We Review Things: Screaming Sixties | “Zetsu”

Zetsu is an 18-track epic from two of the greatest warriors in chika idol.  Since forming in 2014, Montero and Kai of Zekkyosuru 60 Do, aka Screaming Sixties, have driven enough miles to circumnavigate the globe twice while performing approximately 300 gigs a year. And that isn’t hyperbole.

The next time you find yourself in Japan you can be certain that, somewhere, Screaming Sixties are performing a show and you need to get to whatever city they’re playing in because that’s why they made Shinkansen.

Before I get into the review itself, I want to make sure I don’t bury the lede: This is an essential album that you need to purchase immediately!

If you have any thoughts of picking up Zetsu (and you should), you need to open the website of your Japanese music retailer of choice and order it today.

That was a while ago, but now, finally, we get this cruel tease:

Here’s That Screaming Sixties Collaboration We Were Warned About

Collaborations are one of the things that make idols fun — whether it’s your favorites mixing it up with other idols or taking the stage with a band, you know that you’re getting something both familiar and unique at the same time.

Last year’s Collaboration of the Year winners (well, half of them), Screaming Sixties, had warned us that they were going to be connecting with I love you Orchestra, and here are the results:

Thanks, Jul!

Zekkyou’s Getting Started on Repeating as Award Winners, I Think

This is a neat bit of news: Our very own 2016 Collaboration of the Year winners, Screaming Sixties (and their founders/friends in 6% Is Mine), are going to be putting out an album … with another band!

In the spring, with Zekkyou on lyrics and I love you Orchestra on music. I wonder if they mean “album” album or “we didn’t know how long it would be so just called it that for now” album. Continue reading
