Impossible to pigeon hole with a convenient one-word term, The Urban Voodoo Machine, led by the charismatic Norwegian-born singer-songwriter, Paul-Ronney Angel, peddle their own unique, sleaze-tinged, dark-edged, rockabilly-flavoured, gypsy blues and folk-punk. Comprising anywhere between seven and twelve musicians at any one time, and with washboard, accordion, fiddle, gong, mandolin, saxophone, double bass, tuba, Sousaphone, and even tie racks, thrown into the guitars and drums mix, their sound is thrillingly different and their live shows, once seen and heard are never forgotten.
