Shonen Knife - Pretty Little Baka Guy + Live in Japan

Shonen Knife is basically the Japanese version of Cub. I freaking love Cub, so it stands to reason that I should be able to dig Shonen Knife as well.

Pretty Little Baka Guy is a good album, but it's a little frustrating not knowing which language the band is singing in. They switch from Japanese to English so quickly, and with such heavy accents that it's often hard to tell which is which. The Live in Japan material is pretty good as well, but some of it features some very poor recording quality. Other than that, this is some relentlessly cute Japanese girl rock.
