Sir Reginald Pikedevant Esquire

Sir Reginald is a chap hop performer best known for his music video, “Just Glue Some Gears On It (And Call It Steampunk).” It has drawn more than 1.1 million views on YouTube.

He defines “chap hop” as rap music as if it were “written and performed by an upper-class British twit.”

His rhymes, he says, are combined “with the sounds of the Victorian music-hall, Barbershop quartets, and instruments both modern and vintage, both mundane and unusual.”
