[new] There were various issues that have prevented us from being able to update the website, but we've finally managed to solve them. We'll updating the discography and news section over the next few weeks. Thanks! (26.Jan.2012) :

[new] As of 2012 Tabata Mitsuru (Zeni Geva, AMT & The Cosmis Inferno, Leningrad Blues Machine, etc) has joined the new five-piece line-up ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O. as our guitarist. Higashi Hiroshi has moved to concentrate solely on synth. (26.Jan.2012)

[new] Kicking off on April 6, ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O will tour North America for around five weeks on our "Last Tour in US & Canada 2012" tour. More information on the dates will be announced in the "Live Schedule" section on the website very soon. There are rumours that some of the dates may see the return of Cotton Casino as a special guest. Since Cotton leapt on to stage for an unannounced appearance at the Baltimore show on our last North American tour (her first appearance with AMT in seven years!), these rumours may well have some validity.

[new] ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO U.F.O. will appear at the "Taiyo Daikansha Pre-Festival" event in Osaka organized by Pika. This will be the group's first concert in Osaka in three years. Rumours are circulating that this also be the group's last ever live show in Osaka. (26.Jan.2012)

[new] This year, Mani Neumeier (Guru Guru) will once again join us and tour Japan as part of the "Guru Guru Fest". There will be six groupings playing each night of the tour - Acid Mothers Guru Guru, Acid Mothers Temple SWR, Manitatsu, Mani Neumeier & Kawabata Makoto, Akaten, and Zoffy.

[new] At the group's Tokyo concert in August last year, Pika officially graduated from ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE COSMIC INFERNO. Her place has been taken Opera, the female drummer from the Kochi-based hardcore band Reveal. At her debut show in Kochi last December, as well as drums she also showed off her vocal and violin chops. Opera also released solo material under the name Tabineko. (26.Jan.2012)

[new] Kawabata Makoto (b & g) has formed a new unit with Tabata Mitsuru (g & b), Yamamoto Tatsuhisa (dr: Natsumen, Jim O'Rourke, etc) and Sakaguchi Mitsuhisa (kb: Alan Smithee's MAD UNIVERSE, Haizara, etc) called AHO ON DOLLARS. The group played its first show last December in Tokyo. The plans are to make this a permanent and regularly gigging unit. (26.Jan.2012)
