So the past few weeks have been just incredibly busy with Day Job and various other affairs with Fiancee and the regular business here at Maniac Mansion, so I’ve been a terrible proprietor. Don’t think I haven’t been paying some attention, though; in fact, one could argue that I was actually trying to observe idol even more than usual because a person can really only spend so much mental energy monitoring chats in Zoom rooms before needing to waste time on other things. A Twitter feed, for instance. And it was in so doing that one reference led to another and finally to a name that was kind of familiar but I simply could not place. A new idol?
Not at all! In fact, a search of drafts showed that I had originally wanted to cover Fiore here (Twitter) ALL THE WAY BACK IN 2017 thanks to a referral from our old pal Pure Idol Heart. This is how you clear out a backlog!
What are you getting with Fiore? A little bit of lots of things, actually, which is basically the standard anymore. But at the basis is perfectly cromulent idorock that, depending on the particular song, gets add-ons via punk or idolcore or even the kinds of “sure why not some rapping and/or EDM” that’s all the rage these days.
They just released this EP a few weeks ago:
M1. Good by hello
M2. Raise your fist
M3. Hells claw
M4. Endless fantasia
M5. BRAND NEW WORLD

Tag yourself: I’m “Hell’s claw”
I love these outfits though
Here’s a big-ass live to enjoy:
I feel kind of badly for missing the boat on this group for so long but look forward to covering Fiore much more in the future!
