About

Autumn 2024 sees two giants of underground psych-dance culture
coming together for the first time on an extensive tour of the UK.

The Orb – mixing ambient soundscapes and pulsing rhythms and
Ozric Tentacles – blending instrumental psychedelic rock with ethnic
beats and spacey soundscapes coming together for an evening of
audio-visual sensory overload!

THE ORB

Thirty-five years since Alex Paterson lit the multi-coloured touchpaper on
The Orb’s interstellar space odyssey, he continues to swerve, becoming
his own tribute act by never standing still and preparing a cluster of fresh
new projects.
2023 saw the release of Prism, the eighteenth Orb studio album
and being hailed as their most towering set for years, followed by
extensive tours of the UK, Europe and the USA. Towards the end of
2023, The Orb reunited with Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour to follow
2010’s Metallic Spheres with Metallic Spheres In Colour (sleeve again by
Ghahary). What’s more, 2024 will be graced by an up-to-date Best of
The Orb set. 
With Alex Paterson always setting the controls for the perfect ambient
flight, dance groove or exploring previously unknown vistas, The Orb
initially manifested as visionary mischief-makers in 1988’s acid house
revolution, taking “ambient house” to number one in the album charts
accompanied by his parallel devotion to the art of DJing and very British
sense of humour. Always working with telepathic sonic lieutenants,
Alex’s latest forays have been achieved with the brilliant Michael
Rendall. 
OZRIC TENTACLES

Ozric Tentacles are regarded as one of the most influential bands to
emerge from the UK’s festival scene, formed during the solstice at
Stonehenge Free Festival 1983 going on to become psychedelic staples
at Glastonbury and other festivals. The creative vision of multi-
instrumentalist Ed Wynne, the Ozrics’ uniquely trippy
soundscapes connect fans of progressive rock, psychedelia and dance
music culture. 
In the 1980s the band built a fan base on the festival circuit and made a
series of cassette releases, sold at gigs and via a fan club. Their first
label release was Pungent Effulgent in 1989, followed by Erpland
(1990), an album dedicated to Erp, a character who appears on many of
the band's album artworks. 1991 saw the Strangeitude LP. The track
"Sploosh!" was used by BMW in an advertising campaign and became
the band's only single. By 1993 their Jurassic Shift album reached the
top ten of the U.K. album charts.
The band has gone through many line-up changes, with only Ed Wynne
(guitar and keyboards) maintaining a constant presence. The sonically
illustrated excursion through the musical realms the band have explored
has resulted in 17 albums to date, with their latest, Lotus Unfolding,
released in their 40 th anniversary year. The band maintain their identity
and continue to tour worldwide and produce intriguing albums.
