4 stars The first recording by the OZRICs and simply the best of their early cassettes !

Erpsongs features short, various songs which style defines the way for OZRICs' future sound: space rock, electronic, reggae, ambient, world... In 1985, the band synthetizes the best of GONG, HAWKWIND, HERE & NOW and TIM BLAKE to later concoct something surprisingly personnal. At this moment, elements were not completely mixed together, but all ideas were here.

The first track, Velmwend, is a perfect opener: fast and energic space rock. It goes on with the psychedelic Fast Dots and the lazy reggae-ish Thyroid. Then comes one of the highlights of the casette, Spiral Mind. Completely different from the song on Waterfall Cities, it has trippy and catchy melody. The band confirms its electronic ambitions in the following three tracks. Dharma Reggae curiously sounds like... KLAUS SCHULZE ! The rest of the cassette alternates between enjoyable space guitar jams and ambient experimentations. TIM BLAKE's influence can be well perceived, for example in Misty Gliss.

Erpsongs represents the birth of a new band, which will modernize and spearhead the space rock genre. This eclectic recording sounded very promising. A must have for any OZRICs or space rock fan !
