Yes, Friends, Idol and Ska Can and Do Mix

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:

The idol’s name is Miyu, and the project is fittingly called … wait for it … 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!

They don’t have a ton of stuff online, mostly some videos on YouTube and some additional stuff on the project’s website. But hey, get your skankin’ shoes ready and have a fun-ass Monday.
