Melt-Banana has created a musical approximation of what it's like to file a piece of metal down to a nub using scribbled distortion patterns.

Yeah this sounds like getting pricked by a cactus alright. Lo-fi, nasty recording quality with a throw-it-as-fast-as-you-can-at-the-wall-and-see-if-it-breaks kind of attitude. They play fast, loose, and relentless, and at 32 tracks the occasional failed experiment is easy to forgive, shit you might not even actually catch it before it's over.
