Legendary Japanese pop-punk trio Shonen Knife are back in Bristol promoting their newly released 19th studio album ‘Overdrive’. The four-date UK tour features an extra special show at Bristol’s renowned Fleece on Wednesday 12th of May.
Having caught the attention of rock gods Sonic Youth and Nirvana, Shonen Knife deserve to be taken seriously. All about the ‘feel good factor’, they hold a reputation for knocking together catchy pop songs effortlessly. With punky vocal hooks and fast-paced, grungy guitar riffs they are reminiscent of the Ramones, but cooler, because they’re Japanese and, above all, they’re chicks with guitars!
With tickets here, check out track ‘Like a Cat (English Version)’ taken from their new album:
