Shonen Knife: ULU, London
Caroline Sullivan, The Guardian, 2 December 1992
TOKYO APPARENTLY has a flourishing indie scene, and female trio Shonen Knife are its stars. Their popularity certainly emphasises the cultural gap between East and West. Their penchant for cuddly toys and seventies power pop is presumably intended as irony. One hopes so, anyway. In Britain, though (where an album, Let's Knife has just been released), they have been received as novelties.
