Alabama 3 Acoustic

Heeding Woodie Guthrie’s maxim, Alabama 3 have never feared the reduction of their technology. Consequently, Alabama 3 acoustic is brave enough to go out on the road armed only with a battered acoustic guitar and harmonica, preaching Guthrie’s word that ‘this machine kills fascists.’

In homage to the classic delta blues slide players like Mississippi Fred McDowell, Howling Wolf, John Lee Hooker and their own Rockfree Base (though not in that pantheon of greats), we present our own narco-acoustic slant on Alabama 3 and the music that has inspired us along the way.

Complete with Larry Love’s gravelly ash-stained vocals, Nick Reynolds bank robber melodies on harmonica, they provide a raucous show, which is in no way constrained by the boring maxim that often goes with acoustic gigs!

An unrivaled Marxist machine gun, Alabama 3 Acoustic are on a mission to get you mashed.

Support: Ese and the Vooduu People

South Londoner Ese Okorodudu has seen it all, done most of it. Graduating from London’s most demanding performing arts school — the streets, as a busker — songwriter Ese (vocals, guitar) is backed by the incendiary Vooduu People: ex-Noisette Pharoah Russell (drums) and Basile Petite (bass) plus Sheena Ross (backing vocals) and Jackson Baird (keyboards).

She and her band are inspired by a range of legends, from Jimi Hendrix to Amy Winehouse via The Isley Brothers, Led Zeppelin, Bowie, Prince, Alice In Chains, Skunk Anansie and Erykah Badu.
