System 7 feat. Guitar Legend Steve Hillage & ROVO To Play UK

Recommended Posts

System 7 featuring guitar legend Steve Hillage and Japanese progressive rock/jam band ROVO will be performing in the UK March 8 - 10, 2014. A perfect fusion of virtuoso rock and modern electronica!
Rovo and System 7 featuring Steve Hillage – Phoenix Rising Live!
Rovo are a completely original progressive spacerock jam band from Japan, featuring two drummers like the Grateful Dead. Ambient techno original Orb collaborators System 7 delve into their live psychedelic rock past and profound influences like Jimi Hendrix. Together Rovo and System 7 produce an exciting intense and futuristic sound that morphs effortlessly between tech-house beats and totally live playing, also touching post-rock textures of groups like Sigur Ros. With extended live solos from Rovo’s Yuji Katsui and Seiichi Yamamoto and of course from Steve Hillage, the Phoenix Rising live set builds to a stunning climax with the track “Cisco” that reveals a strong influence of seminal German bands like Can. One of the highlights is a brilliant live version of the Mahavishnu Orchestra’s “Meeting of the Spirits”, featuring the blend of Steve Hillage’s guitar and Yuji Katsui’s electric violin. The main set is preceded by a short Rovo solo set and a short System 7 set, making for a full evening of amazing modern music.
