Over the past 25 years Makoto Kawabata has established himself as one of the most explosive and versatile guitarists / overall musicians in the world. He has toured and recorded tirelessly - solo, with collaborations and most notably his group Acid Mothers Temple. On the occasion of the newly released edition of Musica Transonic's debut LP, Kawabata writes about the group's formation in collaboration with Asahito Nanjo (High Rise, La Musica) and Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins, YBO2). His original recollections in Japanese can be found on his personal blog; they are here available as translated by Justin Simon. P.S.F. Records released Musica Transonic’s first album, Glorious Musica Transonic (English title: Musica Transonic) in 1995. A quarter of a century later, U.S. label Black Editions has reissued the album as a 2LP set.
