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.

The cream of the of the alt. rock scene (Sonic Youth / L7 / Redd Kross) covered their favourite Shonen Knife songs on the tribute album ‘Every Band Has A Shonen Knife Who Loves Them’ and the girls toured with Nirvana (on the ‘Nevermind’ tour), The Breeders, and as part of Lollapalooza. They even recorded sessions for John Peel and appeared on MTV’s ‘Beavis and Butthead’.
