Every Band Has A Shonen Knife Who Loves Them

Shonen Knife are an all female rock group from Japan who had some limited success in the USA during the early 90's. Literally translated their name means 'boy knife'. Blue Oyster is definitely my favourite track by the girls. It manages to combine a song about eating raw oysters and having a subsequent bout of food poisoning alongside a chorus celebrating the US heavy metal band BOC (could be another dodgy R&RD interpretation here !) . Apparently the girls are partial to okonomi-yaki (Japanese pancakes) and octopus balls, sounds like another great song waiting to be written.....

Shonen Knife - For Your Pleasure
'Brue Brue Brue Oyster...................Oyster Poisoning (apologies to any Japanese visitors with my lyric interpretation)'

'Kaki no tatari wa osoroshi'

All recordings are for your audio pleasure only but if you are offended by the material or want the audio sgment removed then please leave a comment on the relevant post and I will remove it.
