Power House of Holy Cover art

To complement their 2006 USA Tour, Acid Mothers Temple released Power House of Holy as their tour CD. This CD contains two live tracks recorded in 2004, “Dark Stars” and “Pink Lady Lemonade.” “Dark Stars” is a live recording of the last track on Have You Seen the Other Side of the Sky? It is a bit more raucous than the studio version, but it does capture the band at its cosmic best. You can easily visualize the crowd bobbing and weaving to the rhythms and improvisations. Also, it is much shorter (about 14 minutes) than the studio version. The second track, “Pink Lady Lemonade” is 25 minutes of blissed-out Krautrock-inspired cyclic rhythm guitar, interweaving bass, electronics, and cosmic lead guitar. This new AMT CD is excellent and a good place to start exploring this interesting and prolific band.
