Acid Mothers Temple biography
Acid Mothers Temple is a completely freak out japanese neo-hippie tribe led by the guitarist Malato Kawabata (partially known for previous works published at the end of the 1970s). The band were formed in 1996 under the name Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O (Underground Freak Out). They started their career playing perpetual psychedelic jams very closed to Amon Duul II and Gong at their most gorgeous spacey rock moments. Since 1997 until now AMT have been one of the most prolific rock bands in term of CDs production. Their catalogue contains more than twenty albums (including different collaborations, with Kinski, David Aellen.) in less than ten years. Each album contains its special dose of "acid" musical fantasies, including lot of fuzzy guitars, "stoned" vocals, droning synthscapes and some futurist Eastern raga sounds. Unfortunately with a such big profusion in musical creation the quality is not obvious all the time. Some releases turn to parodies, pathetic imitations of old, primitive spacey rock bands. Nevertheless a few albums are really great and seriously beautiful; the psychedelic and electric bluesy "Pataphysical Freak Out Mu", the transcendent and sometimes almost jazzy 41st Century splendid Man. The tulmutuous soundtrack "Wild gals a go-go", the semi acoustic / world "La Novia" and "Univers Zen Ou De Zero A Zero" contain classic moments. The band have known several declinations under almost non distinct projects as Acid Mothers Temple & the Cosmic Inferno.

In Search of Lost Divine Ark
Acid Mothers Temple Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by SpecialKindOfHell

4 stars Seeing Acid Mothers Temple on stage, you get an air of calm from the band, they're very comfortable up there, and they playfully unleash a sonic menagerie of sounds that wash over and bounce around everywhere. Sometimes a bit slower and in droning fashion, and at other times loud and strong. This recent LP "In Search of Lost Divine Ark" starts out as if the gas pedal is all the way down. The first song "Space Speed Suicide" starts everything with a huge roar, a loud Hawkwind-esque barrage of distortion and pulsating solo guitar rants. An as usual spacey quality surrounds the tracks here, which are all strong numbers, the extended "Born Free Stone Free" and "In Search of Lost Divine Ark" being standouts. The former tune is reminiscent of recent work by Master Musicians of Bukkake.

Perhaps part of it's strength comes from being released on experimental music label Important Records. First issues came on beautiful light blue swirled vinyl, with second pressings being on black. The LP packaging is stunning in addition, with an uncoated thick stock gatefold cover with wonderful, rather subdued and minimal, artwork than what they usually produce for their releases. Will hope for much more of this sort of thing from them in the future. Highly recommended.

Acid Mothers Gong: Live in Tokyo
Acid Mothers Temple Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Crossover Team

3 stars Whatever you may think of Daevid Allen, no-one can doubt that he is an unusual person to say the least. Born in 1938 he has been a mainstay of the avant garde for many years and this album captures the latest incarnation of Gong, where they joined forces with Acid Mother Temple, a Japanese band performing a similar style of music.

This is the second album to be released from the 2004 tour, and captures a band that are kicking together producing music that is at the very limits of that definition. My wife tells me that the simple way to describe this album is just to say that it is crap, and I know where she is coming from. This is music that is out there, way out there, and if you want to see a photo of a naked 66 year old hippie strutting his stuff onstage then just look inside this digipak. www.voiceprint.co.uk

Pataphisical Freak Out MU!!
Acid Mothers Temple Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by AtomicCrimsonRush
Special Collaborator Symphonic Team

3 stars Stoner psych rock not for the squeamish...

The Acid Mothers Temple unit is a strange one, and I had no idea what to expect though their album covers signify a return to the vintage psychedelic acid fuelled flower power of the late 60s. I don't mind a brain blast occasionally of psychedelia such as Gong, or space rock such as Hawkwind, but those bands are nowhere near as tripped out as Acid Mother's Temple, not even close. It is like vintage Gong without the lyrics, mixed with Hawkwind's jamming sessions from their earlier years such as "Space Ritual", and one may also detect hints of krautrock such as Can or Grobschnitt's "Solar Music". "Pataphysical Freak Out MU!!" is extreme acid rock taken to the Nth degree. The band are concentric on capturing spaced out LSD soaked atmospherics using any musical instrument at their disposal. The guitars are a prominent focus using phased wah wah effects and sustained string bends.

The opening track 'Cosmic Audrey/Acid Takion' sounds like Jimi Hendrix had forgotten the words; it is simply mind expanding spacey guitar with a ton of feedback and a driving fast tempo beat. It is a well played guitar solo, but it has no riff or tune and is completely improvised over a sonic musical scape. It is certainly one of the better tracks on the album simply for its brute force and no holds barred killer guitar that shreds into the brain; designed to blow the brain apart in would say. Makoto Kawabata is the guitar speed master who is joined by layers of Atsushi Tsuyama bass explosions and Hajime Koizumi of percussion blasts.

