So apparently this is Maiko Kinjyo (My Complex of Academy/Fate Gear) singing - do we know if she’s going to be the singer at Metal Matsuri?

To the best of my knowledge, they haven't announced who will be singing, and LIPSTICK are still technically without a singer in the band.

I don't wish to be rude (I like LIPSTICK), but those vocals sounded a mite sour to me....

I like Maiko better than K-KA, or Sindy although I think she is more of a match for My Complex of Academy songs. Her version of Destrose's Fade Out is my favorite performance by her though. I was really impressed at Nico though and I hope to see her perform with Lipstick again. Nico and Sakae get along very well as can be seen on their Twitter feeds. I think Nico is pretty busy with her voice acting schedule though for a regular spot with either Lipstick or Fate Gear. Interesting that Sindy (Mayu) doesn't follow Sally or Sakae on Twitter after her abrupt departure so don't expect to see her performing with them at Metal Matsuri.

I highly suspect Maiko will be at Metal Matsuri though, and while not announced I'm pretty sure someone has been chosen by now. Gdscei probably knows (since he was the first person who I know who would try to make so many of Lipstick's lives) but might not be at liberty to confirm. I also know that the official statement is that there will most likely not be any special session (collaborations) during Metal Matsuri, but I would think if there were to be even one it would be Maiko Kinjyo guesting at the end of the Fate Gear set. Maiko has been the primary singer for Fate Gear's Headless Goddess tour, and the band has gotten Maki Oyama to join in the end of the set when Fate Gear has had 2man concerts with Maki.

I know as much as you on this topic. I think you're right that they're probably going with Maiko. Right now, I like Nico more than Maiko. But I've also not seen Maiko live yet, and Lipstick's records are not that great of a way to translate their music, live they're much better. So I can't judge too much until I've seen Maiko live.

Am I right in thinking this group have only been on the girls rock/metal bandwagon since that drummer with the mad hair had to quit?

I don't follow them closely enough to be sure about that, but I used to not see Lipstick as part of the "girls metal" scene at all. I always thought they were a hardrock/heavy metal band that coincidentally featured a bunch of women rather than a part of that scene, but please correct me if I'm wrong.
If you can't get enough of me giving my opinions without having asked for it, you can read more of it on my Kevy Metal weblog.

That used to be the case yeah, but Vengelesa is right, after Syun (the drummer) left, they did try and fit into the girls metal scene. Now they call themselves "Japanese female band" or just girls rock band.

Makes me wonder if Sally got the idea to re-position the band from her stint in Zettai Club, once they knew Syun wasn't coming back.

I first heard of Lipstick when they applied for Cute girls Live~ROAD TO NAONのYAON. This is Show-ya/Masterworks event for new bands to compete for the spot as the opening act for Naon no Yaon women's rock festival. Unsigned bands like Fleufleu, Hysteric Lolita, Bridear, Crea, and Mary's Blood have won the contest and got to play on the big stage before Naon. Lipstick made the finalist and were my favorite girls band on the list the year they aplied.

So not sure if Lipstick considered themselves a girls rock band when they formed, but I think they have been for the last few couple of years.
