Shonen 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. 
Much of their earlier material has been unavailable on vinyl for quite some time, thus, Oglio Records has decided to re-release their first four LPs on vinyl, including Yama-no Attchan (originally released in 1984).
The LP is standard weight black vinyl with no download card.
