Hi everyone,

we hope that you’ve been enjoying Summer, this is our July News-Slaughter.

Last month we had a last minute gig for 985th Shonen Knife Gig. Thanks to Naoko, Ritsuko and Emi and all who attended the special gig that saw them play many rare songs including Atsuko singing ‘Fruits & Vegetables’.
The band are now on their 712 (KNIFE) Day then OVERDRIVE Tour in Japan followed by an extensive tour of North America, then India.
