Release Info :
'Kokura' was recorded under dark skies and howling winds, deep in the bowels of a Japanese club as the country shook outside. Recorded last year on a short tour of Japan, 'Kokura' is the fruits of a live collaboration between Acid Mothers Temple / Mainliner main man KAWABATA MAKOTO, Argentinean guitarist ANLA COURTIS (Reynols) and Japanese underground musician ROKUGENKIN.
Based around hushed, mellow drones and hypnotic, yet restrained guitar wails, 'Kokura' is the first fruits of their labours and captures the sound of life beneath a hurricane.