Next on the menu, is a dose of tranquillity on 'White Summer Of Love/Third Eye Of The Whole World', with some acoustics and ambience, once again without a melody, or tune, but simply a hypnotic sound to kick back to, presumably after a hit of the acid; it is a come down song. The space whispers are reminiscent of Gong but not as sensuous, though the vocals on 'Astrological Overdrive' are a little more relaxing with all the spacey textures vibrating around them.

The music though on the album builds with hypnotic repetitions and includes extremely distorted guitars such as on the lengthy 'Blue Velvet Blues' that is virtually an improvised guitar on high phased fuzzy reverb. Makoto again takes center stage but it may grate on the nerves after about 6 minutes, though it is only about half way through. The sound is ultra-psyched out and is obviously LSD induced. It would not be surprising to learn that the whole album was created under the influence, such is the vibe of the music.

This is quite a chilling album that left me cold from wanting to explore further into this band. It is certainly a curio and the band have produced a plethora of other albums equally as trippy in the content one would expect. They have an underground cult following for good reason and will only appeal to a certain section of listeners; a very elite section at that who are into stoner rock with an extreme acid fuelled edge. It is what it is, and I would say if you wanted to listen to some of the trippiest music on the planet perhaps you could go no further than Acid Mother's Temple and the Melting Paraisio UFO, and this is one of their highest rated albums, therefore a good place to start. This stoner rock is not for the squeamish, that is for certain.

La Nvia
Acid Mothers Temple Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by octopus-4

4 stars I wasn't really expecting a thing like this when I decided to give another try to a band that's quite highly rated on PA but I've never been too much into, apart their "In C" that's a good interpretation of the Riley's masterpiece.

"La Novia" is a traditional Occitane wedding song. It's sung in Gascone dialect. AMT open it like a mantra, but what initially seems an "om" immediately changes into a celtic choir. I wouldn't be surprised to see Alan Stivell in the lineup, and effectively the longhair- longbearded guy in the sleeve photo is similar to the Breton harpist. Five minutes of celtic choir and the instruments replace it with a piece of psychedelic folk which grows slowly and becomes just a little more chaotic in the following minutes. The disturbing high-pitched electronic whistles and the quite absurd and apparently meaningless noise of the first albums is no longer present. At minute 11 the track is effectively chaotic and noisy but we have followed a path to reach this noise, and it has a sense. It's a fusion between Krautrock and Folk that last for some minutes, becoming more psychedelic at about minute 14 but without loosing the folk element. I think I'd like to be invited to a wedding of this kind. The electric and highly distorted guitar increases the noise at minute 15. At this point I could expect to hear Syd Barrett's vocalisms as in Pow R Toc H. It's a very floydian part even if the guitar doesn't have anything to do with the sounds used by both Barrett and Gilmour, but the tempo and the bass may come from Pompeii. They should have had a lot of fun while composing and playing it. Everything slows down at minute 20 when the music acquires a more oriental (far-eastern) mood even if still mixed with celtic-medieval melodies. The song restarts. There are just strange voices singing, like spirits in a foggy night, while the main celtic theme is continuously repeated. It's minute 23 when a guitar major chord introduces a new theme. The bass enters strongly and a new melody, still "folkedelic", begins. The heaviness of this part reminds to 35007's "Liquid". At minute 28 the drums change the tempo and the noise increases, then everything calms down. At minute 30 this mixture of high-pitched sounds and keyboard major chords seems like it was chill-out, but after one minute guitar and bass change again. At minute 31 it gives the impression of being a "coda", but there are still 9 minutes ahead. The guitar chord suddenly changes with an additional dissonance at minute 32, while a bass scale is what remains of the original melody. The noise increases but at minute 35 the main theme re-appears even if immersed in the noise. A very good acoustic guitar solo appears in the last minute to close this very good track. 2/3 of the albums are gone.

"Bois-Tu De La Biere"(Do You Drink Beer?) looks like another traditional French song with some background noises, just to remind that this is a psychedelic band. Not bad also those 3 minutes, specially when the noises replace the voice on the guitar harping.

