Full Steam Metal Racket – UPDATE v.3

Full Steam Metal Racket – UPDATE v.3

tribe4mian - Full Steam Metal Racket - Update v.3

Can you believe how much has been pulled out of thin air without time to pre-plan any of this?  Only eleven days have transpired from the shocking official announcement of cancellation on August 1st to today.  Now here we are with the fourth (an original posting plus three updates) tribe4mian installment on the Full Steam Metal Racket weekend festival.

A huge standing ovation and round of applause to all who have worked tirelessly and around the clock to bring a weekend of delightful pleasures and merriment to so many saddened souls.  As we have all witnessed, life is full of unexpected twists and turns.  It’s up to each of us to make due with what’s been handed to us, to join forces when need be, and to never lament over what could have been.

So come on all you contraptors… it’s full steam ahead!


UPDATED SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:

FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE:  Full Steam Metal Racket PLAN B The Steampunk Experience that was at Alt-Fest Plus

DATES:  15 August at 6:00 PM – 17 August at 11:00 PM in UTC+01

As Part of the Whole Alt-Fest Event we were running “The SteamPunk Experience”. With its demise, we’re still running an event.

EVENT WILL INCLUDE:
– 2 Stages:  The Black Rose Stage and The S.O.P.H.I.E. Stage
– A Games Area, a separate Market/Workshop Area

CURRENT LINEUP AND TIMES:  Come back often to check as we’ll update as more acts are added.

MARKET AND DEMONSTRATIONS:  Open from 10:00 AM each day

YOUR HOSTS FOR THE WEEKEND:  Montague Jacques Fromage assisted by Maureen, and Lieutenant Jager Scnitzel

STAGE KEY:

  • STAGE A – THE BLACK ROSE STAGE
    An intimate indoor space for up to 150 people, The Black Rose Stage is inside the beautiful, historic Dolydd buildings. Spaces are very much first come, first served so you’ll need to be fairly quick off the mark.  First Come, First Served
  • STAGE B – THE SOPHIE STAGE
    Out in the courtyard, The S.O.P.H.I.E Stage offers space for a much bigger crowd who are prepared to brave the elements!  Again, though, spaces are first come, first served.

STAGE TIMINGS:
We have organised the running orders so that the stages will host alternating sets, with a short break between, so our guests don’t need to choose between artists, as they might at other festivals.

tribe4mian - The Dark DesignTHE DARK DESIGN

The Dark Design are possibly best described by the terms Steam Punk or Victoriana.

We come from a world much like yours, but where the romance of discovery and adventure is still aflame.

Electricity is still considered by many akin to witchcraft and the world thrums to the beat of iron, the hiss of steam and the click of clockwork.

We write songs about Airships, Paddle Steamers, Satanic Nannies and Mermaid Queens with thoughtful prose and with infectious melodies. We are currently recording our debut Album Twelve Tall Tales…

tribe4mian - Steampunkfunk BizarreSTEAMPUNKFUNK BIZARRE with Montague Jacques Fromage III

International Purveyor of Victorian Funk, Rap and assorted lyrical conundrums.

NOMINATED in 2 Categories:
– Steampunk Chronicle’s People Choice Awards 2013
– Best Solo Musician and Person to Watch in 2013

Often combining Victorian subject matter with a danceable funk backbeat, LMJ3/”Lord Monty” has created an entirely new Steampunk sound that offers a delicious confection of funk and soul interlaced with an occasional touch of Diesel. American pioneer/international performer of Steampunk Funk, the faux-Frenchman will be in MC and performance mode throughout the weekend.

tribe4mian - Daniel Malheur (Margit Louise Schwed)DANIEL MALHEUR MONOKELPOP

Berlin
The Lilly of the Valley, from New York to Europe, from the seniors to the Troubadour founder of MonokelPop …

Accompanied by the famous gramophone orchestra with its own special performance of 20’s pop art.

From a Crackly record sound, come famous dance orchestras, coupled with the warm tone of the Lord of mishap, they flatter themselves into the ears of the illustrious audience.

