More information: KNIFEWORLD is the new brainchild of Kavus Torabi, known from The Cardiacs, The Monsoon Bassoon, Chrome Hoof, Guapo and Gong. A unique British rock band, an octet playing unusual, complex and exhilarating psychedelic pop.

Knifeworld started life in 2009 following the release of the debut album Buried Alone: Tales Of Crushing Defeat. The Unravelling is the first recording of the full eight-piece line up. Traditional rock instruments are augmented with male/ female vocal harmonies, bassoon, saxophones, keys and strings. Psychedelic, polyrhythmic arrangements married to insistent pop-hooks that are both ambitious and unpredictable. A musically kaleidoscopic, eight-song cycle shot through with melancholy, regret and loss. Like an explosion in an acid factory, The Unravelling is singular, otherworldly and audacious. Detectable influences may include XTC, Henry Cow, Syd Barrett, Led Zeppelin, Steve Reich, Todd Rundgren, Black Sabbath, Magma, Voivod and Sonic Youth.
