When it comes to following alt idols, there is nothing more exciting than seeing this message.
That message boils down to: We are recording.
Once again we are back with the best (only) English language podcast about Alternative Japanese Idol music on the internet! We chatted about the news of the week, some videos and I even think there might be a joke or two in there. We, Terry (Ramenshuriken), Garry (Idol is SHiT) and John (Straight From Japan) always have something entertaining to say, and it might even be informative.
Oh, we also did a give-away. That was super fun.

Oh boy, one of my favorites has an actual video out. I am so happy to see this. These four girls really put in a lot of work. And their producer over at Dual Eye Records really tries to craft the best songs for them, and he is a real great guy to boot. I really enjoyed this video, it has a solid place in the viewing rotation.
Living Dead I Dolls had a pretty good time on March 3rd at 新宿SAMURAI. Not only did they play with a great lineup including Hauptharmonie and Gokigen Teikoku but it was also Satomi Hanamomo’s birthday live (her birthday is actually March 5). Who wouldn’t want to have a birthday live with those Gokigen girls, am I right?
Living Dead I Dolls performed a new song tonight and it has been announced that they will be releasing a second demo in March. It sounds like it will contain three tracks. I still have not been able to get my hands on the first one yet.

Ok, this is starting to get a little crazy. Already we have had two videos from Living Dead I Dolls. Now we get two more. I know there was some difficulty in uploading the videos to Youtube last night, but I didn’t think there were going to be four in total.
I have been waiting and waiting to see Living Dead I Dolls in a video. Now I get to and so do you. This is all along with the news reported earlier with other stuff they are doing. So far this day is starting of with a bang. Now if I can just get my hands on one of those venue only CDs.
As I was getting in bed, you know old people need naps, this tweet popped up. and a brief exchange occurred.
Lo and behold, upon waking there was a sweet new video. Dang it, these girls do have some energy. I love surprises.

In typical alt-idol fashion, the girls of Living Dead I Dolls are being very coy about what they are up to recently. It seems that something is in the works but it is a little ambiguous at the moment. Now lets see if we can piece this together what is going on, or perhaps it will still be up in the air. This is gonna be tweet heavy, with photos and all that stuff.
The writer/producer for Living Dead I Dolls has released the lyrics for songs off the debut single. The single is only available at lives (starting January 2nd) , and may be sold out by now.
Now, my Japanese is not good enough to even attempt a translation of song lyrics. So I can not help with that. The writer/producer has been kind enough to give a little information about each set of lyrics.
I am hoping to someday be able to find copy…… fingers crossed.
