A hallucinatory soundtrack to mystical western, Acid Witch Mountain, the debut album from Masters, summons sharp guitars, bright brass and atypical percussions in an instrumental ritual between rock and experimentation. The project was conceived by London based artists and former Agaskodo Teliverek members Christos Fanaras and M.K. Hauser aka Miklos Kemecsi. It is now due to be released in April 2014 in the form of a double vinyl album as a co-release between Adaadat and Ego Twister.
Miklos Kemecsi is of Hungarian and Swedish descent, he formed art rock outfit Agaskodo Teliverek in 2005. They went on to release two albums and a seven inch on Adaadat and extensively toured the UK and Europe sharing the stage with acts like Les Georges Leningrad, Trencher, DAT Politics, Kap Bambino, J.G. Thirlwell, Max Tundra and Lightning Bolt, culminating in a performance supporting Siouxsie Sioux at the BBC Electric Proms in 2007.
Christos Fanaras originally from Greece has been performing under the name Jack Shirt since 2006 and has recorded and released seven solo CDR albums on his own imprint Down Is Up. He also played bass guitar in Agaskodo Teliverek, bass and synth in Mothlite, drums in hypnagogic anti-band Temper Temper and is currently a member of Moon Ra.
Acid Witch Mountain features guest appearances from Thomas Fuglesang (Gum Takes Tooth), Simon Balthazar and Leon Beckingham (Fanfarlo), Joel Cahen (Newtoy), Kenichi Iwasa (Blood Music/Chrome Hoof), David Aird (Vindicatrix), Achilleas A (The Dandy Warhols) and Daniel Lea (Golden Hum).
