Melt-Banana
Melt-Banana just doesn't quit. More than 20 years on, the Tokyo electro-spaz-pop unit still delivers maximum whiplash, with a sound that resembles a power drill or an industrial-strength blender more than any kind of traditional rock & roll. Here, the band—now pared down to the duo of vocalist Yako and guitarist Agata—supports its new Fetch LP as part of a formidable avant-happening, also featuring Brain Tentacles (the sax-drums duo of left-field metal masters Bruce Lamont and Dave Witte) and fearsome local noise-punk crew Vaz.
