London's Scariest Band: Alabama 3

Will Self, Observer, The, November 2002

IF YOU LIKE seriously deranged, outrageously danceable and indisputably subversive music, then clear your diary for December 1st when the Alabama 3 play the Astoria. And anyone tempted to shoot up the venue on that night – beware, this band are an unholy terror, who while they eschew violence in all its forms, are all too likely to bring malefactors to a righteous standstill with their unholy musical miscegenation.
