I've just started listening to them and was really happy when I found out that they would be playing in london this week! 

Is anyone else planning to go?  I don't know anyone who is and it's always more fun with other people...

alex_ex
They play few shows in Japan in December as "MELT-BANANA Lite" (according to the official site http://www1.parkcity.ne.jp/mltbanan/). Anybody knows what does it mean? Any special lineup/setlist changes?

melt-banana über alles! [03 Jun 2008|07:39pm]

[ mood | good ]

I saw them live at Alte Feuerwache in Mannheim, Germany this Sunday!
Fantastic! They are on top form ;-)! Played lots of stuff from "Cell-Scape" and "Bambi's Dilemma". Intro music was "Who killed Bamby" by Sex Pistols :D!!! And there was a cover version on encore - "Monkey man" by The Specials.

I absoletely definitely recommend to everyone who has an opportunity to see them live on this tour! I know no other good original band which is on such a top form now. With the words of Wesley Willis - "Feel the power of Rock-n-Roll"!!! This japanese band ROCKS!

I can't stop listening to Disposable Weathercock. It's been on auto-repeat on my iPod for days.

Anyone else get a Melt Banana song in their head and they can't let it go for days on end? It happens to me often. The last one was Lost Parts Stinging Me So Cold.

I need them to tour to NYC again.

Does anyone know the Melt Banana support in Glasgow on the 12th November?

Also.. anyone else spotted The Locust are playing on the 27th in Glasgow. What a month...!

Hi.
I just had a few questions about some songs I know from live shows, but can't place otherwise.
One, does anybody know the name of the theme to Perfect Hair Forever? They played it and referred to it as something that sounded something like "here cat"

Also, one of the short songs they play, starts out with fairly clean guitar (wah, actually) and clean lyrics for a few moments, then it just goes crazy for a few more moments. She said something like "is a hero" or something like that beforehand. Any ideas?

It's definitely not His Name Is Mickey, So Unfilial Rule, Some Kind Of ID, Screw Loose, We Love Choco Pa, Zoo No Vacancy, Type B For Me, First Defy, Scrubber, Flip And Hit.


Oh by the way, when I saw them in Rochester, I was no more than 1 ft away from Yasuko at any point in time. It was amazing.