In his unique 78 rpm accompanied Karaoke Show, he kidnaps his audience in the golden or not quite so golden 20’s and the dawn of the talkies. Original gramophones, stylish accessories, breathtaking wardrobe changes and spontaneous comic repartee, make the charm of an evening with the Lord Saloon tenor.

Far from the “20’s mainstream“, from. Spicy foxtrot, seductive tango, wicked songs, let the perfect illusion of the 5 o’clock tea in the saloon style of the 20’s rise.

tribe4mian - The Mysterious FreakshowTHE MYSTERIOUS FREAKSHOW

As a a more mature collective (ah hum) … we have all had many musical adventures throughout the years and all work on other projects still.

Miss Pinkski works closely with her producer KIKI in France to create weird electronic wonders. The SteamPUNK Animal (aka Con Harries) is a multi-instrumentalist and our drummer. She plays trombone for the award winning SKA/reggae band Melosa and Skaper too. Phineas Gauge lives with his head in a bass amp listening to the heaviest & loudest of music and has a number of bands under his belt including The Toretz and The Two Hats – He is also one half of the anarchic radio show Revolutionary Radio. Mr Thomas Rosenbloom is another multi-instrumentalist who plays drums with Skaper and a number of other bands. This is his first venture into the world of guitar – and we welcome him with open arms!!!

tribe4mian - Ash MandrakeTHE ASH MANDRAKE ACT

Incorporates music, loop machines, stories and comedy. He designed the double necked guitar, hats and costumes. This is folk rock, but many styles are used. He has been described as imaginative; an incredibly skilled musician and songwriter; unique, brave, and completely naturalistic.

Message from Ash:  Let there be no pretences: I’m unsigned and I’ve built a tiny business from doing things that come naturally. I live on the road in vehicles and tour constantly. I started touring in 2008. I took three seats out of my Nissan Micra, put a futon in; and managed to do 137 gigs all over the UK, before driving it into the ground (I’m on vehicle number 5 now). I moved out of bricks and mortar in Feb 2012. This is the antithesis of X Factor. This approach involves putting one foot in front of the other; bare foot if necessary. If you really mean it, you’ll find shoes along the way.

tribe4mian - Jezebel SteeleJEZEBEL STEELE

MC and Burlesque Performances

Jezebel Steele is the inner performer of a mild mannered woman from Sheffield (although nobody would believe that), and anyway nowadays she lives on the other side of the Pennines.

She made her burlesque debut in 2010, and although she believes that it wasn’t very good it did make her determined to improve and get back on stage again.

Her style has never been described as graceful, but audiences seem to like her comedic take on burlesque and that’s just how she likes it; “if an audience laughs in the first minute, you know you’ve got them on side”.

After realising that it’s not easy to get stage time when you’re new, she followed some good advice and set up her own night; for some reason, it turned out to be successful and she is currently working towards her ambition of “taking over the world… one tassel at a time!”

She teaches burlesque and organises other charity events, and just sometimes she can be found at her day job.

Facebook


tribe4mian - Needle PoppetsNEEDLE POPPETS

The stripped sound delivers both power and intrigue, drawing inspiration from the likes of The Dresden Dolls, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Divine Comedy. Mixing theatre and punk, the music is risqué and often refuses to behave.

They have just released their debut album, Fame to the Nation, and are gigging around the Midlands and beyond – hopefully at a venue near you soon!

THE KING BAINS
tribe4mian - The King Bains

Deep in the dank tangled shadows of the durge nebula our hope was born.

When the rising dawn sun pressed her searing lips upon the fallen corkstone, and the wind set sail the sweet leaf of our stolen youth, the Leviathan was seen lurching from the depths with two warriors atop the mighty beast.

Bathed in steam and fuelled by fuzz they wielded high their beacon to lead the charge.

