Atsuko Yamano (山野 敦子, Yamano Atsuko) (February 22, 1964) is a founding member of the Japanese rock trio Shonen Knife. When the band was first started, Atsuko played drums and provided backup vocals. A former fashion designer, she was also responsible for designing the band's stage outfits. After the departure of Michie Nakatani, Atsuko switched from drummer to bassist. Atsuko eventually retired from the band to marry, and moved to Los Angeles. In 2015, following a hiatus from the band, she returned to an active role within Shonen Knife — playing bass guitar on studio albums and joining the band on international tours outside Japan.
