Shonen Knife, which literally translates to ‘boy knife’, are a all female punk-pop group hailing from Osaka, Japan. The band have developed a cult following in the West, in large part due to their championing by the late Kurt Cobain of Nirvana.

The band have been working tirelessly since 1981, when their founder first heard The Ramones and decided to form a band herself. 31 years and 19 albums later Shonen Knife are still going strong embarking on a worldwide tour to support their latest release ‘Pop Tune’. This is a great chance to see a legendary Japanese band live in Newcastle, so don’t miss this opportunity!

If you like the Ramones, this should be right up your street.
