It's 25 years since sisters Naoko and Atsuko Yamano together with Michie Nakatani formed Shonen Knife. The group soon gained a cult following, especially outside Japan, for their pop punk songs about life in Japan, sung in a mixture of English and Japanese. They could count Sonic Youth and Nirvana among their fans, both of whom they played with. They found more popularity at home from the mid 90s or so and by 1999 Michie had left the band and Atsuko moved from drums to bass. This is their best of album as chosen by the band. CD 1 has 20 of their greatest tunes including Twist Barbie, I am a Cat, Burning Farm, Cobra versus Mongoose, E.S.P. Explosion! Konnichiwa and Chinese Disco. CD2 has 15 rare tracks including Space Christmas, Milky Way, Till the End of the Day, Girl's Rock.
