The Urban Voodoo Machine came to singer/songwriter, Paul-Ronney Angel in 2002 as a fully-formed idea. He leads a band that play ‘Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop’n’Stroll’. They dress in black and red. There’s a LOT of them. And their music sounds like a great night out in a dangerous part of town. From the get-go, The Urban Voodoo Machine has 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 a different instrumentation,” says Angel, “taking inspiration from everything from delta blues, latin and gypsy music without losing the spirit and attitude of punk.”
They’ve played Glastonbury, Download, Montreaux Jazz Festival, Latitude, Bestival, Hard Rock Calling and toured with The Pogues and New York Dolls.
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)
