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. The band's first release after Merv Pepler & Joie Hinton left to form Eat Static, 'Become The Other' still possesses the cool, psychedelic spare rock of it's predecessors. With hints of techno, psybient & world music, the album kicks off with some fine guitar & bass on 'Cat DNA', followed by the atmospherics of 'Ahu Belahu' & 'Ghedengi'. 'Wob Glass' is all synthy techno whilst 'Neurochasm' is a cool trippy rock track & so very Ozrics. The title track visits reggae with lengthy finishers 'Vibuthi' & 'Plurnstyle' both smorgasbords of classic Ozrics sounds. And that's 'Become The Other' in a nutshell: everything you'd expect of an Ozrics album, but not sounding exactly like any other Ozrics album. This has been newly remastered by Ed Wynne. 'Become The Other', which has been out of print for over 20 years, is now available again on Kscope and presented in a digipack with a four page booklet.
