Nukli
Nukli    
NUKLI were a festival band in the style of OZRIC TENTACLES but were vastly overlooked as they never released any album until after their break-up. They sprang out of a space-punk outfit formed in the early 80's by an eccentric London guitarist, a psychedelic visionary known as "PSi Steve". Like many of their peers, they became known mainly by word of mouth and through casettes they sold at gigs. At various festivals, they performed long improvised electronic psychedelic music that incorporated many influences ranging from space rock to raggae, drawing on the sense of freedom and creativity that made the festival scene so vibrant and refreshing. They went through several personnel changes, kicked around a lot, even supported OZRIC TENTACLES at the Rock Garden in 1989. nukli.jpg  
 By the early 90's, however, the English Criminal Justice Bill had all but destroyed free festivals, leaving bands like NUKLI no place to rehearse or record. When their keyboard player had his entire equipment robbed twice, he decided to quit and emigrated to Canada; the band thus simply called it a day.  
Their sole album consists of archival material retrieved from 8-track tapes. After much coming and going between the UK and Canada for the keyboard player's input, the tapes were remastered by Delirium Records and a CD released under the title "The Time Factory" in 1997. The album consists of mind-melting funkadelic space prog with influences from HAWKWIND, GONG, Steve HILLAGE and early PORCUPINE TREE, with lots of trippy effects, sound gimmicks and good jamming. Take away HAWKWIND's heavy-metal overtones, add some FLOYDian influences, a little less Middle-Eastern flavour than OZRIC's plus a vocalist, and you'll get an idea of what NUKLI sound like. The production, gimmicks and vocals are not all perfect but the album is definitely worth checking out if you're into the festival/jam band scene.

Recommended to fans of MAGIC MUSHROOM BAND, HERE AND NOW, OROONIES, ULLULATORS, WEBCORE, MANDRAGORA and of course, OZRIC TENTACLES.
