Acid Mothers Temple and its many offshoots has produced so much music I don’t know if the bandmembers even remember everything. I know I tried to make some kind of guide but I am still stuck at part I. It is like opening the box of pandora, you start off and think, hey this is cool, so much music and then it just does not stop, the same bandmembers are switching bands, quiting, starting different bands with almost the same name or side project that are something completely different, it just does not stop. As far as I know their latest releases are “Reverse of Rebirth in Universe” in riot season in 2018, a re-release called ‘Either The Fragmented Body Or The Reconstituted Soul’ on Necio Records and a very dirty split with Orphan Goggles in 2019 and rework of ‘Minstrel In The Galaxy’. The repress of ‘The Ripper At The Heaven’s Gates Of Dark’ and also a split with Yoo Doo Right and also and album offshoot called Acid Mothers Reynols. Another split with Paul Kidney Experience. In December 2020 they released ‘Zero Diver or Puroto Guru’ on Necio Records. I also made a bit of an ongoing list about Makoto Kawabata core member of Acid Mothers Temple) with al his solo releases.
AMT is a band of many talents and on this album they show again their strength. This album may be more listenable then the others, more hypnotic and more sensitive. I love it. If you are a fan of all these Japanese psych and noise stuff, be sure to check out the cosmic side of Japan.
Now they return with a live EP from their show on Levitation sessions (order it here) . A first clip has been released with the ‘Dark Star Blues Track’. If you are in for some more Levition sessions then check the ones out from Oh Sees, Kikagaku Moyo and The Black Angels.
