Adding some spice to this month’s Wild Wacky Party event, held to mark the 18th anniversary of Japanese punk ladies Lolita No. 18, South Korea’s Shorty Cat are bound to cause a few cold sweats.
Formed in Seoul in winter 2003, the four-piece are key players in South Korea’s punk scene. They’re one of very few all-girl punk bands, for a start, and they rock a philosophy of unity and passion that will surely nourish the scene in the years to come. And if that’s not enough, they’re also as cool as fridges.
