Good Charamel Records is proud to announce the signing of legendary female Japanese Garage Rockers "SHONEN KNIFE"!

GCR will be releasing their latest recording "Super Group" in August, 2009, with an extensive North American Tour to follow in the Fall.

Please stay tuned for up to the minute details on the release, appearances and the 2009 N.American tour !

That record, Super Group, came out last year in Japan. Shonen Knife's fall tour dates, while not announced in full, are starting to filter in. One confirmed gig will happen on Friday, October 16th at Santos Party House in NYC. Tickets are on sale.

Shonen Knife will be playing a string of their West Coast dates with Ty Segall, and several weeks of shows with JEFF the Brotherhood. The Jeff and Shonen tour dates include a Tuesday, November 17th show planned at the new Brooklyn Bowl. No ticket info for that yet.

Wow! I used to listen to these chicks during my awkward phase of high school in 1994! I remember them collaborating with Lemmy from Motorhead for a song called "Tomato Head." Glad to see they're still around & kicking it! Fuck, for $12 I just might have to go check them out.

No west coast date for Shonen Knife? Fail.

Explain how this video is typical. I though it was pretty cool.
