It's a New Find:Shonen Knife

Artist: Shonen Knife

Album: It's A New Find EP

Appears On (Mixes): I'm a Wound and a Sword, A Victim and an Executioner (English I've Gone Berzerk Mix)

Song Notes: I love Shonen Knife and it makes me sad that there's a lot of their stuff that's never made it out over here. The main thing I typically point to is their excellent album Strawberry Sound, but the It's A New Find EP was excellent, too. It was a teaser EP for Brand New Knife, although none of the tracks appeared on that album. The original mix tends to pop up sometimes on Greatest Hits compilations (like the excellent (though I think Japanese only… despite being all English versions) Millennium Collection), but this remix, by John X, is pretty fun, too. A lot more electronic than you'd typically expect for Shonen Knife, but their remixes tend to be so. I've got no idea who John X is, and a Google search only brings up Pope John X, and I have to admit it's hard to believe that a pontiff who's been dead for 1000 years remixed a Shonen Knife song. Although, if he did, I suppose I might be all turned around on spiritual matters. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
