Modern psych legend Mike Vest has been rather busy since I last worked with him back in 2016 when he appeared, along with his then band, Blown Out, on the ‘Magnetic North’ compilation LP. Since that last outing on DRR, Mike has featured on albums by the aforementioned Blown Out (who are sadly no more), Melting Hand, Dodge Meteor, Lush Worker, HaiKai No Ku, Drunk In Hell, Bong, Oblivion Reptilian and Ozo. No one can accuse Mike of being a slouch! With Ozo Mike is joined by Karl D’Silva on sax and Graham Thompson on drum duties and, between them, they combine to create a wonderful sonic assault.
Following on from their debut album ,‘Saturn’, released on Riot Season earlier this year, Ozo’s second full length, ‘Pluto’, explores a more darker and aggressive theme. Beautifully violent alto sax improvisations; pounding lead drums and psychedelic bass tones; destroyed guitars and electric saz melodies. This album is not for the feint hearted.
‘Pluto’ by Ozo is a limited pressing of 300 copies in two variants:-
150 copies pressed on transparent red, heavyweight vinyl with splatter effects.
150 copies pressed on purple vinyl.
All orders purchased through the DRR website come with an instant digital download of the album and a vinyl sticker:-
