Fresh from the family butchers, we have something big, long and meaty. That’s right, a full album from PIGGS!
PIGGS are dropping a new album just in time for Christmas. JUICYY, their first album since adding KINCHAN as a member, will be released on December 22nd.
Here’s a teaser:
The album will include 13 total tracks: six new tunes and seven re-recordings of previous songs with the current lineup. From the above preview, it sounds like the “JUICYY.ver” tracks are slightly new arrangements in addition to incorporating KINCHAN’s vocals. Continue reading
We’re not telling porkies here, the new PIGGS EP is probably the best you’ll hear before the year ends!
We have a resident PIGGSpert here at Homicidols Dot Com. That is Cal. Cal did not seem to be nearly as interested in this as I was, and I’m in a mood, so I’m writing about PIGGS now from the standpoint of a person who was almost completely out of the idol loop for most of the first half of the year, which is when PIGGS became a thing straight from the fertile mind of one Pour L. Lui. It is the privilege of ownership!
So yeah, PIGGS both announced a new thing and showed off a new thing yesterday, and I reiterate that it absolutely rocks, and I will also add that I’ve now played it through somewhere in the vicinity of 15 times, only a handful of them concurrent. It’s worth your time!
Gawd. Continue reading
Let church bells ring, let children sing, let wota shout “hooray!” Such revelry because Pour Lui is thirty years today!
Yes, today marks three decades since the birth of idol legend Pour Lui, a woman who, arguably, would herself give birth to the entire Alt-Idol™ genre, only out of her mouth instead of her, er, tummy. How shall you rejoice? Don’t worry chums, your wise and friendly Homicidols.com has 30 suggestions to relate of ways to feast and jubilate. And here they are.
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”!
This article was a bit delayed due to sickness, so sorry to all 99% of you who know about this by now!
Anyway, we got the solo album, time to see the group! Meet PIGGS:
(We knew Pour Lui was borrowing WACK resources for this, did that include the artist for the GANG PARADE split groups’ logos?)
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.
Pour Lui’s been so busy this 2020 that she didn’t even have the time to show up for most of her own music video shoot, poor thing.
Now has probably never been a better time to be a BiS fan with a soundcloud account. Their current iteration has just about finished posting almost their entire album on there, but even if you’re of that portion of fans who gave up after the BiSmageddon of 2020, Soundcloud seems is where ex-members are flocking to for their new endeavors. In particular, Pour Lui and Aya Eightprince have been very active this week, with Pour Lui teasing her new solo album and Aya just kind of doing whatever she feels like.
Starting with Pour Lui, who announced her second solo album at the start of the year, only for it to get overshadowed by more tragic news that same day, and then something bigger and potentially more confusing later that week. Pour Lui being Pour Lui though, she’s not going to be forgotten about that easy, and posted two tracks from the upcoming Minna no Pour Lui II yesterday:
