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!”

Is it just me, or is there a ceiling lamp missing from the 'showroom' this week?! :O

Many thanks again for a fab Saturday night! Raucous applause after each song from oor hoose! Shame you can’t hear us!!! Stay safe, big love from Inverness xxx

Nice to see you've smartened yourself up this week, a little 'sloven' last week. 🤔😂😂

I'm still hoping the virus will save us from the Tories.

Ane Please can you ask PR if you can do "Living in Fear" again at the end of the set for my good friend Deborah Harris Taylor who is watching in fear from Minneapolis right now, all on her own?

Dub remix yay!!❤

TUVM are one of the greatest punk bands in the UK without sounding like a punk band. Much love P-R and Ane.

Thanks P-R and Ane, brilliant as ever ❤️

Missed you guys in Shrewsbury then in Birmingham, but these lockdown gigs are absolutely amazing

just got back home and watchign it now!! Loving the intro!!! And This version of Jonny Foreigner rocks bro!!!

God bless you guys. Sensational stuff. Looking forward to next Saturday already.

What a wierd and small tuba Ane is using!? :O

Rum tasting last week,blood orange gin this week...gin has it at the moment .Thank you for the musical accompaniment.peace love and understanding.

Hope it’s on vinyl. Got into vinyl again in lockdown

There used to be a band in Glasgow called The Cuban Heels

I`m just looking fer a rope and some pills....

Evening all ❤🖤 glad I caught Paper Cup...cheers!

Watching after the live recording but thank you so much guys loving it x

Our version was certainly less rock'n'roll!😉

Thank you for another great Saturday night ❤️🖤❤️🖤

Wonder what tune would have resulted from a great weekend 🗼? xx

If it's can of worms it was me

Hope his fate was better than Henry Lees, down that blummin well. 😬

Can't wait for post lockdown gig at the lamb

All the silver on that guitarr will probably keep the tories at bay! ;)

Raising a glass to the fallen brothers. And loving Lady Ane on that souzaphone

Enjoying the set, but seen Gogol Bordello loads of times, very similar, and very good

We are getting dizziness from the blood rush to our heads from hanging sideways!

S'ok...ears work anyway round 🎶

For all those struggling with orientation. Simply lock the rotation on your phone/tablet and turn it on its side

My poor neck hurts!

Nice improv with the bucket!

Making Saturday night awesome again.luv you guys.

Hello you two. Greetings from Appley Bridge.

Hello Angel family! Please rotate the camera!

Unless you're really a fly on the wall ;)

You a as re coming out of the wall

Your house has fallen over ❤️🍸☠️

It's not sideways, it's a view askew, to pinch a phrase

do we have to turn our laptops 90 degrees this week

Good evening, (please turn your phone PR)

Beautiful intro

I have been drinking and ha is sideways!

Glad it's not just me that not receiving it

Either I've been drinking or you are sideways! 😘

To everyone watching, Set your device to not auto rotate then turn it on its side

Brilliant x

So how come the hats are still on your heads ?

Awesome again!

It's sideways for all of us Gary!

hope ane see its the wrong way

Am not pissed yet on my back

I love your Saturday nights, thank you so much, you keep us smiling . This Saturday is an anniversary for me and I'd love a dedication if you could squeeze it in. My father sadly passed away a year ago and I never got to say goodbye. Give him a good send off for me Paul 😉😎. You light up our Saturdays Fe 💋.

Best part of the week,, and play whatever you damn well like we love them all

So nice to see you Teddy. Your Mum must be blowing very hard on that sousaphone to make you come out

See ya then.. Paul-Ronney Angel ... have you considered doing you evening of covers when you run out of your own material? Suddenly have the thought- while listening to urban Voodoo Machine in my car- I'd really like to hear what you'd sound like singing Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory

Can't wait👍 Down by the river, always works for me Paul 😉

At last Ted might come on for a song

2 more sleeps Victoria Ann Bate. 😉😂💖💖

Libby Redfern just watch out for the live stream on their page 😘

Hello Sisters & Brothers, Ladies & Gentlemen and all you other fine creatures of the night!

We are back again this Saturday at 8pm GMT - can't believe it's been over 8 weeks since lockdown started now, this is our Lockdown In London Concert Number 8!!

Thank you all for tuning in every week - it means a lot! (and thank you for the tips - that helps a lot!)

So we've played through every album in full now and this Saturday 16 May we'll be moving on to the '15 Shots' album which is a collection of our singles - we'll be doing this in 2 parts so expect few more surprises and to hear some unreleased material too!
(Happy to take requests or dedications to you or a loved one - just drop me a line on the email below!)

As always I'll be joined by my wife Ane Angel on what she calls primitive sousaphone, avant-garde slide guitar and innocent melodica, and no doubt will our 6 year old son Teddy stop the show halfway through demanding snacks or telling us off for being tooo loud! 🙂

So that's 100% LIVE this Saturday 16 May at 8pm GMT on www.facebook.com/TheUrbanVoodooMachine

As always, tuning in to the show is free but if you want to tip us it's greately appreciated!
