Shonen Knife to Release Ramones Cover Album

PunkNews.org is reporting that Shonen Knife will be releasing a Ramones tribute album this summer. 

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.
