2018Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso UFO w/ Yoo Doo Right, Clang Quartet
AprilDoors 8:30, Show 9:30 - $12adv / $14
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 sinder 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, Mitsuko☆Tabata, Nani Satoshima, and Wolf.
Clang QuartetCLANG QUARTET is a performance by Scotty Irving (Me). Since 1997, the show has changed a lot over the years. Harsh Noise/Drums & Percussion/Performance Art. The show is an abstract journey of my walk in life without Jesus Christ, his death and resurrection, and then my life WITH Jesus as Lord and Savior. All the props I use during the show are also sound instruments, including any mask or other item. Any questions? ASK ME!
