The Urban Voodoo Machine is a collective of shadowy, London based, ne’er do wells, led by Norwegian born songwriter/frontman Paul-Ronney Angel.
Featuring up to twelve musicians at any given time, The ‘Machine mash-up guitars, twin drumers, fiddle, trumpet, tuba, banjo, washboard, upright bass, gong, mandolin, accordion, harmonicas, saxophone, sousaphone and even empty bottles and tie racks to create their unique brand of Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop’n’Stroll.
“With their lurching sea shanties, debauched murder ballads, messed-up tangos and whiskey-soaked gypsy stomps, some reckon they’re from the same stable of stallions as Tom Waits and Nick Cave; others point out the last gang in town swagger of The Clash and the hellbound blues that John Lee Hooker first dragged out of the swamp”.
Major festival appearances include Glastonbury, Download, Latitude, Edinburgh, Bestival, and Bulldog Bash.
THE URBAN VOODOO MACHINE PLAY THE COURTYARD ON FRIDAY 3RD JUNE 2016. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE HERE.
