The Utopia Strong @ The Crescent Community Venue
Dec 18 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm
The Utopia Strong @ The Crescent Community Venue | England | United Kingdom

Ouroboros presents: The Utopia Strong

STEVE DAVIS (yes the snooker player) and KAVUS TORABI (Gong/Knifeworld) return to The Crescent, this time with MICHAEL YORK, and a bucket load of modular synths as THE UTOPIA STRONG. Expect psychedelic, ambient techno tinged electronica. Album forthcoming on legendary psych label Rocket Recordings.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gG02P9j406I

The Utopia Strong are a semi-modular trio, delivering medical grade music to the visionary music head.

The band were born on the evening of 2nd January 2018 after what can only be described as an experimental and revelatory improvised session together. Kavus Torabi, Michael York and Steve Davis have fused Modular Synthesisers with conventional and traditional instruments to create a weird and joyous celebration of all that is good about left field psychedelic music.

Kavus Torabi is an experimental/psychedelic musician with a long history in the field. He has his own band, Knifeworld and is frontman in the current line up of Gong. He has been a member
in various other bands including Guapo and most notably a guitarist in the final line up of Cardiacs.

He runs the boutique record label, Believers Roast, has collaborated with a wide range of left-field artists and co-presents a show on NTS Radio with Steve Davis, a show championing new, experimental, avant-garde, far out, underground, electronic, pop, folk, psych, rock and classical music.

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 to TV punditry, which has given him more time to indulge in music related activities, namely collecting left field music from around the globe, presenting a monthly radio show on NTS Radio with Kavus Torabi and now joining forces with Kavus and Michael York to form The Utopia Strong, further cementing
his growing interest in playing the Modular Synth.

Michael York is a multi instrumentalist and luthier, working mainly with modular/analogue synths and woodwinds (primarily focusing on bagpipes, reeds and flutes of Europe and the Near East).

His piping has seen him work not only in the realm of folk, with the likes of Shirley Collins and the 7 piece bagpipe choir Zephyrus, but also with the esoteric avant garde ensembles Coil, Cyclobe, Current 93, Guapo and The Stargazers Assistant.

In 2014 as an outlet for his voyages in alternate realities through the medium of analogue electronics he formed the modular synth duo Teleplasmiste (with Mark Pilkington) and the ambient psychedelia group The Other Without (with Neil Mortimer).

“Gypsy Bill has a nice 1933 L00 Gibson and a 1929 National Triolian and when he gets going he rips up the blues like a man possessed with the spirt.

He got the name Gypsy because of his wandering, rambling ways. He worked the fairgrounds when he was 16 and then took his guitar on the road, living the busking life. First he played the pop and rock scene and late in life, by age 30, he completely devoted himself to country blues after having fallen in love with the music of Fred McDowell and Son House. Nowadays, he is backed by his wife Adele on standup bass.”

“Gypsy Bill has a nice 1933 L00 Gibson and a 1929 National Triolian and when he gets going he rips up the blues like a man possessed with the spirt.

He got the name Gypsy because of his wandering, rambling ways. He worked the fairgrounds when he was 16 and then took his guitar on the road, living the busking life. First he played the pop and rock scene and late in life, by age 30, he completely devoted himself to country blues after having fallen in love with the music of Fred McDowell and Son House. Nowadays, he is backed by his wife Adele on standup bass.”

We are multi-instrumentalists, playing electric and acoustic guitars, keyboard and saxophones, over self-recorded backing tracks of bass & drums, giving a full band sound. We specialise in strong vocal harmonies.

We use a Bose PA system that gives a clear ‘room-filling’ sound without being loud or harsh – no room too large or too small and have professional standard lights and ‘PAT’ tested equipment and public liability insurance .

And most importantly – everything we do is geared to making sure the audience have a great time.

Our repertoire:
500 Miles
70s Medley – (Let’s Stick Together/Get It On)
A little respect
Alright Now
American Pie
Another One Bites The Dust

Live every Sunday, we host Gypsy Bill – https://www.facebook.com/gypsybillmusic

“Gypsy Bill has a nice 1933 L00 Gibson and a 1929 National Triolian and when he gets going he rips up the blues like a man possessed with the spirt.

He got the name Gypsy because of his wandering, rambling ways. He worked the fairgrounds when he was 16 and then took his guitar on the road, living the busking life. First he played the pop and rock scene and late in life, by age 30, he completely devoted himself to country blues after having fallen in love with the music of Fred McDowell and Son House. Nowadays, he is backed by his wife Adele on standup bass.”
