#3) Starcrawler – Let Her Be:

At #2 is my favorite new band. They are called Amyl and the Sniffers and they are from Australia. This band is going to be the big hit success of 2018. They are about to make a huge announcement that will literally drop your jaw. I’ve been playing them EVERY WEEK on my FM radio show in Japan, “The Mike Rogers Show” on InterFM 897 in Tokyo and Radio Neo in Nagoya 79.5. (Please come Like my FB page!) This is an earlier track of Amyl & the Sniffers. I think this is the best female fronted punk band since Joan Jett or X-Ray Specs.

Don’t be the last one to like their FB page:

#2) Amyl and The Sniffers – Pleasure Forever:

I have a real treat for you at #1! The LEGENDARY Duncan Reid! Duncan “Kid” Reid was an original member of the London Power/Pop band, the Boys. Wikipedia says: “The Boys are an English punk rock/power pop band formed in London in 1976. Members of the band had previously played in other groups, including London SS and Hollywood Brats.”

So Duncan Reid is back and causing trouble and we LOVE it! His new band is called “Duncan Reid and the Big Heads” and their newest album is called, “Bombs Away!”
