The immense French prog-rock ensemble MAGMA has been led for 40 years by drummer and mystic Christian Vander on a unique quest to combine free jazz, motorik beats, choral music and modern classical into an unclassifiable whole.
The legendary French psych-rock and twisted disco pioneer J.P. MASSIERA - whose recordings from the 1960s and 1970s now change hands for hundreds of pounds – makes a one-off UK appearance in collaboration with London’s extraordinary ritualistic collective CHROME HOOF – the nearest thing to these prog masters that present-day music scene has to offer.
Plus music from DJ ANDY VOTEL before the show and during the interval.
