It’s Top 3 Video time! The best of the Top 3 videos for June 5, 2016! Welcome friends!

First up is a punk band from Brazil… (I think). Not much information available from these guys… Even when I ask them. Their Soundcloud says: “Merging all the passion for the good ol’rock with the punk rock energy and the magic of heavy metal with a little bitof classic black metal school, the band sounds like an amazing endless partyimbued with liquor and beer in pubs around the world where people talk aboutfriendship, loyalty, respect, in addition to stories of gorgeous might women…”

I think you’ll laugh and you’ll like this…. Check out the drummer’s seat.

#2) Wendy James – Indigent Blues

At #1 is the Sloths…. What? The sixties band, the Sloths? Yep. Their Fb page says, “1965. Five boys, ages 15 to 17, stepped on stage of the famed PANDORA’S BOX on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip. THE SLOTHS were born. Most were students at Beverly Hills High School, others were dropouts. They rehearsed in their garages playing the music of the British bands that inspired them; The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, Them, The Who, as well as the American blues and rhythm & blues musicians who had inspired those groups; Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters, and John Lee Hooker. The band, with a few changes in the members, played virtually every venue in Hollywood; The Stratford, Sea Witch, The Hullabaloo, Hollywood Palladium, The Whiskey, Bito Lidos, and The Galaxy. They shared the bill with The Doors, Love, Iron Butterfly, The Seeds, and British icons Pink Floyd and The Animals. THE SLOTHS were approached by Impression Records and recorded two original songs; ‘MAKIN LOVE’ & ‘YOU MEAN EVERYTHING TO ME’. Taking their 45 to local radio stations themselves, they hoped to have it played. But ‘Makin’ Love’ was considered too controversial and ‘You Mean Everything To Me’ was only played on air once. By the end of Summer 1966, the group disbanded. Some returned to school, others dissolved into The May Wines, The Yellow Payges, TNT, The Kingbees, and Doug Yule’s Velvet Underground.” Go like their FB page:
