Comrades at King Records invited us to see Japanese idol group Momoiro Clover perform last Sunday which was to be the last time where all 6 members performed together - Akari Hayami (blue) is no longer a member of the group which has now been renamed "Momoiro CLover Z."

Venue was at Nakano Sunplaza. Saw a few shifty blokes trying to flog tickets.

Guy with a "Never Forget 4.10" T-Shirt. Akari-sans departure came as a shock to many fans.

Heard of but didn't really know too much about the girls until I started to work with King Records of late. Was the first time I saw them in action and like what I saw and heard! Plucked a few of my fave tunes that they performed and YouTubed them below. Have to warn you that these tunes may start to play repeatedly in your head - especially the chorus for "Hashire"

Hashire [走れ]

Zenryoku Shojo [全力少女]

Chai Maxx

Ikuze! Kaito Shojo [行くぜっ!怪盗少女 ]

Many moons ago, I used to listen to a load of idol music which helped me learn a load of Japanese. Artists and groups like Nishida Hikaru, Ribbon and SMAP (who are still around).
What idol groups are you listening to?
