UK Artist of the Week: The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing

We don’t care what the music sounds like, everyone should enjoy an obscure Jack The Ripper pun in a band name. Luckily for The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing (who will be henceforth known as TMTWNBBFN to save our fingers) manage to back up the name with some serious punk rock spliced with anachronistic lyrics. So, naturally, we chose them as our UK Artist Of The Week.

The four piece have a bit of a thing for Victoriana you see, so their lyrics always have a hint of the UK’s Golden Age about them—when children were encouraged to shut up or sweep a chimney, Gin flowed through society like water, and men wore spectacular moustaches. A bit like modern Dalston, if we’re honest.

They’ve recently announced their third album Not Your Typical Victorians, and if you’re a fan of their previous single, (which we were) then you know what to expect. Dirty guitars, punk beats, and a love letter to ’77, where the ink is so faded you can’t tell if it’s for the 1970s or the 1870s.

For now, have a listen to one of TMTWNBBFN album tracks, “Not Your Typical Victorian” (singular, not plural like the album), polish your steam-punk goggles, and beware tall men in top hats in dark alleys.

Not Your Typical Victorians is released via Leather Apron on 16th October 2015.
