Album: Shonen Knife, Pop Tune (Damnably)
Sunday 01 July 2012
There are two types of people: those who enjoy thrashy Japanese girl-punk, and those who have something wrong with them.
With one track called "Psychedelic Life" and another which nudges five minutes, Shonen Knife's 17th album briefly raises fears that they've gone hippy on us. Thankfully, the Knife have remained true to their essential principles: namely, buzzsaw guitars, sugary harmonies and lyrics about all-you-can-eat buffets and paperclips.
