Shonen Knife - Osaka Ramones

Da Brudders were the influence worn on Shonen Knife's leather clad sleeves since the day they picked up guitars so it was only a matter of time before they got down to releasing a whole album of their idols classics.
The only surprise is that it has taken so long.
Is it any good though?
Aw c'mon. It's Shonen Knife playing Ramones tunes.
It does exactly what it says it does on the tin.
So if diminutive Japanese ladies wrapping their tonsils around English language punk rock is your thing then you're not going to be disappointed.
Personally I would have maybe liked the speed to have been turned up a notch, but as a homage to 'the greatest rock and roll band in the world' goes I'm not going to complain.
