I haven't heard their latest few albums, but I've been told by some people that they've started doing good stuff again (after quite a few albums of rather Middle-of-the-road material)
Nonetheless, for me, so far the big classic has been Erpland, so try that on for buns. Later material might be even more dancefriendly though.
Destroy: Swirly Termination. Messy compilation-ish thing. Other than that, a lot of what I've heard is sort of "search if you really like the band, destroy if you just want a few of the best ones" f.ex. Jurassic Shift, Strangeitude and Become The Other.

The, uh, i dunno.
It's like this. You know how on like early post-S.B. Floyd, there's (excluding the song Saucerful of Secrets) mostly pretty slow songs, and they put in little sonic goodies that make it "trippy", or whatever, and it's pretty good, ok, O.T. plays at double speed and does nothing but the sonic goodies, at which point it turns into self indulgent, untastefull crap.

Despite this poor mental association, that particular tune was pretty good, as I remember.

If you don't like noodles, keep well away. I have enjoyed their Live Underslunky, er, live album many times. "Sploosh" is a fantastic song wherever you hear it.
And more to the point, Eat Static sprung from Ozrics, thus classicifying them forever...

I've got a bunch of this stuff now thanks to emusic. But, I got really bummed using my monthly limit on double-cd ozric albums, so I actually took to the store and bought some of the rereleased double cds on snapper where they give you 2 albums for the price of one, basically. So far, I guess I have maybe 6 albums and plan on getting at least 4 more. They're a cool band because you can work to it and it seems to enhance concentration. Or you can get totally fucked and it seems to deteriorate concentration. Really, quite a multi-functioning aural tool.

Why is this noodles? It's instrumental, not freeform jamming. Most of the stuff I have so far is synthy, bassy reggae and dub with textural guitar washes and odd sound effects with the occasional speedy guitar-driven kids' toy commercial rocker.
The strange thing about it is that it's very melodic for music with no melody and which goes nowhere.
I think it actually defies genre categorization. You could simply call it "rock," but many would disagree with you since it sounds like background music you might hear at an aquarium or something.

I went to a local noise show recently where the sound guy was playing Ozrics. I felt that didn't bode well, and I was right - it didn't - he shut the sound off as the first act started hacking at a pig's head with a machete. In disgust I went home and gave away all my Ozrics cassettes... part of me wishes I'd kept Underslunky, though.
Classic-ish, but they all sound a bit the same for me... oh, but destroy Curious Corn, tis pretty horrible.

Paper Monkeys sounding really great as the last of the summer sunshine is streaming through the windows. The artwork is LOL prog rock but I'm really digging the nu age feel..

I always liked them live in the late 80s then found the material in the early 90s really glossy. So maybe I just need Afterswish if I actually need anything.
Used to see them quite a bit when I was tripping at things like Mutoid Waste Co parties. Some of the pre-90 stuff live has turned up torrented over the last few years.
