The UVM have become one of the greatest live acts in the country – terrifyingly bizarre, hysterically funny; a riot for the eyes and sensation for the ears: a sing-a-long, drink-a-long, clap-a-long affair.
The UVM came to Paul-Ronney Angel in 2002 as a fully-formed idea. He'd lead a band who'd play 'Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop'n'Stroll'. They'd dress in black and red. There would be a LOT of them. And their music would sound like a great night out in a dangerous part of town.
From the get-go, The UVM fused junkyard blues and stinging rockabilly with mariachi horns, fiddles, sinister cabaret and punk rock tangos. "I wanted to play rock'n'roll music with a different instrumentation," says Angel, "taking inspiration from everything from delta blues, latin and gypsy music without losing the spirit and attitude of punk."
Since then they've played Glastonbury, Download, Latitude, Bestival, Hard Rock Calling and toured with The Pogues and New York Dolls.
