Rare Shonen Knife Song [15 Oct 2012|08:43pm]


Hello Shonen Knife fans! Here is a rare song from Shonen Knife called Hamigaki, about why you should brush your teeth every day! Or else bacteria will move in! No fun, guys!

This song will be appearing on the upcoming Shonen Knife re-release, "Golden Best Shonen Knife" which will feature a mix of classic tracks and a few rares. I believe the re-release date is 12/5/12.

Do you all have your copy of Pop Tune? There are three versions, UK, Japan, and USA, but I think the tracks are all the same. I only have the UK version as of right now so I cannot confirm. I think my favorite track is Psychedelic Life.

Hi everyone,

I thought you might like to know that Shonen Knife's latest album, Pop Tune, comes out on 6/6/2012. They are planning a North American tour in association with this record, and they have released their tour dates.

Here they are:

8-21 Cleveland, OH- Beachland Ballroom*
8-22 Toronto, ON- The Quadrangle / Hart House
* w/ opening band White Mystery

If you can manage, I highly recommend you attend. I haven't seen them for several years and unfortunately I don't think I can make any of these dates as they are all too far away from me. However I did see them at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland several years ago, so I can recommend that venue as being pretty good.

Anyway, make sure you pre-order or pick up a copy of Pop Tune when it comes out (there will probably be a Japanese, English, and possibly special UK edition), so make sure you collect them all! Haha.

Anyway, yay Shonen Knife!

USA vs. Japan releases [20 Sep 2009|04:00pm]

[ mood | confused ]

Hey everybody,

After taking a more in-depth look at some of Shonen Knife's discography I've realized I didn't know there were so many CD's released in both Japan and US versions. I haven't been able to find a really good place online that really states how to tell the differences between the two versions either. There is the obvious, that each release has different cover art [one "Genki Shock!" has a yellow background and one "Genki Shock!" has a pink background for example), but what else is different with the albums that have and foreign and domestic release??

I have a copy of "Heavy Songs", for example, that someone literally made me a copy of and I always thought it was the English version.... now I'm not so sure. Any helpful hints on how to tell the different albums apart? Both cover art and mabye certain songs sung in Japanese and certain songs sung in Englsih???

2009 SK Tour [21 Mar 2009|09:26pm]

Isn't it great that Shonen Knife announced their 2009 Tour?!  I'm really looking forward to it.

I'm curious - how many long-time fans are out there?  I've been fortunate to catch most of their US tours - the first one going back to 1994.  Every tour is great in my book.   They are by far my favorite band.   Can't wait to see them live again!

SK Guitar Tabs [07 Dec 2008|10:38pm]
Hello! Can anybody tell me where to find a good collection of Shonen Knife guitar tabs on the web? I keep finding the same 5 or 6 songs on the usual tab websites. I want to learn how to play Mysterious Drugstore, Giant Kitty, and more.

The new Super Group CD rocks!!
