The Urban Voodoo Machine


The Urban Voodoo Machine came to Paul-Ronney Angel in 2002 as a fully-formed idea. He'd lead a band who'd play ‘Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop’n’Stroll’. They’d dress in black and red. There would be a LOT of them. And their music would sound like a great night out in a dangerous part of town. From the get-go, The UVM fused junkyard blues and stinging rockabilly with mariachi horns, fiddles, sinister cabaret and punk rock tangos. 'I wanted to play rock'n'roll music with different instrumentation,' says Angel, 'taking inspiration from everything from delta blues, latin and gypsy music without losing the spirit and attitude of punk.' His lyrics – part Lemmy, part Bob Dylan – made other (more acclaimed) songwriters sound totally boring.
