When I obtained nirvana. Pic. included. - 11/10/17 10:27 PM

Me and my Crew, having a great time together at a shake joint.
Making it rain, making it snow.
June 13, 2015, Nashville, Tn.

Like I said " Live it, or live with it"

Some of you thought I was just a dreamer, well you see I really do live it.

It is not a dream, it is real !

And it just looks like humans to most of you. This is cosmic.

What are you talking about? Are you currently on medication that restricts you from operating heavy machinery?
Are we supposed to know what any of your post is supposed to mean?

I'm all for checking out something new (to me).....

shock

To each their own I guess.

Ya'll need to check out their vids for the comments if not anything else....

"EVERY SHONEN KNIFE GIRL HAS A FANBOY WHO LOVES THEM!"

"To the guy who said this brought tears to his eyes: right with you there dude. What beautiful people they are."

"This look, this sound — they're really working for me! The band is pure pleasure to watch. Nice camera work"


Maybe my problem is that I don't do drugs? shruggy

It's not about doing drugs. It's more about being aware of the music continuum started by bands like the Ramones, Sonic Youth, the Rezillos, Redd Kross and so on. Shonen Knife are a Japanese pop band who listened to new wave and punk. Like those bands, they did the DIY thing and found their place in the alternative scene. Yeah, they are a bit weird if you are unfamiliar with this kind of music (plus, it helps to understand Japanese pop culture too), but they are completely charming and were exciting to see live back when the original members were intact. Props to Yorker for discovering them with an open mind.

Thanks, I'll pass.
I like my classic rock and EDM. Odd combination, I know...

A co-worker just showed me his latest craze:

Japanese Tiny Bopper Death Metal. A couple of girls dressed up like Sailor Moon and singing bubble gum tunes accompanied by a Death Metal Band.

LOL, Michie the original bass player has not been with the band since about 1998. May have been someone take her place couple of year until Ritsuko took her place for about 8 years. She had a baby in 2014 so Atsuko, Naokos sister and original drummer took over for 2015 ,2016 and 2017. They do have a new person.

Why are the fans weird? Listen to some of the lyrics.

I am happy you know about Michie.

[i]"EVERY SHONEN KNIFE GIRL HAS A FANBOY WHO LOVES THEM!"

"To the guy who said this brought tears to his eyes:"

That comment about brings tears to an old mans eye's was from me when I first seen the new video " Jump into the new world ".

WITH OVER 100 SONGS, ROCK, HEAVY METAL, CUTE, ETC AND 37 YEARS, PRETTY SURE SOME OF YOU CAN FIND AT LEAST ONE SONG YOU LIKE.

So glad some of you are fans. They do tour USA, Europe or whatever it is called now, UK ? and other places.
Thing is, they are well known but get out in public as if they were common people. Naoko, has to have an IQ way up there. You can actually feel energy radiating around her, like some type of opposing magnetic force.
Odd I said I obtained Nirvana. Kurt Cobain of Nirvana fame was a big fan of SK. He invited them to tour with him. That is when I first found SK, at a Nirvana concert in 1993. When SK came on stage and performed, EVERYONE was so happy. It was like WT heck just happened.
I liked them more than I did Nirvana.
I assumed they were just anther come and go band, I did not even remember their name. I got curious about 7 years ago, looked up who played with Nirvana back then and was surprised they were still touring and I had missed them all these years.
I bet by March-April next year they will announce another US Tour.
I still listen to them most every day.
