ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE - Space / psychedelic rock?

 

 

Acid Mothers Temple is a completely freak out japanese 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 CD 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” 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 present 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.

I think people know my opinion about this band, so a big thumbs up coming from my direction. Also they would fit quite nicely into space/psychedelic rock, if this is not psychedelic I don't know what is.

Just a question though there are a few different factions of the band:

- Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
- Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. & Ultrasound (only one EP released so this one probably can be disregarded)
- Acid Mothers Temple & The Cosmic Inferno

plus the splits they have done with other bands.

I was wondering how this would be represented on the archives. Would they come all under the one name or are the different factions going to be slpit up?

It sort of shocks me that they aren't already here.  Perhaps not a "rock" band per say, but we've been adding plenty of non-"rock" bands lately.

Ah yes some of those should definately should be given a little though. Though I have not hear some of those bands, I'm seeing most are off shoots of Acid Mothers Temple. Just wondering how Tsurubami is? I have been tossing up getting Tsukuyomi Ni or Gekkyukekkaichi, which one would you suggest as a starting point?

It's easy Gekkuykekkaichi, this is so psychedelic and noisy work, my first one of Tsurubami, a lot of guitar distortion, wow! Then you should check Shohjohkisshohtan.

memowakeman, i'd really love to see that band here in PA!

I don't think they're really within our jurisdiction... since there's no space rock team, I guess whoever wants to can just go and add them once we have the ncessary information.

What's this supposed to be?  I merely agreed with you that they should be added, what more do you want?

I guess it depends whether or not these were fullblown band outfits with multiple releases. Otherwise we could of course considere it to be collaborations and list all of them as one entry in the Archives?Smile
