After kicking off the New Year with single January Blues, The Urban Voodoo Machine released 15 Shots From The Urban Voodoo Machine, a retrospective of their 15-year career featuring all the single releases along the way.

They include politics and depression in While We Were All Asleep, Rusty Water and Coffin Nails, remembering the dead in Goodnight My Dear

& Fallen Brothers, a Wilko Johnson collaboration, Help Me Jesus, and a Latin dance number, Crazy Maria.

Describing their music as “bourbon-soaked gypsy blues bop’n’stroll”, the  band regard themselves as “a murderers’ row of rogues dressed in black and red”, led by the enigmatic Paul-Ronney Angel. Despite their influences, Angel insists that: “ We’re not Americana and we’re definitely not retro… I write songs about living in London right  now.”

They appear at Doncaster Little Theatre on on Friday, October 5. Book tickets at doncasterlittletheatre.co.uk or call 01302 340422.
