Shonen Knife

Wikipedia (September 2011) - Shonen Knife, which transliterates as Shonen Naifu, literally "Boy Knife," is an all-female Japanese pop-punk band formed in Osaka, Japan, in 1981. Heavily influenced by 1960s girl groups, pop bands, The Beach Boys, and early punk rock acts, such as the Ramones, the trio crafts stripped-down songs expressing infectious melodies and simplistic, exuberant lyrics sung both in Japanese and English.

Despite their pop-oriented nature, the trio maintains a distinctly underground garage rock sound rooted in edgy instrumentation and D.I.Y. aesthetics, which over the course of their long career has earned them a solid, worldwide cult following and made avid fans out of seminal '90s alternative rock acts such as Sonic Youth, Nirvana, and Redd Kross. The band has been credited with making "the international pop underground more international" by "opening it up to bands from Japan". They have also performed as a Ramones tribute band under the name The Osaka Ramones.

Shonen Knife came back in 2006 with the all new Genki Shock! In their 25th anniversary as a group, Shonen Knife stay true to their "Ramones Of Japan" punk pop roots. Fans call this sharper edged release their best in years. The US version has been re-recorded in English, it features a new sequence, and it has a new version of the album art with English lyrics in the liner notes.

"The word 'Genki' means cheerful, high-spirited, vigorous or spry in Japanese. I’d like you to be 'Genki' with this album. Also the word 'Genki' is similar to the Japanese word 'Denki'. 'Denki Shock' means 'Electric Shock'. If you listen to Shonen Knife, you will get a cheerful shock. Have fun!"

The Japanese trio Shonen Knife made major fans out of Alt-rock's elite including Sonic Youth, Nirvana, and Redd Kross, among many others. They built a solid worldwide cult following and have spawned new fans with their tours including Lollapalooza, the release of a Shonen Knife tribute CD, as well as new material. Much of Shonen Knife's earlier material has been unavailable for quite some time and because of the pent up demand and to support their upcoming 2005 tour, Oglio Records has decided to re-release their first four discs at a very attractive price.

Kurt Baker From The Leftovers Embarks On Solo Career

Debuts First Single, “Don’t Steal My Heart Away”

Los Angeles Portland Maine’s Kurt Baker from The Leftovers embarks on a new solo career with his first original material since the release of his group’s Crappy Records</a>/Oglio debut, “Eager To Please". Kurt’s new track “Don’t Steal My Heart Away” is available now at all digital retailers as well as special fans only versions at his Facebook and WordPress pages. This is the first single from his upcoming solo album of all new material, due later in 2011 on Crappy Records/Oglio Record, a Fontana/Universal distributed label.

“‘Don’t Steal My Heart Away’ could have been a The Leftovers tune, but playing it with a whole set of musicians in the Goodnight Process, a band I briefly moonlighted with in the Spring of 2010, really shaped how the song would eventually turn out. I dug this tune so much, and the audience reception to it was always great whenever we played it live, I knew this was one of the first tunes I wanted to record for my upcoming solo album.” – Kurt Baker, Portland Maine

The new single was produced by Jonathan Wyman (also produced The Leftovers first ever release) at Portland’s legendary The Halo studio and features Geoff Useless, Craig Sala, Kris “Fingers” Rodgers, Josh Malia and a killer lead guitar solo that channels The Shirelles “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”, thanks to guitar monster Miek Rodrigue.

“Don’t Steal My Heart Away” is the follow up release to Kurt’s cover of The Nerves “Hanging On The Telephone” from his Got It Covered EP, a side venture in fun 80’s power pop influences. “Hanging On The Telephone” is available as a seven inch vinyl 45. Catch the new Kurt Baker Band at the Paul Collins presents Power-Pop-A-Licious Fest at Asbury Lanes, Asbury Park NY beginning on April 30, 2011.

"Don’t Steal My Heart Away"
It started out like nothing new, it’s still the same old story
I saw her dancing at the show, she looked my way and suddenly
I got the feeling, hits me every time
One more one night stand, where do I draw the line?
(Hey now baby) You’ve got A lot to Learn
(About some loving) But since it is your turn
(So don’t misuse it) Don’t steal my heart away
She said she’s like to know me more, but I know all about her
She’ll have her way til she gets bored, I’m through with this encounter
No more guessing and hide your disguise
You’ll be on to the next one before it’s goodbye
(Hey now baby) You’ve got A lot to Learn
(About some loving) But since it is your turn
(So don’t misuse it) Don’t steal my heart away
Tell me - tell me what your doing, I can’t stop from losing
It’s a shame they call it love
So i’m through, being your affection, if you just want attention
And i’m not giving it up
No more guessing and hide your disguise
You’ll be on to the next one before it’s goodbye
(Hey now baby) You’ve got A lot to Learn
(About some loving) But since it is your turn
(So take it easy) Don’t steal my heart away

Kurt Baker – Hanging On The Telephone

Side A: "Hanging on The Telephone

Side B: "Pump It Up"

Hanging On The Telephone

Many people know this song as recorded by the beautiful Debbie Harry and Blondie, but in fact the original was written by Jack Lee, who played in the legendary LA punk/pop group The Nerves. Along with Lee, the other members included Paul Collins and Peter Case. Both members would go on to front bands like The (Paul Collins) Beat and The Plimsouls, both staples in late 70's Power Pop.

My version stays pretty true to the original, but it also reminds me of a great Swedish rock n' roll band called the Hellacopters. I saw them once in Boston and it totally blew my mind.. actually, they were probably the greatest band I've ever seen live. Speaking of Boston, Kay Hanley from the legendary Boston group Letters to Cleo (and in the new Oglio group, Palmdale ...editors note), sang back ups on this! She is awesome!

The intro sound clip is taken from Linus's voice mail on his phone. He's got a fancy phone... my phone doesn't even have a voicemail option, it's that old!

"Hanging On The Telephone"

The Making of "Hanging On The Telephone"



“Kurt Baker is an amalgamation of all my favorite things. He’s got a biting vocal swagger (reminiscent of Elvis Costello and Joe Jackson), a comprehensive knowledge of classic pop music, a lovable Joey Ramone-esque personality and the songwriting chops of a man twice his age. I’m continuously excited by his creativity, positivity and prolificness.”

- Linus of Hollywood

"Kurt Baker is interesting. He is lovable like a puppy dog, goofy in that Jeff Spicoli kinda way, and well endowed in his knowledge of music that happened years before his birth. This man devotes as much time to the crafting of nachos, as he does to sleeping. Add this to the fact that his voice and stage presence are as unmistakeable as a punch to the nuts, and you have Kurt Baker. The Man. The Character. The whole Shit-n-shabootle!"

- Jaret Reddick (Bowling For Soup)
