Ahh, Malcolm Mask McLaren, you are so good at moving these releases out in little bunches. Just last week we had “Just Believe”; this time around, we get “like this sneakers,” which I’m sure is new to just about everybody except for you lucky dogs who were in Japan the last couple of months, and that title, I think I know what they’re saying, but I’m also having a lot of fun with it. Almost as much fun as the song! See how I did that?
And that, friends, is melodic hardcore. Up to and including that xylophone. Continue reading →
Doop-dee-doop, surfing around through Twitter … hello, what’s this?
Why, it’s high school idols in corpse paint playing with the tools of suicide! How uplifting!
Say hello to Naniwa Six Immortals of Poetry, or Naniwa Rokkasen, as they like to be called. This song is from their first single, “Don’t Die!,” which is coming up at the end of the month. How fitting! I mean, overall, the song and video aren’t nearly as bleak as things start off, but it definitely has that “I kill” feel to it, with the excluded girl still harboring some ill feelings.

These three videos are from their set at MUSIC CIRCUS over the weekend.
Clicking through doesn’t get you much closer to the download, as it’s not only on iTunes, but the dreaded Japanese iTunes that you have to bend over backwards to use. I, however, am such a nice guy that I reconfigured my iTunes a little while back and not only downloaded the song … Continue reading →
I feel like I’ve been giving PiGU a lot of love lately, but this is what happens when you’re active and fun. For instance, just a week ago we got to look at the MV for one of the tracks on their new maxi single, and it was pretty far from the expected, but that’s okay; the A-side or whatever is available on their website, too.
It’s the teaser they released late last week that should really get your attention.
No matter what you think it’s about, there’s always one thing that kind of ruins that outlook
But this is cool; so Yuhi did a solo set because I believe Rira had school stuff (oh, the perils of high school!). That she’s a really good singer is far from a secret, but seriously check this out: Continue reading →
