ASP Comes Through Your Front Door

We’re a highbrow publication, so the headline about the group called ANAL SEX PENiS was kept tasteful once again. So without further ado let’s get right into talking about those wild WACK girls who love to prove they’re anything but pusillanimous – this is “the MAN CALLiNG,” so you’d better answer!

Surprisingly Nice ASP

If you’d genuinely like to know the original title of this post, please see the footer

Definitely didn’t expect to get another ASP MV so in the wake of their debut album (now more than a full month old), but gift horses and mouths and all that, so of course I joined many among you in excitedly clicking that link when it dropped yesterday. And then, like many among you, I watched first in confusion and then rapt horror! Oh, and the song is a delicious and powerful anthem that I think we’re only going to grow to appreciate more and more over time!

ANAL SEX PENiS Gets Graphic

All right, I’ll admit to having been a skeptic about the latest WACK unit to emerge. ANAL SEX PENiS, or ASP as I prefer to call them because I’m not some prurience-obsessed teenager and I have to worry about how and where my website’s going to show up in various people’s Google results, really did feel like a stupid gimmick at first. Yes, we were willingly falling for an obvious ruse, as usual playing along with one Watanabe J. for the sake of getting to the bottom of whichever kind-of-inexplicable-but-no-doubt-lucrative-and-enviable game he was playing this time around, but the thing about falling for even obvious ruses is that you still went there and in the interests of intellectual honesty you have to admit to yourself that you did, in fact, let yourself believe if only for the briefest of moments, like a kid old enough to know better unironically hating the heel. I mean, read this. The line between truth and kayfabe is always clearly there somewhere, but whether you find it in the place where it really is as opposed to where you assume it to be, therein lies the trouble.

But anyway! As ASP emerged as a bona fide actual, regular-ol’ idol unit (name notwithstanding), it also became clear that they had the musical chops. And of course they did — WACK can be and usually is a lot of things, but musically not-good is not one of them. Yes there’s a template, and no we don’t call it Kentacore because it’s so wildly diverse, but good and enjoyable and undeniably punk-inspired if not outright so are all true things to say about the product, and those are perfectly fine bars to set, and then we can leave up to you the question of whether you like and want to listen to ANAL SEX PENiS.

Anyway! ASP’s first album is arriving, and they’ve been trickling out ever more music on Soundcloud as is the wont of new WACK units, and then yesterday they dropped their first MV, which is pretty much also the clearest multisensory view we’ve had of them yet: Continue reading

Some New ASP For Free

Homicidols are of course the most esteemed and respected idol publication online, so we’d never stoop so low to use clickbait headlines. In other words the staff wouldn’t let the author use “FREE ANAL SEX PENiS” as the title. But we do have free ASP songs for you guys! Really!

ASP Is Good Actually

Well color me happily surprised to see that WACK newest bowels-of-hell creation ANAL SEX PENiS decided to follow up the post-April Fool’s reveal of members’ crania last week with some music that better fits the, um, talent. Not that we didn’t all love hearing Jun and his friends half-key their way through a promising tune, of course, just that the recording felt like letting the cat halfway out of the bag, and then the photo reveal dropped all pretense of even having a bag in the first place.

Anyway, yeah, we now know that the members of ASP are not in fact weird bondage performers but are (probably) (mostly) (emphasis on the parentheses here) “normal” idols, and probably all women at that. The visuals are fairly clear! The voices here doubly so!

I do rather enjoy this “traditional” method of WACK reveal, from the playful mystery to the rollout with the kinds of songs that WACK traditionally specializes in, other than Kentacore:

That rocks faces, it does. The second song in the set is, of course, the OG recorded with actual members’ voices: Continue reading

Oh Lord, ASP Has Kind of Landed

As well-documented by Cal the other day, new WACK unit ANAL SEX PENIS was pre-unveiled at the close of the company’s annual audition/boot camp/torture center. You’ll get more out of the experience by reading the post, honestly. I don’t need to re-explain it. But in the intervening time, which is to say like two whole days, the group shot past the original Twitter follower goal set by one Mr. Watanabe Junnosuke, so the goal posts were moved and have since been surpassed again, and whether that has anything to do with this first first audio sample from ASP isn’t as important as the possibility that at some point the stupid masks will come off, literally and figuratively, and we’ll know if this is another EMPiRE situation or more of a SiS.

Anyway, first song, for what it’s worth: Continue reading
