Title: (Group) BiSH
Post by: Rezar on September 11, 2015, 01:16:14 PM
BiSH
(Brand-new Idol SHiT)

(http://i.imgur.com/YbZLUm1.jpg)


Formation:

BiSH was initially announced in January of 2015 with the idea to begin BiS again, and auditions began that month in order to find members.

After the audition process the completed lineup was announced in March, and members Yukako Love Deluxe, Sen to Chihiro Chicchi, Aina The End, Hug Me and Momoko Gumi Company were revealed to the public. The members' faces were obscured with black contact lenses and could not be revealed until they each attained 4,444 followers on Twitter. Their first song "Spark", from the album "Brand-new idol SHiT", was released through the music site Ototoy as a free download: first as a demo version with vocals by their manager, and then the finished version came one week later.

Background

Aina

She moved to Tokyo wanting to be a dancer, and ended up making the group PARALLEL (they sound pretty good to me)

PARALLEL - Look at me!! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FCV4wDVF6Y)

PARALLEL Blog (yes apparently they still exist) (http://ameblo.jp/parallel5/)

At the same time (from what I can tell) she did some R&B/Rap with some dude Click for garbage! (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHnvPMOdCuuJa58ERWscJtw/videos)

Her youtube channel means we can tell her age since in the most recent video she is listed as being 19 on December of 2014 which means she's 20 now.

So they played "Nerve" today at the "Summer of Demons" thing, makes me happy :)

Not sure if some of the former members of BiS that were there joined in (Pour Lui, Megumon and Uika)

You forgot to mention Nozoshan was also there since she's in BILLE IDLE with Uipon. Really wanted to go to that but, it's in freaking Aomori (the northernmost tip of Honshu) and the timetable ensured that a lot of similar groups would be on stage at the same time!

Aina did a bunch of different projects before BiSH. Chihiro was in Tsuyogari Sensation (強がりセンセーション) and Hug Mii used to work at Dear Stage, according to some other sources. No idea about Lingling or Atsuko but, seems like Momoko is the only original member with no previous experience.

I assumed that but I didn't see any pics of her.

Looks like it did indeed happen at Idol Koushien! Chihiro right next to Tsuyogari Sensation (her former group)!

She doesn't seem to think much before speaking, not sure that's a good thing in Japan.

Btw. before they ever played live she also said in an interview that people going to handshake events were pathetic, before she was reminded that she would have to participate in those.

Would have thought a major label would have picked them up before a new release.
Title: Re: (Group) BiSH
Post by: mixedmedia on October 05, 2015, 02:00:16 AM
After seeing groups like Baseball Girls (the ones that went to Japan Expo in Paris, not the cute ones), Akamaru Dash, Pottya, etc. go major as soon as they appeared, I don't think it's completely up to popularity. After seeing Upga and Negicco go for years and still not go major, there definitely have to be some other factors at play.

At the very least, they spend the money to make some proper music videos and design unique costumes.

Will the new outfits be military themed or be actual metal jackets?

Very cute video. That footage of them when they were little kids is precious. I don't remember seeing an idol video quite like it.

I also like the song.

Actually BiS have primal which is similar...... except it's not cute.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKnFnhoXiCU

Don't get me wrong because I like BiSH but this goes to show that they are the harmless cute repackaged version of BiS.

(trigger warning for iamcrazymike there's smoking in this video)
Title: Re: (Group) BiSH
Post by: iamcrazymike on November 21, 2015, 12:11:06 PM
I'm pretty sure smoking is the least disturbing thing in the video for Primal . . .

Of course BiSH is harmless, they don't have the spiked baseball bats. :roll:

Not bad but really they have way too many ballads already.
Title: Re: (Group) BiSH
Post by: iamcrazymike on December 10, 2015, 02:23:59 PM
Technically what songs of theirs counts as a ballad because I think I imagine something completely different when I think of ballads . . .
Title: Re: (Group) BiSH
Post by: Rezar on December 10, 2015, 03:21:52 PM
Power Ballads then, again I'm not saying they are bad but I'm thinking of a live situation and you really don't want too many of those type of songs.
Title: Re: (Group) BiSH

I think this is one of my problems with BiSH - pretty much all their songs are ballads...

That's a great picture. Glad they used it for the album cover.

I made an effort not to listen to all the new songs posted. I would rather be surprised when I get the album next month.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TunsBW4GOU

This has been mentioned before but I don't really like that they're singing over the album's vocal line. That's not what I want to see when I watch a live show. The singing should be live even if it doesn't come out perfectly. In Passcode's one-man, the singing is pretty rough during most of the show but I still prefer it because you can really hear them sing their hearts out.

They redid it presumably to include vocals from the two new girls. Honestly, it sounds pretty much identical, ok... "very close", to the first song.

