Top 3 Indies Videos 11/25/17 – 50 Kaitenz (Jpn), Pale Lips, Pip Blom, Dirty Fences!

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:

#3) Pale Lips – Queen of Spades

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:

#2) Pip Blom – Babies Are A Lie

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).

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 (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.

TOP 3 VIDEOS for MAY 25, 2015! And the Japanese Beatles? The Neatbeats!

We’re back for the Top 3 Videos for May 25, 2015! The Top 3 Indies artists videos for the week!

Today’s first band, the Dirty Fences, are a charming lot from Brooklyn New York. Consequence of Sound says, “Brooklyn outfit Dirty Fences’ debut full-length, Too High To Kross, is an unabashed throwback to ’70s punk rock. Aping straight from The Stooges and Ramones, Dirty Fences fly along on fuzzy riffs and fast drums …

#3) DIRTY FENCES – Judy (Don’t Go)  (

Nexy up is a band that we debuted on the Top 3 Videos Weekend Special Edition on May 22, 2015. It’s Motobunny!

Rusty Knuckle writes:

“The Motobunny band members come from established rock acts, including The Love Me Nots, The Seeds, The Woolly Bandits, Zero Zero, Tongue, DeCry, The White Demons, and The Sonic Thrills. They have all performed extensively in the US, Europe, Canada and Australia, including performances with X, Iggy Pop, The Damned, The Dirtbombs, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, New York Dolls and Franz Ferdinand (as well as) official SXSW showcases, and two features in Fender official promotional videos. Motobunny band members’ past and current rock projects have been reviewed in SPIN, Little Steven’s “The Coolest Song in The World.”

#2) Motobunny – Lets Go Out (

Next up is another band that debuted on my radio show many months ago (PLEASE COME LIKE MY RADIO FB! This week’s #1 is Darlia. I think these guys are going to be huge.

Wikipedia says:

“Darlia is a British rock band from Blackpool. Formed in 2013 by former schoolmates Nathan Day and Jack Bentham, along with Dave Williams. The band have toured supporting Gerard Way and The Wombats, played Glastonbury Festival and Reading Festival, as well as being part of the NME Awards Tour 2015.”

#1) Darlia – Queen Of Hearts (

Finally! Today’s freebie. Today’s giveaway is from one of my very favorite Japanese Rock Bands, The Neatbeats. This band is about to celebrate 20 years of rocking Japan as well as annual tours of Europe. One friend asked me to describe the Neatbeats in just a few words and I told them, “The Japanese Beatles” and that’s a massive compliment. These guys are the real deal; no AutoTune, no digital equipment; everything done analogue in their own studio filled with 40 and 50 year old antique equipment. I know, I’ve been there and have seen it with my own eyes! Check them and you’ll see too; these guys are hot!

オマケ:The Neatbeats – Twistin’ Time With You (

Well, that’s it for this week! See you next time. Keep rocking!
