Billie Idle, Late Night TV, Sure Thing

I wanted to get this out before I forgot about it (again), so do forgive its somewhat random nature, but check it! Billie Idle make an appearance on The NIGHT, which isn’t new for them, but this is probably the first time that I’ve seen (this much) video from it:

When Senpai Notices: Billie Idle Loves Your Dance Videos

Man, this is just proof positive that we really are the best fans.

Ashley shared this in the Idolmetal group, and I was going to make a little bit of a deal out of that, but then this happened:

The Billie Idle Double Album Experience

Any time that Billie Idle goes more than three months without announcing a new release, I start to wonder what’s wrong. We just crossed that barrier in a post-bi bi bi bi bi world, so the requisite announcement teaser meant either “album” or “member revolt,” and here we are:

April 26! Two albums! Continue reading

This Billie Idle Blog Post Scared the Crap out of Me

It is the Official Policy of Homicidols.com that First Summer Uika is divinity in human form. If she wants to punch you in the face, you let her, because what a blessing that would be. If you kicks you in the knee, you thank her. When Billie Idle official’s Twitter publishes her blog post titled “something beginning and end something,” you run to the nearest translating device and/or cartoonishly large bottle of rat poison, because news is great but bad news is terrible.

Go ahead and click through, and use the translator if you like; we’ll talk details after the jump. Continue reading

Monday Match Game: Billie Idle vs. Billy Idol

Welcome back to the Monday Match Game! Last week, in a runaway win for Aina the End, we had a decisive divide between folks with different levels of exposure to the scene — LOW-INFORMATION VOTERS SWUNG THE ELECTION! Either way, fun.

This week! It’s a whole lot of punk up in here. Old punk. Punk from the 80s old punk. Punk that your parents (and maybe you!) bopped to old punk. Punk that just so happens to also sound great coming from idols in 2016!

In this corner, impossibly prolific not-idol punks extraordinaire, friends of Pharrell and post-BiS fan favorites Billie Idle; in this, uh, other corner, the misguided soundtrack to so many proms, weddings and makings-of-babies Billy Idol. Two will enter, but only one will leave and get to continue to use some variation of their homophonic names! Continue reading

I Haven’t Mentioned Billie Idle in Three Days, for Shame

Ever since the rather epic bit of news that hit late Thursday/Friday, which itself was roughly the end of the the hottest Billie Idle streak in the history of Homicidols.com, it’s felt like, okay, now we can all take a minute to relax and move on to other idols.

Nope! In fact, it’s starting to feel like Billie Idle are having themselves a moment.

Let’s see. Well, there’s that whole Pharrell thing. And getting play on magazine covers:

Punk up Wednesday with ‘Nakisou Sunday’

Its release was probably just a formality, a matter of “when” rather than “if” after they pre-released the track on iTunes a couple of weeks ago, but here’s Billie Idle’s MV for “Nakisou Sunday”:

So old-school! Continue reading

I’m Promoting This Billie Idle Show Because I Feel Like It

I’ve been feeling Billie Idle a-plenty lately, largely because they’re putting a fairly quiet summer behind them and prepping for another album release. One song from it is already out, and we may as well all just have a nice little dose of throwback punk rock idols on a boring-ass Tuesday.

These three videos are from their set at MUSIC CIRCUS over the weekend.


I think these are in order
