We’ve all heard idol groups mess around with ska before, from Hauptharmonie going hard with it to BiSH managing to sound almost like Operation Ivy for a second. So of course it there’s at least one legitimate ska idol project:
Update: Actually, from the comments:
the group’s (?) name is “Suki, Kirai, Aishiteru.” [I like you, I hate you, I love you]. i think they’d sound good with more members, so i guess it’s a good thing that they’re currently recruiting!
To get a better feel, here’s some recent live video:
Like, speaking of underground stuff, this is right in that morass. And it’s cool! I’m not a huge ska person myself, but I am a product of an era and everybody who was sentient for a while in the late 90s remembers when ska had its most recent moment in the sun (Third Wave, if I’m remembering it correctly). I say that because I feel pretty okay saying that this is a perfectly cromulent bit of ska given an idol varnish. Miyu fronts it well!
