Tomorrow, Yukueshirezutsurezure drop what they are calling a “double-A-Side” single and, if you’ve caught the song previews, you understand the description. “Still Roaring” and “REDERA” are two of the best tracks we’ve heard from Not Secured, Loose Ends in a while.
On the eve of this double-barreled release, they have also given us a new MV.
Ska-punk Tsurezure? Yes please. Continue reading
Yukueshirezutsurezure launched a two-hour preview of their latest song, REDERA. The music, per usual, is composed by syva, but the lyrics this time around are courtesy of MilcBoy and, man, it’s some good stuff.
If you missed the two-hour window, you can count on us to hook you up with a permalink. Continue reading
It’s been a while since I did one of these — let’s see if I remember the formula.
I mentioned these upcoming solo songs from the … I was going to say “newbies” in Not Secured, Loose Ends, but it is now quite true that nobody is “new” anymore, per se, and that really only Komachi is truly a group veteran, so I say instead members of Not Secured, Loose Ends, which they’ll be employing in their nationwide one-man tour, and which had better include the recently-mysteriously absent Komachi, but that’s a topic for a post we hope to never have to write, so instead let’s listen to one of those songs, which is now available under the terms of what I like to call the Codomomental Special!
Two hours, yes, and that time is already dwindling, but this is Homicidols Dot Com and making archives accessible is something that I like to do, so: Continue reading
Such philosophical quandaries are not for the faint of heart, nor for the enterprising fancy idol blogger to contemplate too dang hard because these Codomomental previews blink back out of existence just as soon as they appear. We can deal with existential questions later!
For now, this morning brings us a preview track from Yukueshirezutsurezure’s upcoming album of remixes and re-recordings and all that jazz. Which I think I didn’t know about! That’ll happen when you disappear for a couple of weeks. But fun, I’m glad that’s happening. Take a good cue from a good Zenkimi thing. Anyway, your song:
Two hours are fake, yada yada. Continue reading
Yukueshirezutsurezure will be dropping their uncharacteristically upbeat single, “ssixth”, this coming Wednesday, July 3rd. To prepare us for this imminent release, these barefoot angels of yami kawaii blessed us with a chilling MV that inspired dueling interpretations around the Homicidols press room.
In it, Mei Yui Mei and the adorable Kotetsu portray gleeful bullies documenting their torment of a passive Takara. Left battered and restrained, Takara is rescued(?) by opportunistic predator or compassionate fellow victim Komachi. This is left a bit ambiguous in the blood spattered end as is their final fate. Continue reading
Not Secured, Loose Ends have announced that “ssixth”, the group’s sixth single, will be released on July 3rd and, for some reason, the world suddenly feels like a better place.
I was going to say something else, perhaps about the album art, but thoughts are strangely difficult to put together… Continue reading
When the Idol Known in English as Not Secured, Loose Ends But Still at Home as Yukueshirezutsurezure Yeah I Can Still Type It teased out a noontime Sunday something yesterday, one could have been forgiven for thinking the worst. In a year’s time, two of the group’s most stalwart members had departed, a ton of previous momentum lost, and while fans have embraced the new order no matter how bitter their tears, I think disappointment is something that we’ve just come to expect from this powerfully underrated outfit.
And instead, thank heavens, it was the MV for their latest “Odd eye” single and not only is that a huge relief, but what a showing out of the new lineup:
Hey, it’s only been a few days since Not Secured, Loose Ends treated us to the B-side of their upcoming single “Odd eye”, and today we get the title track because somebody at Codomomental HQ must still be seething over last year’s Corenament upset and aiming to set things right. The only logical explanation, in fact! So like click through, understanding that the official link is only good for slightly less than two hours from the second that this publishes:
But you know that things live forever after the flip! Continue reading
Hey hey, it’s a song preview (and official title of their new single) from Not Secured, Loose Ends / Yukueshirezutsurezure, who not that long ago seemed poised to take the world by storm but are now getting ready for a new life sans their long-time lead, Shidare, and with more newness in the lineup than you can shake a stick at.
Let’s get down to business:
Two hours, they say. And to that we say, after the jump! Continue reading
The Cyclone is a small black box theater in a Shibuya basement which, according to the posters it uses for wallpaper, has played host to gigs by just about everyone over the past 20 years, including Cthonic, Crossfaith, Abigail Williams and every chika idol unit you’ve ever cared about. This past Saturday, it also hosted Yukueshirezutsurezure’s Emergency One Man Live, the emergency being Futamaruya Shidare’s sudden exit from the group.
The Cyclone’s capacity is 300, which seems to have been determined not by some safety conscious fire marshal, but in response to a challenge to see how many people one could stuff into the space, shoulder-to-shoulder, wall-to-wall.
