When Kscope announced ‘A Night At The Union Chapel’ we knew it was going to be something truly special. Over the past few years this record label have been putting out some of the finest progressive music around, from Steven Wilson’s solo work to Ulver. Tonight’s one-off showcase features some of their finest talent performing stripped-down sets in an intimate setting. Who else could we send  to review it than Amit Sharma?
