One Love, Reggae and Roots
Your fearless an' intrepid host, Atticus Oldman is intent upon a journey through the vilest gin bars, absynthe cellars, bawdy-hooses an' bedlams to seek out, or if necessary, hunt down the finest musical mischiefeers and artistic merrymakers from all 5 corners of the globe in a sonic celebration of Steampunk chicanery!
With steam-themed news, interviews, reviews and special features, the Absinthe Affair is intended to bring a little old fashioned (very old fashioned) joy and gladness to these dark and digital evenings!

Founder and host of the Steampunk Almanac, Atticus Oldman is an artist, designer and digital educator based in the west of Edinburgh. A life-long passion for victorian art and culture, combined with a flare for the theatrical and creative, eventually culminated in the establishment of the online Steampunk Almanac Of Atticus Oldman.
A core element of Atticus's work is to encourage the expanding list of outstandingly diverse steampunk-themed bands, musicians and musical performers to include the north of the UK in their tour arrangements. To further assist this ambition, Atticus has recently embarked on a mission to promote Steampunk music, arts and events to a wider audience via the digital airways by way of 'The Absinthe Affair' - A two hour aether-broadcast recorded in a secret broadcast airship high in the skies over Auld Reekie!
