All hail the chap!

11 Aug

A thoroughly good egg!

With great delight the Strumpet gals had an evening out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe on Tuesday night to see the marvelous Mr B. Gentleman Rhymer and what fun it was! If you haven’t heard of him (where have you been) he is the original chap-hop superstar – working tirelessly to re-acquaint Hip-Hop with the Queen’s English from whence it came (as he puts it himself!) The show is an absolute hoot – we urge you to don your finest vintage, like we did, and snap up a ticket – he’s playing the glamourous Voodoo Rooms until the 28th August at 11pm. His lyrics are hilarious and sharply observed, his rapping is flawless and his prowess with a banjolele…well you’ll just have to see for yourself! Highlights for Strumpet included “Straight out of Surrey” & “Let me smoke my pipe” whilst Wanda’s other half, Klaus, nearly fell off his chair at Mr B’s stirring, Russian flavoured re-working of Kraftwerk’s “Der Model”…genius! We might have to attend again before the Fringe is out – Mr B, we salute you!
