Ozric Tentacles - Bits Between The Bits
THE OZRIC TENTACLES SIXTH ALBUM REMASTERED AND ON VINYL FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME
1989’s The Bits Between the Bits was the final Ozrics cassette release and was essentially a collection of various previously unreleased recordings from ‘85 – ‘89, released whilst the band readied their Pungent Effulgent album. That recording made in Wales at Dave Anderson’s Demi Monde Studios, conceived and recorded almost entirely on magic mushrooms, was to commence a whole new era for the band. The Bits Between the Bits did include a very early sinuous recording entitled ‘Health Music’ written by Gavin Griffths, providing a contrast that showed how far the band’s instrumental music had developed. The churning middle-eastern ‘Secret Names’ with Jumping John on flute pointed the way forwards whilst the manic ‘Wreltch’ even appeared as a bonus track on the Dovetail CD version of Pungent Effulgent.
The Bits Between The Bits has been re-mastered for this 2015 vinyl release and is presented here as a double 180gms heavyweight vinyl LP
