I was being a little lazy on the updates about BiSH’s upcoming EP because reasons, and leave it to John to have the goods.
I have one issue with this: The re-recordings with the updated membership; how dare you write Hug Me out of that history?
Otherwise, I don’t buy a ton of idol stuff myself, but I’m all over this stash.
Here we are about one month away from the release of BiSH’s new offering. Oh, and does it sounds like a good one. I always get excited for new things from BiSH because they are always so good. So, lets take a look at what we have on offer this time.
Hot damn, you guys, this is good times. I used the occasion of BiSH’s announcing this show (with live broadcast!) to complain about their having been quiet for a while — as truly a First World problem as has ever existed — it was with a generally low expectation for anything really coming of it. That was stupid! Of course people were going to record it!
This sucker is worth settling in for; I’ve seen my share of BiSH lives over the past couple of years now, but this might be my personal favorite stage of theirs, starting off with a bunch of the songs of theirs that I hold in highest esteem.
Do forgive me for pulling a little WACK overload today, gang; it’s less my fault than an accident, and I’d ordinarily not be all over these couple of points for a regular post, but look: It’s been a minute since the last time we BiSHed! And now that I turn my gaze in their direction, hell, they’ll probably release a video on Friday or something.
Anyway! Much like their forebears/inspirations/sisters in BiS, they have a NICO NICO live come up, too, and in just a week:
I’m an idiot and accordingly stayed up to watch the WACK Exhibition on Niconico Douga like a crazy person, and I did it because I wanted there to be some kind of fireworks coming out of the nearly-a-week-long WACK auditions.
For once, I was not disappointed!
Here’s your very brief recap: BiSH is WACK’s crown jewel; and also completely heartless, because while everybody else was literally sobbing, they were horsing around; Kamiya Saki only exists for Watanabe to treat her like shit; if you ever wondered if massive nuclear reptilian kaiju had feelings, wonder no more. Oh and a whole bunch of other stuff related to the auditions and exhibition and aftermath after the jump. Continue reading →
With the trainwreck that is the WACK auditions, my first promise when I was handed the keys to Homicidols.com was to get in contact at WACK HQ and make sure Watanabe finally got what was coming to him. That smug git has tortured idols in the name of publicity long enough! It’s about time we showed this man some humility.
So I arranged a special event, hosted by Pour Lui herself, with some help from BiS, BiSH, Gang Parade, the one girl from SiS that’s currently in idol purgatory, the other WACK eliminations who are also in idol purgatory; all for the sole purpose of expressing their feelings towards old Junnosuke himself; with paddles.
Despite my reservations (and desire to do anything but idol for an evening), I let Kerrie talk me into watching the all-group WACK audition marathon that began last night, and I let Garry talk me into joining the chat, and I have no agency of my own apparently because I’m blaming others for my choices.
That being acknowledged, thanks guys. You only get so many chances in life to hear Aina the End “audition” with GANG PARADE/Pla2me’s “Plastic 2 Mercy”:
That’s literally the worst headline I’ve ever written; you’re welcome
With the Makuhari Messe show announced, you knew it would only be a matter of time for BiSH, now officially existing to shovel money into Avex’s gaping maw, to announce a new record to build on the steady success of “DEADMAN” and KiLLER BiSH and now “Promise the Star” and continue their inexorable rise to being big enough, but not staid enough, for Budokan.
My apologies, kiddos, for being a bad Maniac yesterday and not contributing much of anything, but I was dealing with some stuff and it just got to the point where posting anew wasn’t going to better anybody’s lives, so I decided to just shift the relevant stuff ahead a day.
BiSH’s Nirvana-themed tour final was yesterday, and at it they announced the biggest show in their history, and arguably for anybody in the WACK camp — they’re going to Makuhari Messe (Event Hall — see below0. That’s kind of a big deal. Continue reading →
A lot of you are going to be just as excited as I was to hear and see this (or as excited as a really nice friend and I were when listening to it yesterday); another lot of you are going to hate this so hard and I really wish I could see your faces!
