ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE:
Pride themselves on the drughead obsession of being “cosmic troubadours” in continual search for interstellar communication while delivering psychedelic space to their devoted followers.
Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. (and subsequent offshoots) is a Japanese psychedelic band, the core of which formed in 1995. The band is led by guitarist Kawabata Makoto and early in their career featured many musicians, but by 2004 the line-up had coalesced with only a few core members and frequent guest vocalists.
Acid Mothers Temple started their career playing perpetual psychedelic jams very closed to Amon Duul II and Gong at their most gorgeous spacey rock moments. The band has released albums frequently on a number of international record labels as well as the Acid Mothers Temple family record label, which was established in 1998 to document the activities of the whole collective. Their catalogue contains more than twenty albums. 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. Pitchfork gave them these words…
“..Acid Mothers Temple finding where early-70s Detroit intersected with Krautrock. It’s a thrilling piece of psychedelia that outperforms everything else..”
BOB LOG III:
A man in a human cannonball suit soon appeared from a side door, his head completely obscured by a tinted black helmet, its front welded into a telephone which seemed to wirelessly amplify his voice to the audience.
Bob Log III launched into a mind-blowing set, finger-picking his beaten-up black guitar for a sound of steel string blues and heavy rock n’ roll. The sound was reminiscent of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion if it had to be categorised, but his music would be better described as Jerry Lee Lewis crossed with a little of Tom Waits’ heavy industrial sounds.
