Reliably informed

If you know about Acid Mothers Temple, chances are this gig has been on your radar for a while now. If not, chances are you’ll hear their howling psychedelic sounds floating through Shieldfield on Wednesday 12th October anyway, as the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. lands at the Star & Shadow Cinema.

The band formed in Japan in the mid-90s by guitarist Kawabata Makoto have been making live and studio albums at an alarming rate ever since, a constellation of members and collaborative artists adding sound under a litany of variegated monikers. The current iteration of AMT are meandering their way through the UK this October, playing venues as esoteric as the band themselves, and the Star & Shadow will no doubt be the ideal place to wade into their celestial presence. With influences spanning the psychedelic rainbow from prog rock, noise music, Krautrock and musique concrète, expect an evening of intense, sky-splitting noise that’ll leave your head full of cotton wool and your brain in multicoloured pools at your feet.

Support comes from North East trio The Type Five, whose psychedelic power rock makes them a great addition.

Acid Mothers Temple and The Type Five play Star & Shadow Cinema, Newcastle on Wednesday 12th October.
