Kawabata Makoto Wikipedia
Kawabata Makoto (河端 一) is a Japanese musician and founding member of the band Acid Mothers Temple.
Kawabata is chiefly famous for his leadership of Acid Mothers Temple and its variants; however, he has also played in many other bands since the start of his career in the late 1970s. Some of these bands are:Baroque Bordello
Mothers of Invasion
In addition to the many records recorded with bands, Kawabata Makoto has an extensive solo discography. Major releases are:The 'Private Tapes' series (1999–2004)
I'm in Your Inner Most (2001)
Hosanna Mantra (2007)
We're one-sided lovers each other's (2013- Bam Balam.records)
In 2000, Kawabata wrote "Music, for me, is neither something that I create, nor a form of self-expression. All kinds of sounds exist everywhere around us, and my performances solely consist of picking up these sounds, like a radio tuner, and playing them so that people can hear them."
"When I was a kid, I really loved Ritchie Blackmore - not so much the guitar style, just I liked his look, atmosphere, on the stage. Always, he stood on this side [right], also the stratocaster, and black clothes, and very aggressive [playing]. I really loved this image, so I wear just black. Also - easy to co-ordinate!"
