The Weekly Quickie: Crazy Shampoo, Synk;yet, My Bacteria Heat Island

 Disbandments have struck once again.  This time it's CrazyShampoo.  They recently announced that they will be disbanding on May 18th following their oneman at Shibuya La.mama.  They will release one final album, as yet untitled, sometime in May.  The official statement released on the members' blogs gave no reasoning for the disbandment, just thanked the fans and staff and asked for their continued support.  We wish all the members luck in their future endeavors.

Good news from members of Sink;yet.  Bassist Shiori, who has been on hiatus since January for treatment of Hodgkins Lymphoma, is expected to make a full recovery and return to band activities in May.  A free oneman live will be held on May 12 at Ikeburkuro Cyber to commemorate the event as well as the release of their MV collection, [dimension of vision.]  You can find comments by the band and Shiori himself kindly translated by the folks at Visual Keios.

I love hearing about new bands!  Ex-Chemical Pictures vocalist, Tenten, has announced he's started something new.  It's called My Bacteria Heat Island.  Information is sparse at this point and their OHP is pretty bare, but you can find a preview video and a very mysterious visual.  Keep an eye on their official twitter for quick updates.

I want to end this week's Quickie with a shout out to the readers.  You guys are awesome and we couldn't do this without you.  By the way, how am I doing?  Let me know in the comments.  Got a hot tip and want to see it on the Quickie?  Hit me up on twitter

And that's the Quickie.  See you next week, my lovelies!
