Top 3 Indies Videos Jan. 20, 2018 – Elmo Weber, Amyl & the Sniffers, Starcrawler!

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown for Jan. 20, 2018!

First up is an DJ/artist who was introduced to us by Marc Platt who runs the Radio Indie Alliance as well as the radio show/promotion known as Radio Candy. The artist’s name is Elmo Weber. Elmo lives in the Ultra-cool Hollywood area of Los Angeles somewhere near the corner of Bedlam and Squalor Blvd.  Not much is know about this mysterious man and his enigmatic ways but I can tell you one thing, he makes the most awesome mashups I’ve ever heard. Today’s track is an unthinkable mashup of the 1958 Hollywood movie version of the musical, “South Pacific” …and Led Zeppelin…. Yes. You read correctly.

I played this on my new radio show, The Mike Rogers Show (Please come Like our Facebook) and the reaction was incredible. The best reaction from the listeners in at least 5 years. People were going nuts on Facebook and Twitter (Follow on Twitter) asking where they can get this track. It is already a legendary track on FM radio in Japan. Play it loud.

3) Elmo Weber – Bali Hai Immigrant Song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0Y1pIAVMAw

At #2 is this year’s #1 export from Down Under: Amyl & The Sniffers. I love this band. This is the best female fronted punk band since X-Ray Spex! They have tons of cool tracks at their Bandcamp page: https://amylandthesniffers.bandcamp.com/

Today, we have something hot off the presses from their stylish label name “Pissfart Records.” This band is going places folks! Amyl and the Sniffers are gonna be huge!

Here’s their FB page. Go “Like” it. https://www.facebook.com/amylandthesniffers/

#2) Amyl and the Sniffers – I’m Not a Loser (teaser) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeqBgtPncEg

At #1 three weeks in a row is Starcrawler. Their debut CD just came out yesterday!

Starcrawler are coming to Japan 3/7 (Wed) O-nest in Shibuya, 3/8 (Thu) Nagoya @ Huck Finn,  3/9 (Fri) Osaka @ Conpass, 3/10(Sat) Kyoto @ Metro. Tickets are available here: WWW.BEATINK.COM

Top 3 Indies Videos Jan. 6, 2018 – Starcrawler, The Chats, The Cambodian Space Project!

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown and our first of the new year! Happy New Year! Today we have my recent fave three Indies bands for the week of Jan. 6, 2018!

First up are four guys who say they are “Pub Punk” and a “shed rock band from SUNNY COAST 4573” This is awesome and reminds me of the guts of late 1970s punk from Los Angeles.

Here is there Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/thechatsband/

#3) The Chats – Smoko https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j58V2vC9EPc

Next up is a band that has been getting me lots of rave comments, like, “Rogers! Where do you find this bizarre-assed shit?” or “This is fucking great! I love it!” Yes. It’s the mighty Cambodian Space Project! Their bio states: “COSMIC CROSS-CULTURE RENDEZVOUS FEATURING SPACE TRIPPERS FROM VARIOUS PLANETS PREPARING A MISSION TO BEAM ITS UNIQUE MIX OF SPACE ROCK, SURF, REGGAE, DUB, KHMER SURIN, CAMBODIAN ROCK PSYCHEDELICA OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD AND INTO ANOTHER…” (sic). This is one of my favorite “new” bands. I hear that Iggy Pop really digs them big time too and is pushing the hell outta the band on his radio show.

Here’s their Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/The-Cambodian-Space-Project-102538263132453/

#2) The Cambodian Space Project – He’s Not There https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDIvQN9j754

Click here to view video at Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDIvQN9j754

At this week’s #1 is a band that I debuted on Japanese FM radio a LONG time ago! and has been aired on my radio show and this countdown many many times. They are Starcrawler from Los Angeles! Their bio says, “We will kill you.” So what more could you ask?

Starcrawler are coming to Japan 3/7 (Wed) O-nest in Shibuya, 3/8 (Thu) Nagoya @ Huck Finn,  3/9 (Fri) Osaka @ Conpass, 3/10(Sat) Kyoto @ Metro. Tickets are available here: WWW.BEATINK.COM
