'Not content merely to be the rulers of start-stop noisecore, Tokyo's Melt-Banana have demonstrated that they are also the rulers of everything else played in the context of noisecore.
Their sound is "No wave gone gonzo". Guitars that sound like ray-guns and very unique piercing rapid fire female vocals. DNA leaves the galaxy...reconfigured, energised, set ablaze and shot back to the listener through some sonic particle accelerator.'
We've been working on bringing them to Cambridge since 2003 -- not long after we started booking touring artists -- and this is only their second UK tour since then. This is your chance to experience them in Cambridge and is seriously not to be missed.

Stop-start boy-girl cutie-killer six-piece with everything from cinematic waltzes to catchy electro disco and hard punk screaming riot grrl noise. A mix of Belle and Sebastian, Huggy Bear, and Sonic Youth with electronic twists and turns, and screamy art punk.
The band first captured the imagination of the late John Peel, notching up four Radio 1 sessions for the legendary DJ and scoring three top five hits in his Festive 50, including scooping the number 2 slot in his posthumous chart.
"In an era when almost everything is quite like something else, Bearsuit are not quite like anything." John Peel
"Louder than an explosion in a fireworks factory, ...often within the space of a single number, accordion, flute, cornet, violin, theremin and a number of percussion instruments are banged, blown, squeezed and thrummed. It’s an uproariously joyful noise." Artrocker
