Dr. john and The Peculiar Pretzelmen were great recs. Also HellBlinki Sextet's Pirate Broadcast is worth a listen for a few tracks.

16 Horsepower are one of the lowlights (maybe a little harsh a term in retrospect) when it comes to this style for me. They're fine, but nothing special.

Peculiar Pretzelmen are great, Pete suggested them to me years ago now, funny how things come around.

I'd suggest Deadbolt too if you haven't checked them out. Not so much cabaret style, but pretty ****ing cool.

I know this is an OLD post, but wanted to reply anyway. While I agree that it doesn't exactly fit the Gothic MO (Mexican Funeral is how I believe I had heard it described more like) the lack of polish was greatly appealing to me. It just seemed more real or genuine, as if TB&TB would sound nearly identical through my speakers or by a winter campfire. It took me a few listens to appreciate Salvation and Western Medicine as there *gasp* electrified instruments! Overall, as one of my first listens in the genre, they have become one of my favorites PERIOD. I've also become a fan of The Devil Makes Three and Heathen Apostles. I'm making my way through this thread and trying to see what else appeals.

Thanks for all of the effort and input from everyone else. Going to make for some good fun listening.

The thread is so wide right now (40 pages so far, nice ), and the time is so limited (alas...) so I only mention Johnny Hollow and Dresden Dolls as dark cabaret bands. I'm pretty sure someone wrote them here already, but I can't go back into whole threat, sorry guys and girls.

But one day I will for sure.
Nice-looking field, where you can write inspiring quotes or other things!

Gothic country rules!

And I was woke up just before dawn
By an old man crying in the rain.
He was drunk and he was lonely
And as he passed by he sang a hymn.
And as I lay there listening,
Well I almost joined him in that song
But instead I just held my peace,
And waited 'till that old man moved along.
Then later on that day about
A quarter mile out of town,
I found his body hanging in
A grove of pines, swaying in the wind.
And as he swang that rope sang another hymn
To Jesus,
And this time though I don't know why,
I somehow felt inclined to sing along.

These lyrics give me ****in' chills.
