On August 31, Shonen Knife released the English-language versions of their latest album Free Time, as well as 2007’s fun! fun! fun! on Good Charamel Records, the indie label founded by Robby Takac of The Goo Goo Dolls.
Shonen Knife’s Live At Mohawk Place DVD is also available now at indie stores and via the Internet beginning October 19. The live release was recorded during the band’s final stop on the 2009 "Super Group" Tour of North America at Buffalo, NY's Mohawk Place. Highlights include an encore performance by original member Atsuko, 18 songs from their extensive catalog, tunes such as “Giant Kitty,” “Antonio Baka Guy” and “Bear Up Bison,” as well as selections from their Super Group album, including exclusive interview footage. This is a must have item for any Shonen Knife collector.
Shonen Knife also appear on Good Charamel’s recently released I Love J-Rock compilation, alongside such buzzing Japanese acts as TsuShiMaMiRe, LAZYgunsBRISKY and Molice to name a few.
