The Wattingers, for all your industrial gothic weirdwest steamwestern, steampunk slaughterhouse blues requirements..

Here's the blog from Steampunk Confidential.

DETAILS
Created in 2008 by Martin Wattinger, The Wattingers are a 2 to 3 piece act often using synchronized videos in their shows. The music is simply descibed as 'Slaughterhouse Blues'. The Wattingers embrace the wild diversity of industrial gothic steam western steam punk and other  subcultures that exist and strive against narrow and restrictive definitions. We discriminate against no-one in our slaughtering, you are all equal...

WE ARE
Martin Wattinger- vocals , harmonica.
Ren Wattinger - bass and backing vocals (usually for gigs up north)
or

Our music is stripped down to the bare bones, inspired by the old blues players. With a black sense of humour, we lean in to the grimy underbelly of Western Steampunk and Steam Gothic, with influences from Tobe Hooper's Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Sante Sangre, El Topo, the original Night of the Hunter, 
Musically The Wattingers are inspired by: Prison 'Hollers' as recorded by Alan Lomax, Howling Wolf, The Birthday Party, Screaming Jay Hawkins, The Bad Seeds, Gallon Drunk, The Butthole Surfers, the Beasts Of Bourbon, Jawbone, Captain Beefheart, Seasick Steve and Tom Waits, to name but a few.
