And while my nose is straight up my own butt with the Corenament, releases continue to be announced and excitement continues to be built. John on two releases that are sure to be loud and satisfying.
Well, looks like EiT PARK RECORDS/Disk Union is going to send a couple more releases our way. These are a couple I have been waiting for, since it has been a while for each group. First we have a mini-album from 偶想Drop entitled “Painfully violent”. I am sure most of you have seen it on […]
You guys might be aware of EXTREME IDOL TERROR, the fairly regular get-together of … I don’t need to explain that, do I? There are particulars, but they’re not tremendously important in this context. What is important is that EIT and SELL NU IDOL?, another semi-regular showcase that also needs very little explanation, had a joint show recently, and I figured that the Corenament being upon us would be a good enough reason to share some sets from it.
So here’s Sugartrap!
And of course Guso Drop!
Imagine the agonizing choices that lay before you, amigos!
You guys, you may have noticed that I’m kind of an idiot sometimes*, so trust me when I say that yeah, I published this yesterday by accident because I somehow lost the ability to understand how time works. I did catch it before I ruined things for everybody; I did not catch it before Jul saw the thing and clicked and shared some very useful information that now I can incorporate into the post at the correct time!

Among all of the brutal graduations of 2016, the departure of Guso Drop’s Saki from the group she’d help make into the underground’s heavyweight champions was understandably a sad loss for fans (and poor Boss didn’t seem to be taking it well, either). The final live with the group’s long-time center was, of course, a very fun show, and it also brought out an old friend and the new guns.
You may or may not be aware that there’s this band, right, that’s a bunch of young women with bags over their heads who are supposedly related to Guso Drop in some way. SO MYSTERIOUS! But JUNKIE’S, yeah, to say that morbid curiosity alone could compel one to want to get a look, that’d be one of those understatement things.
There’s some sad face for Guso Drop on the horizon, as Saki’s graduation looms (but we do get the three new members!). The show, however, never stops going on, as this lyric sheet they shared on Twitter would indicate:
