As the title suggests, “Black Mass Rising” is a new dark and psychedelic film inspired by the likes of Kenneth Anger. It features music from Kawabata Makoto, Master Musicians of Bukake, Bobby Beausoleil (who scored “Lucifer Rising”), Mater Suspiria Vision, Burial Hex and Sylvester Anfang II among many other. Made by the mysterious Shazzula, it’s been released on DVD in a limited edition of 666. Check out this preview:

“Om Sweet Home We Are Shining Stars From Darkside” is the debut album from Acid Mothers main man kawabata Makoto and former Afrirampo lady Pikachu (I don’t know why she has changed the spelling or was I just getting wrong all the time previously?).

Anyway, the album is coming out as a limited edition CD of 1000 for the world in a minature vinyl style card gatefold sleeve.

They’ve also lined up a vinyl release for the amazing Kim Doo Soo “Evening River” album, the CD on PSF from earlier this year was picked by Hong Kong record shop Other Musick in their top 5 for our fifth podcast.

Are you aware of the internet archive? Thanks to them I was able to find a copy of the old version of this website and put all the old articles over on the features page. They also store non-copyright media. You can download films that have have expired or lapsed copyright such as “Nosferatu” or “Night of the Living Dead”. They also have a live music archive where you can access for free live recordings of artists who don’t mind their shows being distributed in this way.

Well, I thought it was of particular note that they have a video of a Dublin gig played by Damo Suzuki [ex-Can] and Kawabata Makoto of Acid Mothers Temple along with some local collaborators. You can download it from:
