Ozric Tentacles, Fibbers, York, May 12
11:05am Friday 4th May 2012 in Music news and reviews
SINCE emerging from the British festival scene, Somerset’s Ozric Tentacles have released close to 25 albums.
The latest studio set, Paper Monkeys, was issued on their own Dovetail & Stretchy label on April 9 and is being promoted on a nine-date tour that includes The Wardobe in Leeds on Thursday and Fibbers in York next Saturday.
Ozric Tentacles first met around a Stonehenge campfire in 1983, conjuring their name from hypothetical cereal brands and soon establishing themselves as a proto-hippy instrumental band.
“Last spotted at Fibbers in 2000, the Ozrics’ magic has continued ever since their first release, 1989’s Pungent Effulgent, which Fibbers long-timers will remember on permanent juke box rotation,” says promoter Tim Hornsby. Doors open at 7.30pm; Champignon support.
