Steve Davis was the most successful professional Snooker Player of the 1980’s, winning a total of 28 major ranking events including 6 World Championships. In recent years his involvement in snooker has been limited mainly to TV punditry, which has given him far more time to indulge in his musical hobby, namely collecting left field music from around the globe and presenting a weekly Radio show on PhoenixFM and monthly residency on NTS Radio with Kavus Torabi. His favourite band is Magma and it was well documented that at the end of the 80’s he brought them to London for a series of shows. His musical tastes range from quality 70’s Prog, Canterbury and Zeuhl through to modern day Rock in Opposition and Avant-Progressive and now further into left-field electronica and IDM.
Kavus Torabi is an experimental/ psychedelic musician with a long history in the field. He fronts his own band, Knifeworld and plays in Gong, Guapo and was previously a member of the clad Cardiacs.
He runs the boutique record label, Believers Roast, has collaborated with a wide range of left-field artists and co-presents The Interesting Alternative Show and Fire Shuffle shows with Steve Davis, shows championing new, experimental, avant-garde, far out, underground, electronic, pop, folk, psych, rock and classical music.
An explanation of their live DJ set is hard to narrow down but it is effectively across the board weird and left field Prog Bangers with Quality Electronic and top end Techno slung into the mix!
