The Alternative Idol Podcast Ep. 5: Drollrum Please

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.

In the news this week

  • All of the fallout from the WACK auditions
  • Details of BABYMETAL’s upcoming summer tour of Japan
  • DEADLIFT LOLITA announce their first US appearance at Anime Midwest in Chicago
  • Broken By The Scream add a new member and announce their first one-man show
  • Zenbu Kimi no Sei da, GANG PARADE and BiSH offer up previews of their upcoming releases

We also share our thoughts on MVs from Living Dead I Dolls, Mistress, Hachimitsu★Koutei, BILLIE IDLE and Malcolm Mask McLaren.

Multiple audio formats available of all our podcasts at archive.org

We are now available on Stitcher, Pocket Cast and now on iTunes

Just watch 白雪姫症候群 (Snow White Syndrome) to see what I am talking about. Anyhow, enough with the blathering, lets get to it.
