Even More Idol Circus Music? Yes and Please!

Life is full of surprises. Some make you poop your pants in terror; others make you pee your pants in glee. This falls somewhere in between because I’m not soiling myself, okay? I’m just excited.

Yes after well over a year of never, ever having live video of their performances available online, Bokura no Oyugi followed up those earlier entries with:


Terror quotient: Falling

That’s a little bit different than the last couple! This is more like if the Vandals were writing idol music. Or Modern Baseball, if you’d prefer a band that’s actually contemporary. Continue reading

It’s Time for More KIRAKIRA GERIRA!

Literally, because that’s the name of the song!


Thanks, Pure Idol Heart!

ICYMI Because I Sure Did: ‘World End Crisis’ Re-recording

So Zenkimi’s going to keep doing these late-night releases, huh? On the weekend. Why, it’s almost as if they’re prioritizing their domestic fanbase to maximize media impact in their largest market! And why not — their “Wagamama Shinsei Hominina” video is well on its way to being their most viewed ever.

Anyway, Zenkimi dropped their two-hour restricted window onto an updated version of “World End Crisis,” and you might dig that and so might the poor souls who find their way to idols through Google. I was very literally asleep when that happened, so John:

Well, here we are once again, ぜんぶ君のせいだ。 (Zenbu Kimi no Sei da.) is tossing us another bone. Here is the track World End Crisis re-recorded with the current lineup. I believe this is just a demo track due to the rawness of the mix. Anyway, it is a two hour window. Enjoy. Also, it seems that […]

The members and staff of Yukueshirezutsurezure are back in Japan after their successful tour:

BiSH Will Compel Me to Spend Money, Won’t They?

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.

What Did I Do to Deserve These Bokura no Oyugi Videos?

I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret: When you wake up in the morning and see that you have a DM on Twitter and it’s from Phillter and the preview is just the “Sent a link“, you’re probably about to get something really cool.

I mean that title to be nuanced, by the way.* One, I feel like I’m not good enough for these gifts from Bokura no Oyugi; on the other hand, what crimes did I commit that would justify having this mass-media blasted into my consciousness? Maybe call it delightful pain, I don’t know.

The terror clown idols who have now spent several days as my absolute personal obsession on three different occasions, the literal stuff of nightmarish carnival hellscapes getting caught making out with some easily impressionable doe-eyed idol candidate behind the calliope. They really only ever release stuff in the same month as a blue moon or something, so these are an absolute treat to get.

“Suicide Story”!:

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 19: Gratitude

The idols known as Not Secured, Loose Ends, who hit Canada like a ton of terrifyingly elegant nightmare bricks over the past week, have headed back to the cozy confines of Nippon. But they had the nicest exchange on the way out:

It’s like a “See you!” but of a completely different sort. Tsurezure, you’re good. Continue reading

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 18: Denouement

It is with a bittersweet heart that I join the rest of North America in bidding Yukueshirezutsurezure adieu here at the end of their tour across Canada. In a week’s time, they no doubt made a massive impression, and good for them, because in a world in which even the altier side of idol has become oversaturated with derivative and copycat acts, Not Secured, Loose Ends remains a unique little light that deserves to be fed until it’s a raging inferno that engulfs all that comes across it.

Ahem. Did you catch them in Vancouver?

And did you meet this weirdo?
