Ready to take your Mother back round to meet The Urban Voodoo Machine?
Purveyors of what the band describe themselves as “bourbon-soaked, gypsy blues, bop ‘n’stroll”, the nine piece Urban Voodoo Machine have a raw energy and real edge that is all too absent from most of today’s so-called rock and roll.Their album Rare Gumbo collects various recordings from over the years that give an idea of what goes into their rich musical stew - from fired-up polkas to hair raising rockabilly rave-ups, from low-slung, lascivious Stonesy raunch to slower howls that would feel very much at home on a Tom Waits record.  But really for this band it is all about the LIVE experience.
Both times that the band have played the Wild Hare Club have been riotous occasions, with audience as abandoned as the band.

When Richard Met Debbie

Everybody knows the story of my meeting with Patti Smith but she’s not the only one of the artists of the New York underground scene of the late 1970s who I’ve met. Yes, of the CBGB centred scene-makers, I’ve also talked to John Cale and Richard Hell, exchanged grunts with Tom Verlaine and hung with Lenny Kaye. OK I confess to having engineered these encounters, mainly by blagging my way backstage, but my coming face-to-face with the Queen of NYC cool, Debbie Harry, that was totally unexpected.
