The Ozrics are a national treasure, and long may they remain

"Well, I picked up on the Ozrics 20 years too late......
They gigged locally in June '05 so I went to see them and, well, I still haven't really come back. Bought 'The Eternal Wheel'(Best of...) and as a result have now acquired over half their back-catalogue. Snapper do several albums as 'two-fer-the-price-of-one' God bless 'em, and Curious Corn is no exception, being combined with Swirly Termination, whose Steep and Space Out are beyond stunning.
Curious Corn is very much in their current synth-led psychedelic/trance rock style of things, with Afroclonk perhaps being a nod toward their earlier albums, though here the emphasis is on African polyrhythms rather than the Middle Eastern/Indian feel that permeates the earlier albums. Ed's blistering guitar solos are still there though for we six-string freaks! For the more analogue among you, Jumping John still blows through his 'sticks with holes in them' as good as ever. The title track is outstanding, the bpm being possibly hazardous to those with a heart condition! (perhaps the CD should come with a health warning?!!!) Oddentity, which follows is a stunner, also featuring on Live At The Pong-Master's Ball CD & DVD as the opening number. Oh, s-d it, just go out and buy it and keep the best band on the planet (and several other planets) touring and making stunning music for us for another 20 years!
Ozrics Rule, OK!
I dunno how they does it, they jus' does it.

"Curious Corn was released under the Ozric Tentacles moniker way back in 1997. The lineup consisted of Ed Wynne on guitar and synth, Seaweed on synth, John Egan on flute, Zia on bass, and Rad on drums. This album contains everything the Ozrics are known for, such as glissando guitar galore (Oolite Groove), a meandering synth-driven track (Spyroid, NOT Meander), a percussion-laden, world music-flavored xylophone-driven tune that segues into a timbale sample (Afroclonk), and a groove-driven jam (Oddentity) along with three other tracks. Given the variety of musical styles on this CD, it's hard to get bored with it even after repeated listens. Good stuff, if you can get your hands on it."
Great band, great CD

"'Curious Corn' was the 1st album I heard by the Ozrics, and their heady and organic fusion of jazz as well as space rock, dub reggae, electronica, glissando guitar and exotic beats and percussion was definitely my cup of (mushroom) tea, being that Im also a big fan of bands such as Hawkwind, Gong, Shpongle, Farflung. I subsequently acquired 9 more of their CDs, including the excellent 'Live at the Pongmaster's Ball' DVD '. I would also recommend to fellow Ozrics fans an obscure band I recently found on Amazon: 'CoelacanthDance': 'Sonic Excursions and Audio Spasms', who I'd wager have been influenced by the Ozrics."
