I'll be curious about these!!! I love their 2013 version of KI KA I DA! so I will be exciting to hear what these will be. Having 2013 versions means they'll play them at concerts again, too, so I love that!!

the video looks like the late years of perfume where they are burned out and do cocaine to keep the buzz going

Oh maaaaaan that video was pretty cool! It is a lot of noise but it does sound pretty awesome together. Love the girl's dresses too. The green dressed one almost made me think of Strong Machine 2.

Re: NEW EP "MEGA OVER DRIVE" (OUT 2013.10.09)

Haha Thank goodness I wasn't the only one who thought the green girl looked a lot like Strong Machine 2!
But hey, this was an awesome video, awesome song! I'm psyched about the new release now!!
Though I gotta admit, I think these songs will sound So much better with the guitars, at least just as a grungy back noise following the same bass chord throughout the lead song in particular.

Re: NEW EP "MEGA OVER DRIVE" (OUT 2013.10.09)

Amazing video...Green Girl's hair, and rythym definitely makes me think she IS Strong Machine 2 ...

Now, is it just me, or does Pink Girl seem like she could be Fumi? OK, hair is too short - but such things have not stopped Kyary Pamyu Pamyu from using excellent wigs to make a convincing long/short hair statement. So why couldn't the Fu-Fighter be Pink Girl?

Now, if Green Girl is SM2, and Pink Girl is Fumi, then who is Blue Girl?

By the way, I don't think the group shot of the band with the dancers proves or disproves anything because arguably anybody could be dolled up in those outfits and shades - who's to say the chicks in the group shot are the same ones who appeared in the video?

Re: NEW EP "MEGA OVER DRIVE" (OUT 2013.10.09)

Strong Machine 2 didn't mention anything about the PV on her blog. So sadly I am pretty sure it isn't her....... There's no way the red dressed girl is Fumi, either, because their faces are pretty different. Their noses and lips differ, in particular.

Ugh, I wish I had the dough to get this EP. Two anime conventions and rent make it not easy to get imported CDs........ sad

Re: NEW EP "MEGA OVER DRIVE" (OUT 2013.10.09)

I listend just to the audio samples. So there is nothing much to say about 45 seconds but "Exclamation!" sounds really odd. Marshmallow Head sounds like expected. So MEGA OVER DRIVE could be the best song on this EP. This "I My Me Mine" 2013 version could be the one we already heard from their Europe tour.

Re: NEW EP "MEGA OVER DRIVE" (OUT 2013.10.09)

Got my copy today. I assume the first pressing comes with a special lenticular "3D" version of the artwork as that's what I've got.

As for the songs. Mega Over Drive is pretty good. There's genuine conviction there and it's catchy. I like the video as well, a nice complete vision around this.

Exclamation is OK. Heavier than Mega Over Drive but retaining a similar feel. Very B-sidey, but in a good way.

Marshmallow Head is the mental song of the bunch it seems. Bits of Devo and B-52's all over it. Fumi's singing is great, again a nice confident song.

I My Me Mine 2013 and Baby Bias 2013 are OK. I don't really see the point of these as they're so close to the originals but sound inferior to me. The ending of I My Me Mine is funny though, but these sit alongside those other reworkings as being pure filler to me.

Overall though, pretty nice. I always prefer Polysics in the Mini-album/EP format.

Re: NEW EP "MEGA OVER DRIVE" (OUT 2013.10.09)

Thx for the first impression. It seems there is no digital buy available? Itunes or Amazon for Europe?

Re: NEW EP "MEGA OVER DRIVE" (OUT 2013.10.09)

Well this isn't bad. Title track is interesting but not sure if I actually like it. I don't hear Hiroyuki playing any guitar (?). Exclamation is kinda cool, but of the new tracks Marshmallow Head is the one that grabbed me on first listen. Then again, I'm usually a sucker for their math-rock stop/start songs.
As for the 2 remakes, I guess it comes down to whether you like what you hear or not. I My Me Mine is a somewhat successful rerecording (the arrangement hasn't changed). Of course, a kazoo will never replace Kayo's recorder, but I could hear them doing this live, and I think that's really what these remakes are all about - making them viable again for the band. Baby BIAS, on the other hand, sounds like I walked into a karaoke bar. There is a fragility to Kayo's vocal on the original, which offset the sugary music. Hiroyuki's "yeah! come on!" attitude (bless it) makes this version a little too Vengaboys.
