Event description

Description

The heaving of a sun
Pressure oscillations ring
Like a bell through black
Space
My heart skips
A beat
Trails to the cosmic vibrations

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
Opening Set by DJ Ujikaji
In conjunction with the launch of Trails to the Cosmic Vibrations LP (AMT split with The Observatory)

Art Direction by Yuen Chee Wai



Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.

Formed in 1995 by Makoto Kawabata at the same time as the Acid Mothers Temple Soul Collective. The group released its debut album in 1997 on PSF Records (Japan), and it was selected as one of the year's best albums in the The Wire magazine (UK). In 1998 the group played their first tours of the US and Europe. Since then the group has released a huge number of albums on labels from many different countries. As of 2017, the group has released around 80 albums. Every year since 1998, they have toured extensively in the US and Europe, and more recently have started performing around Asia and in Japan too.

The group has performed in collaboration with many musicians including psychedelic originators Gong and Guru Guru, Simeon (Silver Apples), Nik Turner (Hawkwind), and the Occitanian trad singer Rosina de Peira. Japanese collaborators have included Afrirampo, Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins), Maso Yamazaki (Masonna), Seiichi Yamamoto (Boredoms), Jun Kuriyama (The Ox), and many others.

To begin with the group had a floating line-up with contributions from many members of the AMT Soul Collective. But as tours became more frequent, the group began to coalesce around a core touring line-up. Other bands were created with Acid Mothers Temple as part of their name (AMT & The Cosmic Inferno, AMT SWR, AMT & The Space Paranoid, Acid Mothers Gong, Acid Mothers Guru Guru, etc.), but AMT & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. has continued to function as the mothership and main lineage for all our activities.

In 2016, 21 years since the group's founding, there was a major shift in the line-up and "Next Generation" was added to the name. We now view the first 20 years as chapter one in our story, and we are now turning the page to start chapter two. The current touring line-up is: Makoto Kawabata (the sole original member), Hiroshi Higashi, Nani Satoshima, Wolf and Jyonson Tsu.

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. :
Kawabata Makoto : guitar, synthesizer, speed guru
Higashi Hiroshi : synthesizer, theremin, harp, noodle god
Jyonson Tsu : vocal, guitar, bouzouki, midnight whistler
Satoshima Nani : drums, another dimension
Wolf : bass, space & time



DJ Ujikaji

Last seen in 2015 presenting Singapore '60s pop yeh yeh and a-go-go music in France, DJ Ujikaji brings marginal sounds to the front and centre, throwing diverse elements together to see what sticks. And what breaks.
