Presents Michael Chapman and King Size SlimThe StudioFriday 4 September 7.30pm£10, Students £5 (You’ll be required to present a valid student ID card on arrival at the venue)Michael Chapman is one of the true guitar heroes of this country, a troubadour in every sense of the word, raconteur, songwriter, astounding guitarist and a musician who just loves to play to live audiences.With a catalogue of 30 albums and a career spanning more than 40 years of touring, Chapman plays a blend of atmospheric and autobiographical material which has established his reputation for intensity and innovation as both a songwriter and musician.Signed to EMI's Harvest label he recorded a quartet of classic albums. LPs like Rainmaker and Wrecked Again defined the melancholic observer role Michael was to make his own, mixing intricate guitar instrumentals with a full band sound.The influential album Fully Qualified Survivor, featuring the guitar of Mick Ronson and Rick Kemp's bass, was John Peel's favourite album of 1970.

They actually play the music better than we ever did. Or, maybe ‘better’ isn’t the right word. But they play a more perfect version, with a more polished sound, whereas we always used to go off and play around with the music when we were in concert.” “We like to think of it as a rock celebration in the Royal tradition.” “I’m incredibly proud of these guys and it’s going to be a nostalgic and stunning night out for anyone who goes.”
