Top 3 Indies Videos 12/01/17 – Five Fab Japanese Indies and Garage Bands!

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown! This week s a special! Today we have five of my recent fave Japanese Indies bands for the week of Dec. 1, 2017! These are five groups that I think could do alright in the west. First up are a group of four fab psychos doing the trash garage thingy like a boss! They are from Tokyo known as “Ed Woods.” Ed Woods describe themselves as, “B-Movie, Rock`n`Roll & TV Game Or Die !! They are ”ED WOODS”. Link Wray is their father. Ed Wood is their Grandfather. Divine is their Mom. Big Foot is their Pet. Thank you!!” 

Ed Woods are, in my opinion, one of the best garage bands around. They have some shows coming up if you are in Tokyo over the next few weeks. In fact, they are playing tomorrow night 12/2(Sat) in Nagano, @Live House J.  “MIDNIGHT RAMBLER” and Ed Woods will appear with UnderGrounded Monogram, Mr. Fin And Jake, Living Is Not Breathing.

Yeah? They have a Facebook page. Go Like it or DIE! https://www.facebook.com/trash.crazy.edwoods/

#5) ED WOODS – Rock Shock In My Head https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hCF1wYMzZ4

At #4 are three guys who contributed a hot track to the Original Soundtrack of “Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock n Roll Ghost Story.” They are from Tokyo also and they are called, the Mackshow!” I’ve seen these guys live before and not only did they rock, they were funny too! Great sounds. Great look. Tokyo’s own Mackshow!

Their bio states: “The Japanese Rock & Roll icon of 21st century, sets the unique concept such as Leather jacket, regent hair, rock and roll and the “Showa” (Japanese 60’s~80’s) style three piece R&R band. They formed in 2002 by Vocal & guitar Kozzy Mack, bass Tommy Mack, and drums Bikeboy. For much of their career, most of their performances were held at club circuits. Very simple original R&R sound and vocal skills hit all over Japan.”

Here’s their Facebook page: http://bit.ly/2x5CgRn

#4) THE MACKSHOW – Phantom of Twenty Faces: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OCQ0QK1BQw

Next up is a group that must have stepped into some sort of time machine. They are called the Learners! The Learners are known for covering songs from the 50s and beyond. They describe themselves as “Girl pop, punk, ska, jazz, rock ‘n’ roll” and they revive famous songs. The Learners do not have a Facebook page but they have a Tumbler page: https://learnersband.tumblr.com

Oh, and the Learners also have some shows coming up soon too: https://learnersband.tumblr.com/tagged/show

#3) LEARNERS – I WANT YOU TO BE MY BABY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiEWcShzypc

At #2 is a girl’s band that I think just might be one of the best girl’s punk band in Japan! They are Su凸ko D凹koi! How does one pronounce that? I don’t know, just try this: Su Ko D Koi! This is their latest video and it is for a song called, “Momanaide.” “Momanaide” is about her ex-boyfriend who has a new girlfriend and she pleads with him to not rub her, uh, well, not rub her tits…. Later on, when she fumes about what is going on, she consoles herself by remembering that she has a new boyfriend. It’s cynical and funny. Theie new album goes on sale Jan. 17, 2018.

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

#2) Su凸ko D凹koi (すっとこどっこい) 「MOMANAIDE」 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYo4fvFQ8dc

At #1 this week are Kyushu’s favorite sons, The Routes. The Routes bio says: “Based in bowl in the mountains (Hita City, Oita prefecture), Anglo-Nipponese trio The Routes play independently over 600 miles south of the Tokyo garage scene. 
The Routes play mostly original music, taking influence from UK and US 60s music and culture, happily oblivious to the fads and trends of today.” I know for a fact that The Routes are getting airplay all over the world. And I air them a lot on my new FM radio, The Mike Rogers Show on InterFM 897 in Tokyo, Radio Neo 79.5 in Naogoya and nationwide on Radiko.jp. Please check it out! The Routes’ new album is now on sale too! http://greenwayrecords.storenvy.com/products/21914390-the-routes-dirty-needles-and-pins

Top 3 Indies Videos 10/08/17!

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. 8, 2017!

First up, are a band from Hollywood, Calif. named the Crazy Squeeze. Lord Rutledge of “Faster and Louder” writes: “Not since the Traveling Wilburys has there been a supergroup as universally anticipated as The Crazy Squeeze. If you were into the underground punk/rock n’ roll scene in the late ‘90s and early 2000s, you know who these guys are… Where else but in Hollywood could Johnny Witmer (of The Stitches), Frankie Delmane (of Now Wave faves the Teenage Frames), Chris B. (of the Richmond Sluts), and Johnny Sleeper (of the Superbees) have come together to combine their prodigious & complementary talents for the betterment of the free world?! The Crazy Squeeze – now with Dat Ngo ex-Super Bees in on bass – are everything you’d expect and then some. Combining vintage glam wham-bam (New York Dolls, Slade) with straight-up rockin’ punk, their sound is pure raunchy fun with hooks out the wazoo. You know: music for fucking!…  If you enjoyed the Dolls, Joneses, or any of these guys’ old bands, it’s time to get on board the Crazy Squeeze bandwagon. Pour yourself a hard drink, and shake it!”

