September will be another busy month on the UK steampunk calendar with at least five major events scheduled over the next few weeks, beginning with Crich Steampunk Weekend and Steampunk Essextraordinaire VI this Saturday and Sunday.
Mr. B The Gentleman Rhymer released a lockdown-inspired video as Madam Misfit offered an environmental message in “The Wombling Song.” Meanwhile, Sir Reginald Pikedevant, Esquire released a new video after a long absence.
Chap hop artist Professor Elemental joined The Gaslight Troubadours in “Devil in the Desert” and had a prominent guest role in “Swinging Safari,” from Emma Clair and Madam Misfit.
“True You” is from her debut album The Elixir of Swing. She describes the sound as “Crisp Swing House” with chap hop vocals.
Professor Elemental and Mister Frisbee released “The Cat’s Pyjamas,” a new video from Let’s Get Messy. It followed a spirited rap beef with Madam Misfit over her song “Step Aside Boys.”
Madam Misfit, a frequent performer at UK steampunk events, is planning a June 23 release for The Elixir of Swing. Her sound combines electro-swing, hip hop, and rap. One track features Professor Elemental.
