God is an Astronaut at the Club Academy, Manchester.

Normally a 3-piece band, God is an Astronaut tours with 4 members, the Kinsella (twin) brothers, Niels & Torsten, Lloyd Hanney and Robert Murphy.

The Urban Voodoo Machine at the Robin 2, Bilston.

The audacious Urban Voodoo Machine returned to the Robin 2 to share their brand of irreverent Gypsy rock’n’roll on a miserable night in Bilston. Before we heard from Paul-Ronney Angel and his cohorts we had a few songs from local blues/rockabilly band Dark Circus.
