For fans of scurvy, murder and gin; The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing provide the perfect steampunk soundtrack to all those terrible things we thought we’d condemned to the past. Deriving their name from the chalk message scrawled above a bloodstained apron rumoured to belong to famed killer Jack The Ripper following the murder of Catherine Eddowes, the band take influence from the darker side of Victorian history. In their own words; “ Crusty punk meets cockney sing-songs meets grindcore in the 1880s.
The steampunk band formed in 2008 and consists of drummer Jez Miller, guitarist Andrew O’Neil sharing vocals with Gerhard ‘Andy’ Heintz who also plays the musical saw plus Marc Burrows on bass.
