Like it. I'm quite fond of a bit of uke. Last night I saw The Pukes, a punk covers band comprised of up to 25 uke players (mostly female plus a couple guys including the bass player and drummer). Very entertaining.
 But I like the way you guys cover a wider range of genres. :)

I'll confess I was always rather fond of this song, and this rendition is also quite amusing.

First post definitely hasn't been edited in a long while.

I know especially because I'm so excited for Steam Powered Giraffe at Anime Midwest in Chicago. <3 <3 <3

Since Steampunk is referred to as retro-futurism, musical interpretation can include modern instruments.  In fact the sci-fi elements of Steampunk lend quite well to the usage of keyboards and Electric Guitars.  In the Melting Clock we use modern instruments to give impressions of a retro-future past rather than relying on a strict Victorian interpretation.  This frees us up to make music that can make just as much sense on alternative radio as it does within the walls of a Steampunk Con.  Another way that we tie our music to Steampunk is the overall story of the album, which is about a half mechanical man who awakens in our time and tries to re-create his lost love.  In this way he can exist in the past, the now, and the future.  Here are a couple examples:

In this song we use keyboard sounds to create an image of a mad engineer working in his lab.  There are sounds of steel being forged and Tesla Coils in full swing.  Near the end percussive sounds are combined to give the impression of a steam engine.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nz9TTuSLD_Y

In this song electric guitar is used to give a gritty undertone.  Again to give you the impression of a steam locomotive spilling plumes of coal smoke and steam. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXwf2PwOEX0

In this song modern sounds are used to make you feel like you are inside of a clockwork universe.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPJfcMGbJ0o

Whether or not our approach is a successful interpretion of Steampunk is up to the listener.  I just think that there is plenty of room for the use of modern instrumentation.  I mean who's to say someone wouldn't have plugged a guitar into a Tesla coil?!?  lol

Shame on me I totally forgot about these guys. Absolutely brilliant live, although they sadly appear to be on possible permanent hiatus at the moment.

I think Ephemeral Mists are great if you like the more world fusiony steampunk sound like beats antique, etc.

Not a particularly steamy video, but I think the music could be counted in the broad spectrum of Steampunk & the subject matter is.

I have to give a shout out to the Marquis of Vaudeville. This steampunk band is from Texas and is classy and fun to listen to.

Every Black Day

Live Tonight at Beg, Borrow, Steal, Carver St, Sheffield S1 4FS

8.30pm

Are we steampunk? Well, in parts; you might also detect elements of goth, folk and good old fashioned rock'n'roll. I'd rather leave it like that than be accused of being a goth band with some cogs stuck on ;-)

Cheers for reading!

There is actually a new group that I recently discovered, they are called "Aeon Now" more of a classic yet whimsical feel yet somewhat, dare I say raunchy? I believe they have the makings of a great band should they release more material.

I really reeeally do like this. Major Willoughby Chase posted it elsewhere, and I think this young lady has hit the nail on the head with this offering. It's a great blend of modern instruments, with a classic waltz oldy worldy vibe. She's really got a tremendous voice as well (doesn't look too shabby either which lets face it never hurts).

If she can keep this up I'm sure she'll do very well indeed.

Friend linked it for me, and was expecting something a bit cheesy... turned out to be a pretty awesome custom job!
Sadly, a couple too many 0's came between it and me.... >.<

Yes that was a shame, I liked him too and have no idea why he left. I also hear Bunny is now a girl, erm... sometimes, so don't quite know what's going on there either. There was quite a good little piece done by Geek And Sundry featuring them recently. They sure do look different out of makeup. Although I must confess to finding Amy Dallen a little on the twee side personally. If she ever visited me, I'd probably feel the need to hoover for pixie dust when she'd left.

^Yes. He (or she) Is transgender.

I don't really mind, as long as rabbits hat stays, and he (or she) can switch between costumes.

Yeah I certainly don't mind either hehe. Actually It all seems rather inkeeping with their general randomness, which seldom fails to disappoint. Such as random covers of Rihanna tunes for example ???
