Acid Mothers Temple Family - Do Whatever You Want, Don't Do Whatever You Don't Want

This is a mega-post! Over 3 hours of psychedelic freak-outs from the modern masters of the (free) form. This is a great compilation that's unfortunately now out of print. It came out on the Earworm label back in 2005 then quickly disappeared. Disc one contains an hour long version of Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. live favourite Pink Lady Lemonade (You're So Sweet)...and what a sweet treat it is.
Here's a little taste of the electrik kool aid:

Spread across the other two cd's you get a fantastically varied selection of modern psych from Japan, France and the USA. Fursaxa provides a nice modernist madrigal, while we get plenty of the Acid Mother's hallucinogenic mix of prime Blue Cheer-esque riffing, drones, cosmic exploration. While AMT aren't as raw and noisy as many of the Japanese psychedelic underground bands (like High Rise, LSD March, White Heaven, Marble Sheep, or earlier bands like Les Rallizes Desnudes), their blend of beautiful melody and heavy, freaked out noise is always worth hearing. However, some of my favourite stuff on these discs comes in the form of the strange little folky numbers that pepper this fabulous compilation.
