Sheer Music are delighted to bring back Brighton’s other exponent of Chap Hop, Professor Elemental to Wiltshire, when he headlines The Victoria on Thursday 21st July, as a warm up to his appearance at Salisbury’s Sausage Festival.
The Professor was quite a vocal supporter of the Remain campaign, and after the Leave vote came through, he rather hastily decided to retire fan favourite song “I’m British” from his live performances. This prompted fan campaigns to get The Prof’ to rework the lyrics to the song, which he obliged. This was only recorded yesterday, at studios in Brighton, which means we in Swindon will be one of the first audiences that get to hear this reworking of the song!
Nevertheless his fun quips with Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer have come about over their ownership of the title Chap Hop superstar, which has resulted in some marvellous live Chap-Offs (a much more cordial version of Rap Offs & an amazing video can be found HERE.) They are now firm friends and often host radio sessions together.
Finally, for those comic geeks of you out there, The Prof’ has a wonderful line in his own Comic Books (available in Devizes Books). Again, firmly in the Steampunk world, we’re now up to issue 5, you can find out more about this and much more below;
Thursday 21st July 2016
@ The Victoria, Swindon
9 – 9.30pm – The Real Cheesemakers
9.45 – 10.45 – PROFESSOR ELEMENTAL
SUPPORT comes from Wiltshire finest comedic slices of Cods Whallop THE REAL CHEESEMAKERS. Usually a 2 piece, the band filled out to a 4 piece specifically for Calne Fest back in June. They will continue to roll as a 4 piece, with that momentum gained.
