Makoto Kawabata re: pop music

Via V. Vale’s RE/Search Newsletter #127, which features an interview with Makoto Kawabata of Acid Mother’s Temple

 I do like some pop music. I like Abba a lot. They are the best. No one in the future will be able to play pop music better than Abba. So, I don’t need any more pop music than that.

VS: ABBA is the pinnacle of pop?

MK: Yes, they overdub all the instruments, and overdubbed the vocals and they changed the tape speed a little bit, that’s how they got that amazing sound.
