Melt-Banana is a band from Tokyo, Japan. Yako formed Melt-Banana around 1993 and since then they have been able to continue playing music with the support of great people, bands and fans all over the world. After playing around 1,300 shows as a "regular" four piece band they started playing shows as a duo in 2012 in order to evolve their sound. Yako sings and Agata plays a guitar. Their show at "The Nightmare before Christmas curated by Shellac" is their first show outside of Japan utilising this new format.
