The groupreleased its debut album in 1997 on PSF Records (Japan), and it was selected as one of the year's best albums inthe The Wire magazine (UK). In 1998 the group played their first tours of the US and Europe. Since then the grouphas released a huge number of albums on labels from many different countries. As of 2017, the group hasreleased around 80 albums. Every year since 1998, they have toured extensively in the US and Europe, and morerecently have started performing around Asia and in Japan too. The group has performed in collaboration with many musicians including psychedelic originators Gong and GuruGuru, Simeon (Silver Apples), Nik Turner (Hawkwind), and the Occitanian trad sinder Rosina de Peira. Japanesecollaborators have included Afrirampo, Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins), Maso Yamazaki (Masonna), Seiichi Yamamoto(Boredoms), Jun Kuriyama (The Ox), and many others.To begin with the group had a floating line-up with contributions from many members of the AMT Soul Collective.But as tours became more frequent, the group began to coalesce around a core touring line-up. Other bands werecreated with Acid Mothers Temple as part of their name (AMT & The Cosmic Inferno, AMT SWR, AMT & TheSpace Paranoid, Acid Mothers Gong, Acid Mothers Guru Guru, etc.), but AMT & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. hascontinued to function as the mothership and main lineage for all our activities.In 2016, 21 years since the group's founding, there was a major shift in the line-up and "Next Generation" wasadded to the name. We now view the first 20 years as chapter one in our story, and we are now turning the page tostart chapter two. The current touring line-up is: Makoto Kawabata (the sole original member), Hiroshi Higashi,Mitsuko☆Tabata, Nani Satoshima, and Wolf.