The Crazy Squeeze just released their 2nd LP Savior of the Streets and, of course, they have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/thecrazysqueeze/

#3) THE CRAZY SQUEEZE – Nasty https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TdXWU9Wzts

At #2 is a All-Girl Trio punk grunge band from Toronto, Canada. This rocks! I think there might be something not so good going on with this band as I checked their label page for infomation, but could not find the Beverleys listed. Uh oh… Anyway, this shit is hot. Here’s their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/thebeverleysband/

#2) The Beverleys – Visions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFAiGPg47_o

At #1 this week is the all-girl band from Tokyo that I think is Japan’s best girl’s punk band. Their name is Su凸ko D凹koi. How does one read that? I don’t know but just say, Su Ko D Koi. This video is hilarious! They are singing about their old boyfriend and how they don’t want him rubbing the tits of his new girlfriend… “Momanaide” means “Don’t rub (or massage).” So they are singing, “Don’t massage her tits.” Even though they all have a new boyfriend. Totally teenage angst and frustration! Great stuff! Here’s their Facebook page. Go Like it: https://www.facebook.com/ssttddkk/

#1) Su凸ko D凹koi (すっとこどっこい) 「MOMANAIDE」  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYo4fvFQ8dc

Spotlight Artist!  Today, for the first time ever, a band was #1 and the Spotlight Artist! Again, here is Su凸ko D凹koi. (Su Ko D Koi). My friend Ken Nishikawa and I made one of their previous videos. This week’s #1 is “Don’t rub her tits.” But this week’s Spotlight is is Su凸ko D凹koi. and “Busu” (Ugly).

#2) Bleached “Dead in Your Head” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCN9FCQ_P84

At #1 is Daphne Guinness. Rodney on the Roq has been playing her a lot. She has a story to tell! “Wait a sec!” I hear you say! That’s right! Daphne is a blood relation to THAT Guinness! Here’s what Wikipedia has to say, “The Honourable Daphne Diana Joan Susanna Guinness (born 9 November 1967) is a British and Irish fashion designer, art collector, model, film producer and actor. She is an heir by direct descent of the 18th century Irish brewer Arthur Guinness.” What!? That means that, because I’ve drank so much Guinness in my life, am hungover now, that Daphne and I are blood related relatives! (Because I have so much Guinness left-over in my blood stream from last night!) Daphne and I are related, in a sideways sort of fashion!  Buuuuurp!

Thanks to Kona Cindy for turning us onto Daphne (I already knew the Guinness part).

#1) Evening In Space: Daphne Guinness / David LaChapelle / Tony Visconti https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUSatRN4vAk

TODAY’S SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Is a Tokyo-based female rock trio band named su凸ko d凹koi (すっとこどっこい)… OK. Too difficult for English speakers (me too!) so just say, “Su Ko D Koi!” Their newest CD just came out and it is sold out all over Japan! Well done, ladies. Also they headlined at our New Year’s party on Jan. 23 and were fab!

Besides that, I posted today’s video because it was made by my friend, Ken and me. The video just passed 90,000 views! (Actually, there are two URLs of the same video so the grand total of views is almost 130,000!) Wow! Thanks so much everybody! Please go like their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/ssttddkk/

At #1 is a fab band that was introduced to us by the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer (Rodney on the Roq – KROQ Los Angeles). Their names is the Tearaways. These guys are highly experienced pros who started out in the old L.A. punk days…. In fact, you might want to check their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TheTearawaysUSA), too, as there are some well known people in this excellent band. This particular video for “Bash” was made by Stephen David Brooks who is the director of the award winning (and quite thrilling) movie, “Flytrap.” (Check the trailer for Flytrap here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUNrSgu3bi0)

Top 3 Indies Artist Videos for Dec. 4, 2016! David Bowie, Su Ko D Koi (Japan), Lover, David and The Curse!

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 Dec. 4, 2016!

First up is a band named David and The Curse. David Stücken is the driving force behind LA-based rock band David and The Curse. Their debut album entitled, “An Epitaph For Love” is due out in early 2017. This is a hot track that’s getting lots of airplay on my radio show, Rakuten Superrr Radio. This song is a bonafide hit (and the video features some hot babes!) Here’s their Facebook page too, if you’re interested: https://www.facebook.com/davidandthecurse/

#3) David and The Curse – She Loves The Night https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6z1oCoAQFU

At #2 is a band from London named Lover. This is the second time they have appeared on the countdown this year. This is their latest single called, “White Bears.” Lover is fronted by Sarah and the goal of the band is to, “Make dark and strange appealing.” I like this a lot as it has a definite glam streak to it. They have a Facebook page and it has lots of interesting content. Go check it out: https://www.facebook.com/LoverTheBand/

#2) Lover – White Bears  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ib_p8Iclq4

At #1 this week is a video by Mick Rock. It is a rework of the 1973 Life on Mars video. Normally, I wouldn’t put this on the Top 3 because it is not a new song or artist, but , well. It’s BOWIE! David Bowie! Bowie is god! So what else is there to say? Of course there’s a tons of Bowie fan sites on Facebook and all over the map. Go check it out. This remix/remaster is OK… Interesting… But I think I still prefer the original.

