The 3 DIY CSC FUNK BAND releases now on the FMA!

3 oddball CSC Funk Band releases on the internet for the first time!

"Live at Zebulon" is our first tape. 4 pretty tight performances. Repetition Repetition Repetition.

"Racket" is a compilation of some one off live jams. A little looser.

"Free" is a mess. I'm not even sure it's listenable but it sure is fun.

Album Feature: Acid Mothers Temple

Acid Mothers Temple performs at WFMU's Monty Hall.

Legendary Japanese ensemble Acid Mothers Temple played at WFMU's Monty Hall earlier this year and generously shared their music with the Free Music Archive. Acid Mothers Temple Soul Collective has been in existence for more than twenty years, touring the world in various forms. Their bandleader, Kawabata Makoto, has been at the heart of the project from the beginning.

Though we love sharing audio from performances (you can stream or download below, or visit the artist page on FMA), this one is also worth watching, if you have time. We've embedded it below for your psychedelic-freakout-enjoyment, courtesy of WFMU:

A freak-out group for the 21st century was founded in 1995 by members of the Acid Mothers Temple soul-collective and led by Kawabata Makoto.

This is their Monty Hall Performance from April 24, 2017.
