Yes, ladies and gentlemen, they’re still at it. Fresh from a tour of Europe and Japan, the legendary Japanese pop punk rockers Shonen Knife are hitting US stages as we speak.
The trio has been touring for almost 30 years with upbeat rock tracks about food, partying, socks and Barbies, and they show no sign of a break. We interviewed them recently about their adventures as an all-girl group, touring, and their 14th(!) album Supergroup. We also got some exclusive live performances, which you can watch here!
Still not enough Shonen Knife in your life? The tireless ladies also released a DVD of their live performance at Mohawk Place in Buffalo, NY. Order Shonen Knife: Lives at Mohawk Place 2009, The Ultimate Live DVD on October 9!
