The Urban Voodoo Machine return to Leicester in this their 15th anniversary year with a very special show…The Urban Voodoo Machine – Christmas Special!

£15 ADV – 22ND DECEMBER – THE SOUNDHOUSE LEICESTER

The Urban Voodoo Machine are an 11-piece London band who come on like a raucous answer to New York’s Hazmat Modine. The lineup includes brass, fiddle, accordion, harmonica, standup bass and guitar, and their influences range from New Orleans Mardi Gras styles to gospel, folk-blues and rockabilly, with Balkan gypsy brass added in.

They are furiously energetic and versatile, switching from the witty honky-tonk story of a reformed low-life, Pipe & Slippers Man, to a bleak narrative ballad, Loretta’s Revenge, featuring Mexican-influenced brass, through to the bluesy Latin pop of Jimmy Cuba, or a stomping gospel piece, Help Me Jesus, on which Wilko Johnson adds guitar and vocals. Their main problem, as well as main asset, is singer-songwriter Paul-Romney Angel, who tackles his intriguing songs in an over-theatrical style. If he calmed down he would sound more exciting.

SUPPORT: Homeless Shakespeare!
Ragtime Gypsy-Blues, Jazz rock, Experimental Hip-hop, Psychedelic Funk & Puns!
