Shonen Knife - Photoscapes

Shonen Knife is a Japanese pop-punk trio, which influenced by 1960s girl groups, the Beach Boys, and early punk rock bands such as the Ramones, have recorded over twenty albums since forming in Osaka in 1981. The group, which currently consists of Naoko Yamano (lead vocals, guitar), her sister Atsuko Yamano (bass) and Risa Kawano (drums), recently toured the UK as part of their 40th Anniversary Tour which had been postponed by two years as a result of the pandemic. These photographs were taken of Shonen Knife at a gig on the tour on the 27th April at The Hare and Hounds in Birmingham.

Shonen Knife - Ruby Lounge, Manchester, 30/4/2014
Nicky Crewe misses most of Shonen Knife's gig at the Ruby Lounge in Manchester due to their late stage arrival, but feels that it was better to have seen some of the Tokyo all girl punk trio's set rather than nothing at all
