Ozric Tentacles Tantric Obstacles Double vinyl Kscope Ed Wynne
Ed Wynne remaster of Tantric Obstacles.
Tantric Obstacles (1985) was the second of Ozric Tentacles' first six independent releases on cassette.
Double vinyl version.
Tantric Obstacles released in 1985 and was released on cassette only following in the footsteps of their debut Erpsongs. The album contains some of the Ozric’s tacks that are still firm live favourites with fans – the energetic guitar spacerocker ‘Sniffing Dog’ and the more complex ‘Og-Ha-Be’ which kicks off the album with the trademark Ozrics sound - a funky riff that gradually builds and recedes and builds again until it eventually explodes upon a scintillating pinnacle of space guitar. ‘Music to Gargle At’ is almost an early version of the ‘91 Strangetitude single ‘Sploosh’; with its water samples, electronic beats and plug hole noises. ‘Trees of Eternity’ is clearly influenced by Steve Hillage, whilst ‘Oddhamshaw Style’ and ‘Sorry Style’ date the tape with the kind of classic crusty dub that could be heard drifting across the main drag of any festival site from a ramshackle sound system in the early part of the ‘80s. Tantric Obstacles is a snapshot of the band at the height of the free festival era
