Acid Mothers Temple

We bring you one of the most prolific bands of the 90s and 00s with Japan's ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE who have recorded over three dozen records and like eight bazillion singles.One of the few "hippie" bands that are cool to like. Is it because they act like the are from outerspace ? Is it because they were on the cover of Wire Magazine ? Is it because they speak the worst English ever and it's cute when they talk to the crowd – Well probably – but we hope to think it's mostly because these guys play balls to wall-freak the fuckout-insaneo psych rock and roll. From heavy Hawkwind-style rock jams to gentle ambient drift, it's all here, and it's all sooo very psychedelic. They create noises and sounds that shoudln't even be possible from a single guitar. While we joke about how many records these hairies release, we also always have to perk up and pay attention when there's a new AMT opus. Cause most of the time, they're well worth hearing. The new live band fetaures – Tabata Mitsuru (Zeni Geva, Boredoms), Shimura Koji (Miminokoto, High Rise, Mainliner) and Okano Futoshi (Ghost) alongside AMT stalwarts "dancin' king" Higashi Hiroshi and "speed guru" Kawabata Makio
