More information: One of the most influential bands to emerge from the UKís festival scene, the Ozrics layer ambient and ethereal landscapes with freeform dub trips, incredible rave grooves and psychedelic progressive rock. Itís an open exploration of music and the soul. For over 25 years, the Ozrics have experienced the vicissitudes of the rock and roll life. The band has flourished through a number of line-up changes, spawned several side projects, created their own record label, put out close to 25 albums, scored a hit record and sold over a million albums worldwide. And yet, the basic motivation behind the bandís existence has never wavered. Their signature blend of hippy aesthetics and raver electronics with spiraling guitars, textured waves of keyboard and midi samplers, and supergroovy bass and drum rhythms continues to delight fans across the world to this day. Erpland was the bandís eighth release and was originally released in 1990 and is considered by many fans as one of their finest works. The album has been remastered for this 2 disc set.

Disc 2 is a DVD featuring the first authorised released of the much sought after Brixton Fridge gig which has been lost for 20 years and only previously available on bootlegged VHS tapes. The gig was recorded in May 1991 and features the classic line-up of Ed, Joie, Jon, Roly, Merv and Paul Hankin.
