Help The Men Who Will Not Be Blamed for Nothing reach the World Steam Expo!

An odd circumstance has emerged in the Steampunk community, with one of the musical standard-bearers of the genre.  Seems that the industrious individuals from the World Steam Expo have a dilemma - they are seeking to invite the very talented Steampunk musical group "The Men Who Will Not Be Blamed for Nothing", but... their lawyers were informed by some bureaucratic individuals that they were not "artists of 'international acclaim'/'extraordinary ability'")!  Seems that bureaucracy efforts in getting in the way of the Free Market is still alive and well - so a bit of persuasion is necessary to help "The Men Who Will Not Be Blamed for Nothing" to make it across the "pond" to perform!

(Oh, I don't need much of an excuse to post my favorite selection of theirs!)

In an effort assist bringing the group to the World Steam Expo, I'm hoping to spread the word to change the pencil-pusher's notion of talent to recognize their excellent work.  To do so, and taking the pertinent sections of the notecard forwarded to me from Mr. T. Downey, the head of Guest Relations with the World Steam Expo, they are seeking support from the Steampunk community to provide ample support of the group's unquestionable talent.  I would encourage a brief note to Mr. Downey, at, to find out what else can be done to help, and as always with the bureaucracy, written support is certainly encouraged!  I'll be working on my own bit, but with a bit of Steampunk elbow-grease from the Steampunk community, this outstanding group will be performing selections from their albums this coming May!  For more details, again, please contact Mr. Downey at, and as always, consider adding a visit to the World Steam Expo to your itinerary next month!
