On Friday night I went to see 少年ナイフ (Shonen Knife) they were amazing. I've never watched a band who smiled throughout a show, but these ladies did. Seems like forever since they last toured (12 years apparently) I missed out then. Thank goodness they did sideshows as I really wasn't interested in going to the festivals they're playing.
Fun show, great catchy pop/punk tunes Muddy Bubbles Hell is such a fantastic song especially with the synchronised head banging & metal stances. Easily the best song of the night. Gotta love ladies who love Judas Priest, Iron Maiden & Motörhead. My memory is always terrible when it comes to set lists but I'm pretty sure these songs were played (in no particular order):
- Konnichiwa
- Sushi Bar
- Ah, Singapore
- Twist Barbie
- E.S.P.
- BBQ Party
- Super Group
Hopefully it won't be another 12 years before these Osaka ladies are back.
Go see them if you can, they're definitely worth it.
