solo by The Urban Voodoo Machine’s Paul-Ronney Angel and on top of that there’s a boss video, a London release party at The Underdog Gallery (14.09.19) followed by a performance at the legendary, always sold out club night Gypsy Hotel at Nambucca (11.10.19) (“If you have 12 hours to live, spend it at Gypsy Hotel!” – Time Out).
The song is taken from their long player “Shakedown Gospel” (which received radioactive reviews including a 9 out of 10 in Vive Le Rock Magazine) and features contributions from Jim Jones (Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind), one-man Blues explosion Son of Dave and more. Following hot on the heels of “Joy” is “Help Me Jesus”
The Future Shape Of Sound’s rollicking contribution to The Urban Voodoo Machine’s upcoming “Friends and Family Vol 1” cover versions album. The Future Shape Of Sound are a 10-piece outfit based in East London, spearheaded by music producer Alex McGowan aka “Captain Future” and sax player Stu “Lodekka” Dace. Visualise a bunch of Rock’n’Roll, blues musicians and gospel singers coming together to rock it out in a disused circus tent! They have picked up plays on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music, been playlisted in major retail stores, and currently form part of British Airways in-flight entertainment “Empowerment” playlist. The band has put their spectacle on the stages of many smooth niteries and major outdoor congregations such as Bestival, Shambala, Secret Garden Party, Hipsville, Grillstock, Wilderness, and The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club, converting believers with shimmering choir harmonies, Hammond organ grooves, soul sax riffs, and Rock’n’Roll guitars. The stage can barely contain their spirit of freedom, equality and the sheer joy of it all!
