Formed in 1995 by Makoto Kawabata at the same time as the Acid Mothers Temple Soul
Collective. The group released its debut album in 1997 on PSF Records (Japan), and it was
selected as one of the year’s best albums in the The Wire magazine (UK). In 1998 the group
played their first tours of the US and Europe. Since then the group has released a huge
number of albums on labels from many different countries. As of 2017, the group has
released around 80 albums. Every year since 1998, they have toured extensively in the US
and Europe, and more recently have started performing around Asia and in Japan too. 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 singer 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, AMT &
Infinity Rising Zero, Acid Mothers Gong, Acid Mothers Guru Guru, Acid Moon Temple,
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, twenty one 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 twenty years as
chapter one in our story, and we are now turning the page to start chapter two. The group
played more than 100 shows in each year, toured in Europe, North America, South America,
Oceania and Asia, also Japan. They also played many festivals (Glastonbury Festival in UK,
Levitation in US and France, Rock In Opposition in France, Standon Calling in UK, Kuala
Lumpur Experimental Film, Video & Music Festival in Malaysia, LUC fest 貴人散步音樂節 in
Taiwan, etc).
During pandemic, they launched their official Bandcamp, have released more than 60 albums
(including many unreleased materials), and have toured in Japan in each year. And they played
the streaming festival “Levitation Sessions”. They organized “Acid Mothers Olympic 2021”
against “Tokyo Olympics 2021”, they originated and played a new style of “music sports”.
Finally the group went to the first European tour in Autumn 2022 and North American tour
in Spring and Autumn 2023, after pandemic. 2024, the group will tour in Europe in Spring and
North America in Autumn.
The current touring line-up is: Kawabata Makoto, Higashi Hiroshi, Satoshima Nani,
Sawano Shozo and Jyonson Tsu since 2022.
