Alabama 3 The Art Of Theft Tour 2012.

Alabama 3 make Sweet Pretty Country Acid House Music. They're not from Alabama, and there's more than three of them. They're from Brixton, London. You would have heard them if you ever watched the Sopranos's - they did the theme tune.

to quote their website...

"Alabama 3 is a pop band, a punk rock, blues and country techno situationist crypto-Marxist-Leninist electro band. We never went on X Factor or Pop Idol or Stooge Quest. We did it the old fashioned way; Back in 1996, we threw a big old party, invited all our friends. We took a fistfull of blotters and half a dozen disco biscuits and then made it up as we went along."

They've tried to stop us. Many, many times. They say we were degenerates, corrupters of morals, they say we we were too political, too contrived, too ugly. We've been in and we've been out. In and out of the charts, in and out of fashion, in and out of rehab. We've been skint and we've been minted... and you know what? It makes no difference to us. Because we're never gonna stop. We're gonna just keep on putting out records and putting on shows."
