The amazing thing about Ozric Tentacles is that they bridge the gap, a long one, between 60's psychadelia and the psychadelic techno/rave scene, yes thats right, eastern themes, unusual time signatures, guitars, flutes, esoteric song titles (eg: Chewier, Clockdrops, Spirals in Hyperspace) PLUS the thumping baselines loved by people who are too young to know who the Move, Vanilla Fudge or the Blue Magoos are.......
I completely love it when bands come along that bridge these gaps: think Prodigy (Firestarter) bridging UK Punk and Techno, DJ Dangermouse's illegal grey album (he mixed Jay-Z's Black Album with The Beatles White Album, with all beats taken taken from the Beatles), the great Mash-Up of Jay-z and Voodoo Chile by Hendrix.
Their last album was The Floor's To Far Away (2006). Take a risk, try something new !
