ELECTRIC HEARTS and scramble scratch Really Really Really Hate Corona…

It’s been a while a since we last checked in on SHINDENTSU PRODUCTION, home agency of ELECTRIC HEARTS, the idols who broke onto the scene with paper bags on their heads and punk-pop songs in their hearts, and the now defunct scribble scritch, who might be gone, but left the world one very perfect pop […]


It pleases me to be joining the Team Homicidols ELECTRIC HEARTS Hype Train, a mere couple of months since the last time one of us got all doe-eyed about the gnarliest set of punk rock idols out of Osaka since the last most exciting thing to come out of that city’s incomparable scene, which honestly […]

More ELECTRIC HEARTS Than You Can Shake A Paper Bag At!

ELECTRIC HEARTS, the purveyors of “FANTASTIC PUNK IDOL FROM OSAKA” are rapidly finding a place in our hearts with their speedy lo-fi punk rock and cheeky style. Chris first brought them up last month and they instantly earned a place on Team Homicidols’ radar as a group to watch. It’s an interesting strategy to attempt […]

Your Homicidols Weekender #194

Good morning! Allow me to preface this Weekender by saying that it’s effectively the anti-Weekender; if I created this this 194 weeks ago as a way to give some recognition to more throwaway idol content, or to at least make mention of things we couldn’t get to, this week’s edition is a gross perversion of […]

Your Homicidols Weekender #185

Happy weekend my friends! I see #stayhome restrictions have loosened many places,  but I’m still writing from isolation so the weekends still blur into all the rest of the days. I also haven’t been able to manage any shipments form Japan for the last couple of months but, lucky for all of us, the artists […]

Your Homicidols Weekender #164

Good morning! Sweet holy crap, what a week in idol. New releases! Final lives! Lots of live action because now’s a great time to schedule things! It hasn’t all been great stuff, obviously, but it’s certainly a … highly typical way(?) to start the new year. Did you have a good New Year’s Eve? I […]

The Team Homicidols Best of 2019

I hope you all got a good kick out of seeing the community’s Best of 2019 yesterday — now we get extremely heavy-handed and drop the absolute knowledge bombs that are the Team Homicidols picks, which is way more interesting than when I used to just rag on you all. As you have no doubt […]

Your Homicidols Weekender #152

Hey folks, a little bit of a somber one this time because Japan — you know, the place and culture that makes this stuff we love happen — is getting absolutely assaulted by Typhoon Hagibis and there was apparently an earthquake in more or less the same area at the same time. Short of a […]
