welcome to japanese new music festival

I just want to lick something drenched in acid. That’s twice I’ve seen Acid Mothers Temple and my immediate response has been to be quite certain I’m having a cosmic acid flashback, instantly followed by an uncontrollable urge to suck on a tab of my absolutely favourite drug.

Compared to the refined, sit-down concert of Japanese New Music Festival in Zürich, last night’s performance at Windflower was a riot, stadium rock hysteria in a lounge-room bar. Actually they should play in a stadium with 50 foot seismic rumble amp stacks. And we got photos taken with them. How much does that make me a rock slut groupie?
