2011 has been an exciting 30th anniversary year for
Japanese rockers Shonen Knife who released their
16th studio album `Free Time' together with the `Osaka
Ramones' tribute album. The band rocked a month
long European tour, not stopping when they returned
to Japan for a small tour before jetting off to North
America only 45 days later for another extensive tour.
Now they've recorded this sugary sweet jingle'bell
rock cracker of a single `Sweet Christmas'.
Naoko is quite a lover of cakes and her `Rock'n'Roll
cake was one of the standout track on `Free Time'.

It's frosted garage fuzz'pop and the band's first
Christmas single since "All I Want For Christmas" copenned
by Thurston Moore, and their UK hit `Space
Christmas' that held the imagination of the nation
back in 1991.
The B'side contains an acoustic rendition of `Sweet
Christmas' and a cheeky cover of `We wish you a
merry Christmas' with Emi and Ritsuko each
contributing vocals on a verse after Naoko.
Uncut "rocks like Motorhead designed by Hanna'Barbara"
BBC Music " The Osaka Ramones, you must concede, still have it."
Big Issue "for energy and fun, its no wonder they're Japan's prime
punk act"
"Upbeat, quirky and fun: that's what the band does best."
Artrocker "chock'full of singalong fun times"
Sunday Express "an absolute breath of fresh air"
The Fly "Always charming, always exhilarating... simply perfect
Mojo "an exercise in lustrous pop."
The Sunday Times "...irrepressible slice of bounce'along indiepop.
Beguiling." Stewart Lee
NME "As youthful, enchanting and boisterous as ever before.
