Shonen Knife

Shonen Knife play Parlor Bar in Newport, RI (photo by Akira Shibata)

Punk-pop legends Shonen Knife are touring to promote Adventure, the food-loving Osaka trio’s twentieth full-length album (give or take). Sisters Naoko and Atsuka Yamano first formed the band in 1981, and they really haven’t stopped (or for that matter evolved) since then, though maybe they have mellowed a bit over the years. The sweet “Green Tangerine” doesn’t pack the punch of, say, “Sushi Bar!”, a personal favorite from 1998, or “Twist Barbie,” which I guess is the closest they ever had to an original hit. They play with Benny Sizzler, The Dents, and Tiny Diamonds.
