‘Selling The Big Issue taught me how to front a rock band’

 The Big Issue UK 08 July 2019

Vendors gain many skills selling street papers that can often help them move on to other jobs. But not many can say it helped them to front a rock band. Ex-Big Issue vendor Paul-Ronney Angel now tours Europe with his 'wedding band from hell' The Urban Voodoo Machine - but he has kept his street paper ID badge as a reminder. The Big Issue caught up with the swaggering lead singer to chat about living the rock’n’roll dream and his memories of selling the magazine in 90s London. (562 Words) - By Steven MacKenzie
