I saw an act on Friday night called Mr. B the Gentleman Rhymer, who has invented his own genre called Chap Hop. Sort of PG Wodehouse does rap. He raps to backing tracks and plays a mean banjolele. The place was pretty full and many people were in plus fours, sporting pipes and brogues were virtually a condition of entry. I chatted to him before the gig and he plays a lot, and all over the world. He’s funny too.
I thought I’d seen it all but are there other bonkers genres out there we need to know about?
