Matsubros crush on stage, says the song they're going to sing is for their best friend (which is their Matsu) & hopes he likes it, sings "My Best Friend's Hot" by The DollyRots. Matsubros reaction? (It's a cute song :3c)
Osomatsu: He would be dying of happiness. He would probably join in singing and dancing to the song
Karamatsu: He would be very impressed by their boldness and how smooth they are. He would have a huge smile plastered on his face the rest of the night
Choromatsu: He would be an embarrassed mess. He would be so happy, especially since they were calling him cute in such a grand way
Ichimatsu: He would get really shy and blushy. Having someone treat him like this actually brings a tear to his eye
Jyushimatsu: Wild and excited dancing! He would be so excited and boy does he have a great way of showing it
Todomatsu: He would be blushing as he hummed along to the song. This cute action is hella cute to him
“This is my favorite song,” my fingers had turned the knob to the right before I finished. I immediately closed my eyes and angsty teenager jammed to Dollyrots ‘17’, air drumming and mouthing all the words. His laugh broke through the second chorus.
“This is the WORST song ever.” I hissed at him through clenched teeth, never missing a beat of the next verse. He sat back, watching me and chuckling under his breath until the last note rang out. I rolled my thumb over the volume and looked sharply at him.
“Go ahead.” I waved my hand flippantly to motion his move.
“That song was dreadful. How do you even listen to this stuff?” Another laugh from him. Another glare from me. “Total rubbish,” I thought my eyes would flip backwards from rolling so far into my head. “But I love it.” I stopped mid eye roll and let my quizzical expression speak for me. “I love the way you love it. The way you listen to it, the smile it brings to your face. Especially the way your eyes sparkle and dance. I will never understand why it makes you happy or how you can actually enjoy it but I will forever think of you dancing and love this song.”
Pop geeks unite! The Dollyrots, who have been flying the Power Pop flag proudly
for well over a decade now, offer a celebratory look at their entire career
with this killer new live set comprised of songs from their earliest days as
part of the Kiss Or Kill scene (don’t miss the killer documentary In Heaven There
Is No Beer: The Kiss Or Kill Music Scene from writer/director David Palamaro,
while we’re discussing such things!) to their most recent album, ‘Barefoot
& Pregnant’. ‘Family Vacation’ offers up a beautifully shot visual keepsake
on DVD along with an accompanying audio companion on CD, capturing the band –
vocalist/bassist Kelly Ogden, guitarist/vocalist Luis Cabezas, and drummer
Rikki Styxx – in high-octane, ass-kicking action at The Roxy in Hollywood,
California, in September 2015. The band is in top form throughout the 11-song
set, delivering the goods and clearly having a damn good time. I give The
Dollyrots 50 Impaler Bonus Points for turning in a concert DVD that clocks in
at under 40 minutes – making it a true candidate for repeated viewings. For
those concerned with the concept of ‘more bang for your buck’, have no fear…
the DVD is topped off with a full-length commentary track, a crazy-fun
behind-the-scenes tour documentary that adds roughly 45 more minutes of viewing
pleasure, and guest appearances from Bowling For Soup, all of The Dollyrots’
former drummers, and lots more. The audio companion sounds amazing, with
dynamite versions of ‘Because I’m Awesome’, ‘Jackie Chan’, ‘My Best Friend’s
Hot’, ‘Twist Me To The Left’, Melanie’s ‘Brand New Key’, and 6 other Power Pop
gems. If you missed the pre-order on PledgeMusic (shame on you!), the package
is available at indie record stores and online now. The Impaler
@thedollyrots were beyond amazing today. I honestly didn’t think it was possible to beat been on stage with BFS in the past but I think getting to watch The Dollyrots and Bowling For Soup from the side easily beats it. #thedollyrots #bowlingforsoup #leeds #o2academy #punkrock
