"The Good, The Bad and the Queen" by The Good, The Bad, and the Queen

Steam-punk band, the Good, the Bad, and the Queen with a new video. It's sort of a post-modern revision of 19th century Orientalism where-in the exotic east becomes the political east. The images of Sufis (apparently) rocking out to the band's increasingly hectic tune speak volumes about our lack of worldliness, our unwillingness to engage others, and the danger presented by those who try.
