Acid Mothers Temple + Stearica + Gum Takes Tooth

Acid Mothers Temple

Japanese psychedelic band founded in 1995 by members of the Acid Mothers Temple soul-collective. 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 4 core members and frequent vocal guests.

The band have a reputation for phenomenal live shows and releasing frequent albums 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.

Stearica

During the past ten years Stearica have been touring around Europe with legends of the independent scene such as Nomeansno, GirlsAgainstBoys, Damo Suzuki, The Ex, Karate, Acid Mothers Temple and Tarentel. 
A rare story for an Italian band, made of international collaborations with artists like Dälek (Ipecac), Amy Denio (Fred Frith, Derek Bailey), Jessica Lurie (Bill Frisell, Nels Cline), Nick Storring (Damo Suzuki network, Picastro).

Gum Takes Tooth

A thunderous rampage of noise tempered with an aptitude for precise rhythms and splintered melody. Gum Takes Tooth is a single headed beast with two bodies: a duo of Thomas Fuglesang on live acoustic drums, physcially wired into home grown electronic instruments, bare circuit boards, tweaked, moulded and mangled in real-time by Jussi Brightmore.

Nisennenmondai (Smalltown Supersound / Japan)
Imagine an insane birthday party with Sun City Girls, Keiji Haino and Mika Miko all invited, things are gonna go volcanic, and that’s where Nisennenmondai come in! Of all the noisy girl groups of Kansai, Tokyo’s Nisennenmondai – their name translates as ‘Year 2000 problem’, a reference to the millenial computer bug – honestly! – are at once the most intense and hypnotic band to run out of the scene. Himeno Sayaka (drums), Zaikawa Yuri (bass) and Takada Masako (guitar) met, of all places, at the same after school music club at university in Tokyo and quickly jumped into band formation, self-releasing two EPs with short shrift before touring Japan alongside the likes of Death Sentence: Panda!, OOIOO, Lightning Bolt, Hella, Oshiri Penpenz, and Afrirampo. Their pulsing rhythm section and metallic overtoned guitar sound something like a heathen and tranced-out amalgamation of Boredoms, Neu!, Ruins and Leopard Leg – apt comparisons considering their group ensemble ethic and circular pattern performance setup. Nisennenmondai are as thrilling as they convulsive. Now don’t forget to blow out the candles!

Einstellung
 
Einstellung’s sound is one of mesmerising power and hypnotic beauty. They are part krautrock and part psychedelic indie noise-pop – with a touch of the heavy metal heritage of Birmingham, their home city. Einstellung’s “powerkraut” sound is the product of a meeting of minds between guitarists Andy Smart & Andrew Parker (ex Sally/Katastrophy Wife) with Si Rider (ex Grover) drums and Steve Hough (ex Cable Regime/Godflesh) on bass.
 
Einstellung’s appeal is an unhurried approach and use of tension/release. Songs teeter then finally explode into electric walls of overdrive. Despite a lack of vocals Einstellung’s shows are captivating and extremely loud. The band clearly relishes the noise they produce together, their enthusiasm and energy cascades from the stage.  Live shows are infrequent – catch them at every available opportunity.
