EMI's 'Now That's What I Call Music!' Series Opens Trademark Dispute With Steampunk Band


London-based Steampunk band The Men That Will Be Blamed For Nothing have found themselves on the wrong end of a trademark infringement accusation by EMI's 'Now That's What I Call Music!' brand.

The time-travelling Neo-Victorian band released their debut album 'Now That's What I Call Steampunk! Volume 1' back in 2010, and in January they were given just days to either change the name of the album or to face legal action. The band, fronted by 'occult comedian' Andrew O'Neill (seen on the stages of Download, Sonisphere, Golden Gods etc), canvassed their fans for a new name for the album.

The album will be re-released both digitally and on CD with its new name 'The Steampunk Album That Cannot be Named for Legal Reasons'. In the meantime, there are less than 50 copies of the originally named CD available for fans to get their hands on.

The band's follow-up to their debut album is due for release on March 12th via Leather Apron Records, and will be entitled 'This May Be the Reason Why The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing Cannot be Killed by Conventional Weapons'.
