Profile
Back around 1995, guitarist Makoto Kawabata, together with a collective of like-minded musicians, founded this wacko noisy psych band from Japan. Many variations of the name have been used, such as Acid Mothers Temple and the Melting Paraiso UFO, Acid Mothers Temple and the Cosmic Inferno, and so on. They have also collaborated with a number of other artists, usually using a new name combining Acid Mothers with the collaborator's name.
