Psychedelic space rock band the Ozric Tentacles (aka The Ozrics) come to the Arches.

9.05pm-11pm Ozric Tentacles

Now with 28 albums under their belt – the latest being last year’s Paper Monkeys – the Ozrics have achieved legendary status amongst a loyal fanbase of psychedelia fans since forming at the Stonehenge Free Festival in 1983. With numerous line-up changes over their impressive near-30 years making music (with Ed Wynne being a constant), the band’s reputation for enigmatic live shows still precedes them – as does their idiosyncractic humour, witnessed in their artwork and album titles.

Whilst influences such as Steve Hillage and Gong are immediately apparent, the Ozrics sound has become similarly unmistakeable, with psychedelic basslines, keyboards and guitar work combining with Eastern, world, jazz, ambient and reggae influences to create this strange, beguiling music.
