Wow thanks for all the links Lunitari, ill have to check them out. Ozric goes way back, i first heard of them only about 2-3 years ago but they blow my mind! Ozric Tentacles are one with the vibe of the plant thats for sure, its like you dont even hear all of the music unless you are in the right state of mind. For instance, I listened to Erpland almost everyday for months, almost a year, I thought i knew every sound in that cd like the back of my hand. Then I listened to it in an altered state and it was like i had never even heard it before. I saw them in Boulder CO 2 years ago I think, it was in a small venue, but it was awesome, Ed’s wife (playing bass) said she felt like she just jamming in the living room with her mates. That was the best show ive seen so far.
*edit: got a chance to check out some of those links, that sploosh remix is pretty cool. and the similarities with the yb song and thorbbe are pretty cool too. The Ozrics have made so much music its almost overwhelming. I have 9 cds so far, which would be a lot with any other band but with Ozric Tentacles i feel like im just scratching the surface.
My pleasure mate
I have just counted my Ozric collection. I have 28 CDs ( I own 2 or 3 different editions of some albums, + Eternal Wheel - The Best Of CD, and the Nodens Ictus CD ), 1 DVD, 1 cassette, 3 t shirts, and some other cool stuff. . . Well, at least that was all that I found
As I said, Ozric is my favorite band, so that’s why I have all that stuff
I saw them live 4 times. 1 in Amsterdam and 3 here in Israel. One of my Erpland copies and my Spirals In Hyperspace copy are signed by Ed
About the new album - I know just what you know at the moment
Anyway, here are 3 old Ozric tracks that always move me ! ! !
