Is This Curtains for BILLIE IDLE?

Just like how the double live album/Best Of compilation set my heart a patterin’, I think this latest announcement from BILLIE IDLE has all the ominous and so far none of the relief:

What Do You Guys Think of BILLIE IDLE’s ‘MY WAY’?

Of course, look at and listen to it if you haven’t already had a chance:

I’ll start: This is one of my favorite things they’ve ever done. Continue reading

I’m Breathing Easier Because of This BILLIE IDLE News

Man, was I glad to wake up to see this from BILLIE IDLE; in addition to just generally being awesome and on an absolute roll since last year’s membership difficulties, I admit again to having had trepidation on account of their most recent work being a Best Of / live double album. Such things are usually not harbingers of long stretches of continued growth and activity! One could be forgiven for thinking that they might disband!

But no, absolutely not, BILLIE IDLE will actually never die because no, they will not shut up.

Anyway, new single:

August 23. Promo tour starts about a month prior. Expect a July PV! Continue reading

And Now I Can’t Stop Hearing Billie Idle’s Latest; Fantastic

I was going to do something more typical for Thursday Hurtsday, but Billie Idle’s MV for “BYE-BYE” are going to go ahead and trump that so ha.

I really struggled to avoid titling this “BYE-BYE, Billie Idle” just to see what would happen, but I’m not that cruel

Go ahead. Say it. And then when you’re listening to it for the third straight time, you can shake your fist at my computer monitor in the impotent rage of a person who realizes that a hook has once again embedded itself into your brain, and you simply cannot remove Billie Idle from your consciousness no matter how stupid everything felt the first time. T-Palette Records thanks you for your inevitable purchases. Continue reading

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

Somebody Please Explain What I Just Watched

So:

Go ahead. I’ll wait

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
