Let’s Knife!

Old New Knife...25 years and counting! 

After the Hello Kitty video finally posted, I got a couple messages from sharp-eyed folks asking what a Shonen Knife was, since it was listed in the credits.

First off, Shonen Knife isn’t a what, it’s a who. More specifically, a rock band.

The best way to describe Shonen Knife is to say they are basically The Ramones, if The Ramones were 3 Japanese chicks who sang about candy, cats, and basically made pop music awesome again.

They are one of 3 groups I would actually go see in concert…the other 2 being Smashing Pumpkins and White Stripes.

I’m starting the petition now…


Big huge thanks to R. AKA Jerk With A Camera for the gracious usage of his totally kickass pic of Shonen Knife from a concert last December.

  1. Well what can I say the perfect combination Blitzkrieg Bop and the power puff girls! These girls are pretty cool not sure it would get me on a plane for a couple of days to come to WWPC but yes you have my vote they really are pretty sweet. Their covers made me reminisce about my mum playing the Carpenters and the monkeys when I was younger. Best waste of a few hours on YouTube yet.
