Atters Attree patrick Moore Chap magazine last ever interview“England’s best-loved and most eccentric astronomer, Sir Patrick Moore, has died aged 89 at his home in Sussex. In a rather disturbing coincidence, The Chap had sent Michael “Atters” Attree to interview Sir Patrick just weeks ago for the current edition, and this has turned out to be the great astronomer’s final interview.” Issue 66, 2012

My Dandy Balls

19 Jan

Michael Atters Attree Dalek chap dandy ballSince my posts of yore The Chap returned to the Grade-2 listed splendour of the Bloomsbury Ballroom (London) for its 3rd Grand Anarcho Dandyist Ball. It was an excellent bash which seemed to have been enjoyed buy one and all – especially a crapulent and rather rude Dalek.

The apparent gatecrasher chose to dismiss Chap protocol (it was not the Dr Who convention he thought it to be) by calling guests he disliked (and they seemed legion) “C*NT!”  (while orally “exterminating” them via a Dalek voice recording). The vulgar fool maintained his balaclava masked disguise (except for his creepy eyes) until carriages at midnight. Only then did the unsavory fellow reveal himself to be non other than me… Imagine my shock!

The following years event took the theme of “Eccentricity”. I did my bit as Master of Ceremonies clad in my coveted psychedelic 60s cat suit (woven from lycra, much to the repulsion of the sartorial purists present).

Last year’s Grand Anarcho Dandyist Ball was the 5th and lamentably the last. OnesTube has a taste of my Dandy Ball compere skills (from 3:55) HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3LtHv5ZEMg

Atters Attree Plays George The Magician in Film: Magic Show (2012).

14 Nov


Bit of an odd one this… Not exactly sure what it was all about exactly – but it was all jolly fun shooting up North for a few days and the crew were very kind. I play the lead (as George the Magician) and I rather like the creepy atmosphere. It was made for ELIA and awarded a special commendation at the international broadcasting festival: Prix Europa 2012 (Berlin).
