Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. - Absolutely Freak Out (Zap Your Mind!!) (2001)
Psych for perverts, or tasteful noise. Star Child vs Third Bad Stone and Supernatural Infinite Space - Waikiki Easy Meat are enjoyably washy, noisy, and dreamy. Grapefruit March - Virgin UFO - Let's Have A Ball - Pagan Nova is the 60s avant-garde + Suicide + noise. It's retarded. Stone Stoner finds something good every now and again as weird folk gets caught up in noisy leftovers and Makoto Kawabata's guitar work soars like Neil Young's does. The Incipient Light of the Echoes shows they didn't get Terry Riley completely out of their system with In C. Minimalism filtered through noise and drugs. Actually pretty awesome. Magic Aum Rock - Mercurial Megatronic Meninx reminds of Boredoms' Super Ae in that it's a constantly driving and messy noise workout. There seems to be no feel-good trance intention, however. Children of the Drab - Surfin' Paris Texas - Virgin UFO Feedback is Kawabata being Kawabata again... starts doing guitar freakouts even when the rest of the band can't keep up. Casually awesome. The Kiss That Took a Trip - Magic Aum Rock Again - Love is Overborne - Fly High is a nice little Yoko Ono-ish excursion (I like Yoko's voice) and a heavy psych excursion and the guitars at the end are nice. Psych for perverts.
