Curated by musical sage and crate-digger extraordinaire Andy Votel, this show brings together intense cosmic rock and psychedelic disco.

French prog-rock Magma are unique – a truly visionary ensemble led by drummer and mystic Christian Vander, and are celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2009. Combining jazz, opera, minimalism and 20th Century classical, their work revolves around the imaginary planet Kobaïa, whose language many of their songs are performed in.

Magma are joined by another French pioneer, the legendary JP Massiera, whose freaked-out disco recordings from the 1970s now change hands for hundred of pounds. Completing the bill are the extraordinary ritualistic collective Chrome Hoof – the nearest thing to these prog masters that present-day London has to offer.

A truly mind-expanding concert experience.
