Latest News

So the scene was set with 2020 marking the start of a new decade – We’d closed on the previous one with mixed feelings, but with a 10-date UK tour set up in May to promote our new single Living In Fear things were looking good! Then came Corona Virus…WTF is that! Well now we all know, and what with our busy tour schedule evaporating into thin-air, the release date for our aptly titled single Living In Fear has been brought forward a month.

The song originally came to life long before there was anything called Covid-19 and is more an observation of the world gone wrong with its references to recent Great British scandals like Windrush (“They’re shipping them back to where they came from”) and Grenfell (“It’s hard to sleep in a plastic tower”). To quote Paul-Ronney Angel “Living in fear . . . wow, never in my wildest imagination did I expect to live through something like this – talking about literally the whole world LIVING IN FEAR!”

Hello Sisters & Brothers,
Here we go - week 37 and episode 37 of Live In Lockdown London!

We have been very lucky to have so many of our talented friends joining us on the show, and up until now we've kept it a secret who would guest with us!

From now on though we will spill the beans, so without further ado give it up for Rock'n'roll Gentleman Party Animal Number One Mr Tom Spencer who will join us this Saturday!

Tom and I go back years, 1998 if my memory serves me right - in that time Tom has played in several bands (including The Urban Voodoo Machine from time to time) and his current main gig is with Sex Pistol Paul Cook in The Professionals.

I hope you will join us again for more music, mayhem and stories as we come at you 100% live from our living room!

Paul-Ronney Angel with Ane Angel and very special guest Tom Spencer!

When I purchased that singing James Brown statue like 15 or 20 years ago I never imagine his wife would ever be holding him.

PR’s good with hamsters.

I like how the comments stopped during the song!

PR has some amazing friends.

You love it ... really .. kale juice 😂😂

Thanks for a a fantastic show all you lovely people! ❤️Xxx

Great to have post to look forward to next week 🎶

I would love tooo meet u all at a live consert in the. future...

glad they are all available to watch later! I am at work

Do you the difference between a cd, dvd, VD, pcp, PeePee, DVDA, PVC, LSD, & THC?

This kale juice thing is getting more irritating than Ginger Baker's bloody brushes 🤣🤣🤣

If we were all at an actual live UVM gig, we'd all telling each other to shut the f**k up and listen to the music. Isn't all this chat great? 👏👏

Let's all post wonky picture pictures! See who cracks first!!!

Oh sheesh...FB stuck me good 2nite! I couldn't get you guys. Here now tho...phew...

Actually I think PR got there first mentioning it in One Ghost Town.

Hey Sue Chadwick and Paul Dubbelman. Hope you're both well and staying safe and happy 🥰♥️🍷xxx

Never any bad songs on Saturday UVM!

God bye to another year - tusen takk til dere alle for flott underholdning. Nattaklemmer til Teddygutten!

Great to see PR just enjoying playing and to hear such a great voice.

Thanks again, all the die hard fans are still here! Next week 👍👍👍

This is a local live feed, for local people. We didn't burn him!!!!!

***NEW T-SHIRT***
A 2020 Tour T-Shirt? Are you having a laugh?

Well, P-R Angel wasn't going to let the barren hellscape of 2020 silence the music, he managed to play all of these shows in 2020!

It started out so well with a few solo shows, then a couple of shows with The Urban Voodoo Machine before heading to the US for a tour with legendary guitar slinger Danny B Harvey......and then... well as you can see there have been a lot of shows ONLINE!! They are all on there, including the names of the guests!! It's been a Helluva year and we're grateful to have had each other and the music to keep us going.

Paul-Ronney Angel & Tomirae Brown - Seven Spanish Angels
- New single out 27 November 2020 (DL/CD/Video)

Paul-Ronney Angel is the singer and songwriter for London’s The Urban Voodoo Machine since 2003 - he released his debut solo single One Ghost Town in July.

Tomirae Brown is the widow of the Godfather of Soul, Mr James Brown as well as his touring partner and lead backing vocalist for over a decade right up to his untimely death in 2006.

Since they first met in 2015, Paul-Ronney Angel and Tomirae Brown has done several live performances together, including the Vive Le Rock Awards.

It’s only now due to COVID-19 restrictions that Mr. Angel (the leader of a nine-piece band) along with Mrs. Brown (who is about to launch her seven-piece band) have decided to release a single together.

Mr Angel: With all touring being off and it not being possible to gather in large groups, the time was perfect to do this. We recorded with Alex McGowan at London's Space Eko Studio where we had both worked with our bands.

Seven Spanish Angels was originally a duet by Ray Charles & Wille Nelson and this dynamic duo takes this great song into the unpredictable future of these strange times.

Mr Angel:
'It’s been great working with Tomirae on this song - she’s got such an amazing voice and a whole lotta stories to go with it!!
I can’t wait to collaborate on some original material soon!

Mrs. Brown:
“I couldn’t help but think by the time we wrapped the shoot that P-R Angel was actually the first of the Seven Angels! I can’t wait to write and perform again with him in the future. I believe we’re up to a grand start with this timeless classic!'

Paul-Ronney Angel has a new album in the can with his band The Urban Voodoo Machine called Snake Oil Engine that features Tomirae Brown as well as her 19-year-old son James Brown 2 that will be released as soon as they will be able to tour.

Tomirae Brown has lived in the UK for the last 5 years and was about to launch her solo carrier just as lockdown happened. Her debut solo album entitled Strong is very much ready to go as soon as she can hit the road with her new band!
