TORPEDO - 27.11.2023
Ozric Tentacles is a British psychedelic and progressive rock band formed in 1983. It was founded by guitarist Ed Wynne, who has remained the core member of the band throughout its existence. Wynne began composing and recording music at home, with the help of family and friends, before officially forming Ozric Tentacles. The original line-up also included his brother Roly Wynne on bass, Joie Hinton on keyboards, and Nick Van Gelder on drums.

Ozric Tentacles released their debut album, "Erpland", in 1990, to rave reviews from critics and progressive music fans alike. The album established the band's distinctive sound, characterized by atmospheric electric guitars, psychedelic synthesizers and hypnotic tribal rhythms. Ozric Tentacles' compositions are often instrumental and extend over long durations, creating a soaring, immersive ambience.

Over the years, the band has undergone several line-up changes, with Ed Wynne remaining the only constant member. Ozric Tentacles has released numerous critically acclaimed albums throughout its career, including "Jurassic Shift" (1993), "Waterfall Cities" (1999) and "Paper Monkeys" (2011). The band is also renowned for its energetic, psychedelic live performances, where tracks are often rearranged and expanded beyond their studio versions.
