Gird Your Loins for Two More New GANG PARADE Songs

Another Friday, another pre-release from Barely Last for GANG PARADE. There was some panning going on after last week’s efforts; how do these ones stack up?

“テヲノバス” (Tewonobasu? Romajidesu rejects this!) sounds like another return-to-old-POP song; it’s inoffensive, and you might dig it if you’re particularly fond of electropop.

“don’t forget me not,” you I like more. It’s somewhere between standard idorock and a Pla2me song. I appreciate the guitars and that big ol’ chorus.

Also, if those embeds are displaying the album art for you, guess what? This is being billed as the four-piece GANG PARADE, so the ex-SiSers may not be participating in this one.

Here’s the track list:

sugar
crazy night
Barely Last
don’t forget me not
ISSIN ITTAI
QUEEN OF POP
テヲノバス
this is love song
WE ARE the IDOL
Happy Lucky Kirakira Lucky

I’m going to ask the indelicate question: POP PARADE has always been something that I stuck with due to association, but have we actually reached the point where they’re just not aligned — at all — with the general purpose of this site? They’re not even particularly alt-y at this point, not if they’re going to move away from their (possibly) short-lived denpa era.

I have no problem either way; if the feeling in the room is to keep up with them, that’s fine, as is the opposite. Just let me know if you have a thought on the matter.

    • Their catalog goes to some non-traditional places, but even in the beautiful era of P2m as a duo, when it seemed like nothing could go wrong, I don’t know if I would have thought of them as a “heavy idol” group. Is now a good time to ask why you don’t cover Maison book girl? I figured it was the same reason; their sound doesn’t suit the site as much, but you said a few days ago to “ask me later” 😛

      • Nail, head, more or less. I actually still entertain the notion of getting Sister Site created one of these days, and they’d be a headliner for it. I always had a really deliberate cross-pollination in mind, and once I started *not* including MBG, it got really hard to justify bringing them on board. Brand kind of thing.

  1. Also, that’s the cover of the album… I guess it went to the printers before their SiSters joined. Or is their presence in the group a secret shame? 😛
    Wait, hold up, their press photos still don’t have the new kids:

    nor have they updated the “Member” section of their website. Did I dream the whole SiS thing?
