New work:Karma Obscura By Astro Dreams – Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O.
称为「魂之共同体」以结他手河端一为中心的Acid Mothers Temple,是一个迷幻公社,是一个地下音乐厂牌,也是一支庞大的迷幻太空摇滚乐团,以及一个以声响展现的大宇宙曼荼罗。
Acid Mothers Temple,我国之生物文化历史学家中译为「酸母寺」,乃公元後,後人类纪以前其中一个最扑溯迷离的古文明建筑。相对於西藏拉萨布达拉宫 (Potala) 的确实存在,Acid Mothers Temple的神秘性就正如阿兰特斯提 (Atlantis),现存虽有无数文献古籍记载,但至今仍无法确定其真正遗址及其真实性。甚至有超心理学者 (Transpersonal Psychologist) 认为,所谓「酸母寺」只不过是部分小数次文化族群面对末世纪来临而产生的集体无意识投射 (Unconscious Projection)。
据文献记载,Acid Mothers Temple位於旧日本,介乎大阪与东京之间的名古屋山区地带。据说Acid Mothers Temple乃融会西藏佛教之曼荼罗 (Mandala) 的神秘几何设计建筑而成,并配合以演变自炼金术 (Alchemy) 的环境声学设计,造成一个通往大宇宙意识界的神秘通道。为这个古老传说所吸引,自後人类纪以後便有过不少深海探索队前往旧日本的陆沉海域进行搜索,意图揭开这门古宗教科学之谜。

A freak-out group for the 21st century founded in 1995 by members of the Acid Mothers Temple soul-collective. Led by Kawabata Makoto.
Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. is a Japanese psychedelic band, the core of which formed in 1995. The band is led by guitarist Kawabata Makoto  and early in their career featured many musicians, but by 2004 the line-up had coalesced with only a few core members and frequent guest vocalists.
The band has released albums frequently on a number of international record labels as well as the Acid Mothers Temple family record label, which was established in 1998 to document the activities of the whole collective.
Kawabata initially formed Acid Mothers Temple (originally “Acid Mother’s Temple”)[2]  with the intention of creating “extreme trip music” by editing and dubbing previous recordings, being influenced by progressive rock, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and krautrock.[3]  Kawabata, along with Koizumi Hajime, Suhara Keizo, and Cotton Casino formed the original Acid Mother’s Temple lineup as a group; however, the first recordings released were Kawabata’s own mixes and overdubs.[3]  The band released two self-titled tapes on their eponymous label in 1997 before dropping the apostrophe from their name. They soon released their first self-titled album (see Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O.).The group began to tour overseas in 1998.
The band continued to tour and record, adding to the lineup drummer Ichiraku Yoshimitsu and guitarist Higashi Hiroshi. Several non-Acid Mothers shootoff bands formed, including Floating Flower, Nishinihon, and Tsurbami,[4] while The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. played at sold-out shows and festivals all over North America, Japan, and Europe in the early 2000s. In 2002, the band released four albums and two EPs in a three-month span while touring the United States, the United Kingdom, and Ireland, including South by Southwest in Austin, being selected as one of the top three groups performing.
