One of the best live bands that you will ever see! - Sells Out Every Time!
It has been too long! Them that done The Sopranos theme are a mighty fine live act! Don't miss. Alabama 3 know all about being outsiders. They've taken an outlaw approach since the day they first emerged from the free party scene to combine acid house with country and western.
With the blistering success of Shoplifting 4 Jesus and to celebrate it being rereleased with bonus tracks on 180g double vinyl, Alabama 3 have maintained their long-term commitment to all things alternative and underground. Not only have we stolen off most major artists, but also through setting up our own label - Hostage Music - we have encouraged other artists to steal off us. The Art of Theft Tour is a declaration of intent.
Consequently we will be debuting a variety of artists from our increasingly bizarre roster of talent. It is up to you, brothers and sisters, to judge the veracity of their contribution, but we encourage each and every one of you to bootleg, film and otherwise illegally document these proceedings. We will be recording every gig on this tour with a view to then collating individual photographic or filmic experiences, thereby creating live videos directed by 14,000 people.
In league with modern technological trends, we will be providing for the 1st time such joyous appliances as USB sticks, interactive t-shirts, and antibiotics for Chlamydia.
The song remains the same, the venues might be different but keep your swag bags open and we'll see what we can purloin together. Please avail yourself of the upcoming Summer In The City EP (coming soon) and we'll keep you posted about any developments we can drag (kicking and screaming) from the hellhole that is Hostage.
These will include: Kara Gordon and the Wreckage, Daughters of God, Science vs. Magic, IDK Sound system, Howling Filf and the Rent boys and The Vex - all pioneers of deep, dark and decadent DIY motherfucking spit in your face swagger.
So come on - paint your wagons and burn your banker, coz the twisted circus is coming to town and there ain't no safety net under the high wire.
Alabama 3 know all about being outsiders. They've taken an outlaw approach since the day they first emerged from the free party scene to combine acid house with country and western. Across four deeply infectious, darkly humoured, lysergically charged albums they've made impossible musical collision sound as natural as the swamp, They'vecheated death on the road to bring one of the most exhilarating live shows ever to have emerged from rehab. They've dropped subversive politics into sweet country verses and delivered sermons of love to the Godless masses. They've enriched and inspired the chemically charged underground through their counter-cultural, proto-situationist pursuits and, despite of, or perhaps because of all this, they've even provided the theme to the profoundly paranoiac Mafia (outlaw) series "Sopranos". Oh yes, Alabama 3 may come on like Irvine Welsh's house band stalking the gutters of ghetto culture, but they infiltrate the corridors of the mainstream just as easily. Like any good counter-cultural, proto-situationist country and western techno outlaw band from Brixton in fact.
The Alabama 3 script(ure) was conceived by Larry Love (Rob Spragg) and The Very Reverend Dr. D. Wayne Love (Jake Black) in the sweat soaked hedonism of the free party experience of 1988, blueprinted over two twelves for Nottingham's DIY imprint and finally delivered as a fully fledged sermon by the mid-90's in the shape of The First Presleyterian Church Of Elvis The Divine (UK) with its band of misfit disciples – The Mountain of Love (Piers Marsh), Sir Real Congaman Love (Simon Edwards), The Spirit (Orlando Harrison), Rock Freebase (Mark Sams) and L.B. Dope (Jonny Delafons).
