Acid Mothers Sunday Vol 4

Ah, the holidays and a slight cold have kept me from doing much updating, but I am hoping to get a bunch of new stuff in the mail for review here (including two new Acid Mothers titles from Essence Music in Brazil, a new JPT Scare Band recording and some CDs from Suzuki Junzo).

But for now, here is Volume 4 of Acid Mothers Sunday. This time around we are going with the current 2007 version of Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso UFO. I am posting a track from their just-completed "Crystal Acid Motherly Love Tour" of Europe. I downloaded 3 shows, all with pretty decent to great sound quality and the band sounds as full on as they have ever been. Mostly sticking with the live staples "Dark Star Blues," "Pink Lady Lemonade" and "La Le Lo," they still totally bring new ideas and jams to these oft heard tracks. It is mind blowing how Kawabata still comes up with new freak out solos and jams, the "Pink Lady Lemonades" from this tour have had this awesome spiraling out of control delay jam that is like hearing trails. Anyways, here is a great version of "Dark Star Blues" (aka "Dark Stars in the Dazzling Sky") from November 22nd, 2007 in Basel, Switzerland. That heavy thud bass riff gets pulled apart and they kinda hit their most stoner rockness, totally hypnotizing and head bobbing for almost 20 minutes. This show also featured a fantastic "Pink Lady Lemonade->La Le Lo-> Pink Lady Lemonade" that clocked in at around 45 minutes! Unfortunately it was too huge to post for now, but hopefully in the near future. And remember, Acid Mothers Temple are coming back to the states in March 2008!
