1989’s The Bits Between the Bits was the final Ozrics cassette release and was essentially a collection of various previously unreleased recordings from ‘85 – ‘89, released whilst the band readied their Pungent Effulgent album. That recording made in Wales at Dave Anderson’s Demi Monde Studios, conceived & recorded almost entirely on magic mushrooms, was to commence a whole new era for the band.
A raggle-taggle, unpretentious assortment of punk-infused, dreadlocked hippies, since 1983 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 & electronic, jazzy experimentation.
This was the soundtrack to the herbfragranced, alternative lifestyle that wound its way around country lanes looking for a place to set up and party, away from the psychoses of corporate life.
Without any desire or need for a record label, it was the Ozric Tentacles' cassette releases that funded and supported their journey through the ‘80s. These simple artefacts with photocopied inserts & rainbow spray-painted labels were sold in vast quantities at festivals, on the merchandise table at Club Dog & through a mail order outlet.
