IDOL NOISE
Screaming genius: An artist's impression of the BiS Kaidan essence. (Check bottom for credits)

Ladies and gentlemen, be upstanding for the world's first 'Idol noise band', the truly glorious BiS Kaidan.


Bored of the same old crud on the radio?

Walkman ate your favourite tape again?

Well, worry not because have we got a right royal treat to share with you today!


THE WEIRDEST BAND IN THE WORLD
Yes, that's right, because thanks to a spot of cybernautic serendipity following the posting of our recent Cardiacs article, we can now strongly advise you, yes YOU, our cherished and beloved readers, to get yourself over to The Weirdest Band in the World website and have a random rummage round their joyous trove of jewels.

We did and we soon discovered a shedtonne of gems from all round the globe, including Winny Puhh, Thomas Truax and Petunia-Liebling MacPumpkin to name but three.

And that's not even mentioning Anklepants and his animatronic cock nose.


GENIUS FROM JAPAN
However, while we admittedly did leave a few stones strategically unturned for future visits, the band that impressed us the most was, without any shadow of a doubt, the fan-flippin'-nutjob-tastic BiS Kaidan from Japan.

Now, at this point, I could go on about these purveyors of the finest 'Idol noise' in the world, rattling on about how they formed and what they've released and the like, but instead I'll leave that up to the folks at The Weirdest Band in the World as they know far more about it than I do.

So don't delay, click this link today.

But first, though, whack up the speakers and watch the following BiS Kaidan concert footage.

Then just try to tell me it ain't sheer bloody genius because it is.

It damn well is.

Man, I love Japan.




The above vid is embedded here on the tune-tastic Rake & Herald from DAX -Space Shower Digital Archives X-'s YouTube channel, which you can check out here. Anyway, whatever you do, make sure your pay The Weirdest Band in the World a visit. It's bloody excellent and needless to say it's now been added to our Links page. Top stuff indeed.
