Japanese New Music Festival: Seikazoku, Acid Mothers Temple SWR, Shrinp Wark, Zoffy, Ruins Alone, RonRuins, Akaten, Zubi Zuba X – Tonic $15

Depending on who you are, this is either the ultimate dream or nightmare bill. Since I’m writing this I guess you can imagine where I stand on this collection of eight of the more interesting acts from one of the world’s finest underground music scenes. The central stars here are the exciting and prolific Tatsuya Yoshida and the tripped-out Acid Mothers Temple. Seikazoku is Yoshida with Temple priests Tsuyama Atsushi and Kawabata Makoto. Five more of the bands, Ruins Alone, RonRuins, Ataken, Zubi Zuba X, and Shrinp War, also feature Yoshida as the dizzying and masterful drum eye of the hurricane. Acid Mothers Temple, and another of their many side projects, Zoffy, will bring the hallucinogenic electrocution. Is there anything here that you wouldn’t come out for by itself?
