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.

Second full-length effort Yama-no Attchan finds the group once again almost exclusively singing in Japanese yet noticeably maturing as musicians and offering up more charming and distinct songs like "Cycling Is Fun," "Chinese Song" and "Flying Jelly Attack."

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