A spacey start for the last track: "Bon Voyage Au LSD" (Have a nice trip with LSD). More than an acid trip it looks more like a space trip, similar to the pink Tangerine Dream and dark as the most ambient works of Senmuth. The spare guitar notes contribute in adding a sense of Krautrock, but the sound of the violin that appears here and there has the taste of the contemporary classic. If this album has a defect is that this track doesn't have anything to do with the previous two. They are equally good, but it's like this track was reused as a filler from a different recording session. Respect to Tangerine Dream the things move faster. The rhythmless beginning is chaotic and noisy just after 5 minutes and the chaos increases helped by drums accents after minute 8. At minute 12 the guitar becomes rock and even with all the background noise this starts sounding effectively as a late 60s acid thing. A sort of skilled version of Amon Duul, but with more modern sounds, like the second part of Tsunami of the already mentioned 35007. This goes ahead with the volume decreasing until the sudden end.

A very good psychedelic album. something that honestly I wasn't expecting to find.

2 stars I've been well impressed by their version of "In C", but this is more than minimalistic!

Why do they need a so big lineup to play some bells and a fixed high pitched disturbing note? After some minutes the bells quit and the long note like a "beep" is the only thing that remains. And this for about 7 minutes....

What comes later can be called a psychedelic tune. Being so repetitive and sometimes weird is not bad. It has a touch of Krautrock given by the acoustic untuned guitar and a nice title plus I hear a connection to the Gong. Repetitive and hypnotic, this is how I think they wanted to be and they succeeded. Four minutes of this stuff followed by a sudden change to noise which persists until the end.

A bluesy untuned guitar gives birth to a very acid track. The female voice seems coming from a doped version of Angel's Egg. Very trippy.

Dark noisy psychedelia for "Mammary Intercourse". Noisy mainly. One thing is making "structured noise" like Pink Floyd in the second part of "Saucerful of secrets", other is making this noise. Also trips need relax sometimes. When it calms down after about four minutes people is probably already escaped. Don't play it live even if the second part is a little better but still very noisy.

What follows is a jam session in Amon Duul's style, just played better. When it becomes obsessive, thanks to the percussions, it's true psychedelia. One of the best things of this album.

The B string is still not well tuned and this adds a touch of weirdness to the harping. Hey in any case this guy can play a guitar. Vocals add a trippy touch. Still thinking to Amon Duul.

The closer is a reprise of the first track. I suggest skipping both.

Well, some moments are barely listenable, others are not. I like psychedelia, but this band appears to be out of my pot.

2 stars for me.

Review by The Truth

4 stars Acid Mothers Temple is one of those bands that I can't help but loving just for the self-indulgence alone. I find it extremely awesome (and fun) that they create music at the rate they do however the heck they want and it's that type of freedom that flows through many of their records, many that I love.

But this album is a different thing entirely from their psychedelic albums that recall the sixties themself, this album is dark and pulsating electronic drone music that is ominous and sort of an obscurity in the Acid Mothers Temple catalog.

This album is a beauty, the sound the band achieves (there's even polished production!) is stunning and leaves the listener breathless. With each second that passes in this album, the more your mind is pulled into the spaced out void of drone that is prominent on this record. It's more literally "space-out" than the bands earlier space rock releases!

For some it may not be easy on the ears, but it's the easiest on the ears I've heard from this band and they really created a beautiful record here, not just a self-indulgent psych record.

Review by zravkapt

3 stars Acid Mothers Temple are a Japanese space-rock outfit who apparently named themselves after Krautrockers Ash Ra Tempel. They are known for their humourous album and song titles which are both parodies and tributes to many prog and classic rock artists. The name of this album is obviously a reference to a famous King Crimson song. Generally what AMT do is called 'freak-out' music. Psych rock guitars are mixed with spacey synthesizers; sometimes other elements are added to the mix as well. This album features Ruins/Koenjihyakkei drummer/leader Tatsuya Yoshida.

This is a very short album with only three songs on it. No lyrics but there are some vocals. The longest song, opener and title track opens with a ringing noise which eventually gets joined by sparse percussion and some synth sounds, amongst other things. This track somewhat reminds me of the early Tangerine Dream/Klaus Schulze stuff. Once in awhile you hear some wordless vocals similar to the 'space whispering' of Gong. I love the tone of the synths at times; they sound like something from a 1980s sci-fi movie. Not a whole lot of guitar in this song. Around the 11 minute mark an industrial type rhythm starts. Some of the synths get atonal and whiny.

"The Creation Of The Human Race" begins very spacey (imagine that!) Around 1 1/2 minutes Tatsuya starts drumming, sounding like Klaus Schulze in Ash Ra Tempel. Some screams turn into wailing. Guitars join in and the band starts freakin' out. I like the mix of the rhythm section and what the guitar is doing starting before 4 minutes. This continues for a minute or two then they go into freak-out mode again. Later on they jam away boogie style before morphing into yet another freak-out. Some space whispers at the end. "Dalai Gama" has some string instruments followed by a cool drum pattern by Tatsuya. Lots of spacey sounds here. More of those 80s sci-fi movie sounds in the middle as the other instruments fade away. This continues as it is joined by some echoed female talking and a cello-like synth sound.

