More Info:

One of the most influential bands to emerge from the UK's festival scene, the Ozrics layer ambient & ethereal landscapes with freeform dub trips, incredible rave grooves & psychedelic progressive rock. It's an open exploration of music & the soul. 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 it's way around country lanes looking for a place to set up & party, away from the psychoses of corporate life. 'The Hidden Step' is the ninth studio album by Ozric Tentacles and was released in 2000. It was their last to include bassist Zia Ahmad Geelani (except for the track 'Oakum' on 'Spirals In Hyperspace') & drummer "Rad" (Conrad Prince). It was also the first Ozric Tentacles album that does not feature a cover by the artist Blim; the cover art, by guitarist Edward Wynne, features his cat Pixel. Incorporating new sounds, the band entered the new millennium with a new & style. 'The Hidden Step' has been remastered by Ed Wynne & is available on CD digipack with four page booklet via Kscope
