Today I decided to write a word association twitter review for the other acts performing at the Raising Steam Festival. This is what I wrote:
Thy Last Drop – playing punk with folk instruments and singing songs about naughty goings on. Vagabondy.
Gladstone: bit ‘eavy bit Iron Maiden Judas Priest telling stories about mummies and madness in the 19th century
The Mysterious Freakshow: Double double! rocky psychedelic bits o’ punk ‘n’ 70s rock. Hedge Witch= great song
@Steampunkfunk Montague Jacque Fromage – What a beard!
@TheMechanisms character costume narrative storytelling fiddles and drums I am slightly scared of them
@BirthriteUK slapback Bowie psychedelic metal filtered through 80s new wave vampires arpeggios and plenty of wah-wah
Crimson Clocks: Folky jumpy fiddles storytelling atmosphere of dark red cogs blood and bad people do-niverse?
@METbandUK 1880s new wave numan bowie synth’n’rock’n’neon’n’rayguns reverbnation.com/metbanduk
@MissVonTrapp cello vaudeville murder ballads and scaring young children from the back of a trike
