Ozric Tentacles

Ozric Tentacles are a unique phenomenon. Long before they released a record or CD, they had become a group whose music was revered throughout the mid 80's UK underground and alternative scenes.

Taking their name from an imaginary breakfast cereal, thought up while the group was "Expanding their consciousness," they swiftly took their place as a staple festival band and are often cited as one of the most innovative bands of their generation.