#1) David Bowie – Life On Mars (2016 Mix) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UipTt-qqZOE

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today’s Spotlight Artist is one of my favorite Japanese girl’s punk band’s of all time. Their name is Su凸ko D凹koi (Just say, “Su Ko D Koi”) They are releasing their first full album on Jan. 11, 2017! AND they are going to be guests on my radio show, “WTF?” tomorrow morning (Dec. 4, 2016)… Not only that, they will headline at our free New Year’s Party (tickets are free, but you have to have a reservation! If you want to g, see information below the video!

Top 3 Indies Artist Videos for Oct. 15, 2016! Chris Catalyst, Suzy Blu, Garbage, Su Ko D Koi (Japan)

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 Oct. 15, 2016!

First up is a guy who was introduced to us by Ginger Wildheart who is a regular on our Top 3. Introducing Chris Catalyst. Chris is a “Bloke in some bands” and he is from Leeds, England. He is coming out with his solo debut. Here is his FB page, go “Like” it. https://www.facebook.com/ChrisCatalystMusic/

#3) Chris Catalyst – Sticks and Stones https://vimeo.com/184529502

Next up is Suzy Blu. Coincidentially, Suzy Blu seems to be from Leeds too. Wow! I like Suzy a lot and she is getting great reviews! Check it! Suzy is putting out one single per month from July 2016 to the end of this year. Here is item #3. Here also is her Facebook page for more info: https://www.facebook.com/suzyblufanclub/?fref=ts

#2) SUZY BLU – Kill Your Friends, For Fun https://youtu.be/w3hJcPjHbqI

Finally, at #1 is Garbage and their newest single Magnetized. Why did I pick this as this week’s #1? Well, because the little girl who plays Shirley Manson as a child, is my niece! No kidding… Well, not exactly my real niece… But I am proud enough of her and her dad (who is one of my best friends and a legendary stand up bassist) to call them my own. Shirley Manson and Garbage are awesome. Lenore, the little kid, is a natural… And, perhaps a future star? I can see her doing sequels and starring as Carrie….. Lenore! Great job! Well done! Don’t dream it. Be it! 

#1) Garbage – Magnetized https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcfOmhGJ8G4

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today’s Spotlight Artist is a hot Japanese girl’s rock band from Tokyo named Su Ko D Koi. These girls have been on our Top 3 Video countdown many times. in the past. This time they’ve made a play on Offenbach’s “Heaven and Hell.” (I know that because, even though I am an old punk, I live in a house with classically trained pianists.) Offenbach’s “Heaven and Hell” used to be a staple at children’s Sports Days at elementary schools in Japan… So this is quite humorous for the Japanese. These girls went to music college so now you know the rest of the story. I love this band. Here’s their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/ssttddkk/

I’ve also been playing this regularly on my FM radio show “WTF?” and will play again tomorrow, Sunday, October 16, 2016. Check it out! http://www.interfm.co.jp/wtf/

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Su凸ko D凹koi (すっとこどっこい) 「元カノ地獄」 “Former Girlfriend’s Hell.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIv1VlnRWyw

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

Top 3 Videos for April 17, 2016! Japanese Punk Bands! The Privates, Moja, Su Ko D Koi, The Soap!

It’s Top 3 Video time! The best of the Top 3 videos for April 17, 2016 chosen by vote by millions of young, nubile Japanese high school girls in uniforms from all over the country!

This week I want to feature 4 videos of 4 of my all-time favorite Japanese bands.

And did someone say, “Hot Girls”? I did? Yep. From Kyoto, this 3 girl and 1 guy band are sexy as hell (I mean the girls are). This video was originally made for an online music video channel called Gotcha TV. I worked there! It went bankrupt! Urgghhh!!!! But this band is still rocking today!

#4) The Soap – Street https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scf3xBQV-cg

Next up is one of the most fucking radical Japanese rock bands you’ll ever see. Their name is Moja and they are a duet on bass guitar and drums. It blows my mind that these two can make so much noise with just two instruments. They are hot live! Come to Japan! You must see this band live! Here’s their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/MOJA-203061873063258/?fref=ts

#3) Moja – Hello Hello    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6K0aaVtnWs

Next up is what is most probably my very favorite Japanese all-girls band of all-time. Their name is: Su凸ko D凹koi. What does that say? Good question. I don’t know exactly either. Let’s just call them “Su Ko D Koi.” This particular song is awesome. It’s called, “Busu” (“Ugly” in English) and it’s about the laments of a girl who thinks she is ugly. She sings,

“Ugly, ugly, ugly, ugly…. I know I am ugly….
But, I got a boyfriend and we have been going out.
But one day, out of the blue, he hit me for no reason.
I woke up in the hospital and he had his head in his hands.
Then he was gone….
But, I finally was able to realize that finally, he treated me like a woman!
I was happy!”
