Shonen Knife

Jetting in from Osaka Rock City, Shonen Knife visit Marc to show off their new album Overdrive, the all-female Japanese cult trio's 20th album in 33 years.

Shonen Knife are visiting us to show off their new album Overdrive - we will be impressed. It's the all-female Japanese cult trio's 20th album in 33 years - impressed again.

Formed in Osaka by guitarist and chief songwriter Naoko in 1981, the band rose from humble DIY beginnings to touring with Nirvana on their Nevermind tour - impressed one last time.
