A bunch of fun things happened at once, so you want the news? Here’s all of the news! We’ve got new BiS, new MAMESHiBA, new ASP and some new GO TO THE BEDS and PARADISES members for ya! It’s a very WACK Friday indeed!
Oh good lord, it is happening again. This year’s WACK AUDiTiON CAMP ended in a resounding success: new members for GO TO THE BEDS, PARADISES and WAgg but in addition to that, we have an entire group of bondage-clad identityless idols who need YOUR help to be freed from their uh… bondage.
Say hello to ASP, ANAL SEX PENiS!
Had to do it to ’em!
So you all likely saw on Wednesday that the re-done OG of OGs — and therefore not OG at all, but somehow one of the best representatives of the OG’s brand since the OG was still the OG — BiS dropped the official lead track from their brand, shiny new upcoming second EP, and I don’t want to put more time into it because this is going to be a “song good” post and I’m running out of ways to pad the word count!

It’s not often we cover something other than idols here because unsurprisingly, this is an idol blog! Kind of a no brainer. But occasionally there is something that has that driving special something behind it – so without further ado let’s get to know Her knuckle, from Hanako, formerly “that girl Muropanako from BiS”!
So yesterday, to coincide with the release of their Propaganda to PROPAGANDA fan-voted best-of album, BiS dropped a new MV (for the lone original cut on the record, IIRC). How exciting! Given the track record of the group since being re-rebooted sans any formal relationship to its past save for name, logo and producer, it deservedly warranted some real buzz and a lot of eager clicks. Maybe we didn’t quite get what we expected, and I’ll come right out and say that I didn’t even understand (at first) what I did get, but it’s very nice and you should spend some time with it if you haven’t already, including a repeat view or two if you know what’s good for you:
I think a lot of people have been generally optimistic, albeit somewhat apprehensive to totally give in, when it comes to New BiS. I’ve personally been very willing to embrace them on their own terms (I dig the music quite a bit, after all), though whether I could always take them seriously as a thing called “BiS” has nagged at me. And so far, the release of ANTi CONFORMiST SUPERSTAR has followed that pattern perfectly, with perfectly solid music that I’d happily accept from just about any other idol, but this weird feeling that it’s just not BiS.
And then today, to commemorate the release of the EP, they drop the “full, 5-hour version” of the MV for “CURTAiN CALL”, which is exactly what it sounds like. It’s five hours (well, like 5:02:22) of “CURTAiN CALL” on loop, interminably repeated until the arbitrarily selected interval of time had been reached, the members singing and dancing with surprisingly little flagging the entire time. Just:
Hit play, then mark the point at which you get tired of the song … and then imagine how the BiS members felt at the same time
We’re in a new age – an age where we’re finally able to listen to new BiS releases and the good folks at WACK and Revolver Records have blessed us with an early streaming release!
Who wants to waste time reading an introductory paragraph? Go stream the new BiS! The last release we got out here was “I can’t say NO!!!!!” in 2017!
You’re one of the most legendary idol performers to grace the stage and everything is going perfectly and then your group disbands. So next, you’re one of the most legendary idol performers to grace the stage and everything is going perfectly and then your band disbands. So after that, you’re one of the most legendary idol performers to grace the stage and everything is going perfectly then you lose a diet challenge and leave your group. AND THEN you’re one of the most legendary idol performers to grace the stage and everything is going perfectly but then your group disbands. So finally, you say fuck it and decided to make your own damn group.
Everyone say “HALLO PIGGS”!
Is this the longest downtime between albums in idol history? Seriously, we’ve been waiting for 10 years!
Today the sequel to Pour Lui’s original solo album “Minna no Pour Lui” aptly titled “Minna no Pour Lui II” drops and oh boy was it worth the decade long wait.
As you can see we have a full double album here! Eight brand new songs and a second disc of re-recordings from the original Minna no Pour Lui.
The initial sound is what you’d expect from a WACK and SCRAMBLES production – it’s solid alt-rock that makes you want to slam your head back and forth, with opening track “I’m in love” featuring some guitarwork that wouldn’t go out of place on an Iron Maiden album. Pour Lui would kill Run to the Hills but could Bruce Dickinson do THIS? No, because he can’t speak Japanese.