Facebook

 


tribe4mian - Red RuffRED RUFF

Red Ruff are an a capella harmony trio. Expect a multi-coloured mix of songs about everything from cats to car engines Red Ruff are Jen Aitken, Sue Devine and Nansy Ferrett.

We write and perform our own three-part harmonies, covering tragedy to comedy, sublime to ridiculous, cats, and car parts.

We made our debut public appearance at Wirksworth festival in 2011, and are now singing at venues & festivals all over the UK.

tribe4mian - The WattingersTHE WATTINGERS

Slaughterhouse Steampunk Blues

With influences from:
Nick Cave
Tom Waits
Gallon Drunk
Butthole Surfers
Jaw Hawkins
Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers
The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Deliverance
and general inbred backwoodsman dysfunctionalism

Facebook | Sound Awesome

tribe4mian - BB BlackDog _Adamx_GoldingBB BLACKDOG

The Darker Side of Steampunk Rock, Comedy Mini Kit set, as well as Main Stage Appearance.

A mix of German and English members with nearly 500 gigs, 5 albums worth of original songs, showcases in Hamburg, Berlin, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Denver, London, Birmingham, and tours across two continents.

BB BlackDog have become a live Band not to miss.

Using no overdubs, playing simple catchy music, remaining fiercely independent, and powered by a rapidly growing, loyal band of supporters, BB BlackDog are different, and that’s a good thing!

Official Website | YouTube | Facebook


BADAXE

Classic Origional Accoustic rock n roll blues, Comedy punk rock which is comically obscene, like putting Roy chubby Brown with The Mac Lads! But it’s all in good humor and just a laugh really.

No subject matter is safe from the recent Spate of High profile related convictions to Obama and His Lama.

Not for the easily offended, you have been warned.


DARK PATRICK

Psychedelic/Noir/Experimental/Trip-hop.

Powerful synth rhythms combine with the dark and gloomy sound of the hurdy-gurdy, the sweet crystal clear tone of the bandura and unusual vocals (in Ukrainian, Russian and English) that are sometimes sung, sometimes spoken, and other times chanted. Honest, inspired and experimental to the core, Dark Patrick’s songs explore themes of anti-fascism, feminism, anarchism, social injustice, exploitation, harsh realities & mental phenomena.

The duet was formed in Kiev in 2008, since then they have produced 5 albums, performed on big and small stages in U.K, Ukraine and Russia and have carefully honed their own unique style that is hard to compare with anything else at all.


THE COPPERFIELD ENSEMBLE PROJECT

A Steampunk collective of The Rake: Drustan Durman, The Dishonourable Reverend JD and The Rose: Madam Mel. They come with accompaniment from multi instrumentalists Tina Bennet and The Obligato string Quartet.

‘This Okehampton based outfit described themselves as Neo-Victorian Steampunk and came dressed as the part. A string quartet, amazing vocals and percussion and a hauntingly mesmerising performance where dark cabaret meets theatre.” 
– BOTB 2014.

The Copperfield Ensemble Project’s live show is an imagining of Victorian music played today:  A cross between Chamber Music and Music Hall, this is Classical music to sing along to. Every song and live show is an experimental journey, the experiment continues.


DR. THERESE AIRHEART’S AMAZING AUTOMATION SHOW

The year is 1887. After decades of research, bringing run over hedgehogs and marmots back to life, an extensive analysis of the human anatomy through Operation’s ‘Cavity Sam’ and numerous studies with Tesla coils – quite a shocking experience – Dr. Therese Airheart has finally succeeded. She has invented and produced a fully functioning dancing automaton, the Juul Victoria 2.0.

Incidentally, the esteemed Dr. has not yet been able to figure out the correct settings for the built-in free will module, so her invention proves to be quite a handful…


CONSTANCE BASHFORD

Also present will be model Constance Bashford, Captain of Airship The Peregrine and an iconic figure in the European Steampunk scene.


ALSKAER

Reading: Steampunk & Fashion
Helene Smits (Alskaer)

Helene Smits is a clothing designer (Alskaer) and photographer who specializes in fashion and making fashion. In her final thesis at the art academy AKV St. Joost, she did a research on nostalgia. The question of why we desire the past is for Helene a way to take a new look on steampunk.

