"Twist Barbie" by Shonen Knife is one of our household's favorite songs ever. Here's my anecdote on Shonen Knife canon discovery. Calvin Johnson of K Records wrote me way back in the day when I asked for a K catalog, inquiring if I was the same person who art directed The Best of Bobby Darin on Warner Special Products (and yes. My art direction credit was hidden inside the cd booklet. What does that say about both of us?) His catalog, so verbose about each artist, merely had the following copy for the first Shonen Knife release: "the best thing ever."
