Named after some notorious Jack the Ripper graffiti The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing (from hereon in referred to as TMTWNBBFN) are proud crusty cockney steam punks with a great line in old fashioned singalong anthems. Expect rousing songs about gin, gentlemen, Isambard Kingdom Brunel and some prolific swearing. In keeping with tradition they were the first musicians to release a cylinder recording since 1922, a quite brilliant move. TMTWNBBFN guitarist and self-confessed ‘gender spastic’ Andrew O’Neill will also be performing his unique stand up comedy and Birmingham’s own noisy goths the Killbrides will be providing industrial strength support. Anachro-punk, our new favourite genre.
