Cultish, long-lived (30 years!), Nirvana- and Sonic Youth-championed Japanese all-girl punk-pop trio Shonen Knife return to Europe this year with their 18th album ‘Pop Tune’ (released June 2012 on Damnably Records). Expect loud and buoyant guitars, rapid fire pop-punk drums and sweet harmonies. A rock show not to be missed!
