The Dead Victorians is a british music-hall band, based in London (UK) and composed of 4 musicians : Maestro Paul Tkachenko, Dr. Matthew Blake, Rupert and Mr. Sandiford.
They play many instruments, including tuba, guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, accordion, winds ... and some others they classify in the « Strange » section.
The strange instruments are, notably, Stephen the Sheep (« a fully playable singing sheep ») and the Dogphonium (on which the mouth piece is underneath the tail...).
They also include in this section a musical saw, a washboard, and many whistles and percussions. The nose flute shines by its absence, since it is used by the Dead Victorians too, as you can see in the following video (we sincerely hope this omission in the list will soon be redressed!).
Oh!! I just forget to write that the Dead Victorians are very talented musicians, and that you can get more info on the Dead Victorians's website and listen to their music :
