Remastered double LP edition of the Ozrics classic third album from 1986 pressed on heavyweight (180g) vinyl.
 
Erp Riff and Tentacular Explosion are powerhouses of improvisational energy. A nod to Gong and Steve Hillage is found on Aumriff ('Om Riff'), which is as close as the Ozrics would ever come to a cover version. Unsurprisingly, the 'pot head pixie' tune effortlessly dovetails with the Ozric's own material.
 
Live Ethereal Cereal is an excellent example of the Ozric's on blistering mid-1980s form.
