From the story –
Shonen Knife will celebrate thirty years together by paying tribute to their "biggest musical inspirations," The Ramones. The pop-punk trio from Japan will be releasing Osaka Ramones on July 19, 2011 . The album will feature 13 Ramones classics performed by the band. It will be supported by a North American tour.For those who have never heard Shonen Knife, the influence of the Ramones is obvious, but in a good way. These girls have never come off as a gimick or anything other than a high energy band. I’m looking forward to getting this CD.
