What can we say about this combination of factos? Acid
Mothers Temple play Black Sabbath. Words are hard to find to describe this gig.
To have Japan’s most out there combo perform Birmingham’s sixties bleak grim
sounds? The matter of fact is, it’s a wonderful proposition and one I wouldn’t
want to miss.
Acid Mothers Temple & Space Paranoid enter onstage and
as the bass drum pounds a metronomic beat, a distorted heavy guitar wail erupts
and everyone instantly recognizes Iron Man. Immediately you’re pulled into
familiar territory and you turn yourselfo into a headbanging Geroge Romero
zombie.
The thing is Acid Mothers Temple & Space Paranoid aren’t
Black Sabbath. They are who they are and there’s a breath of fresh air pumped
into the classic Sab songs. Acid Mothers Temple & Space Paranoid simplly
stamp their custombrand of psyched out space rock and familiar songs become
unexpected blasts of energy that make you travel like never before. Sabbath
songs go cosmic and achieve lift off.
As we are treated to Sweet Leaf, you witness Acid Mothers
Temple & Space Paranoid finding a groove not always there with the Japanese
psychsters more straight ahead ful throttle sonic attacks. Ritchie Blackmore on
acid’s influence on Makoto Kawabata’s guitar is for anyone who cares to
observe. So much that he breaks a string on The Wizard and he has to change
said string, allowing a harmonica, bass and drums power trio to emerge in front
of us.
Right now my thoughts were ‘What song will they play next?
Will they play that song? How would a certain song sound like after an Acid
Mothers Temple & Space Paranoid treatment?’. Such song I was anticipating
was the song Black Sabbath. When it came time for them to play it, ‘Lucifer is
coming’ was announced and the real sabbath had begun. Slow, heavy and extended,
a solo halfway the heavier main riff was an idea Tony Iommi would never have
conceived and it just works so well. They segued the song with a Cosmic Inferno
original and then it was time for some more Sabbath!
Acid Mothers Temple & Space Paranoid only went as
further as ‘Vol.4’ for material to be presented on this Iberian tour and
eventually they had to play Paranoid. Paranoid was deliered with such speed and
frenzy that not even all the cocaine Ozzy took in the seventies could provide
such an effect on the audience.

Black Sabbath never had the cosmic awakening of acid to make
their songs sound as stelar as this. At the same time, could Acid Mothers
Temple & Space Paranoid achieve such grooviness and concrete earthiness of
a sixties Birmingham jazz/blues band gone heavy? This was one cosmic sabbath
and all the universal demons came to life via these four Japanese shamans.