With the reading “Steampunk & Fashion”; will Helene take you on an inspiring journey about the influences of the Victorian age on the steampunk culture and on the contemporary fashion. It is a timetravel of looking forward and backward by the way we dress.
Love to shine,

SCARLET BUTTERFLY

Steampunk Faery is my fourth act that I’ve put together and because I started to get into steampunk about a year ago, I always had themed acts that were always fantasy or Faery inspired, so my three other acts are the Fire Faery, Art Deco Faery – which I recently showed at 1930’s Berlin Diaries – and then there’s my new act which I’ll tell you about later as I’m still working on it.

Once I’d developed the original idea, I started to think carefully about how I would create this steampunk Faery. I started with a picture board of the ideas and it took quite a long time to get the whole thing arranged.

BREAKING Robin Williams dead at 63

Robin Williams

Completely gutted.  Have not been able to 100% confirm yet, but the news isn’t looking good…

Multi-talented Robin Williams died this morning.  The rumor mill is already spinning. Will post an update upon confirmation.

More to follow…


UPDATE:  7:38 PM EST

ABC News has it up… Therefore, I guess it’s confirmed…


UPDATE:  9:12 PM EST

A lovely tribute to Robin Williams by WCVB Boston.  The first of many, I am sure.

No other words or comments from me.  Truly heartbroken over tonight’s news.  May Mr. Williams rest in eternal peace.  I offer my two cents for the ferryman and ask to please make his journey swift and carefree…

The date ticks closer and loose ends are starting to come together.  What started out as an attempt to resurrect a fallen giant quickly evolved from a few bands to a powerhouse of entertainment.  The dedication, determination, and non-stop drive of the organizers and their assistants has led to a true festival atmosphere all spun together in a week’s time.

Bravo to all!

Tonight I will try to consolidate all prior CTRL – Alt-Fest – DELETE postings into one compressed, concise, fact-filled, and confirmed listing of acts and activities while in Kettering.

Friday 15th August at The Old Market Inn


MORE BANDS TO BE PRESENTED within the coming days…


ALL THREE DAYS:
There will also be some industrial/goth DJs lined up for your pleasure and are currently working on trying to help out with accommodation requests and family themed events.


WORTHY NOTATION TO HEED:
Under 18’s are welcome at venues during the day, but no under 18’s after 7 PM (I believe, due to licensing regulations.)’  <- If this applies to you, we advise you to check out the cemented-in-stone venue rules.  We’d hate to see a bunch of kids with no place to go because facts were not verified.


SPEAKING OF KIDS, this was also posted (again, we advise you to check out and/or confirm anything and everything when it comes to any event, especially ones involving children):

‘Hey there, Ctrl-Alt-Fest- Deleters!
The guys and gals of Kettering have been working hard again today, to bring you a great weekend of entertainment in the town following Alt-Fest’s demise – Just check out the new band announcements.

As Alt-Fest were supposedly offering a family/child friendly zone, we have had queries as to what we can offer for the young alts.

The weekend happens to be a great weekend in Kettering for the kiddies; The Market Place have ‘Kettering by the Sea‘ on Friday and Saturday during the day. Please check the link for details, and the weekend will be week 4 on the schedule, HERE.

The annual Kettering Carnival will also take place on Saturday. The procession will make it’s merry way through Kettering town, heading into the centre and arriving at its final destination, at Kettering Pleasure Park. I believe the Pleasure Park will have fun and games and a small funfair going into the evening. There will also be a family jam happening at one of our venues. Children will also be welcome in the venues during the day, but licensing regs will not allow children at night. We also have Wicksteed Park, a local attraction with a playground and loads of rides, but these rides do come at a cost.’  Click HERE for further details.


