September Janggaburru Sessions

Littmus Steampunk Band are a ragtag bunch of time travellers from the great Victorian Age of Exploration and Invention spreading the word about the joys of steam powered machines made of wood, brass and clockwork gears.

A mix of tunes from the Age of Airships all delivered by adventurers impeccably dressed in the grand style of 19th century London. Always keeping an eye out for any easy pickings that may come their way. Occasionally having to move on if the authorities get wind of them.

Littmus Steampunk BandThe band is currently made up of:
The Red Gentleman: Guitar, Vocals and Songwriter
Mungo Stoker: Guitar
Harbottle Grimstone: Percussion, Ukulele
Sir Mathew Cogsmith: Drums
Ruby Snow: Burlesque Dancer and Backing vocals
