One of the most celebrated Japanese Underground bands have returned! It may have taken over 12 years, but Kawabata Makoto, guitar guru and head honcho in Acid Mothers Temple, has finally decided to get his celebrated ‘psychedelic solid free attack group’ back together. Joining original Mainliner members Kawabata Makoto (motorpsycho guitar) and Koji Shimura (drums) is new recruit Kawabe Taigen of Bo Ningen (bass/vocals) and the trio still kick up one hell of a sonic racket as evidenced by the buzz around comeback album “Revelation Space”.
Don’t just take their word for it, though, hear for yourself:
“Wait!” you cry “aren’t Acid Mothers Temple playing the Trades two weeks later?”. Yes, you’re right. So, we are doing a special duo ticket offer.
Tickets for Mainliner are £10/£8 but you can buy a special duo ticket for admission to both gigs for £17/£15. Can’t say fairer than that, can you?
We are last train friendly and will run the stage times so you can comfortably catch the last trains to Manchester [at 23:28] and Leeds [at 00:04]
Here’s what the quality scribes have been saying about the comeback album:
“A terrific return to form” WIRE MAGAZINE
“Mainliner achieves a new kind of glory in the 21st century” ROCK-A-ROLLA
“This is where Mainliner lay everything on the line and prove what a brilliant band they are. Haunting, demonic, beautiful, loud, angry and confusing as hell all in one epic distorted package. Kawabata Makoto’s Mainliner are a visionary band and this is a visionary album” SLUDGELORD
“At once bracing and thrilling, it’s not long until your senses acclimatize and make sense of the seeming chaos” BEARDROCK.COM
