Your Homicidols Weekender #384

Like many of you, I spent this past week living vicariously through Oomfs  attending WACK in the UK 2: Electric Boogaloo featuring ASP, GANG PARADE, and KiSS KiSS. This time, the opportunities for cheki were plentiful and an excellent time appears to have been had by all. 

At the end of the festivities it was announced that, this coming August 28th, London will be host to WACK in the UK 3: This Time it’s Personal.  In the third iteration, ASP will again be making an appearance alongside MAMESHiBA NO TAiGUN TONAi BOUSHO (a.k.a. MONSTERIDOL), and the long, long, long, long, long, long awaited Western debut of BiS.

Your Homicidols Weekender #382

It was a roller-coaster week in alt-idol. The biggest and most impactful event of the past few days was the announcement that MIGMA SHELTER, one of our most beloved units and winner of ten Homicidols Best of the Year awards,  would be suspending all activities on June 2nd. But before you drown in the melancholy details of that impending departure down in the Oshiloss Corner, bolster your emotional fortitude with the knowledge that good things also happened this week! For example:

Isiliel announced her US tour dates!

The Greatest Alternative Idol Choruses of All Time

Welcome to the first installment of our latest community project seeking to identify the top choruses, drops, breakdowns and hooks in alternative, indie, and underground idol. 

Here in chapter one, we are exploring the best choruses as identified by you, the readers of Homicidols dot com and, I must say, you all got great taste. It took forever to compile this post as these are some of the catchiest and most addictive tunes in idol. They can’t just be listened to once. Each entry took about five minutes to write and then two hours of bingeing the song over and over again.  These aren’t just phenomenal choruses. These are some of the best songs by some of the best artists in the genre.
