Get Your DEATH PARADE On

I can’t believe I’m encouraging this, and you shouldn’t believe that you’ll almost definitely spend longer than you ever thought you would watching this happen, but I’ll cop to morbid curiosity about exactly what GANG PARADE is being subjected to, and why, and what the outcome’s going to be.

ALL WEEKEND LONG (probably), check in here for:

  • Live video from the road!
  • Commentary, screen captures and goodness knows what on Twitter!
  • Ever-declining faith in humanity!

Yes! Continue reading

My Day’s Been Dragging, So Let’s Enjoy Some PiGU Sets

I don’t know if it’s because I got up really early and then late, or because I’m telecommuting and don’t have the usual “MANIAC COME HELP WITH THIS PLEASE” at work to distract me, but today feels like it needs to end at any time, and it’s still only noon.

So you know what can help with that? Some friggin’ PiGU, that’s what.

Shut up, Linkin Park: ‘iN THE END,’ It Matters a Little

Wanna hear a really annoying story? I had planned out and prepared to record the not-really-her-last-concert-please-all-the-gods iN THE END free live being held by BiSH while they go into temporary stasis (I dare not call it a hiatus) with Aina, owner of the most liquid nitro voice in idol, taking a break to recover from surgery to remove vocal chord nodules.

I was prepped, had everything open, had Niconico ready to go, got the video launched, started to record just as the lights came up in whatever venue they’re in and … I was out of free trial on the recording software and would only be able to record in two-minute chunks, and there was no way I was doing that at 5:30 a.m., not even for you guys.

Edit: Someone uploaded the whole thing!

So What Does uBu Sound Like, Anyway?

The young BiSer known as Peri Ubu kept coming up on Twitter the other night, and I was forced to admit to a certain plan for an upcoming Monday Match Game, and it got me to thinking, Hey, what’s uBu even been up to since that whole terrifying episode with the members leveling up?

Leave it to the vital @sbsk_weekend to provide:

Mistress. MAWA LOOP. Live.

There doesn’t seem to be all that much video available from MAWA LOOP’s big-ass idol festival over the weekend, but Mistress recorded their entire set, and we can be the lucky ducks to benefit. (Thanks to Pure Idol Heart for the find.)

The WiLD TRUMPS Are Dead; All Hail … What?

Regardless of the outcome of the U.S. presidential election, THE WiLD TRUMPS had slated themselves for a Nov. 26 live demolition, which they billed as a death and rebirth. I thought, hey, this is a spin-off from Aoyama St. Hachamecha High School, it’ll probably get a refresh because the angle will be kind of stale after the election (and weird if Trump wins!), but I bet not much changes and …

Well.

They actually streamed a good portion of what turned out to be the group’s last live on Periscope:

Make sure to stick through to the end (or skip there, whatever wets your whistle). Continue reading

Kick-start Your Week with Daidaidai

Daidaidai, the rather exciting new digital idolcore project from DEMON TAPES, joined DEEP GIRL as a supporting act at the We Are DEEP GIRL tour stop in Osaka last week, and this lucky duck recorded the entire thing and shared it with us because life can, in fact, be good:

I Don’t Always Use Dailymotion, But When I Do, It’s for Idol Subs

If you’re a regular in the Idolmetal group on Facebook, you’ve probably seen subtitled videos popping up recently. What a gift! Not only do the subs include romaji, but translated English, and for songs that you may have always wanted to know what the hell they’re about.

For instance, here’s a list of BiSH videos (live and not) with said public service, by poleosis, right at your fingertips:

Get Fired up for Sunday with Fruitpochette

Our man in Japan, Phillter (Remember Phillter? He remembers you!), passed on this heart-rendingly good live compilation of Fruitpochette covering some of their favorites, as posted to Shiori’s personal YouTube channel, which you should follow if you have any sense, ya goofs:

Fruitpochette had a terrible first 2/3 of 2016. Like, just terrible. But where they are now, with Zuma and Kyuri playing well together and obviously having a blast, I hope this is the beginning of a big leap forward. The talent is obvious, the quality is right on par, their sound is distinct … Continue reading
