Acid Mothers Sunday vol 23: Take Up Thy Kaleidoscope (excerpt)

For this this Acid Mothers Sunday, we go back to the originals, Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. and an excerpt of the bonus track to the should-be-in-this-week double vinyl version of Are We Experimental? on Prophase Music. "Take Up Thy Kaleidoscope" clocks in at 20 minutes or so, taking up one side of the double vinyl reissue (mastered for vinyl by Yoshida Tatsuya).

This is the first five minutes, a slow building, bluesy (for AMT) jam that gets more and more insane as the track goes on. Lots of panning and craziness and even some references to past AMT classics near the end. Kind of the opposite of a lot of the proper album (which featured shorter songs and more music concrete and less actual jamming), making it a great edition to the regular CD. Once again, they save some of their best stuff for vinyl only bonus tracks, it seems.

The double LP gatefold colored vinyl deal will be ready for the AMT show at SXSW so you can get it there (and AMT will have it on their USA/Canda 2010 Tour). As soon as a purchase link goes up on the Prophase site I will post it (here). 500 of these pressed and pretty much going insanely fast, so get 'em while you can. Dig some of the color schemes below:

(sorry for the goofy song naming by the way)

UPDATE: I received my copies this week and they look amazing. The green/orange record is the most psychedelic looking slab of vinyl I have ever seen. UNREAL!!! Anyways, you can now buy one via Prophase, these are going super fast so get on board now!

UPDATE II: A reader asked about the colored vinyl counts, 500 total pressed:
150 on Blue
150 on Green
200 on Luscious Purple
