Not sure if this is Shonen Knife playing "Twist Barbie" but I like it.
Shonen Knife it is indeed.
It’s Shonen Knife remixed by The Moog Cookbook:
Shonen Knife supposedly wanted their name to be The Osaka Ramones, but their publicist said no, fearing legal action. Years later, when they were playing with the Ramones, one of the guys told them that they should have gone with their instinct, and kept their original name.
Yep, that’s the Knife alright – though the remix does trippify their sound quite a bit.
Their “Tortoise Brand Pot Scrubbing Cleaners” song remains my favorite.
For sure, they’re even singing in Kansai ben – ii na….
That long ago, no one rock piece was getting 4 minutes 19 seconds. Was doing pretty good to get half that.
Obviously someone is a little unhealthy.
