The Please Help
Shonen Knife was formed in Osaka by the leading member Naoko. The origin of the band name is an old brand name of a pencil sharpener knife.
They released the 1st album «Burning Farm» from zero records in 1983. It was released from an American label «K» records in 1985. Their one and only unique sound got popular in North America, UK and Europe, they released their first major album «Let's Knife» in Japan, U.S. and UK in 1992. Since then, they release albums and have worldwide tours constantly.
Despite their pop-oriented nature, the trio maintains a distinctly underground garage rock sound rooted in edgy instrumentation and D.I.Y. aesthetics, which over the course of their long career has earned them a solid, worldwide cult following and made avid fans out of seminal 1990s alternative rock bands such as Sonic Youth, Nirvana, and Redd Kross. The band has been credited with making «the international pop underground more international» by «opening it up to bands from Japan»
