Your Homicidols Weekender #358

I really did want to put together a post this week about what’s going on at Codomomental with KAQRIYOTERROR and the Not Secured, Loose Ends reboot but, I’ll be honest: at this point I’m as confused as every one else. As soon as I develop some lucid insight into the situation, I will be sure to articulate it to everyone. 

In the meantime, one thing did become crystal clear this week: the details of NEO JAPONISM’s debut US tour:

Your Homicidols Weekender #357

It was one of the more disorienting weeks in recent memory, at least in terms of chika idol news. We had KAQRIYOTERROR rebooting with 18 members and then Not Secured Loose Ends re-emerging with one (and maybe a backing band if the speculation on the Homicidols Discord server proves correct).  Fans of MIGMA SHELTER (which is just about everyone around these parts) were stunned by the surprise graduation announcement of their last remaining original member, but the most ground shaking news by far was word that WACK, after all these years, is finally coming overseas:

Your Homicidols Weekender #356

This was a weird week. I just felt out of sorts all week long which I think was primarily due to the realization that I have no plans on the horizon to see any future idol shows. After spending Labor Day weekend with Tokyo Psychopath at Saboten Con (check out our interview with them if you haven’t already done so), I have entered into a phase of post-idol depression that can probably only be alleviated by making arrangements to go see more idols. So, let’s see our upcoming travel options and try to sketch out some plans!!

Your Homicidols Weekender #355

I’m back at the controls of the Weekender after a brief vacation. A big, “Thank you!” to Papermaiden for taking the reins so I could enjoy Saboten Con with Tokyo Psychopath last weekend (look for our interview with the group to drop soon). I can tell you from first-hand experience that their American debut was a ton of fun and a big success.  It was an awesome weekend and I hope they come back soon.

Your Homicidols Weekender #354

It’s been another busy week in Idol, but it’s about to get busier!

This weekender is, once again, put together by trustee procrastinator Papermaiden, because our overlord Daemon is busy doing what he should do, having fun with Tokyo Psychopath this weekend! On that note, if you are at Saboten Con, come meet us (him)! He is giving the Killer Side of Idol panel on Saturday, September 2 at 11:30.
A rare chance to discuss idols in person!

Your Homicidols Weekender #353

I am back from my vacation and want to send out a special, “Thank you!” to Papermaiden for taking on Weekender duties while I slacked off in Mexico City. 

While I did get a little rest on my time off, I am ready for my next adventure, so it’s a good thing that Saboten Con is happening next weekend in Phoenix. This year’s chika idol guest is fashion punk unit, Tokyo Psychopath. If you are attending, be sure to snag your ticket to the VIP events put on by our friends at Chaotic Harmony. They always present some unique opportunities to interact with idols that you will not get anywhere else.

Your Homicidols Weekender #352

Daemon is traveling this week, so as to not break the impressive streak of 352 consecutive weekends, I’m in charge of the weekender this week! It’s been a rocky week, so click through for some happy news, less happy ones and, as always, good music

Your Homicidols Weekender #351

It’s been a rough year to be an alternative idol fan.  Zsasz are just the latest of Homicidols’ favorites to call it quits  one week after we learned of Minna no Kodomochan’s disbandment. The number of Homicidols A-list units who have disbanded or entered a state of indefinite hiatus in 2023 is pretty astounding: BiSH, Zenbu Kimi No Sei Da., SIPP, KAQRIYOTERROR, NELN, RILISREVERSE, DARE MO SHIRAINAI, CROSSNOESIS

And we still have four months of the year to go.

Welcome to weekender number 350. Hooray!

Every Saturday for 87 months or, to put it another way, 6.75 years, Homicidols has been delivering your weekly digest of alt, indie, and underground idol news and new releases. I was going to do something a bit special to mark the occasion but we have instead entered a period official mourning.  The news just boke yesterday: 

Homicidols favorite, two-time Corenamnet and three-time  Best of the Year award winner,  Minna no Kodomochan will be disbanding:

Your Homicidols Weekender #349

It’s the weekend! And I’m very tired, so I’m not going to do much for a preamble. I’m sure you’re here for the idol news anyway, so here goes:

MAD JAMIE made their international debut at NärCon in Sweden.
