Shonen Knife On World Cafe

After 35 years, the three women who make up this Japanese band have cemented their status as cult heroes and pop-punk icons.
In 1981 in Osaka, Japan, three young women with a shared love of the Ramones, The Beatles and the Buzzcocks decided to quit their office jobs and start a band. 35 years later, the members of Shonen Knife have cemented their status as cult heroes and pop-punk icons. The band's musical canon includes playful songs like "Banana Chips," "I Am A Cat" and "Flying Jelly Attack," and its touring history includes eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with Kurt Cobain while on the road with Nirvana.
