One of these days, I’m going to make Q’ulle converts of more of you guys; between their slick-dancing live shows, world of individual talent and diverse songwriting, they’re one of the groups that can turn in a killer rock song and then follow it up with a clubby idol ballad sweet enough to rot your teeth.
Anyway, while you’re in the process of coming around and understanding why I encourage everybody to download “ALIVE/SAISEIRON,” you can prep for Q’ulle’s next big step forward. Building on last year’s massive OVER THE HOPE Asia tour and epic finale that saw them announce a new, major label (Avex sub avex rhythmzone), they have their next single coming in April:
The upstart queens of idorock, Q’ulle, are thankfully still alive (get it?) after the little bit of drama back in the fall, and they’re promoting their big “evolution” show on Jan. 7 using the only means that ever makes sense — by DVD video digest!

You guys know me: I love me some Q’ulle. We even get to breathe a sign of relief that what could have been an imminent demise is, instead, a new beginning. That paints their recently released second album, Over the Hope, into a completely different kind of context; rather than be the death rattle of a fast-rising, talent-out-the-wazoo rock idol unit, it’s just the end of a chapter in what we can hope will be a significant career.
Today’s a light one, gang, because life doesn’t slow down just because you’d like it to (I am listening to Darkthrone, and I’d like for things to be quite slow indeed!). BUT I’d made a point to check up on Q’ulle’s Other Side of HOPE Asian tour finale that happened tonight, seeing as how there was some uncertainty as to just what would happen with Q’ulle at this point, new album aside.
Whether they remain a living, breathing entity called Q’ulle for much longer is, I think, still in question, but Q’ulle (and its apparently cast-iron members) are plunging ahead with the release of their second album.
It is the Official Policy of Homicidols.com that many voices can and should contribute to the discovery of idols and their music. Among those voices whose contributions are good and cool is Garry MacKenzie, owner and operator of the very good Idol Is Shit. This review is his.
You all may recall the twoposts covering Q’ulle‘s most recent music videos. You may also recall that Q’ulle, who are good, are good, and you therefore like them and appreciate their music and want to buy it. And as if you needed any more convincing, Garry believes that their just-released single, “Alive,” is more than up to par. Get started here, then visit his site for the rest. Continue reading →
