Professor Elemental, the legend of Steampunk Hip-Hop, girds up his loins for Hastings

Lord Buxley writes: Professor Elemental is perhaps that rarest of things: a Gentlemen, a traveler, a  taxidermist (his cross between a badger and a flamingo, the infamous Badgermingo, actually got him thrown out of the Royal Society of Taxidermists), a lover of tea and the owner of his very own Orangutan butler, Geoffrey. However it is perhaps his love of the syncopated Hip-Hop variant known as Steampunk Hip-Hop that he has become something of a celebrity, travelling the globe and indeed, time, to spread what some might call love – is that too strong a word? I don’t think so.

For those of you who have never heard the likes of Cup of Brown Joy and ode to tea, or perhaps, Fighting Trousers, a call-out to would-be pretender to the throne, Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer, then a treat is most definitely on the cards (indeed he even has his own pack of cards and a game designed in his honour, sorry, I digress) when Professor Elemental comes to Hastings on the 28th of this very month we call October in the year of our Lord 2016, at no less fitting a place than the newly refurbished Palace Bar. In fact rumour it not, this will be the first show in the resplendent surrounds of that very establishment.

Tickets can purchased, we believe, by that new-fangled system, the ‘internet’ at the very reasonable price of just £7, which in post Brexit Britain is now the cost of a small tub of Marmite. Do, do, do come along and we ask that the wearing of Steampunk inspired costume be foremost in your mind. And we have it on good authority that a prize will be on offer for the best outfit of the evening (I shall of course not be including myself in the competition, less the great outcry ensues that something was afoot). Time, dear reader, doors will be open at seven of the PM.

I believe links to videos are called for at this moment in time and who, dear reader, am I to subvert this tradition?
