A lawman, a time-traveler, a gentleman explorer, and a mad genius join forces to unite the twin forces of scientific romance and rock in an explosive concoction of aural delights. Take a dimension-spanning musical journey with Atlanta's own analog steampunk band, The Extraordinary Contraptions. Ranging from silly love songs through dark, seething explorations of power to their characters' own epically orchestrated tales of victorian-influenced sci-fi, this quartet of aural anachronisms will roll up their shirtsleeves, bustle their petticoats and crank the temporal bi-resonator to eleven to put on the best show in this time stream or any other. No electricity? No worries, darlings. The Contraptions are equally renowned for their unplugged performances. Their acoustic instruments are rumored to go to twelve!

Veterans of Momocon and Anachrocon, receiving regular play on The Clockwork Cabaret radio show and excited to be playing at Michigan's first World Steam Expo this summer, the Contraptions are spending 2010 (as measured linearly) splitting their efforts between performing in support of their debut album, Inappropriate on Purpose, and producing their followup release, Scratch The Aether, due out in late March. On both records, The Extraordinary Contraptions strive to combine the rock & roll aesthetic and the steampunk DIY ethic to produce their own quirky, guitar-driven vision of the retro-future.
