At Gypsy Hotel: 16-2-2013.
With guest appearance from Bobs Brain!!
The reason for this post not being a full on review is that one does run out of expletives to describe The Urban Voodoo Machine without treading over old ground. I've seen 'em many times & I fully intend to see 'em a whole lot more before I expire! We wouldn't wanna kill the pig with the same old gushing review now would we? However it's always a bloody good excuse to bang a few choice & not so choice shots up on this 'ere blog!
All you need know my cherubs, is The Urban Voodoo machine totally shredded it on this fair eve. It has to rank as one of the best shows I've seen them give so far! Totally loved the older stuff they played, which stands its ground magnificently alongside all the new, as yet unreleased material.
Now here's how you get a link in boys & girls!!
While this show was occurring in the ides of February, I couldn't help but spare a thought for my dearest & oldest friend Bob, who was preparing himself for an operation which was going to either extend or extinguish his life. You see my old mate had a tumour in his brain the size of a tangerine!
On the week of his op, I bought him a ticket for the UVM show in Hebden Bridge on the 24th may (which happens to be this very evening my dears!) & told him he'd better get his ass better in time for this show or I want my money back! Now there's a gig worth fighting your way back to full health for!!
As fate would have it, the old bugger's made a near full on recovery! Bingo bango bongo!!!
Not only was he awake during the 11 hour operation, but he also played guitar through a large percentage of it, hell that's damn legendary! Let's see Keith fucking Richards do that!!!!
Bob happy as hell on morphine!
