Top 3 Indies Videos 5/07/17! Jungles (Japan), pinksideofthemoon, The Coathangers, Skating Polly!

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown. The Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of May 6, 2017!

First up is Skating Polly. This is their 3rd time (I think) on the countdown. Rodney on the Roq plays them a lot. I think they are often too loud for WTF? on InterFM 897 on Sunday mornings…. But maybe not this particular song! Skating Polly Skating Pollywas formed in Oklahoma in 2009. The band consists of multi-instrumentalists Kelli Mayo  and Peyton Bighorse, who were 9 and 14 years old when the band formed. They are a Riot Grrrrl Indie Pop band. Here’s their Facebook page:

#3) Skating Polly – Louder In Outer Space

At #2 is a pinksideofthemoon…. Legendary producer and engineer Lee Popa and songstress Jolee Popa make up pinksideofthemoon and they hail from Portland, Oregon. Their FB page describes their music as, “Driven by electronic beats and grooving loops pinksideofthemoon mixes live guitars, bass, keyboards and synthesizers and covers them with a smooth coating of silky female vocals with Dub style echo and effects to create the pinksideofthemoon.”

Besides all that, pinksideofthemoon have been getting regular airplay on my weekly radio show, WTF? What the Funday? (Every Sunday 8 am ~ 11 am on InterFM 897) And they will be guests on the show tomorrow, Sunday, May 7, 2017! Here’s their FB page:


#2) pinksideofthemoon “Lost in Space” Remix by John Fryer “Don’t Let the Smile Fool You”

At #1 is a song that just came out yesterday. It’s the Coathangers. These girls are one of my favorite bands over the last year or so and this is at least 5 times that they’ve been on the countdown. They call themselves a “Yes! Wave!” band and they hail from Atlanta, Georgia. Their biography states: “The story goes that four young women decided to start a band for the sole purpose of being able to hang out and play parties. They weren’t going to let the fact that none of them knew how to play any instruments get in the way of their having a good time.”

Ha! I think they are awesome! Here’s their Facebook page:

#1) The Coathangers – Captain’s Dead

TODAY’S SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Is a band called “The Jungles.” They used to be called, Red Bacteria Vacuum. Or they still are? Who the hell knows? I heard they were now called, “The Jungles” but I can’t find much on a band with that name – duh! And there is no Facebook page for the Jungles (as far as I can see – If you know one, let me know!) But there is a page for Red Bacteria Vaccum! Anyway, the info is sketchy, but their bio says: “Red Bacteria Vacuum (レッドバクテリアバキューム) is an all-girl Japanese punk band from Osaka formed in 1998 consisting of Ikumi, Kassan, and Jasmine. The band relocated to Tokyo in 2000.”

Here’s their Facebook page:


That’s all for today! See you next week when we return to the Top 3 Indies Artist Videos Countdown. See ya! – Mike in Tokyo Rogers

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).

Here’s the Top 3 for the weekend of July 25, 2015!

1st up is a girl’s band from Tokyo! They are called the Red Bacteria Vacuum. Here’s their FB page.

#3) JUNGLES!!! [Red Bacteria Vacuum] “ROCK’N ROLL PARTY”

At #2 is Perrosky. Perrosky is a Chilean band formed by the brothers Alejandro and Álvaro Gómez, originally from the city of Copiapó, Chile. Their influences include rock and roll, folk and blues. Their newest was recorded, produced and mastered in New York by the modern rock’n’roll legend Jon Spencer.

#2) Perrosky – Diamantes

Rocket from Los Angeles tops the countdown this week. What do you get when you combine one of the best lead singers with one of the best bands in the Los Angeles indie music scene? ROCKET is what you get when you fuze together the vocal talents of Janelle Barreto (Exploiting Eve; Crush Girl Love Panic) with the musicianship of the established Los Angeles band The Pills.


This week’s freebie is a trio from Osaka named the Atomic Stooges. They are playing at Fuji Rock Festival as I write.

Freebie: Atomic Stooges – Get Free

That’s it for today. Damn! It’s hot in Tokyo today! Hope you have a great weekend. Thanks to my friend, Mike Hannah of the Tokyo band, the Goood Things (yeah, three “o’s”) for turning me onto some of these great bands.  See the Goood Things FB page here. Hear them on Bandcamp here:

Thanks Mike, you are tops! See you on the radio tomorrow morning.
