LITTLE JIMMY & THE WRONG CROWD – He was such a good boy until he fell in with the wrong crowd. Teenage troubles, stabbings & acid attacks –it’s happening everywhere! This song also features a self-penned rap from James Brown 2 (yes that’s right, son of the man himself!)
LIVING IN FEAR – Released as a single at the start of lockdown when the whole world was literally living in fear. This song had nothing to do with the pandemic but was written for the victims of the Grenfel disaster, the Windrush scandal and the great general public who have been taking shit from the corrupt governments!
EMPTY PLASTIC CUP – You know that when The Urban Voodoo Machine start singing about ‘burning the planet at both ends’ we’re in deep trouble, right! Featuring a spoken word intro of an old Cree Indian proverb by the 9-year-old Rosa Marsh – daughter of the group’s much missed original guitarist Nick Marsh who died from cancer aged 53 in 2015.
DROPPING LIKE FLIES – Speaking of death, we’re all gonna die for sure – but some people just check-out too soon – this one’s for all the cats we miss!
HELL’S CARAVAN – Paul-Ronney Angel and Gary Voodoo did some volunteer work in the Calais Refugee Camp a few years back and befriended a 17-year-old kid. They next saw him at their show 6 months later in Leeds. This is the story of how he got there. Be warned, it ain’t pretty or comfortable!
GONNA RIOT TONIGHT – This song was written just after the London riots in 2011 and was kinda kept on the backburner for a while. We didn’t agree with everything that happened then but we did empathise with the frustration felt by the kids.
JANUARY BLUES – The worst month of the year surely! No-one’s got any money left, it’s bloody cold and you have to pay your taxes!
PILL-POPPING CROSS-DRESSING COPPER – Do what you want with your life – just don’t be a hypocrite!
JOHNNY FOREIGNER – We’re all ‘Bloody Foreigners‘ – this song was written as a reaction to Brexshit!
CARRY YOUR WEIGHT – Look after your friends – cherish them and carry their weight of needed. This track features our great friends Tomirae Brown, Jennie Bellestar and Norman Watt-Roy.
LAST MAN SMOKING – Paul-Ronney Angel: “Yeah, I do fucking smoke!, So does my guitar-slinging partner-in-crime Tony Diavolo – we’re great at it too!” Actually, this song has nothng to do with smoking – it’s to do with your rights being taken away from you, loneliness, despair and hope!! Loads of hope and LOVE!!!
