better than the later hotch potch nodens reissue , the thing with this stuff is its a little rough and ready but its just got so much soul and has a spirit thats a little lost in modern music.Its a great shame this was never on vinyl or cd as its an absolute classic album.

The Grove of Selves is the only studio album by Nodens Ictus (Spacelines is a compilation CD which features some of the tracks of this album). It also incredibly rare, having only been pressed on cassette. It is available in digital form in the ethers however, which is what prompted me to write a few words about it. Its story is as follows.In the 80s Ozric Tentacles was a free-form improvisation band, playing anywhere that would have them. This included all manner of DIY free festivals, many of which took place in the middle of fields. Due to the weather it was not always possible to play outdoors in winter and The Crypt club in London was one of the few venues that would have them jam in their premises, usually billed as Ozric Tenticles – not funny. Some time in ’86 The Crypt owner Andy More asked Ed to come up with some downtempo music in order to play it in the chill-out room at the club. Ed and Joie put together some tunes and played as Nodens Ictus a few times, sometimes joined by Jon and/or Merv on stage. When in ’87 Ed went to Thailand for a couple of months, the Ozrics were obviously put on ice. It was in that year that The Grove of Selves was released, perhaps in order to have something available for the fans, as the next Ozrics tape, Sliding Gliding Worlds, appeared the following year. Since the Ozrics only released tapes at the time, such was Nodens' fate too.But what about the music? Well, since four of the tunes, the title track, Aerial Procession, Way of the Wind and The Gong of Ra are available on Spacelines –and they are probably the best of the lot– the contents should be sort of half-known to Nodens fans. Apart from The Gong of Ra, which quite uptempo, the rest are beatless ambient and very good at that. The rest of the album has varying tempos and ranges from beatless to some tracks with quite a heavy beat. To Occur in a Forest is all floaty, with a drifting synth sequence driving it along. One of my faves on the album. The Melding of the Mythical Minds is the heaviest tune on the album and also the darkest. There is a low, sinister drone throughout it accompanied by an arpeggio and very sharp sounding clicks. Some dark synth solos on it too. Sarukwa is an ethnic tune and wouldn’t be out of place on one of the Ozrics’ tapes. It’s probably the polar opposite of The Melding… in that it sounds quite positive. The second side opens with the aforementioned The Gong of Ra, followed by Somewhere Indian. Not sure it sounds Indian to my ears, but it does have an eastern feel. Whistling synths, percussion and a father clock-like chime lowered a few octaves chanting AUM throughout. Miasma is a very brief tune that features a synth sequence and a few bass notes and ends around the minute mark. Banging bones has a manic arpeggio coming in and out over relatively heavy beats, while synth solos in various sounds punctuate the tune. Effects are fired at various times too. Generally speaking, most of the tunes are not as busy as Ozric tracks and feature fewer effects than them too. Long Musick is a floaty ambient tune with a minimal beat and another of my favourites. Finally, Bouncing in the Important Countryside sounds like something off of Tantric Obstacles, with a steady beat and a kind of squelchy sequence.It would be great if the master tapes of the album have survived the Colorado fire that burnt down the Ozrics’ former house, but having seen photos of incinerated Ozric album master tapes I reckon that’s rather unlikely. Which is a pity because in my book this tape is as essential as the Ozric tapes from the period. If you like other Nodens Ictus material this is worth hunting down, albeit in pirated digital form. You might want to google Head Duster blog. Be warned that the sound quality is not nearly as good as their CD or digital releases though. The cassette itself is very scarce and extremely hard to find so to the collectors, be patient and good luck.8.5/10Update: Check out nodensictus.com for an official 320kbps version.

This is great, thanks. Long time Ozric and NI fan. Discovered The Ullulators more recently. That mid 80's underground British space scene is definitely on my list of places I intend to visit when I get the time machine up and running.
