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!

I Love This New SAKA-SAMA Song

I will happily put myself down on the record as being a fan of SAKA-SAMA. Part of the Trash-Up!! stable that always has such glorious acts associated with it, they’re in a really cool creative churn with everybody from Dots to Avandoned and various points beyond and in between.

I will also admit to almost always just skipping the latest live videos that make their way onto the official Trash-Up!! channel on YouTube, which is a great channel, but which also has gone through serious runs of publishing the same few songs over and over again because idol.

Yesterday was different, though, and “Mirrorical Underground” is great! Continue reading

100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 20: Touchdown

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

Though I like how Komachi’s “back in Japan” tweet is Canadian flags:

You’ll Melt More Is Just That Damn Good

Brian tagged me in an RT yesterday, and I didn’t get what it meant for a little while, so again I’m like a day behind the really good stuff, but this is really, really good stuff.

You’ll Melt More!, who are certifiably amazing, are releasing a new mini-album and a DVD from their Loneliness and Counterattack tour:

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”!:

Your Homicidols Weekender #28

Happy weekend, friends! Have you been thinking about fun alternatives for idol MV sets? We need more fun!

This was a hell of a week, though, wasn’t it? Of course the highlight was Papermaiden’s interview with Not Secured, Loose Ends in Toronto, and Daemon’s eyewitness reporting on their first appearance on North American shores. I’m still a little sore that I missed out, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles sometimes. Besides, details are soon to come on another beloved-by-the-community group venturing forth to lands outside of Japan, and I for one can’t friggin’ wait to know the specifics (about which I’m deliberately being coy because you probably know what I’m talking about but I only feel like posting once it’s all lined up).

Of course many things happened and didn’t get included here on the sacred pages of Homicidols.com, so it’s time to look back!

Don’t You Ever Get Tired of This, Maniac?

Did you want the details on Hauptharmonie’s final concert?

That’s sad. I’m sad. They didn’t even send me a preview of the last album. Boo hiss. Continue reading

Oh, Living Dead I Dolls. Oh!

Sorry, guys, that’s probably not the best reaction to LDID’s little teaser that they put out at noon (Japan noon!) ahead of their show tonight, and I’d have preferred to have something cute (clever-cute, not kawaii-cute) to say about it, but this sucker just keeps growing and flying and then:

Gracious! Continue reading

Let’s Watch HAMIDASYSTEM

I thought I’d finally go back to some of the other bits of video of lesser-known idols to flesh out today’s offerings, gang, so: Remember HAMIDASYSTEM? I don’t want to oversell their heaviness or anything, but we had some fun with them last time, and they put out this little bit of video recently. I felt like maybe it’d be a good idea to visit with them again!

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?
