Ozric Tentacles: Erpsongs
Title: Erpsongs
Label: Kscope Import

CD digipak reissue. A raggle-taggle, unpretentious assortment of punk-infused, dreadlocked hippies, the Ozric Tentacles wove psychedelic audio-tapestries that captured the almost dangerous musical diversity of the free festival scene, blending acid rock with dub, reggae, ethnic world music and electronic, jazzy experimentation. This was the soundtrack to the herb-fragranced, alternative lifestyle that wound it's way around country lanes looking for a place to set up and party, away from the psychoses of corporate life. Erpsongs was the band's debut album in 1985 and was only released through cassette originally. It contained studio recordings made in 1984 and '85, and didn't come with a printed track listing, and whilst live favorites such as the high energy 'Velmwend' and more relaxed 'Dots Thots' were easily identifiable the contents remained a mystery for many years until the Vitamin Enhanced CDs clarified the running order. Erpsongs remains a firm favorite amongst fans, establishing the band's distinctive '70s influenced swirling space rock jams while maintaining their very original own sound.
