The A.B.See Of Gentleman Rhyming

The week’s live pick from Team Freshnet’s Manchester correspondent

Now I know I normally bring you a weekday recommendation of a weekend gig in Manchester, but this time flip things around and give a weekend recommendation of a weekday show you should head to.

I reckon some of you will already have had the pleasure of knowing who Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer is, but on for those who haven’t here is why you should make a B line to see him.

A (or Eh) – This is a term that you will be unlikely to hear ever being used by Mr B, as this could be considered bad English. Proper pronunciation is key!

B – Well of course this is his name, but of what does the B stand for? The answer to this is that I don’t know. But I do know for sure you shall B entertained by his own style of Chap-Hop music.

See – His short stay in Manchester will happen on Tuesday (10th) at a classically English boozer called the Lass O’Gowrie.  B there or B square. Let B entertain you!

Mr B’s influences are as follows… De La Soul, Flanders & Swann, Noel Coward and George Formby.

Simon Poole

Well this is probably the worst way to start off a biog of about myself, but the first thing I should admit to is that I’ve got some terrible taste in music. But panic not, I love music and my varied taste ranges from the bad to really great new music out there, and it is the latter I want to share with you at Fresh On The Net. Find out more…

    Many years ago a man at a record company invited me use my first two influential records as the starting point for a new project. He looked askance when I proffered Noel Coward’s “Mad Dogs and Englishmen…” and our relationship was never the same again. Poor fool.

  3. I can highly recommend seeing Mr B live after playing alongside him as Snippet recently.

    He is actually a great singer with fine repartee and songs that had the crowd rocking.

    This chat is well worth venturing out for tonight.
