It’s Top 3 Video time! The top 3 Indies artist’s videos chosen by me and given airplay on our FM radio show in Japan, “WTF?” (What the Funday?) (Please come “Like” our FB page: https://www.facebook.com/WhattheFunday76.1?ref=hl)
Before we start, I have to give a Hat Tip to my friend, Christopher Jack in Kyushu, Japan (that’s the southernmost island). Christopher has been turning me onto lots of cool music recently (like some of today’s countdown!) Christopher is in the band the Routes. We have been playing the Routes constantly recently on this countdown and on the radio show. Check out last week’s recommendation by the Routes right here: The Routes – Do What’s Right By You (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4iVLUIHDZYc)
OK. Let’s go! First up today, I’d like to introduce you to a man who must have escaped the lunatic asylum (No, not the same one I was in!) His name is The Reverend Beat-man Zeller. He is a Swiss musician, DJ and record company owner. He performs as a one-man band, as the leader of psychobilly band, The Monsters, and with other bands, in a style described as primitive rock and roll and as “gospel blues trash.”
I figure this guy must be dangerous, but if you just keep your hands away from his mouth, you’ll be fine.
#3) The Monsters – Blow Um Mau Mau https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zs7CQBHyo3Y
Next is a band that, well, hell I don’t know, I think they are from Portugal or something. It says they are from Lisbon on their FB page… (See? There’s a Lisbon in Portugal and another one in Ohio, USA – look for the freeway exit!) The Dirty Coal Train are a Garage, Post Punk, Blues band that features old testament bass, exorcised guitar, devil drums and preaching. The Dirty Coal Train Bandcamp page is worth a few chuckles too: (http://dirtycoaltrain.bandcamp.com/)
At #1 this week are the Subways. The Subways are an English rock band from Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire who have been around for ten years now, since 2005. This is their latest single that just came out.
#1) The Subways – Good Times https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJfQMLnFhvI
Finally, today’s freebie is a japanese band that’s been around for a long time and they are called, the Mackshow. My artist and designer extraordinaire friend, Takebo (Akinori Takeda), loves them! I saw the Mackshow at the “Rock N Roll Summit” in Shibuya last week and they were fucking great!

Well, hope you enjoyed the madness this week. See you next week!
