Melt Banana are a Japanese band. I don't know how to describe them because I don't think they fit into a category. It's sort of a speed punk thing but that doesn't really begin to describe it. The female singer's voice is sort of a rythmic yelping/screeching thing. It's sort of like having an electric toothbursh in your ear, but in a good way.
It took me a about a year before I could listen to one of their songs all the way through. Now, I find them to be one of the few things that makes life tolerable and, at times, awesome.
Here's a bunch of their albums at Amazon. That's not even one of those associate links where I get paid if you buy something through it. I would feel guilty taking money for introducing so awesome and essential to you.
