Oglio Records is pleased to reissue the first four full-length albums - from groundbreaking all-female Japanese pop-punk trio Shonen Knife - on vinyl in September 2016 including Burning Farm (1983), Yama-no Attchan (1984), Pretty Little Baka Guy (1986) and 712 (1991).

Formed in Osaka in 1981 after hearing late ‘70's punk-pop particularly The Ramones, the band went on to craft their own idiosyncratic songs, fashion signature brightly colored outfits and record a number of DIY albums which made fans of alt-rock's elite like Sonic Youth, Nirvana, and Redd Kross. They're credited with making the international pop underground more international by opening it up to bands from Japan.

Most music audiences were introduced to Shone Knife with their fourth full-length effort 712 which led to one of their first tours with the almighty Nirvana. They cover material here by Lennon/McCartney, pay homage to acts like Redd Kross and White Flag, and invite in guests like guitarist Atsushi Shibata, drummer Victor Indrizzo and vocalist Jeff McDonald, all to great effect.

"When I finally got to see them live, I was transformed into a hysterical nine-year-old girl at a Beatles concert." - Kurt Cobain
