Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. - 2004 - Hypnotic Liquid Machine From The Golden Utopia

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
2004
Hypnotic Liquid Machine From The Golden Utopia




01. Hypnotic Liquid Machine From The Golden Utopia
02.  Special Bonus Track by Captain Bret Hart & Terry Funk Zappa

Tsuyama Atsushi / monster bass, cosmic joker
Higashi Hiroshi / synthesizer, dancin' king
Koizumi Hajime / drums, sleeping monk
Maruichi / drums, percussion
Magic Aum Jiji / jew's harp, erotic underground
Kawabata Makoto / guitar, synthesizer, speed guru



The stuff I've heard from Acid Mothers Temple thus far has been a pretty mixed bag. And guess what, this particular bag is (in true Melting Paraiso spirit) rather mixed. Side one represents all that is bad about the group - no quality soloing or group interplay, just straightforward riffing buried underneath bloops, bleeps and whooshing. Nothing engaging here until the cacophony melts away into the sound of a solitary man twanging away on a Jew's harp. That part of the song is kinda lovely - call me a sentimental old fool but as the twanging persisted I looked to the stars and thought "life is pretty good". I got a Jew's harp for Christmas one year and couldn't work out how to play the bloody thing. It resided under my bed for eons and may still be there.

As soon as I heard the opening riff to the second side I grinned broadly. FUCK YEAH SURPRISE ZAPPA COVER! 'Captain Bret Hart' and 'Terry Funk Zappa' perform for us a cracking rendition of "Willie The Pimp". Man, I wish Acid Mothers Temple did more stuff like this - fiery soloing, tight interplay and just the right amount of wackiness. In what I can only assume to be a mimicking of MOI stage patter, we have a guy shouting stuff at random moments, because why the hell not? My favourite part is when he yells JACO PASTORIUSUUUUU before the bass solo.
