We proudly supported our labelmates Shonen Knife at The Scala in London with smallgang and slowgun and the show SUPERROCKED thanks to all the bands being on top form and a great Sound guy called Sean Richards (usually works for Boredoms and big bands) plus a huge friendly audience.
Ritsuko Shonen Knife’s amazing bassist came on stage to watch us and Naoko was watching from the side-which felt kinda magical as I am a big fan of Shonen Knife and was lucky enough to spend the last 3 weeks watching them rock-out each night on their ‘Free Time’ Tour in Europe.
A Love Like Infinity
All the bands celebrated after the show at the Scala and The Lexington and it was lovely to hang out with everyone but sad to say goodbye to Emi, Ritsuko and Naoko at the end of the night – some of us may have had tears in our eyes!
Shonen Knife will be back over next year with a new album and hopefully we will play with them again.