So there you have it!  Although we’ve consolidated all prior postings into one concise unit, here’s the links to all the originals should you be looking to see how far things have come within a matter of days. :)

PRIOR NOTEWORTHY SCRIBBLINGS BY THOSE WHO ARE WORKING TIRELESSLY FOR THE CTRL – Alt-Fest – DELETE MINI-FESTIVAL TO YOU:
Since the demise of Alt Fest, a small group of friends have been working around the clock to arrange a free alternative place to go (albeit on a smaller scale) for those who have already committed financially to coming to the area. We have been working hard and we believe that we will be able to publish a rough schedule of events later today. We have been overwhelmed by the positive reaction we’ve had from the public, the bands and the local community alike, thank you all for getting behind us. Kettering is a small town and whilst we’ve secured the biggest venues we could (or should I say biggest pubs!), their capacities are comparatively small to those which may be found in a larger city. We feel it’s only fair to manage expectations and so due to these limited capacities, if there is a band you’d particularly like to see, please ensure you get your spot well in advance to avoid any disappointment! We’re hoping though, that the breadth of the three venues involved, will provide you all with the entertainment you deserve should one venue be full. We looking forward to welcoming you.

^^^ MAKE SURE YOU’VE READ THAT… IT’S REALLY RATHER IMPORTANT.


 MORE SCRIBBLINGS … MAKE SURE YOU VERIFY EVERYTHING.  CIRCUMSTANCES MAY CHANGE RAPIDLY AND WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE:

Camping still available at Wicksteed Park, at reasonable rates.
 

and MORE SCRIBBLINGS (Again, make sure you verify/confirm directly from the resource being provided.  You may also pose questions on the official event page where a plethora of ‘those in the know’ … know.)

Want to come to Ctrl-Alt-Fest-Delete, and looking for accommodation smack bang in the centre of Kettering??

Good news, we have managed to confirm that Naseby Hotel, Sheep Street, Kettering have plenty of rooms still available at a reasonable price. Just contact the hotel direct on 01536734736 and mention you are attending our mini fest for great rates.

The CureHeads Charity Ball at Electrowerkz

The Cureheads Charity Ball 2014

We’ve had a lot to write about and keep updated for next weekend’s alternate festivity plans.

But what about THIS weekend?

This weekend would be an ideal time to raise funds for those who need a little bit of a helping hand in life’s everyday activities.  What you and I may take for granted is not always the same for others.  There may be obstacles, or there may be full-on inabilities due to limitations.  You’d be quite surprised at how many battle, on a daily basis, just to do the simplest of tasks.

Have you ever counted how many steps and movements are required to get out of bed and make your way to those first sips of coffee?  Many have.  Step by step and movement by movement. Now imagine doing that with almost every activity in the course of one day.  Now imagine being a kid having to do this daily.

tribe4mian - PHAB-KIDS

And that’s where PHAB-KIDS comes into the picture.  They have over 200 clubs through England and Wales for all age ranges… where activities and holidays become less isolated. Where you join together … because … well, let’s face it.  It’s a lonely world when you can’t just jump out of bed and run down the hallway to the coffeemaker.  (In this case, the refrigerator for milk or juice.  Kids shouldn’t drink coffee.)  When every day tasks take three.. .ten… times longer to complete.

So this weekend, if you’re in the UK and are so inclined… please join us as we cheer on our very own Gary Clarke of The Cureheads in his Pre-Race Charity Ball! Support will be provided by Arcane Winter and Stereo Juggernaut.  It all takes place at the Electrowerkz (Slimelight).

Here’s more details directly from The Cureheads Charity Ball Facebook Event:

DATE:  SATURDAY, 9 AUGUST 2014

TIME:  7:00 PM – 7:30 AM

LOCATION:  The Islington Metal Works aka The Electrowerkz, London, UK

Full Steam Metal Racket – UPDATE v.02

tribe4mian - Full Steam Metal Racket - Update v.2

Things are really beginning to shape up now… and it’s amazing how much can be accomplished in the matter of a few days.  Of course, none of this has been an easy feat for any of the various organizers and hosts for an out-of-the-blue event being held in just a few day’s time.

