Melt-Banana -- Kansas City, MO -- October 9th, 2011

Such a fun show! Melt-Banana is a legendary band and one of the pioneers for current noise rock/punk/grindcore. Seriously, if you are serious about any of those genre's, you need to know Melt-Banana.


This was the most sound I've ever heard a four-piece band make. I was most impressed by the guitarist, Ichirou. He had a ton of pedals, and each one just produced more and more noises from his amps. At points he would glitch his guitar to make it sound like it was on the verge of exploding. Totally awesome. Another great thing he did was slowly building up his guitar riffs to their climax and right as soon as he hit that note, his rig overloaded and just blasted feedback for a split second before launching back into the song. Absolutely amazing. Yasuko is also a very unique vocalist but works extremely well with Melt-Banana's crazy song structure! The bass player was also super tiny but one of the fastest bass players I've seen! I know they don't have a permanent drummer, but it amazes me that there must be multiple people who can drum Melt-Banana tracks. That takes some skills. But yeah, crazy show. Tons of moshing and everyone was having a great time. We got an encore too, which I don't think was planned because they were turning on the lights. So much fun!

I can't wait to see them at the Echo at the end of next month. That sucks Retox wasn't at your date because they're hoping on this tour in a few weeks.

This band seems very familiar...

Did they by chance open for Tool about 6 years ago?

Yes, they did! I've tried to find video of them opening for that tour to see the blockheaded Tool fans hating on them, but I couldn't find anything.
