Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. - Absolutely Freak Out (Zap Your Mind!) 2 x CDs
An excellent way to get acquainted with this modern-day Japanese psychedelic outfit who have been getting a lot of ink recently. This reissues the now out of print lp version with bonus tracks that add a full album's worth of material. "Who are Acid Mothers Temple? A freak-out group for the 21st century, founded in 1996 by members of the Acid Mothers Temple soul-collective. Led by Kawabata Makoto (Musica Transonic. Toho Sara, etc.) a 100% genuine cult band that are on a mission to give you massive frontal lobe damage. Imagine spending an acid tinged weekend up a Japanese mountain with only a battered tape player for company. The sounds emanate as and when they wish, it might be a snatch of ear shredding guitar noise, an ambient electronic pulse, traditional folk or the sweet sound of a handmaiden warbling ..whatever you hear it's never boring and you never guess what's coming next. A brand new 124 minute trip through the coolest weird and wonderful sounds from the AMT mothership."
