THE URBAN VOODOO MACHINE på Elm nå på Fredag

a refreshing blend of fiddle, bullfiddle, haphazard percussion and rockin’ blues guitar coming to your nearest bordello, bullfight or barroom brawl real soon…..

….they sound like Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart, Nick Cave and Johnny Cash squatting somewhere damp for the night trying to light a fire.

THE URBAN VOODOO MACHINE

The stars were aligning in the skies the night Paul-Ronney Angel was begged by a promoter to be the filling in a triple bill sandwich. Never one to turn down a knees-up, P-R realised he had 48 hours to put a band together. No problem. Trawling the dives and doss houses of London, he called in some favours, cracked some whips, and so it was that The Urban Voodoo Machine was cranked into life.
That was April 2003. Ever since then, this shadowy collective of ne’er-do-wells has been bringing the spirit of the carnie to London, sleazing around the capitols’ seediest joints, as well as hosting the now legendary parties attended by strippers, fire jugglers and degenerates.

Igniting a spark in the dark underbelly of the city, the fire quickly spread so that by 2005 appearances were confirmed at Glastonbury Festival, Lost Vagueness, Edinburgh Festival and Irelands Electric Picnic Festival. To give their audience something more than a black eye and an empty bottle to take home they recorded and released their 5-track debut EP "Ladies and Gentlemen, The Urban Voodoo Machine".
Their ways as infectious as their voodoo is dark, the desperate thirst for their wrong ways continued into 2006. Latitude Festival and the Spitz Blues Festival snapped the band up whilst The Electric Picnic made them the only band to ever be booked 2 years in a row. This year also saw them perform to their biggest London audience yet at the Lost Vagueness Halloween Ball playing to over 1700 people.





Legendary parties turned into legendary club nights and in October 2006, ‘Gypsy Hotel’ was born to coincide with the release of their 2nd EP ’With love from the Urban Voodoo Machine’. Once a month, the band headline and sell out an excitingly eclectic rock n roll cabaret. Such is the demand, it has become a weekend event unable to accommodate all those desperate to attend.

Their dark, delightful and twisted world continues to threaten the masses and 2007 sees them return to the sleepy west country and release more demons into the Lost Vagueness field at Glastonbury.

With the lurching sea shanties, debauched murder ballads and whiskey-soaked gypsy stomps, some reckon they’re from the stable of stallions such as Tom Waits and Nick Cave; others point out the ‘last gang in town’ swagger of The Clash and the hellhound blues that JL Hooker first dragged out of the swamp. But comparisons aside, as Paul-Ronney says himself – “we play Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop’n’Stroll and we do it mighty well!”

Fikk på mail i går:

The Urban Voodoo Machine at Download 2010

DATE: SATURDAY 12th JUNE
STAGE: Stage 4 - Red Bull
TIME: 11.50am (YES!!! In the morning!)
SET LENGTH: 25 mins

A strange time of day for The Voodoo Machine to perform - but it's a strange old life. The upside is that hopefully at that time, we will NOT be clashing with any other acts you may want to see!

If you're at Download and can make it along to the show Sat morning, your support will be greatly appreciated. Those of you who have previously witnessed The Urban Voodoo Machine live - already know what an EXPERIENCE it is! Those who haven't...now's your chance...hold on tight!

Many of you may be already familiar with the band from tours with The Pogues and The New York Dolls. Or from the release of debut album 'Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop'N'Stroll' last year - which was placed in 'Classic Rock' and 'Big Cheese' magazines Greatest Albums of 2009.

More recently The Urban Voodoo Machine appear on this month's Classic Rock magazine covermount CD: AC/DC tribute 'Back In Black: Redux' performing their idiosyncratic take on 'HELL BELLS'

Have a great Download and see ya at the bar!

Mail fra Paul-Ronney:

Hello Brothers and Sisters,

Six gongs will be handed to acts chosen by YOU at London’s Roundhouse on November 10, hosted by Alice Cooper.

So please get voting for us people, and while you're at it do it at your friend's house, do it in your parents' bedroom, do it at an internet cafe. Just do it!!!

Stem på The Urban Voodoo Machine!

….”I was campaign shouting like a southern diplomat”
Nadine by Chuck Berry

Of course it's nice being nominated for an award, although it's all bullshit at the end of the day – I mean for a start we're not really “A New Band”! And having checked out the other bands that we are “up against” in our catergory I feel we have absolutely nothing in common with them, so who's to say who is “better” .....(although some of them are better at wearing spandex and long hair than us!)
When it comes to my music I've always done my best. It being song-writing, singing, playing or getting involved in artwork or the many other task involved in running an independent band, label and club - though I didn't think I'd ever have to lead a voting campaign!
I've never been a competitive person, but since the awards ceremony will be held the day before my birthday (11/11) and the awards will be given out by none other than shock'n'roll legend Alice Cooper - I gotta tell ya – I really fucking want The Urban Voodoo Machine to win this, (or should I say I really fucking want to have a birthday drink with Alice!)
SO PLEASE VOTE FOR US PEOPLE,
it only takes a minute – thank you very much!

See ya at the bar,
Paul-Ronney Angel
The Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Party
PS. We've uploaded a new song called 'Swim Or Sink', to say thanks for your support - hope you like it!

So here's the first taste of 'In Black 'N' Red', the forthcoming new album from The Urban Voodoo Machine. It's a track called 'SWIM OR SINK', and we're giving it to you absolutely FREE!!! We would heartily encourage you to share this link with your friends, family, loved-ones, work-mates, mailing-lists, text-groups, neighbours & strangers ... as long as THEY VOTE TOO!

This track is only available until 6pm MONDAY 18th OCTOBER - Enjoy!

Ny video fra The Urban Voodoo Machine, og det er en av mine favoritter fra den siste
plata - Alone In The City. Paul-Ronney Angel høres ut som en mann et sted i mellom
Louis Armstrong og Casino Steel. Et lite hakk nærmere Cas enn Louis.
