Steve presents Out Of Europe

A musical mystery tour across the continent, covering many genres, mostly outside the commercial realm.

Steve’s bio:

I grew up in a time when record companies, the odd article in the music press, John Peel, the Virgin Records import section and its incipient label opened a fascinating door as to what our neighbours across the sea were up to musically. Further enquiries, information from fellow travellers and a particular enthusiasm for the French band Magma opened that door further. The journey expanded into what influenced such artists, taking in Jazz, a little classical and on to the more “out there” experimentalism best defined by the ‘Rock In Opposition’ banner and some record distributors who cared deeply for this music and its creators. Out Of Europe takes an affectionate look at the music that has comeā€¦Out Of Europe.
