All female Japanese legends 'Shonen knife' return to Bristol 'Rock City' & The Fleece in May 2014 with their 20th album "Overdrive", released April 14 on Damnably.
Formed in Osaka 33 years ago, the trio rose from humble DIY beginnings to the heights of touring with Nirvana on their ‘Nevermind’ tour, trailblazing a path for women in music and inspiring legions of bands.
Favourites of Kurt Cobain, John Peel, Thurston Moore, Lauren Laverne, Marc Riley, Gideon Coe, Jen Long, Radcliffe & Maconie, Steve Lamacq, Ruth Barnes & Jonathon Ross, Shonen Knife remain the most influential and beloved of Japanese rock exports.
Live, they are a tight rock machine punching out fast, highly exciting sets of Punk, Pop, Rock & Metal hits, each song coated with their distinctively life-affirming quirky magic. As as they fast approach their 1000th gig, Shonen Knife's joy and invention shows no sign of fading. As Naoko says 'Let's Rock!'
"When I finally got to see them live, I was transformed into a hysterical nine-year-old girl at a Beatles concert." Kurt Cobain.
Uncut: "rocks like Motorhead designed by Hanna-Barbara"
BBC Music: "The Osaka Ramones, you must concede, still have it."
The Independent: 8/10 "There are two types of people: those who enjoy thrashy Japanese girl-punk, and those who have something wrong with them."
Music OMH: 8/10 "For an incredible 31 years Shonen Knife have been pumping out prototype riot grrrl, thrashing together early punk sounds with pop melodies."
The Sunday Times: "irrepressible slice of bounce-along indie-pop. Beguiling." Stewart Lee
BBC 6Music (Steve Lamacq):"Shonen Knife - they know how to rock - Japanese punk pop at its best."
