Abney Park: (The semi-steampunk/weird genre of music group) :D Answered

Abney Park comes from an era that never was, but one that we wish had been. An era where airships waged war in the skies, and corsets and cummerbunds were proper adventuring attire. They've picked up their bad musical habits, scoundrelous musicians, and anachronistically hybridized instruments from dozens of locations and eras that they have visited in their travels and thrown them into one riotous dervish of a performance. Expect clockwork guitars, belly dancers, flintlock bassists, middleastern percussion, violent violin, and Tesla powered keyboards blazing in a post- apocalyptic, swashbuckling, Steampunk musical mayhem. - quote from they're myspace page

That's not what I expected steampunk music to sound like.

I'd have expected automated violas, or pipe organs. Something clockwork.

Like this:

And this one even looks a bit steampunky (the organ, not the organist):



Ahhh...


Woah! I liked the second, and fourth one best! I've always been quite fond of classical tunes, occasionally mixed with more beats... :D
