Editorial Reviews

Shonen Knife, Japan's most notable indie musical import, celebrates their 30 anniversary w/ a tribute to The Ramones. ""Osaka Ramones"" is not only the name of this Ramones tribute album, but is also the name of the side project which has made its way in and out of Shonen Knife's performing history for decades. Osaka Ramones was recorded and mixed between Osaka, JP and New York. Enjoy this awesome collection of songs and celebrate the music of the world's greatest punk rock band while we celebrate the 4th decade of Japan's indie rock icons, the mighty Shonen Knife...

Naoko Yamano of Shonen Knife has worn her Ramones fandom on her sleeve, so it's a bit surprising that a Shonen Knife Ramones tribute album has taken this long to materialize. OSAKA RAMONES should please Ramones fans and Shonen Knife fans alike. SK is not fooling around with their choice of songs for this release: they are all rockers! I like the way Ramones songs have been turned into Shonen Knife songs with their signature pop/punk sound. And: I must say that after all these years of "family-friendly" SK material, it's highly amusing to hear Naoko singing the lyrics to such drug-soaked titles as PSYCHO THERAPY and CHINESE ROCK. The disc wraps up with the Ramones classic PINHEAD, which includes original background voices from the Ramones version...a nice touch. My only real complaint here is that OSAKA RAMONES is too short at barely over a half hour. But, as we know, a half hour is enough for quite a few Ramones songs. SK's versions are well performed, and this release marks the CD debut of Shonen Knife's newest member, drummer Emi Morimoto. Emi fits in well, and hopefully the band will now remain stable for a while. Kudos to Naoko, Ritsuko and Emi for another diverting Shonen Knife album!

No one, I repeat, no one can do the Ramones as good as the RAMONES. And every Ramones tribute I have heard for the most part really sucks and are just awful. Except The Queers, Screeching Weasel and now this - Shonen Knife's excellent homage. They pay the Ramones a great deal of respect by doing the songs justice and it'll have you singing along and worth the buy - Shonen Knife is just a fun band in general, if you dig female Japanese rock!

I'm a casual fan of Shonen Knife but a dyed in the wool Ramones maniac. Always curious about Ramones covers/tributes.
This disc ROCKS!
The three members bring exactly the right level of fun & excitement to some of the Ramones' iconic punk rock anthems.
Basically, they turn it up to 11 and there's no doubt that they grew up listening to these songs.
I found myself grinning like a pinhead when I heard these versions of Sheena, Rockaway Beach, The KKK Took My Baby Away and many more.
Seriously, the Summer's almost around the corner and if you need some happy tunes done in a strange but wonderful way, you gotta get this disc. One, two, three, four...

Shonen Knife leader Naoko write in the liner notes to this album that the Ramones were here all-time idols and she decided to record a Ramones tribute album for Shonen Knife's 30th anniversary. There are thirteen Ramones songs covered here. The songs stick pretty closely to the Ramones original arrangements. This album sounds like Ramones songs sung by women with Japanese accents. Which isn't a bad thing.

I've liked Shonen Knife for a while so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw they put out a Ramones cover album.
The song selection is pretty much everything you would see on a standard Ramones greatest hits album and they perform the songs well.

I've always wanted to have my very own Shonen Knife album. I'm planning on getting more of them soon. This one is a fabulous tribute to Ramones, and features very well made covers of same said band. If you happen to like Shonen Knife & Ramones as well this is an incredible find.

It was great that SK really took the time to get that same studio feel the original songs had, including all the background noise for "We're a Happy Family." I think I like the End of the Century songs more than the Phil Spectrum versions. Too bad "I Wanna Be Sedated" was not here, but since they had already done that as a single we got to have another new one.

At 52, Naoko still kicks serious ass. Having Ritsuko and Emi with her just makes SK even better. The best Kawaii Punk band out there.
