Just seen this fantastic emporium of the very latest technology : I highly reccommend this to your inspection. I am particularly taken with the home made analogue computers, in the style of the excellent Mr Babbage and Countess Lovelace of the immortal memory.

Thomas Truax in Glasgow

I joined a select few to hear Thomas Truax play his amazing steampunk instruments in the basement of the Twisted Wheel in Glasgow last night. Not actually really a steampunk event as such. I took my goggles but no one else was in steampunk regalia sadly.

I enjoyed the event but it was very short, sadly and could have done with better promotion. Having said that, however, the city seemed comparatively deserted for a Saturday evening, so perhaps the small audience was a problem right across venues in town.

He has his two CDs with him so you can save yourself the postage if you can get along to his other dates.

His other dates are:
14 Dec, Sun, Edinburgh, Hobo at The Bongo Club, 37 Holyrood Rd

15 Dec, Mon, Sheffield, Grapes 80 Trippet Lane

16 Dec, Tues, Hull, Adelphi 89 DeGrey

Please support him if you can!
