Not so mellow yellow

I think it's fair to say that going on one's own to see a Japanese noise rock/grindcore band and Cardiff's answer to Big Black do their thing at the Globe is not the customary way to spend one's wedding anniversary - but in my defence Jen completely forgot about the date too and forgave my disappearing act. Good job, really - otherwise I would have missed out on another corker of a gig, courtesy of Melt-Banana and Gindrinker.

It was particularly nice to reacquaint myself with the latter, a band whom I saw several times during my first stint living in Cardiff and who continue to soldier on in delightfully messy, idiosyncratic and provocative fashion.
