Acid Mothers Temple are unique psychedelic Japanese Rock gods. The core of the band formed in 1995 and led on guitar by Kawabata Makoto, the line up since 2004 has been fairly stable other than frequent guest vocalists popping in.
In terms of a noise driven rock show, they tend to display have the full works, vocal looping, bowed guitars and songs that disappear down unsuspecting paths, then dart back in the opposite direction with the audience gripping on for dear life while they witness a performance like no other.
Quoted from a previous show – “Listening without ear plugs at something like this… it’s like sex without a condom”. This remark held painfully true, as the Acid Mothers Temple live experience is anything but safe.
The band have notched up 50 albums plus over the last 20 years. Not much more to say really than… Darkest Kent, you have been warned!
