“Much more than just a homage to those hippy bands of the 70’s; they are actually doing FOR REAL what those bands gave the impression of being but never really were." NME One of the most influential bands to emerge from the UK’s festival scene, the Ozrics layer ambient & ethereal landscapes with freeform dub trips, incredible rave grooves & psychedelic progressive rock. It’s an open exploration of music & the soul. For over 30 years, the Ozrics have experienced the vicissitudes of the rock & roll life. The band has flourished through a number of line-up changes, spawned several side projects, created their own record label, scored a hit record & sold over a million albums worldwide. And yet, the basic motivation behind the band’s existence has never wavered. Their signature blend of hippy aesthetics & raver electronics with spiralling guitars, textured waves of keyboard & midi samplers & super-groovy bass & drum rhythms continue to delight fans across the world to this day. Originally planned as a single, the psychedelic Techno track "Pyramidion" was recorded instead as the sister release to the studio album ‘The Hidden Step’ & was such a success that it remained in the band's live set. The song was released as an EP with four live tracks recorded impromptu with high-quality equipment at Sheffield's The Boardwalk, which was something fans had been requesting for almost a decade, the last live release being the Ozrics' 1992 ‘Live Underslunky’.
