London’s bourbon soaked Gypsy blues bop’n’stroll orchestra THE URBAN VOODOO MACHINE have unveiled a new video.
‘Fallen Brothers’ is a tribute to their band members Robb ‘The Kid’ Skipper & Nick Marsh who died in October 2014 and June 2015, aged 28 and 53 respectively.
About the song, singer/writer Paul-Ronney Angel said, “It’s about moving on as much as it’s about remembering them. It’s time to sing, dance and remember the good times!
We will sing and we will dance
We will drink and we will laugh
We will not forget the past
And our Fallen Brothers
We all miss them terribly of course, but as a band it was never a question of stopping as I’m certain they would have wanted us to carry on. Really hope they would have approved of this video as they’re both in it – it’s been emotional but also fun to go through hours of old footage with them in it!”
‘Fallen Brothers’ is taken from the band’s latest album Hellbound Hymns, which made number 21 in Vive Le Rock‘s Top 50 Albums of 2016. Vinyl and CDs are available to buy directly from the band’s website.
The Urban Voodoo Machine’s next London show will be headlining our 5th Annual Vive Le Valentine at the Dome in Tufnell Park on Saturday 4 February along with Miraculous Mule, Bar Stool Preachers, The Fuzillis, Trixi Tassels, Brandy Row, Frank Sanazi & DJ’s Jim Jones & Eugene Butcher – tickets priced at a bargainous £15 are available here.