I tip my hat in recognition of all their hard work and I do hope you’ll make it out to some, if not all, of the amazing lineups and activities being planned for what is sure to be a jaw-dropping weekend of merriment and fun.

And with that, I do believe that it’s time to take all the prior activities and merge them together into one posting here.  With the frequency of updates and added events/shows, I can’t very well ask you to run around to several postings to try to tie it all together.  Hospitality counts.  Consider this my tea and cookies being served to you. :)

A note from your hosts:

Rising like a glorious phoenix from the ashes of the ill-fated Alt-Fest, the Full Steam Metal Racket festival follows in the DIY ethos of the true punk movement.

Created by and for the Steampunk and metal communities, this exciting new event will showcase a delightfully eclectic mix of musicians and performers – appearing on two stages in the spectacular surroundings of the mid Wales countryside.

There will also be a host of activities and an artisan market – as many as possible of the delights that were promised for The Steampunk Experience @ Alt-Fest have been rescued and transplanted into this new home.


As Part of the Whole Alt-Fest Event we were running “The SteamPunk Experience”. With its demise, we’re still running an event.

EVENT WILL INCLUDE:
– 2 Stages:  The Black Rose Stage and The S.O.P.H.I.E. Stage
– A Games Area, a separate Market/Workshop Area

CURRENT LINEUP AND TIMES:  Come back often to check as we’ll update as more acts are added.

MARKET AND DEMONSTRATIONS:  Open from 10:00 AM each day

YOUR HOSTS FOR THE WEEKEND:  Montague Jacques Fromage assisted by Maureen, and Lieutenant Jager Scnitzel

STAGE KEY:

  • STAGE A – THE BLACK ROSE STAGE
    An intimate indoor space for up to 150 people, The Black Rose Stage is inside the beautiful, historic Dolydd buildings. Spaces are very much first come, first served so you’ll need to be fairly quick off the mark.  First Come, First Served
  • STAGE B – THE SOPHIE STAGE
    Out in the courtyard, The S.O.P.H.I.E Stage offers space for a much bigger crowd who are prepared to brave the elements!  Again, though, spaces are first come, first served.

STAGE TIMINGS:
We have organised the running orders so that the stages will host alternating sets, with a short break between, so our guests don’t need to choose between artists, as they might at other festivals.

STAGE SCHEDULE:

tribe4mian - The Dark DesignTHE DARK DESIGN

The Dark Design are possibly best described by the terms Steam Punk or Victoriana.

We come from a world much like yours, but where the romance of discovery and adventure is still aflame.

Electricity is still considered by many akin to witchcraft and the world thrums to the beat of iron, the hiss of steam and the click of clockwork.

We write songs about Airships, Paddle Steamers, Satanic Nannies and Mermaid Queens with thoughtful prose and with infectious melodies. We are currently recording our debut Album Twelve Tall Tales…

tribe4mian - Daniel Malheur (Margit Louise Schwed)DANIEL MALHEUR MONOKELPOP

Berlin
The Lilly of the Valley, from New York to Europe, from the seniors to the Troubadour founder of MonokelPop …

Accompanied by the famous gramophone orchestra with its own special performance of 20’s pop art.

From a Crackly record sound, come famous dance orchestras, coupled with the warm tone of the Lord of mishap, they flatter themselves into the ears of the illustrious audience.

In his unique 78 rpm accompanied Karaoke Show, he kidnaps his audience in the golden or not quite so golden 20’s and the dawn of the talkies. Original gramophones, stylish accessories, breathtaking wardrobe changes and spontaneous comic repartee, make the charm of an evening with the Lord Saloon tenor.

Far from the “20’s mainstream“, from. Spicy foxtrot, seductive tango, wicked songs, let the perfect illusion of the 5 o’clock tea in the saloon style of the 20’s rise.

