Album Review

When hearing this avant rock band, it's hard to avoid comparisons with other Japanese underground groups, as Melt-Banana deals in a similar jump-cut noise rock extravagance in the vein of the Boredoms, Ruins, and Zeni Geva. Incidentally, the album consists of 24 stabs of screeching playful noise collage and extraordinarily agile progressive rock-punk fusion. The album was produced by Zeni Geva/Yona Kit guitarist K.K. Null in Chicago in 1994 with engineer Steve Albini. Those two names should be endorsement enough for fans of avant rock and underground noise.
