The Groove Nashville

Originally released in 2002, as a live DVD At The Pongmasters Ball was the first true live album to be released by Ozric Tentacles since the release in 1992 of Live Underslunky; now Madfish are set to re-release the album with updated artwork this October. Recorded at the final gig of the bands 2002 sell out UK tour, this CD & DVD NTSC 0 package, captures the very essence of the Ozrics live experience with a frenzied capacity crowd at London's Shepherds Bush Empire. The album includes classics from Ozric Tentacles' vast back catalogue as well as previously unreleased material and the odd "space-jam" where the band free themselves from the shackles of rehearsed material and let the music wander into unknown territory. Ozric Tentacles first came together at the Stonehenge Free Festival in 1983, and built an audience through selling privately produced cassettes of their music. Their talent for hypnotic, mantra-like grooves found kindred spirits in the British rave scene of the late 1980s, uniting the seemingly disparate 'New Age' Hippie and Rave audiences. Despite the lack of a hit single, media notoriety or the usual music business hype, much less major-label backing, their 1993 album Jurassic Shift was a UK top twenty album, and their hardcore audience is both dedicated and loyal to the band's unique sound. At the core of the band's music is an exploration of electronic musical textures and compulsive, danceable grooves interlaced with strong melodies and multi-ethnic musical references.
