Top 3 Indies Videos 10/28/17! Touts, Peter118, Rews, Van T’s, Cabbage, Vivian Boys (Jpn)!

Hey! Like cool new music and not that crap on commercial radio? Welcome! 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 Oct. 28, 2017! While everyone and their sister are doing Halloween things, I’m gonna give you a break and just play brand new cool stuff and Spotlight an awesome Japanese band!

First up is something hot off the presses that just came out yesterday! It’s one of the hottest new bands around, The Touts! Their bio says, “Touts are a three piece band from Derry, Ireland. A singer that can’t sing, a mod that can’t play bass and a drummer that can’t see.” This is their third single. All the songs by the Touts kick ass!

Here’s their Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/toutsband/

#5) TOUTS – Bombscare  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQmdoIhnizc

At #4 is another song that just came out… Like a few hours ago. No kidding. It’ the latest by London’s own, The Rews. The Rews are aLondon/Belfast based “High Energy Alterna-Rock Pop Female Duo consisting of songstress Shauna Tohill & beat-maker vocalist Collette Williams.”

This is their latest hot wax too. Here’s their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/wearerewsmusic/

#4) REWS – Your Tears https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1TMWDGpuSg

At this week’s #3 is Peter118 from Jolly Old England, Stoke-on-Trent to be exact. These guys make the chart because when we played this track on my radio show last week, Japan’s most famous DJ, George Williams stopped and said, “This is a great song!” That rarely happens (he’s picky!) Peter118 is a punk outfit with a positive message. Dig it!

Here’s their Facebook page, go Like it! https://www.facebook.com/Peter118UK/

#3) Peter118 – ‘United We Stand’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msEFa3ukrnM

The next track is another brand new one that came out, well, it came out a few hours ago also. It’s a 4-piece from Glasgow, Scotland called, The Van T’s. The Van T’s have graced our countdown two or three times in the past and I think this group is fab! Their bio says, “Formed in around 2013 by twins Hannah and Chloe, The Van T’s have already enjoyed widespread praise from blogs and radio including Bella Union honcho Simon Raymonde. This acclaim has spread outwith the UK with radio plays in France and the US.” (well, and Japan MANY dozens of times, on one of Japan’s biggest 5 radio stations, but I guess you guys don’t check your Facebook!) 😉

Facebook? Oh, yeah. Here is their’s. Go Like it:  https://www.facebook.com/TheVanTs/

#2) The Van T’s – Bittersweet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apAv_YL0C6A

At #1 is a band from Mossley. Where’s that? It’s Cabbage and this is their third appearance on the chart (after a long absence). Cabbage describe themselves as, “Apocalyptic Sprautrock.” They are just finishing up their UK tour.

Need to know more? Here’s their Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/cabbagelechou/

#1) Cabbage – Kevin (Skeleton Key Mix)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQtlPYceQ2o

Spotlight Artist!  Today’s spotlight artists are the Vivian Boys. The Vivian Boys are a Tokyo based Japanese garage band. AND THEY ARE FUCKING HOT!!!!! I think the first time I ever played them on the radio here was about 10 years ago and people loved them. They claim to be inspired by Sonics, Shangri-Las, Velvet Underground, British MOD, Nancy Sinatra, and New York Punk.

Of course, the Vivian Boys have a Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/vivianboys2013/

Spotlight Artist! VIVIAN BOYS – S.O.S. ( various gigs ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZBRc7yqOCw

Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock n Roll Ghost Story world premiered in London on Sept. 25 and was completely SOLD OUT! The movie is now on a Road Show in Japan and at a theater near you. You can find details here:  https://www.facebook.com/Japaneserocknrollghost/

Top 3 Videos for Mar. 12, 2016! HINDS, Lola Dutronic, Rews, Japan’s TADZIO!

Welcome back to the Top 3 Video countdown. The Top 3 Indies Artists Videos for the week of Mar. 12, 2016! And it’s “Ladies Nite!” on the Top 3 this week with some of my recent fave acts that are females or have a female lead singer!

First up at #3! Is Hinds. This band was turned on to us by alert reader and friend named Mami Nagamachi! Thanks Mami!!!!! Wikipedia says, “Hinds is a Spanish indie rock band from Madrid, formed in 2011. The original name of the band was Deers, but they were forced to change it at the end of 2014, due to the threat of legal action from a similarly named band.” What? That other band must suck! That’s bullshit, ladies! Another band doesn’t own the copyright on the English language or the name “Deers.” They can’t sue you… Oh well…

#3) HINDS | Chili Town https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdHVboNNkAo

Next up are two girls from London who call themselves, “Rews.” Today’s song just came out at the start of March. Of course, on WTF? we’ve been playing this constantly. It’s great. Awesome lyrics. Here’s their FB page. You go, “Like”! https://www.facebook.com/wearerewsmusic/?fref=ts

#2) REWS – Death Yawn https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTWx9nmMU4w

This week’s #1 is another song Hot Off The Presses! It’s a duo who has been on the Top 3 many times in the past. Lola Dutronic is a Canadian electronica duo, consisting of remixer/producer Richard Citroen and vocalist Stephanie B. The band adapts songs from the French and British sixties (from artists such as Serge Gainsbourg, Françoise Hardy, Brigitte Bardot or John Barry) with modern electronic arrangements. They have issued five albums and two EPs so far. Here is their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/LOLA-DUTRONIC-80232595392/?fref=ts

#1) Lola Dutronc – Harley Davidson  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Af2dtXm0mw

TODAY’S SPOTLIGHT ARTIST: Today’s Spotlight Artist from Japan are two girls who make a hell of a lot of racket for only having a drum kit and a guitar. Their name is Tadzio. They are getting a following overseas and have been featured on “Spine TV” in the UK. They call themselves a “Roaring Hardcore Pop Band.” Here’s their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/TADZIO-122557687912383/?fref=ts

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST: TADZIO / DEATH DRIVE – KISS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQlZsVXjjJw

Well, that’s it for today! See you next week!!!!!  – Mike (in Tokyo) Rogers
