The unlikely story of a 6 time World Snooker Champion turned techno DJ and his relationship with a psychedelic True Believer and their adventures as emerging underground music legends, The Utopia Strong.
Steve Davis is a six time World Snooker Champion, BBC snooker 'pundit' and well-known enthusiast for out-there music. Kavus Torabi is a member of Gong, Cardiacs and many other underground psychedelic bands. They met many years ago and forged a friendship through a shared love of cult experimental music. They became DJs - both on the live circuit and on their monthly 'Fire Shuffle' show on NTS - and they are now The Utopia Strong, a band with a celebrated album release and many gigs behind them. This event tells the story of two outsiders and obsessives whose collision prompted an evangelistic alliance on the furthest frontiers of underground music.
