Bzzzzz...click!Er....I think , WAIT maybe, yes, dingdingding . . . AH !!! . . .we're in ! . . . Really ?!? Wow ! . . . . HHEELLOOOO !!Great, It works, we can see you all now! Been a while , good to be back online , hope your all floating along at the proper altitude, . . . (feels like we are !) Yay! Look forward to connecting with all you lot once again!
Hi Ed and Brandi, I have enjoyed your music for years!!! It is like a breath of fresh sunshine in a sea of cold chicken soup. Thanks for all of the voyages you have sent my mind on. Cleveland would LOVE to have you back.
Ah, . . . gee, . . . So many wonderful people we haven't seen in far, far too long ! I just have to take a quick second to give One Thousand Purple Thank Yous to an incredible type, who, as most of you know, has managed to keep this lovely site up and running for years longer than some of us are old ! . . . It's been beyond fortunate for us (more like essential), that he's has continued to be the one place where Ozric fans can go and know what dates the band is playing, when the a new release is coming out, find out what synths Ed uses, what Seaweed's favourite colour is, and even how to play Kick Muck ! It seems only appropriate that the message board should end up here. (Left to our own devices, we've gone through three different websites in that time, and I think they were all down for longer they were up !) There is no possible way that we can extend enough thanks to Mike Werning for his hard work, his charity, his time, and his dedication, we love you for it mate ! You’re a star !
Well then, as you know we are currently gearing up for a pretty heavy summer & fall of gigging, and there is only two short weeks left for us to get everything prepared. The bulk of the shows will be done by the current line-up Ed, Merv, Joie, and myself, though due to a few scheduling issues dotted around, you will also see Ollie, Dominic, and few others(?) poking their heads in from time to time, including former bassist, Vinny sitting in as a guest(?) of honour at his Eastern Haze Festival in Great Yarmouth, (. . . that is, if it's possible to be a guest at your own festival. . .)
We would like to take a minute as well, to encourage anyone who might have the weekend of June 1st-3rd free, to grab a mate and head on down to The Sunrise Celebration in our own local Somerset. We will be performing on Friday June 1st, . . . and . . . the performance will be recorded to be released on DVD later this year. The promoters have put a lot of time, effort, (and money) into making this a beautiful festival, and we want to see them succeed. Sunrise is a very young festival, in it’s first delicate years, and we want to do all we can to insure that they will be able to keep this event going. So, maybe even grab more than one mate. . . Actually, . . . what am I saying ?!? Grab all your mates, come down, camp out, (so you don’t have to worry about driving), and get off yer mash!!! ;D Make your way to the front of the stage, and be immortalized on DVD!!! We’re gonna need A LOT of people to help make enough noise for the recording !!! (After all crowds sound quieter outside, no walls to hold it all in.)We would love to see you all there, and besides, if you didn’t go, what would you be doing instead . . . ;D
love & light !
(hmm. . . I should probably copy that last paragraph and start a new thread, just so it can grab the eye, think I’ll do that.)

I am very freaked out now, because I have been waiting over a decade to see this band live. even though the line up has changed over the years, Dont matter now because I see you are supposed to be coming to Quebec city, July 6-07. I have bought everything from Sliding Gliding through to Pong Masters Ball, then I kinda stopped, well I'll resume now. I kinda gave up hope, I raised 2 kids on your music. I think I conceived one of them on it too. I was always hoping you would come to Montreal, I think you guys played there back in the early 90's but missed the tour date by a couple of weeks. Your music has brought me many places, Best driving music there ever was. So I wont go on but you got a couple of happy campers here. If you need a friend in Quebec for anything. Give me a shout. I'd be more than glad to assist your great band. I rember when you did that Gog in Ether over the net like in 97 or somthing, I cancelled some important stuff that day, just to sit by my computer and listen in, and of couse I purchased one Spice Doubt, with the fish gel, which is now kinda evaporated into erpland or somewhere.
I'll be hoping to meet you guys while you are here, but don't want bother you either. anyway I'll be up front Sporting A Psycadellic Tie Die you can count on that.
Cheers to you and your family and the rest of the Band.
Hello; It's great to see you both back online. Just wanted to say thanks for coming to the U.S. the last few years to tour. I got to see shows in Nashville in 2004, Cleveland in 2005, and Cincinnati in 2006. Hope we meet again in 2007. Peace to you both, J.B.

ed, Brandi, greetings from st paul minnesota. ive been a fan sense the whiskey a go go in Hollywood in 1995.you have fans up here as i have spread the word. i even played a cover of eternal wheel with my local band.
so....my 1st post....so when are you all going to play san francisco again?...that was a great act of defiance@ the fillmore last time round....the stage manager had that "how dare they" look all over his face,,,so I suppose it's safe to assume you'll be giging THE INDEPENDENT this time round...could'nt hardly believe that ozrics was opening that show anyway...it was a little like the beatles opening for juniors garage band...lol...BTW the new album kicks ass,,,,and yeah I'm that crazy mofo that gave all those T-shirts out in front of the fillmore on the spirals tour...cheers!
Hello Brandi & Ed, if Mohammed does not go to the mountain, the mountain will come to Mohammed. Because there are no concerts planned for Holland this year, we will see Ed and co in the Picturedrome in Holmfirth on the oct 5th!! Looking forward to it,
