Melt-Banana / Lefty Dog (Run Caper Run) by Iroha

Purple TV presents the exciting new release from legendary Japanese noise-rock band Melt-Banana. Taken from their latest album Fetch, the band’s first album of new material in six years, the duo (made up of Yako on vocals and Agata on guitar and effects) have liberated themselves of a human rhythm section and are making a noise as powerful and frantic as ever – from guitarist Agata showcasing his mastery of guitar effects and extended technique to Yako who belts out her well-known high-pitched screams. Not only championed by the BBC’s DJ John Peel during his life-time, but Melt-Banana have in the past ten years 20 years toured with the likes of Mr. Bungle, Melvins, Fantomas, and Tool.

Melt-Banana have embarked on a 13 date UK tour, their first as a two-piece and their first UK tour since 2010. See tour dates here for more information.
