Excerpt from steampoweredgiraffe.com -
"Once called the 8th 1/2 Wonder of the World, Colonel Walter's Steam Powered Robots are a technological marvel that has astounded the world for generations!
Created in 1896 by Colonel P. A. Walter I, these robots still run off their original steam powered engines and artificial intelligence. But you'll find no generic boilers or clockwork brains in these robots! How their steam-driven power supplies function is a secret that the Walter family holds close, and those who have tried have ultimately met disastrous outcomes.
Today the robots are all refurbished with better plating, rubber buffers, and hydraulic tubing. New parts have replaced any old ones that have worn and torn over the centuries, but the robots all retain their original chassis, and are vintage relics of unmatched engineering.
Of all the Walter robots the most popular are the ones who currently perform in the band Steam Powered Giraffe, whose namesake comes from Walter's first robot, a giant mechanical giraffe."
Their latest album is called The 2cent Show and is available for purchase on their website. (Give it a trial listen on the main page! free!)
"Say, what is that angelic metallic sound?"
"Its 'The Suspender Man' by Steam Powered Giraffe!"
"What a crazy name, but heck, I'll give em' a try!"
