    The “T” in “The” isn’t part of the typeface — the unicase design of Disturbance uses lower-case for “T/t”.

      Disturbance (or variants on the theme) is quite popular in the U.K. Example of this style is the Vintage Inns logo, although looking at it that seems to be in another font or with some customisation or something. To me the style seems to have a vaguely uncial feel, and I do believe I’ve seen the style used by some Irish business (a pub or shop or something) in place of genuine uncials.

      In retrospect, I’m slightly surprised that type founders in the nineteenth century didn’t try the style, since it doesn’t seem any more crazy then Caslon’s Italian or fat faces.

      The Vintage Inns logo reminds me of another typeface by Jeremy Tankard, the designer of Disturbance — Alchemy — but with tamed letterforms.
