Acid Mothers Temple - surely the most obvious fit of a band to play at the Cube? A collective led by Kawabata Makoto, there are currently around 30 members, famous and unknown, musicians, artists, dancers, farmers etc. The Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. group is just one part of the collective's activities; in order to follow and document their multifarious activities, the Acid Mothers Temple family record label was set up in 1998. While their sound is essentially psychedelic rock, they are influenced by a range of artists and concepts such as Terry Riley (their version of 'In C' is a vital part of its life) and folk music (Kawabata Makoto - making a return visit to the Cube - release solo work of a quieter bent), with their last album Son of a Bitches Brew taking its inspiration from Miles Davis himself. With over 50 records released, this is a band that doesn't stop to relax and rest on their laurels. Expect to see the band embrace the ethos of the Cube Cinema, and see their vision fully realised.
Support comes from Saddar Bazaar, who create create an amazing instrumental blend of percussion, sitars, slide guitar, sitars and sitars, plus Heavy Heads DJs in the bar.
