Founding member Atsuko joined the band for the encores in L.A. and travelled with them for the rest of the tour!!
...
Shonen Knife USA Bassist, Atsuko - flew to Japan to perform with them there. Tickets were priced at 7,000Y.
...
We wish to honor Atsuko on her birthday, February 22! Atsuko is a founding member of Shonen Knife... and was with the band from the time they began in 1982 until her marriage in 2006! She retired from active performance with Shonen Knife at that time, but you can hear her work on their many recordings, where she played drums, bass guitar, keyboards and sang lead and background vocals on many of their great songs. She also appeared as the Bassist with the band on the recent "Knife and Dagger Tour" of the U.S. & Canada in November/December 2007. Atsuko designed their stage costumes from the very beginning... and they are a signature style unique to Shonen Knife. So, Happy, Happy Birthday to Attchan... from the Shonen Knife NeXuS and Shonen Knife fans of all ages, around the planet!!
...
The band was in top form, and included original Shonen Knife founding member, Atsuko on Bass Guitar, sister and founding member Naoko on Lead Guitar, and new fulltime drummer, Etsuko!
...
Atsuko is now residing in the U.S. and was up front again with Naoko as they performed many of their signature songs, and songs from their latest Japanese-release album, "Fun, Fun, Fun!".
...
~ Daisy Rock Guitars ~ Many fans wondered about the new bass guitar that Atsuko Yamano was playing on the recent 2005 U.S. Tour. It's a custom made "Daisy Rock" bass guitar, made in L.A. This company is doing great with it's line of guitars made for women of all ages! Atsuko really likes her "Daisy Rock" Bass, so check out their website at the link above! (her cameo photo is in the "more artists" section there.)
...
We call her by name, "Ettchan", which is very like our favored name for Atsuko, "Attchan". So, if you should speak with her at a future show, it is fine to just greet her as "Ettchan". She is an accomplished drummer... and performed often with Shonen Knife during their 2004 Japan shows.
...
Shonen Knife are Naoko and Atsuko Yamano, with a great support drummer, Mana Nishiura.
...
The stylish & creative Atsuko Yamano was long featured at the back of the stage behind her drum kit.. where she performed with such joyful enthusiam that she was noted as "the most joyful drummer in Rock". Now, Atsuko has moved to front stage, and is clearly displaying her long-time multi-instrumental abilities, as the Bass Player for Shonen Knife.
...
I turned to look and saw Shonen Knife Manager Mr. Shibata... with Naoko and Atsuko here!
...
Naoko and Atsuko soon said, "Oh, Mamiko!
...
Atsuko said, "Of course! We are waiting for you!"
...
So, I couldn't see Atsuko and Mana very well during the show, almost until they were playing Encore. They played, and left the stage, the crowd began clapping and chanting "SHO-NEN KNIFE! SHO-NEN KNIFE!". So they return, and I first saw Atsuko and Mana clearly when they were dancing to Karaoke of "Chinese Disco".
...
Her height is not taller, it is the same as Naoko and Atsuko.
...
Atsuko was playing the bass and singing a song so much more energetic than when she was drummer!
...
I met Atsuko. I said, "It's very good show! I didn't feel blank these few years of Shonen Knife (changes). I think you must practice hard!!"
Atsuko told me, "I am very glad for your words, because you know Shonen Knife very well from old times!"
...
Naoko and Atsuko asked me to "George Ojisan, say hello".
...
I took two photos at backstage with Naoko, Atsuko, Mana and Me.
...
Then, with Naoko, Atsuko, Mana and Marty Freedman (retired Megadeath guitarist).
...
Atsuko played bass and Mana played drums for all songs!
...
Costume was made by Atsuko.
...
Atsuko is playing bass here.
...
A special interview with Shonen Knife - Naoko & Atsuko Yamano was broadcast on Sunday, December 26th 1999 around 6:00 pm, Eastern Time - on Superstation WFMU, New York!
...
Naoko and Atsuko were interviewed by the host for the show, Tamar Rothenberg.
...
The alchemy between Naoko, Michie and Atsuko on the live stage - created spontaneous combustion in crowds who saw them perform.
...
We are encouraged that Michie is reported to be happy, and every Shonen Knife fan in contact as of this update has expressed interest and support for the continuing projects of Shonen Knife with Naoko Yamano and sister Atsuko Yamano (the most joyful drummer in rock) ~ as well as love, hope and anticipation for future musical works from the wonderful Michie Nakatani, who will surely "catch the groove" & "catch her bus!
...
Naoko, Michie and Atsuko looked marvelous in the new *pink sparkle* outfits created by SK Drummer (and Fashion Designer) Atsuko Yamano - who has designed and sewn their smashing trademark stage apparel over the years. (At first, I had the new outfits down as *gold* but a consensus of those at the show said *silver*!
...
Atsuko was very sharp in her *pink* blouse and skirt.
...
Anyone who has seen Shonen Knife LIVE, will recall that Atsuko is a study in joyful bliss when she is singing and performing on the drums. She was certainly radiant during *this* show!
...
6. Fruits and Vegetables - ( Atsuko sang this new song (written by Michie) - in her usual state of "full bliss!)
...
In fact, Atsuko played the guitar, also!!
...
In a recent issue of the Japanese "Knife Collectors" Fanzine - Naoko, Atsuko and Michie said they often went to Ralph's (Sunset Boulevard) supermarket when they stayed in L.A. during the recording sessions, and they also went to Charet Gourmet!

Not long after the all-female Japanese trio that formed in 1981 arrived with a bang into my world about a decade later, bassist Michie Nakatani, frontwoman Naoko Yamano, and drummer Atsuko Yamano got decent at their instruments.
