Shonen Knife Release Alive! In Osaka

Japan’s legendary punk pop behemoth; Shonen Knife, have released ALIVE! In Osaka via Good Charamel Records in North America, Europe and The UK.

The DVD/CD package was recorded live at Juso Fandango in Osaka, Japan in December of 2017 and includes 21 tracks from the band’s 3+ decade long career as Japan’s most loved Indie rock import.

Frontwoman, Naoko, explained to Antiquiet; “It is our first live album after 12 years. The drummer was changed from last time. You can try to compare the new one with the last one. It might be interesting. The show was held in our hometown and of course everybody there was so excited. I hope you can get happy, fun and cheerful with this album.” 

Featuring classics such as “Twist Barbie”, “Bear Up Bison” and “Sushi Bar Song”, newer tracks like “Jump Into The New World” and “Rock N Roll Tee Shirt” as well as a cover of Nick Lowe’s classic “Cruel To Be Kind”, the band is captured in their true element, entertaining fans in the city that made them who they are today.

ALIVE! In Osaka is available as a limited edition CD/DVD set and digitally in audio and video formats for streaming and download.
