JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD

Shonen Knife is the legendary all-female Japanese pop-punk band formed in Osaka, Japan in 1981. Heavily influenced by 1960s girl groups, pop bands, and early punk rock acts, such as The Beach Boys and The Ramones, the trio plays stripped-down songs with infectious melodies and simplistic, exuberant lyrics sung both in Japanese and English. Despite their pop-oriented nature, the trio maintains a distinctly underground garage rock sound rooted in edgy instrumentation and D.I.Y. aesthetics. The bands twenty-seven-year career has seen them tour the world with Nirvana (on the Nevermind tour), Sonic Youth, The Breeders and as part of Lollapolooza. They recorded “Buttercup (I’m a Supergirl)” for the popular cartoon ‘The Powerpuff Girls’. Shonen Knife’s return to being a trio. On the new album Super Group, support bassist Ritsuko has joined the band as an official member. Now Shonen Knife has become a 3 piece band again and a super group was born
