Meandering Mic: Professor Elemental

Ending the year with a bang and hot crumpets, we interviewed the delightful Professor Elemental once more for our Christmas Eve Eve Special!
As a big fan of his first album, The Indifference Engine, I was genuinely amazed to see just how much the Prof has progressed in his latest work, The Father Of Invention: It has twice as many tracks, a wide variety of sounds & styles, a plotline – and a personality all of it’s own.

While discussing his album and comic we drift into spiralling tangents like drunken penny-farthing riders – bumping into Marvel, comics, conventions, community, collaborations and gigging as we go.
You can listen via the download below, or through our YouTube Channel below – it’s like having tea, honey and popping candy poured into your ears.

    Hello hello, Mr. Bentley! Stumbled on this interview a few days ago, and thought it might be possible to add myself to your list of mentioned individuals above. I am the fellow that designed the album cover and some stuff inside, and working on the exciting new Professor Elemental Comic Issue #2.

    I hate to seem quite so narcissistic, but publicity is quite important when you’re still a poor fellow from the American midwest, haha. If so, that would be quite lovely. It was a great interview, enjoyed it quite a bit.

    Thanks!
    – Dave

      Hello Indeed Mr. Perry!
      I’d be more than happy to 😀 I tried to credit everyone involved in the album (I know the Prof sure did), and you did some marvellous work on the cover and blueprints.
      Is wix.com/misterparadigm/petty_torture_productions the website you’d like us to link you to?
