Wookey Hole” among others.

Possibly the world’s only Scrumpy & Western acoustic rapper, who will play for money, beer or chocolate, he’s supported everyone from The Wurzels, Professor Elemental to Mr B Gentleman Rhymer and plays pubs in the winter and festivals in the summer. Imagine the illegitimate son of Adge Cutler and Eminem, if that were possible. Which it isn’t. Damn.

Recorded by Northampton-come Bromham based engineer Gareth Nicholas, who has been documenting live shows in and around Devizes since he moved here 2 years ago, and had Corky over earlier in January with this gig being a launch pad for the Kick Starter type campaign to get the record pressed up.

You can see more of Corky across the social network; and check a home-demo recording on the video attached below.

SUPPORT comes from Jamie Cottrell aka CHIP DADDY, who some in Devizes would be surprised to hear is somewhat of a star. He’s toured the UK opening for Goldie Lookin’ Chain, presented backstage festival programmes on MTV and is often invited to Youtube meet ups, for prominent Youtube stars. If all that sounds a bit weird, then you’re probably too old, as the future is of Youtube personalities, of which Jamie most certainly is one. His musical is always reverent and tongue in cheek; whether he is poking fun at boy racers or his hometown, Chip Daddy will always entertain. 

Opening the night will be another silly, fun and local heroes THE REAL CHEESEMAKERS, which if the name doesn’t pique your interest, what will?
