BiS, also known as Brand-new idol Society, is a Japanese idol group originally founded in 2010 by Pour Lui and Watanabe Junnosuke. They were once dubbed “the most hated girl group in Japan” by VICE, before the idol unit disbanded in 2014, not before causing all kinds of havoc in the media with extreme music videos (particularly ‘My Ixxx’, ‘PPCC’ and ‘BiSimulation’) and outrageous magazine photoshoots.

They are considered the flagship group of WACK, and have gone through a variety of line-up changes since their formation (including a collaboration with Japanese noise outfit Hijokaidan).

MAMESHiBA NO TAiGUN, Japan’s quirky idol sensation, brings infectious energy and unique charm to the stage. Blending catchy pop tunes with eccentric performances, this dynamic group captivates with their playful spirit and irresistible hooks. Get ready for a fun-filled, unforgettable show that will leave you smiling and dancing!

This seven-strong group of troublemakers exploded on the Tokyo scene with their debut album ANAL SEX PENiS in 2021. At first the members refused to show their faces and hid behind masks until each one passed 20,000 followers on Twitter. Since then their videos have received over three million views on YouTube, including tracks such as ‘BOLLOCKS’, ‘A Song of Punk’ and latest single ‘I HATE U’. The group’s initials officially stand for “ANTi SOCiETY PUNKS” but many fans believe the group is really named after the title of their first album.
