Japan's Shonen Knife have a new one out called Super Group, and if anyone's ever earned that title, it's them: Though they've been in business for nearly 30 years, these hearty pop-punk ladies still sound as energized now as they did during their brief brush with mainstream success back in the post-Nirvana '90s. When I caught 'em at Maxwell's in 2005, I couldn't help but admire the enthusiasm with which they banged their heads. With Jeff: The Brotherhood and Girls at Dawn.
