Description

MADFISH PRESENT OZRIC TENTACLES' 2011 ALBUM PAPER MONKEYS ON CD DIGIPACK 'Paper Monkeys' is the 2011 studio album from UK underground legends, Ozric Tentacles. It is the band's follow-up to 2009's 'The Yum Yum Tree'. That album proved that despite being over 25 years into their career the band were still a force to be reckoned with Classic Rock Prog stating, 'There are enough moments of brilliance here to make this the best thing the band have committed to tape since 'Jurassic Shift' in 1993.' Ozric Tentacles first came together at the Stonehenge Free Festival in 1983, and built an audience through selling privately produced cassettes of their music. Their talent for hypnotic, mantra-like grooves found kindred spirits in the British rave scene of the late 1980s, uniting the seemingly disparate 'New Age' Hippie and Rave audiences. Despite the lack of a hit single, media notoriety or the usual music business hype, much less major-label backing, their 1993 album 'Jurassic Shift' was a UK top twenty album, and their hardcore audience is both dedicated and loyal to the band's unique sound. At the core of the band's music is an exploration of electronic musical textures and compulsive, danceable grooves interlaced with strong melodies and multi-ethnic musical references. Ozric Tentacles are currently promoting and touring their 2015 studio album 'Technicians Of The Sacred' with festival appearances lined up for summer 2016. An exploration of music and the soul. This 2016 CD version will be presented as a digipack with a 12 page colour booklet.
