Acid Mothers Temple – Blue Velvet Blues

This is a Japanese psychedelic band. Their tour of China was cancelled in 2014, as government officials there determined the music to be “pornographic and occult.”

Chinese president Xi Jinping has stated the arts should “embody socialist core values,” and consequently, some popular music festivals in China have recently been cancelled.
