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.

Patti Smith - True to the Trail

Looking forward to the live stream event by Patti Smith at 3pm EST / New York time today (ticket details here). I didn't have much pre-planned this year (just as well hey?) but had bought tickets for one of her scheduled Albert Hall shows and so this is a stop-gap.

This photo was taken in July 2014 when I tracked her down after spotting a concert poster in Tromso, Norway. I was in town with some colleagues to join the Greenpeace Esperanza for an expedition to Svalbard
