VOODOO¹S TOO OLD SAYS EX-PISTOL!  Former I¹m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here star and Country Life Butter campaigner John Lydon has refused to have The Urban Voodoo Machine open up for him on the grounds of them being too old! The message to the UK promoter who tried to sell the UVM as support act to Lydon¹s Public Image Ltd was clear, he stated ³young bands only!² The Urban Voodoo Machine are a London based ³Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop¹n' Stroll² collective, who¹s up to 12 member strong line-up, has a combined age of well over 400 years! The UVM¹s frontman, Paul-Ronney Angel is aged 37, 16 years Lydon¹s junior!   53 year old ginger mop top Lydon started his career with the Sex Pistols under the name Johnny Rotten, a name he clearly still tries to live up to! The Sex Pistols stole their sound from the New York Dolls, a band The Urban Voodoo Machine played support to only last week.  The Urban Voodoo Machine¹s debut album ³Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop¹n'Stroll² is rated no 38 in Classic Rock Magazine¹s Top 50 albums of 2009, Lydon has not released any new albums with either of his 2 projects this decade.  What a fucking rotter!   PIL is touring the UK this week.
