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.
