Tabata Mitsuru is a legendary figure in the Japanese underground – founder member of Boredoms, founder member of ZENI GEVA (with KK NULL) and ex-10 year member of Acid Mothers Temple Official. Now he joins with non-stop touring psych guitarist Junzo Suzuki to perform their original acid/psych folk/rock tunes.
After an overseas support tour of Acid Mothers temple, Junzo has been touring Europe, UK, US and Japan almost relentlessly for well over a decade. He has been released on vinyl in each of these regions, on labels such as Nod and Smile Records and Eye Vibe , as well as the legendary PSF Records in Japan.
Together Junzo and Tabata are 20 Guilders, master craftsmen of electric psych-folk. Widely schooled in the genre, each boasting massive collections of original pressing vinyl from the late 60s and early 70s and on.
