SNOOKER star turned DJ Steve Davis is heading the Capital and there won't be a red ball, pocket, or cue in sight.

On Saturday 25 November, at the Wee Red Bar in Edinburgh College of Art, the 60-year-old will team up with experimental/psychedelic musician Kavus Torabi for a DJ set that the pair admit is 'hard to narrow down'.

Effectively, however, the live set is a mix of 'across the board weird and left-field prog bangers with quality electronic and top-end techno slung into the mix.'

Davis, the most successful professional Snooker Player of the 1980s, won 28 major ranking events including six World Championships.

In recent years he has indulged in his musical hobby, namely collecting left field music from around the globe and presenting a weekly Radio show on Phoenix FM, with Torabi.

His musical tastes range from quality 70's Prog, Canterbury and Zeuhl through to modern day Rock in Opposition and Avant-Progressive and now further into left-field electronica and IDM.

Torabi, who runs the boutique record label Believers Roast, has collaborated with a wide range of artists. He co-presents The Interesting Alternative Show with Davis, a show championing new, experimental, avant-garde, far out, underground, electronic, pop, folk, psych, rock and classical music.
