OZRIC TENTACLES at Times Square
Type: Music & Concerts
Ozric Tentacles are, simply put, legends of the U.K. underground. One of the most influential bands to emerge from the U.K.'s festival scene, the band (also known simply as the Ozrics) layers ambient and ethereal soundscapes with freeform dub trips, incredible rave grooves, and psychedelic progressive rock in an open exploration of music and the soul. In their over 25-year career, the Ozrics have experienced the vicissitudes of the rock 'n' roll life. The band has flourished through a number of lineup changes, spawned several side projects (including Eat Static and Nodens Ictus), created their own record label (Dovetail & Stretchy), put out over 25 albums, scored a hit record, and sold over a million albums worldwide. And yet, the basic motivation behind the band's existence has never wavered.
