Last night, Japan's Acid Mothers Temple performed at Atlanta's Drunken Unicorn, and man, were they loud. My ears are still ringing.
Denver's Tjutjuna (the "t's" are silent) opened.
I forgot to bring my camera, so all that I have to show are my crappy cell-phone pics.
Tjutjuna are an experimental, instrumental psych-rock band. They made good use of a theremin, and it's not too many quartets that you see that have two drummers - fully half the band were drummers. Although the twin drums provided a propulsive rhythm, the first 30 minutes of their set was marred by the mix which drowned the guitar behind the rhythm section. It wasn't until guitarist Brian Marcus finally plugged his guitar into another amp that it could be heard over the house PA system, which improved things considerably. Here's a sample from their first album, Fire Talk.
As noted above, headliners Acid Mothers Temple were loud. In all, they played a full, 90-minute set and although they didn't play an encore, I don't think anybody left feeling anything less than satisfied.
