4 stars An early live album from the OZRICS which came after the "Strangeitude" album. So most of the tunes are lifted from that album as well as "Pungent Effulgent" and "Erpland". We're told in this concert that an underslunky is a wollen, scratchy undergarment. I must say the songs here are as good as the studio versions. These guys can play.

"Dots Thots" opens with atmosphere then we get some guitar after 2 minutes as drums and bass join in. The guitar is pretty aggressive before 4 1/2 minutes followed by flute. "Og-Ha-Be" like the first track is a very early song from the band. This one kicks some serious butt 3 minutes in before settling back with flute again. The tempo continues to shift. "Erpland" opens with drums as bass and guitar arrive quickly in this uptempo tune. Some huge bass here. The guitar is ripping it up after 2 1/2 minutes. Flute 4 minutes in. Great tune and my favourite.

"White Rhino Tea" is a killer song live. "Bizarre Bazaar" features lots of flute and drums early. Guitar after 1 1/2 minutes takes a prominant role and later at 3 1/2 minutes. "Sunscape" has flute early on that I really enjoy. Also the bass 2 1/2 minutes in. "Erpsongs" is spacey to start and pretty laid back throughout.. "Snake Pit" has a fairly heavy rhythm to it before settling then kicking back in. "Kick Muck" is such a good tune. Lots of guitars on this one. "O-I" has some good flute early and nasty guitar late. "Ayurvedic" opens with one of the band members telling us what the title of this album means then saying to the crowd "We can do one more if you want". This one is like a long 15 minute jam with some reggae parts.

A good live document to have really of the classic OZRICS lineup.
