It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown of the Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of Nov. 25, 2017!
First up are a group of four fab ladies from Montreal, Canada named Pale Lips. They say they are a “Bubblegum Punk/ Power Pop/ Rock n’ Roll” band and “Drippy mascara slopped rock n’ roll with sprinkles!” I believe this is their debut on our countdown but I expect we’re going to be seeing lots more of this hot band soon!
Here’s their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/palelips/
#3) Pale Lips – Queen of Spades https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w65d7sVlKzc
At #2 is another band to debut on our countdown today! They are Pip Blom from Amsterdam! I can’t recall how I stumbled upon this band but this is great! (And they are nice people, too!) Their bio states: “Never listen to people who want to change your music. With that advice from a fellow musician Amsterdam based Pip Blom (20)started making songs.”
Of course they have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pipblommusic/
#2) Pip Blom – Babies Are A Lie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xusKQJX12Z4
At #1 is a band from New York City that was introduced to us by the curator to the stars, Rin Ishioka! Thanks Rin! The band is the Dirty Fences. Their bio states: “New York City’s favorite hard-working band. Dirty Fences’ fast, catchy, street-level, rock n roll will LIGHT THE FIRE OF YOUR DESIRE.” The Dirty Fences also has one of my favorite videos of 2015, “Judy (Don’t Go)”

About Mike in Tokyo Rogers: Mike has been a professional music/TV/radio/anime-related program producer in Japan since the eighties. He began in the music business in 1977 as lead vocalist with the legendary Los Angeles Punk Band, “The Rotters” (Sit on My Face Stevie Nix.). As a university student, he was assistant to the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer (Rodney on the ROQ – KROQ Los Angeles from 1980 ~ 1981.) Mike was the first and only foreigner in Japanese history to become the General Manager of a major Japanese broadcasting station (TV Tokyo owned InterFM). Has produced a few smash hit programs (some real losers, too!) and several of Tokyo’s highest rated and most famous radio programs. A recent hit program was “The TV Show” (Set Program with “Ninja Slayer”) which, between April – Oct. 2015, garnered over 10 million viewers. He is currently producing and hosting “The Mike Rogers Show” every Sunday live on InterFM 89.7 in Tokyo and Radio Neo in Nagoya 79.5 and nationally broadcast on Radiko.jp (Internet radio). And his life’s dream is his just completed full-length motion picture, “Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock and Roll Ghost Story”which will be released by a major Japanese motion picture company and in theaters all across Japan in Autumn 2017.