The only way that could have been more epic would be if they were able to cast R. Lee Ermey, who played the character in Full Metal Jacket that the drill sergeant in the video is based on. Of if some of them got blown up and it was revealed that they were Terminators!

It's not surprising since BiS used to use a lot of well known rock band art in their shirts.

With ONE OK ROCK fans ignorantly blasting Stevie Wonder for singing "To Feel the Fire" (a song he wrote decades ago!) on a coffee commercial because they thought he was copying ONE OK ROCK (who covered it), I doubt many people in Japan would know who RUSH is.

^ Surprisingly that does look really good.  Is this after the lifting ban, cuz looks like it and looks better for it.

Maybe I'll pop along to one of their release events or some of the 24 hr release event thing, if I have time.

edit: WTF the live DVD version of the single costs 5,400 yen... fuck that...

A live DVD usually costs anywhere from 2,500 to 5,000 yen so think of the single as a bonus? They have cheaper versions including the CD-only one. I'd be more inclined if it was a Blu-ray but still, getting to see that live in more than crappy streaming resolution...

^ Haven't watched it, but the song seems like my standard reaction to most of the songs BiSH put out videos to - a bit dull and slow/ballady, rather than a rocky upbeat song. Still it sounds quite pleasant as is.

I haven't bothered to listen to their new album either, but keep on listening to the Zepp Tokyo live I posted a couple of posts above. It's really good, even watched it a few times. I, too, think they should sing live more. Their best bits seem to be when they are all screaming semi-randomly. Not sure I really like their whole choreo style, but they are quite memorable, so I seem to be getting into it/them more.
Title: Re: (Group) BiSH
Post by: Rezar on September 10, 2016, 01:53:18 PM
Listened to the album and overall I'm disappointed.

The first track is not new, it's "deadman" and it's one of BiSH best, the second song is really good as well and the last song is good, and for me that's it - "idol is SHiT" is not bad but it irks me that sounds like a botched version of "Idol is dead" by BiS (I assume that's intentional).

Way too many slow/mid-tempo songs that drag on, "Stairway to me" which unsurprisingly is based on "Stairway to heaven" is the worst example..... yaaaaaaawn!

I've always liked it when PV's would have a mini drama as part of the song; besides it gives lots of young actresses
their first roles before they move on to roles like 'younger sister' and 'student in class 3c" in tv series....

But seeing a clip of BiSH live is definitely a chance to see the members
putting on a great show....thanks Jul3 san!

I'm still obsessed with Orchestra, though. Here's a nice live version:

To give an explaining caption - this is a live version of the song "Orchestra" from their tour final concert, at Hibiya Yaon, 2016/10/08



I still love this song, probably my favourite idol song from the 2nd half of 2016. This version is funny, cuz, they seem to sing live, and have a live string section, but why only strings, and not drums etc, when they drums are a large part of the song? The video, like a lot of live BiSH videos, reminds me a lot of AKB and Babyraids... and the glowstick moment is a very anime idol moment. I really like listening to this group, and hearing the stories from the fans who go to every show, but this kinda thing makes me think they are the opposite kindof group to the kindof thing I am into... (maybe hard to explain, but...)

Someone has translated an interesting interview with Aina from this "Idol and Read" magazine.

The google doc link is in the translator's tweet: https://twitter.com/halfassed_subs/status/782937679960748033

She talks a lot about her childhood and life before BiSH.

The translator has translated articles from other members, too, which I haven't read, which you can find on the above twitter.

BiSH have announced that member Aina the End will be receiving surgery to remove vocal cord nodules.

There will be a free live called iN THE END where Aina will perform before undergoing surgery. She will be making a return for the group’s NEVERMiND TOUR next year.

Considering Matsukuma Kenta writes most/all of their songs as well as songs for BiS and GANG PARADE, their songs having a similar sound isn't that surprising. Matsukuma and Watanabe were also the main team for "Orchestra".

Haven't decided which day to go to the in-store mini-lives (Thursday/Saturday - Shibuya, Friday - Shinjuku) but at this point, I would probably just go to see them in person (handshake/cheki) since I doubt I'll be able to get close enough to see them on stage.

There's also this preview of all the new songs on the release:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQMn4sEPoi8

Not keen on any, but the best bit is that the 2CD version is basically a greatest hits release:

DISC 1
1   GiANT KiLLERS
2   Marionette
3   Nothing.
4   社会のルール
5   VOMiT SONG
DISC 2
1   スパーク
2   BiSH- 星が瞬く夜に-
3   MONSTERS
4   サラバかな
5   ぴらぴろ
6   OTNK
7   beautiful さ
8   ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE
9   DEADMAN
10   オーケストラ
11   本当本気
12   プロミスザスター

However, most of the songs, apart from the newer ones like Orchestra and Promise The Star, have re-recorded vocals for the current member line-up, which I have heard people saying aren't great.
