Won't have heard of them? The "Osaka Ramones"? I love Shonen Knife!
Have a pile of their CDs. One of my favourite power pop bands (from
my Riot Grrrrl period about 10 years ago, before I got into jazz in a
big way). Saw them at Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern about that long ago.
They were amazing.
Great shots! Bring back memories.
