THE URBAN VOODOO MACHINE

"the most exiting technicolor racket..done with style and swagger" 8/10
CLASSIC ROCK

Led by the darkly charismatic, Norwegian-born Paul-Ronney Angel, The Urban
Voodoo Machine is a supremely talented collective of London-based musicians
who have been bringing the spirit of the carnie to an ever-growing audience
of dedicated fans these past few years.
Although officially a 9-piece, The Urban Voodoo Machine's live shows can
sometimes feature up to 12 people on stage. The group play a colourful array
of instruments including guitars, drums, fiddle, trumpet, banjo, washboard,
upright bass, gong, mandolin, accordion, harmonica, saxophone, tuba,
sousaphone and even empty bottles and tie racks to build their own unique
and infectious sound. It is this sound that has seen the group invited to
play at festivals throughout the UK and abroad, including Glastonbury,
Download, Bestival. Bulldog Bash, Hard Rock Calling and Latitude and led to
support slots with The Pogues, The New York Dolls, Goran Bregovic and Paul
McCartney.
Revered by London's underground cabaret scene, The Urban Voodoo Machine
started up the legendary, alternative, monthly club night, Gypsy Hotel in
October 2006: the massively popular night is still going strong and a couple
of times a year the group headlines and sells out this exciting and eclectic
rock 'n' roll cabaret.
