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.
Magazines and newspapers have lauded them for their ?mariachi-influenced blues, whiskey-soaked country rags and punkabilly-style rave-ups? (The Washington Post) and noted that they?re ?drawing deep from a dirty well where Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Dick Dale are enjoying a burlesque all-nighter with Ennio Morricone" (Classic Rock). They became one of the few bands that could appear on Clive Anderson?s Loose Ends on BBC Radio 4 and Britain?s biggest heavy metal festival Download in the same year and win at both.
