Live Review: Shonen Knife (Japan) - Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane (23.01.15)

Not many bands can claim 30 years of albums, tours, singles and a worldwide cult status, but Japanese all-girl pop punk act Shonen Knife are one of the few - and with good reason. Their songs are simple, incredibly catchy and have extreme novelty value, and their live show is an energetic and polished affair - it’s a winning combination, and it drew a huge crowd to Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art on Friday night.

With three guitars, each song has melody, harmony and ambience woven through to create a true tapestry of sound. The drums push them along, alternatively deft and punishing.
