Current Bassist info: Michie, Atsuko and Ritsuko all looked like "girl next door" and don't have a resume as bassist. Kaori is greatest in the history of Shonen Knife Bassist. She doesn't use a pick and performs by her fingers. But Ritsuko is more natural for the Shonen Knife mood. Ritsuko was traditional like Michie and Atsuko.
...
I wish Shonen Knife had three Bass players: Atsuko, Ritsuko and Kaori!
...
Atsuko will return from L.A. to play in the next show in Tokyo this month. So, I can't meet Chizuru. They might not fix support Bass Player for a time, yet.
The names Atsuko, Etsuko, Ritsuko and Chizuru... they are a crackjaw name for American people to say, maybe?
...
Atsuko returned from L.A. for several weeks in Japan. A lot of fans came from Osaka, Nagoya etc.... to see her.
It was her first show, from last July. I am seeing only three times a support Bass player with the band, so I didn't think "long time no see". haha! The hall was full and in the air, it was HOT.
Naoko asked Atsuko on the stage: "How about today's live show, and your new life in L.A?"
...
Atsuko: "I am so excited and happy to play Shonen Knife again.
...
Atsuko: "It is the first time that I perform this song with Bass.
...
Atsuko: "Thanks!

...
And, even as they enter their third decade, Yamano, in an online interview, insists that there will be "no final for Shonen Knife."

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.
