Songkick> «When I finally got to see them live, I was transformed into a hysterical nine-year-old girl at a Beatles concert.” Kurt Cobain SHONEN KNIFE The **** formed in Osaka in 1981, when Naoko Yamana first heard late ‘70’s punk-pop, particularly The Ramones. Inspired, the band crafted their own idiosyncratic songs, fashioned brightly coloured outfits and DIY albums. In 1985, K Records released ‘Burning Farm’ in the United States. Deals with Sub Pop and various majors followed. They toured with Nirvana (on the ‘Nevermind’ tour), Sonic Youth and Breeders. they rocked Lollapalooza, Reading Festival, Roskilde Festival, Fuji Rock Festival, recorded sessions for John Peel and appeared on MTV’s ‘Beavis and Butt-Head’ and wrote a song for The Powerpuff Girls . More recently, Shonen Knife have: played Matt Groening’s curated ATP Festival, toured the UK, Continental Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, China and India, played Incubate, Le Guess Who? Handmade Festival The Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival, released the critically accailmed albums Supergroup, Freetime, Osaka Ramones, Poptune and Overdrive, recorded regular BBC6 Music sessions for Marc Riley and Gideon Coe and been sited as a trailblazing influence on many of today’s young female bands.