Daniel Malheur Impressum | Facebook


tribe4mian - The Mysterious FreakshowTHE MYSTERIOUS FREAKSHOW

As a a more mature collective (ah hum) … we have all had many musical adventures throughout the years and all work on other projects still.

Miss Pinkski works closely with her producer KIKI in France to create weird electronic wonders. The SteamPUNK Animal (aka Con Harries) is a multi-instrumentalist and our drummer. She plays trombone for the award winning SKA/reggae band Melosa and Skaper too. Phineas Gauge lives with his head in a bass amp listening to the heaviest & loudest of music and has a number of bands under his belt including The Toretz and The Two Hats – He is also one half of the anarchic radio show Revolutionary Radio. Mr Thomas Rosenbloom is another multi-instrumentalist who plays drums with Skaper and a number of other bands. This is his first venture into the world of guitar – and we welcome him with open arms!!!

tribe4mian - Jezebel SteeleJEZEBEL STEELE

MC and Burlesque Performances

Jezebel Steele is the inner performer of a mild mannered woman from Sheffield (although nobody would believe that), and anyway nowadays she lives on the other side of the Pennines.

She made her burlesque debut in 2010, and although she believes that it wasn’t very good it did make her determined to improve and get back on stage again.

Her style has never been described as graceful, but audiences seem to like her comedic take on burlesque and that’s just how she likes it; “if an audience laughs in the first minute, you know you’ve got them on side”.
After realising that it’s not easy to get stage time when you’re new, she followed some good advice and set up her own night; for some reason, it turned out to be successful and she is currently working towards her ambition of “taking over the world… one tassel at a time!”

She teaches burlesque and organises other charity events, and just sometimes she can be found at her day job.

Facebook


THE ASH MANDRAKE ACTtribe4mian - Ash Mandrake

Incorporates music, loop machines, stories and comedy. He designed the double necked guitar, hats and costumes. This is folk rock, but many styles are used. He has been described as imaginative; an incredibly skilled musician and songwriter; unique, brave, and completely naturalistic.

Message from Ash:  Let there be no pretences: I’m unsigned and I’ve built a tiny business from doing things that come naturally. I live on the road in vehicles and tour constantly. I started touring in 2008. I took three seats out of my Nissan Micra, put a futon in; and managed to do 137 gigs all over the UK, before driving it into the ground (I’m on vehicle number 5 now). I moved out of bricks and mortar in Feb 2012. This is the antithesis of X Factor. This approach involves putting one foot in front of the other; bare foot if necessary. If you really mean it, you’ll find shoes along the way.

Official Website


tribe4mian - Needle PoppetsNEEDLE POPPETS

The stripped sound delivers both power and intrigue, drawing inspiration from the likes of The Dresden Dolls, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Divine Comedy. Mixing theatre and punk, the music is risqué and often refuses to behave.

They have just released their debut album, Fame to the Nation, and are gigging around the Midlands and beyond – hopefully at a venue near you soon!

Facebook | Soundcloud


tribe4mian - The King BainsTHE KING BAINS

Deep in the dank tangled shadows of the durge nebula our hope was born.

When the rising dawn sun pressed her searing lips upon the fallen corkstone, and the wind set sail the sweet leaf of our stolen youth, the Leviathan was seen lurching from the depths with two warriors atop the mighty beast.

Bathed in steam and fuelled by fuzz they wielded high their beacon to lead the charge.

Facebook


RED RUFFtribe4mian - Red Ruff

Red Ruff are an a capella harmony trio. Expect a multi-coloured mix of songs about everything from cats to car engines Red Ruff are Jen Aitken, Sue Devine and Nansy Ferrett.

We write and perform our own three-part harmonies, covering tragedy to comedy, sublime to ridiculous, cats, and car parts.

We made our debut public appearance at Wirksworth festival in 2011, and are now singing at venues & festivals all over the UK.

