Filmonic posted an interesting article earlier this year which showed a list of the 11 (why that particular number is beyond me when 10 is a perfectly rounded figure) films ever made that have a steampunk element. Continue reading
Great steampunk adventures do not feel complete without airships, action, adventure and Queensbury rules. Attack of the Atomic Airships! is a fantastic book filled with adventures, mechanical wonders and an abundance of humour that would be a great read for most young adults. This book can be found on Amazon.co.uk brand new priced at £6.99 and is also available on Kindle for £1.98. Continue reading
Scarlet Butterfly has burst onto the steampunk scene in the past year with a unique act which involves moving around on a pole, making it look far easier than I’m inclined to think that it really is. One delightful summer evening, we had a wonderful chat about the inspiration for her character Scarlet Butterfly, the idea of Fairies and how hurtling to the ground at terminal velocity is actually a good thing.

While recently visiting the East coast of England, I stumbled across a small antiques outlet called Knicks Knacks Antiques Emporium which is located in Sutton-on-Sea in Lincolnshire. Easily identifiable by the masses of antique furniture on the pavement and the two mannequins dressed in period clothing, the small shop is owned by husband and wife team Robin & Jeannie Nicholson. What I found on the inside is nothing short of spectacular. Continue reading
The Copperfield Ensemble Project is an imagining of Victorian music played today: a cross between Chamber Music and Music Hall, this is Classical music to sing along to.
Born out of an experimental attempt to put the ideas Drustan Durman had bouncing round his head in the summer of 2012 into something he could hear instead of being driven mad by, the experiment continues. With Mel Orriss’ incredible musical ability and The Rev JD’s tweaks and engineering, Drustan’s slightly odd song ideas continue to reach reality in a catchy, breathtaking and completely unpredictable way!
The Copperfield Ensemble will be performing in front of 1500 revellers in the final of The Okehampton Battle of the Bands as part of The Big Party in the Park on 2nd August 2014 – http://www.okehamptonbattleofthebands.org.uk/ before undertaking the first leg of the 2014/15 South West UK tour, details attached.
From The Okehampton Times / Battle of the Bands Review:
‘The last heat of the 2014 Okehampton Battle of the Bands crashed its way through the Charter Hall on Wednesday night making it difficult once again for the judges but a great one for the crowd. First Band of the night, and winners of the heat were The Copperfield Ensemble Project. This Okehampton based outfit described themselves as Neo-Victorian Steam Punk and came dressed as the part. A string quartet, amazing vocals and percussion and a hauntingly mesmerising performance where dark cabaret meets theatre.’
As you can see we believe we are the most authentic Steampunk Band in the UK, bringing music of the time into the 21st century and will be playing at a host of major Steampunk & alternative festivals next year.
