Born to Be Wild in the USA 2000

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Originally sold only at gigs, Born to Be Wild in the USA was recorded during the 2000 tour at Graceland (Seattle), the Fireside Bowl (Chicago), and the Up Stage (Philadelphia). It's a full-on AMT performance that lasts only a little over 40 minutes, but punters get their money's worth in spades. It's an assemblage of mostly well-known Acid Mothers Temple jams save for "Acid Tokion 2000," that opens the set. Kawabata Makoto and company let it rip here, allowing the full-on intensity of the band to come out of the starting gate. It's freak-out, overdriven rock that never falters or slows until it exhausts itself. "La Novia," given a different reading entirely than the studio ...

It's a full-on AMT performance that lasts only a little over 40 minutes, but punters get their money's worth in spades. It's an assemblage of mostly well-known Acid Mothers Temple jams save for "Acid Tokion 2000," that opens the set. Kawabata Makoto and company let it rip here, allowing the full-on intensity of the band to come out of the starting gate. It's freak-out, overdriven rock that never falters or slows until it exhausts itself. "La Novia," given a different reading entirely than the studio version, is loaded with plodding distortion and dreamy, droning soundscapes (some of it courtesy of a somewhat dodgy recording quality which actually adds to the tune), and then opens directly onto a spacy, slow entryway toward "Pink Lady Lemonade," an ambient tune that evolves into a glorious psychedelic blissout that Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine would kill to have constructed back in the day. "Speed Guru" -- Makoto's theme song -- goes back into the red for another nine minutes or so, allowing all of his power as an improvising lead guitarist to pour out of the box, laden with distortion, feedback, and wasted speaker low-tech. The set closes with a very brief little solo guitar piece called "Gods Bless A.M.T," and a load of crowd applause. Again, the sound isn't the best but it hardly matters as this set more than captures the AMT live experience beautifully. Consider it one of those officially released bootlegs.
