Biography

Alabama 3 are a band originating from Brixton, England, their music incorporates elements of , , and .

Named for the Alabama 2, a legal case in the American deep South during the 1930s, in which two black men were hanged for allegedly raping a white woman. The name is also a nod to other victims of injustice like the Birmingham 6 and Guildford 4. In the United States, they are known as A3, after they were sued by the legendary country outfit Alabama.

They are perhaps best known in the United States for the remix of their song Woke Up This Morning, which appears as the theme song for the HBO hit series The Sopranos.

They have released six albums so far, with numerous bootlegs more than doubling their catalog. Alabama 3 rarely tour outside of their home country.

Recently, female singer Devlin Love has joined the group.

Additional material:
Alabama 3 are an English band mixing rock, dance, blues, country, gospel, and spoken word styles, founded in Brixton, London in 1995. In the United States, the band are known as A3, allegedly to avoid any possible legal conflict with the country music band Alabama.[1] The group achieved international fame when the producers of hit TV series The Sopranos chose the track “Woke Up This Morning” for the show’s opening credits.[1]
The band are particularly notable for their fusion of styles, lyrics full of ironic intent, their deliberately humorous personas and their outrageous live performances.

    It seems that most think this amazing band is validated by having had their song chosen for the Sopranos theme? Try listening to all their music and you'll see they had a lot more than that one song going for them. And David Chase selected the tune, not James G. I would call them Alternative Country Rock not anything with the word acid in it by the way.

    Found these guys while searching for a song from the Bioshock Infinite soundtrack. Very lucky I gave them a listen, their sound is sick! Acid house country? Awesome.

    It appears that people recognize the intro to the sopranos, which is great, people will start listening to Alabama 3 right? No they just leave a comment stating "Soprano" and move on. This saddens me as these people will never experience the unique musical style Alabama 3 deliver.
