Mason Jones & Makoto Kawabata - Within A Golden Moment


"Avant-garde ambient noise, with San Francisco's Mason Jones on guitar drone and Makoto Kawabata on violin."

Within A Golden Moment

Mason is a legend...quite possibly AMT's gateway drug that got them across to America in the first place. If you are in any doubt as to the respect he is held in by AMT...check the number of "thanks to Mason Jones" comments in the small print of your AMT releases!'s a little live thing with Mason and Kawabata:

Thanks for the post and the kind words! I first met Kawabata when I released the debut Mainliner album and set up shows for them over here, around the time he released the first AMT cassette. He's a fantastic guy and an incredibly hard worker...