Official Website | Facebook


tribe4mian - The WattingersTHE WATTINGERS

Slaughterhouse Steampunk Blues

With influences from:
Nick Cave
Tom Waits
Gallon Drunk
Butthole Surfers
Jaw Hawkins
Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers
The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Deliverance
and general inbred backwoodsman dysfunctionalism

Facebook | Sound Awesome


BADAXE

Classic Origional Accoustic rock n roll blues, Comedy punk rock which is comically obscene, like putting Roy chubby Brown with The Mac Lads! But it’s all in good humor and just a laugh really.

No subject matter is safe from the recent Spate of High profile related convictions to Obama and His Lama.

Not for the easily offended, you have been warned.


DARK PATRICK

Psychedelic/Noir/Experimental/Trip-hop.
Powerful synth rhythms combine with the dark and gloomy sound of the hurdy-gurdy, the sweet crystal clear tone of the bandura and unusual vocals (in Ukrainian, Russian and English) that are sometimes sung, sometimes spoken, and other times chanted. Honest, inspired and experimental to the core, Dark Patrick’s songs explore themes of anti-fascism, feminism, anarchism, social injustice, exploitation, harsh realities & mental phenomena. The duet was formed in Kiev in 2008, since then they have produced 5 albums, performed on big and small stages in U.K, Ukraine and Russia and have carefully honed their own unique style that is hard to compare with anything else at all.

SOPHIE LANCASTER

FULL STEAM METAL RACKET FESTIVAL IS PROUD TO BE
RAISING FUNDS IN AID OF THE SOPHIE LANCASTER FOUNDATION

The Sophie Lancaster Foundation (Registered Charity Number 1129689)
Sophie Lancaster was a 20 year old when she was brutally murdered in 2007 just because of the way she looked. She was repeatedly kicked in the head by a group of 5 youths aged between 14 and 16. Sophie never recovered from her injuries and died 13 days later.
The judge recognized her death as a hate crime.
Following the horrific murder of Sophie Lancaster, her family wanted to ensure a lasting legacy to their beautiful, bright creative daughter and so The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was established and became a registered charity in 2009.

The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was set up in her memory to create respect and understanding of subcultures.

The Charity has three main aims and objectives:

  • To create a lasting legacy to Sophie.
  • To provide educational group-works that will challenge the prejudice and intolerance towards people from alternative subcultures.
  • To campaign to have the UK Hate Crime legislation extended to include people from alternative subcultures or Lifestyle and Dress.
Sylvia Lancaster, Sophie’s Mum, has been awarded an OBE for her work in the Hate Crime field and for Community Cohesion.
Their inspiring work to promote inclusion, tolerance and understanding – especially but not exclusively towards those who identify themselves as part of the ”alternative” subculture – strikes a strong chord with all of our community and we are proud to support them though this event.
The Sophie Lancaster Foundation are not involved in the organisation of this event.

Full Steam Metal Racket PLAN B
(Posted 01 August 2014)

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT THE STEAMPUNK EXPERIENCE AT ALT-FEST

“As most of you know, we and a team of good people were running the Steampunk Experience as an independent stage/area as part of alt-fest. Now that the main event has been cancelled, I can announce there will still be an event hosted by ourselves. We’re talking to 2 venues, have backers, and another of the stages are on-board.

As the headliners have already been paid by myself, we will be running another event, and full details will be announced Monday Night. As you can imagine, there are a lot of t’s to cross and I’s to dot, so bear with me, but there will be an event on the same dates, and it will be fantastic.

Full refunds for Altfest tickets should be available from the ticket agents, and the new event will be much cheaper, (would like to make it free or donation) Although something of this size will have costs, rest assured we will keep our costings and budgets realistic, as we have all along. WATCH THIS SPACE, Refunds for traders not wanting to trade at the new event will also be processed Monday, as will applications for new stalls at the new event, ( as the new event will be cheaper to trade at, the difference will be refunded too
Thanks for all the support, Dale.”


For complete details of scheduled events through FULL STEAM METAL RACKET (formerly known as The Steampunk Experience), please be sure to check back on their Official Facebook Event Page or new Official Website. You will also find pricing information and transportation options listed there. Have a great time!
