Episode details

In this podcast, our guests, Steve and Kavus, discuss their unique journey from the world of snooker to music and modular synths. They met through a shared love of music and eventually formed a psychedelic power trio. Steve shares how he transitioned from snooker to music, while Kavus discusses his musical background and experiences.

They talk about their albums, DJing, and their love for modular synths. The conversation touches on their favourite artists, albums, and snooker players for a desert island scenario, with some humorous moments. The event is hosted Lee Brackstone at Verdant Brewing Taroom for the White Rabbit Summer Party 2023

No-one, least of all Steve Davis and Kavus Torabi themselves, expected the six-time former World Snooker champion and a British-Iranian underground rock musician to become one of the most trusted brands in British alternative music. In their weekly radio shows and as two-thirds of The Utopia Strong, they set out to do exactly that.

Part sonic memoir, part Socratic dialogue, part gonzo mission to the heart of what makes music truly psychedelic, Medical Grade Music takes us from the snooker halls of Plumstead to the wildest shores of Plymouth's '90s thrash scene in the first work of joint autobiography to trace the evolution of a life-changing friendship through the discographies of Gentle Giant, Voivod and a host of deviant psychedelic avatars.
