I’ve been looking forward to writing about MELONBATAKE A GO GO, the “IDOL from outer space”. Why is that? Well, for starters, the musical offering leans heavily on the horror/rockabilly genre; the outfits, complete with black eye masks and capes, give Soze, Run, Rukatma and Yuffie the appearance of crimefighters channeling “Badass”; and girls, who endearingly aren’t dance prodigies, look like a menace waiting to happen. MELONBATAKE A GO GO are genre idols through and through. I can definitely see getting caught up in the fun of such an outlandish concept. But, for all the cartoon imaging, the musical output for MELONBATAKE A GO GO (do I HAVE to capitalize it every time?) is serious rockabilly business. The drums boom on the backbeat while guitars jangle with an echo that quickly feels like a time machine. “SICK IDOLS” puts our costumed idols ina claustrophobic dance set that looks like my uncle’s basement in Wisconson. Part of me really wants to see the girls take the place apart in a histrionic rage. Black and white graveyard dolls round out the shooting schedule, but let’s be honest: the main thing we’re looking for here is the MELONBATAKE A GO GO playing their alter egos. “SICK IDOLS” will most currently make its appearance on MELONBATAKE A GO GO’s “Ikasuze 1.2.3!!” album” (with nationwide distribution?!) on January 23, 2019.
MELONBATAKE A GO GO is and “IDOL from outer space”. The cute and mischievous quartet came from the melon star in a far away galaxy.
