Only have two of their albums, but both of them are quite amazing. I can definitely feel that they influenced Acid Mothers Temple a bit. They sort of implement the same philosophy that Supersilent does in naming tracks, putting more emphasis on the composition itself. One of their albums is just four tracks I through IV. And the other just has three tracks noting the time the composition began and when it ended.

The Taj Mahal Travellers (also given variously as Taj Mahal Travelers, Taj-Mahal Travellers, etc.) were a Japanese experimental music ensemble founded in 1969 by former Group Ongaku leader and Fluxus member Takehisa Kosugi. The rest of the group were several years younger than Kosugi, and were all inspired by the spirit of the day. They chose mainly to perform their music out of doors, often on beaches and hilltops, creating spontaneously improvised drones (compare with Dronology), often using standard musical instruments, albeit in unconventional ways (e.g., a bowed double bass placed flat on its back). The group's sound was heavily reliant on electronic processing, particularly delay effects. There is an extensive 12-page biography of Taj Mahal Travellers in Japrocksampler (Bloomsbury 2007), written by Julian Cope.
