Flashback Friday -- Shonen Knife

Three perfectly harmless-looking young ladies from Japan, Shonen Knife has been churning out perfect garage-punk/power-pop records since the early 1980's.
We saw them at Slim's in San Francisco in the mid-90's. The main thing I remember was a man in the audience yelling out "I want to have your baby," and one of the Shonens replying, as if this were a perfectly normal thing to say, "Oh, thank you very much," and launching into the next song without missing a beat.
Anyway, here they are, enjoy!

I got a kick out of "Public Bath."

I missed out on Shonen Knife, mostly because before I ever heard them someone described them to me as a heavy metal band. I didn't bother checking them out because metal isn't my thing. This stuff, though, sounds like some sweet rocking 60's power pop.

Brewella-- I think they're still around. Never too late.