I've only heard a few albums by these guys but they generally don't change too much between albums. I've heard better and I've heard worse from them. I don't think too many groups in the past 20 years can match AMT for their freak-outs and spaciness. Sometimes an acquired taste, but these guys are good at what they do. Nothing essential but an enjoyable listen once in awhile. 3 stars.

In C

Review by octopus-4
Special Collaborator RIO/Avant/Zeuhl Team

3 stars I'm not a fan of this band that I find sometimes unusefully noisy and almost boring, specially in their first albums, but this is a pleasant exception.

"In C" is the minimalistic masterpiece of that genius known as Terry Riley. It's a sort of contemporary classic piece based on a single chord (a C major) that can be played "ad libitum" by a number of instruments decided by the director whose characteristic is to play that chord with a delay between one instrument and another. Told in this way it may appear crazy, but I suggest listening to the original (or to one of the originals as the various interpretations of the piece can be considered all originals). Said so, the major difference between the AMT version and the one released by Riley is in the use of some "psychedelic" sounds in addition to the standard instruments.

Then we have two additional pieces based on the same idea: "In E" that's a bit more chaotic and discordant, in one word: spacey, and "In D" that deserves some more words.

As "In C" this is a major chord, but it's played continuously and the result is an hypnotic mantra on which harmonics and very little variations are the only things which change during the about 20 minutes of the piece.

The whole album catches the right spirit of the Riley's composition and adds, if you listen carefully enough, a little touch of darkness coming from the band's psychedelic background that's more evident on the two non-Riley's pieces.

Not for all the tastes. I suggest this album to fans of the pink period of Tangerine Dream, and of Krautrock in general. I rate it 3 stars as it doesn't add a lot to an idea that was original at the beginning of the 60s and because it's not for "any" prog collection, but I want to remark that it's a very good album of a band that I usually don't like and the only reason why I'm not giving it 4 stars is that it doesn't fit in the PA definition mentioned above.

3 stars For how distorted and fuzzy this band's live material I've heard previously is, this actually sounds pretty good. They do a very good job of pulling off the live freak-out rock and the set list has my favorite tracks by them on it. What's not to like?

Well, as I said, most of their live material is pretty distorted and although this sounds better, it's still in need of some production. Other than this though, I absolutely love the performance, the playing is stellar. I wish I could've been there to see these guys play this concert because it must've been pretty awesome.

3 stars, AMT forever baby!

Pataphisical Freak Out MU!!
Acid Mothers Temple Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by MaxSilva96

4 stars Acid Mothers Temple its a modern psychedelic rock band from Japan,but the word modern doesn't mean that they are a weak band. In this record they are much better than in the debut(wich is a 59 min long noise rock jam with some moments of beatifful space rock).In Pataphisical Freak Out MU!! they divided their music in several songs,long songs,but no 50 minutes space noise jam. The first one Cosmic Audrey/Acid Takion begins as a spoken piece with space effects,gradually some guitar feedback can be heard on the background,and then,the spoken words finishe and Kawabata shows why is the speed guru.Acid Takion begins with feedback that becames a very fast and furios guitar work with a lot of distortion and wah-wah.The druming is very simple,like the bass,put provides a good base for Kawabata and his crazy guitar. White Summer of Love is a nice song with some acoustic guitar and eletronics providing a cosmic background,some voices can be heard,that are very similar to Gong's space whispers,a very relaxing song.Third Eye of the Whole its more guitar oriented,very calm and relaxing too. Golden Bat Blues Dead its a blues,but not a commom blues,a very freak out blues.Very calm in some aspects,because its not as fast and furious as Acid Takion,but still with a very crazy and acid guitar by Kawabata. Mr Hardy Guidey Man its kind of a folk song,with a hurdy-gurdy an some stoned vocals,its a little weak and boring.Magic Aum LSD its another spoken piece with a female voice that lead us to Astrological Overdrive,another relaxing song but very repetive,with some vocals. Rigth About the Rainbow/You're My Only Super Sunshine/Rigth About the Rainbow II starts as a calm and relaxing song,becames a feak out with a lot of noise and noise,that will make you thing "my stereo must be broken!". Blue Velvet Blues is the best song in my opinion,with a very calm and slow,but very fuzzed guitar.This song is relaxing in a strange way. Ok,my final verdict is 4 stars,a very good album,excellent addition to any prog collection,put not a master-piece of prog.But if you dont like psychedelic rock,space rock,noise and" stoned music",run from everthing released by Acid Mothers Temple. This is my first review,hope you like,sorry by any mistake,english is not my native language,soo...
