Super8Bit, a new female punk rock trio, will be debuting with an EP on August 16.
Apparently they have toured Japan already (under a different name of Shorty Cat) and won some awards already such as "Best Rookie of the Month" and even performed at the 2011 Incheon Pentaport Rock Festival.
I was excited to hear this as I can appreciate punk rock. But then I was disappointed when I saw this:
This is one of the rare times where I wish the teaser was wrong. So very wrong.
Silly girls. I get that you are trying to be "edgy" and "cool", but that is not how you put on make-up. You can maybe look like that the next morning, but you do not start the night by looking like that. Also, you in the middle with the bubble gum all over your face? That is gross. And upon first glance, it definitely did not look like that was gum plastered all over your face. You will now have to smear peanut butter all over to get that off (or risk ripping out your eyelashes).
I also do not mean to judge their looks from a measly 44 second teaser, and maybe it is just the badly applied make-up, but their eyes kind of scare me. They look like they are high on drugs with those dark raccoon bags and baggy eyelids, looking straight into your soul. Hungry for something...
Also, I realize that the man drumming in the back is not part of the group, but when I look at him, for some reason I think of poor Janghyun in Sunny Hill. He has such a beautiful voice, but is shafted by all the women as he "does not fit the song". BS. I bet he composed the songs moreso than the others, so he can probably "fit" it damn well if he wanted. Damn women, always putting themselves first. How selfish. They should consider themselves lucky that all 4 of them are not making him sandwiches everyday as they promote. They should be happy he did not make their comeback, "Midnight Kitchen Snack"!
But I digress.
Finally, on an interview, they were asked about their band's name. The girls revealed, "When time goes by, everything changes, but we didn’t want to be something that changed. In order to retain the memories of our youth, we were reminded of the older 8-bit games and thus named ourselves ‘Super 8 Bit’".
OH you girls. You are so silly thinking you have an actual say in what you do from your entrainment company. Enjoy what little control you have over your music now. Soon you will be selling out your punk rock image and electric guitars for higher heels and shorter skirts. No one can stay punk rock forever, right Avril Lavigne?
