Ozric Tentacles Sliding Gliding Worlds on 180g 2LP  

To coincide with the band’s recently released new studio album Technicians Of The Sacred, Madfish Records is giving the six albums from the Ozric Tentacles' 2014 Vitamin Enhanced CD box set their first vinyl release continuing with their fifth album Sliding Gliding Worlds from 1988. 

On Sliding Gliding Worlds, the Ozric's moved away from their brand of Gong and Steve Hillage influenced space rock towards a complex, melodic blend of experimental space jazz and 'world music'. Standout tracks include the powerful "Kick Muck" (later re-recorded for Pungent Effulgent), the afro-beat flavored "White Rhino Tea" (a new version appeared on Strangeitude in 1991), and "Guzzard" (which recalls the band's earlier work with its dense mix of stabbing guitar solos and synth swirls). 

But it is Ed Wynne’s increased interest in Far Eastern, Arabian and African music that is reflected in the melodic ethnic sounds starting to permeate the Ozric's music as tracks like "Mae Hong Song" reveal. The earlier scuzzy dub reggae influences begin to disappear although "The Dusty Pouch" retains some of that feel with a more polished production perhaps indicating the band’s growing confidence in the recording environment.

A sophisticated album that predicted some of the directions the Ozric Tentacles would take in the 1990s, Sliding Gliding Worlds has been remastered and is pressed on double 180g vinyl.
