Prepare yourselves – on September 16th a steam-belching, laser-armed, many-headed behemoth will be hitting venues around the UK. The Steampunk Record Label, the first to exclusively feature artists inspired by and influencing the ever-expanding Steampunk scene will be showcasing their hugely impressive line-up which will be as much a visual treat as a sonic one.
From the ethereal, bewildering spectacle of Berlin-duo Feline and Strange, wielding collapsible cello and alien propaganda, to the UK’s own masters of garage-horror-bone-rattling, The Wattingers, there is, as they say, something for everyone…providing you’re the kind of ultra-cool, forward-thinking audience Steampunk Records demand!
Also on show will be the nightmare gothic theatre of The Dark Design with their unique avant-Victorian instruments; the ukelele/pianny romp of Victor and the Bully; dandy funkster Montague Jacques Fromage; and not forgetting headliner and label boss, the ever-living and ever-gigging, BB Blackdog.
With accompanying light-shows, theatrical drama and a burlesque compare, this promises to be one of the must-see shows of recent times. Kicking off in Cirencester, check out the dates below and strap on your hot air ballooning goggles to catch them while you can.
