The Urban Voodoo Machine – Dingwalls, London

The Urban Voodoo Machine takes over London!

The Urban Voodoo Machine celebrate the release of their brand new album “In Black ‘N’ Red with a headline show at Camden’s Dingwalls on Tuesday 17th May. This will be part of their biggest, most comprehensive UK tour to date, as they look to conquer the country with their unique brand of sleaze-tinged, dark-edged, rockabilly-flavoured, gypsy blues and folk-punk – or Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop'n'Stroll as the group like to call it!

This key night of the tour, at one of London’s most famous venues, the 500-Capacity Dingwalls, has been arranged for May 17th – Norwegian Independence Day. With singer Paul-Ronney Angel from Norway, and London’s Norwegian community in tow, this promises to be one hell of a party!

“Using horns, violin, accordion, banjo and multiple percussionists, the band veers into mariachi-influenced blues, whiskey-soaked country rags and punkabilly-style rave-ups.” (The Washington Post)

2011 looks to be the best year yet for the black-suited, red-shirted, London-based collective who recently received a nomination for the ‘Best New Band’ award by Classic Rock magazine. Led by the darkly charismatic 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.

“The U.V.M. rise above the mere cabaret, by simply being very, very good” (Q)

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, Hard Rock Calling and Latitude and led to support slots with The Pogues, The New York Dolls, Goran Bregović 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.

“…a hellacious swing that causes dames to sway and dudes to drink!” (Big Cheese)
