Screaming Tarts Presents…
Shonen Knife + The Schoolgirls

Over to Kurt Cobain, “When I finally got to see SHONEN KNIFE live, I was transformed into a hysterical nine-year-old girl at a Beatles concert”.

“Objectively, they can only play in a rudimentary fashion, their songs are ludicrously simple and it’s not new. Objectivity can fuck right off, because Shonen Knife are brilliant” – Artocker

Ground-breaking all-female Japanese pop-punk rock trio formed in Osaka in 1981, inspired by late ‘70’s punk-pop particularly The Ramones. Inspired, the band crafted their own idiosyncratic songs, fashioned brightly coloured outfits and DIY albums and signed to Sub Pop.
