I am new to this board, although I have been an Ozrics fan since about 1991.
What prompted me to join is that I have a question to which I have been unable to find an answer anywhere else.
I have been going through my Ozrics CD collection, and have realised that on the live album 'Underslunky' (1991), track 7 is a version of 'Tidal Otherness', except that on the artwork it is called 'Erpsongs' instead. Checking on discogs.com, the same seems to be the case on all the artwork for all releases (vinyl, cassette, CD).
My question is, is this a deliberate re-naming of the track, or was it a mistake that then got repeated? The latter seems likely, as the original studio version was track 7 on the 'Erpsongs' (1985) album, suggesting that on 'Underslunky' the album name (i.e. 'Erpsongs') was used in error instead of the track name.
(Note: As I'm sure many fans will know, there is also a much shorter alternate version of 'Tidal Otherness': track 4 of 'The Bits Between The Bits' (1989))
If anyone can shed any light (fruit salad-y or otherwise ) on this matter it would be much appreciated.

I would doubt it's a mistake because all versions are like that. I have the original LP and it's titled 'Erpsongs on there. And there's been a number of reissues so surely there would have been a chance to correct it. You never know though...
Either way it's the definitive version of that track for me.
