It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown for Jan. 27, 2018!

First up is Starcrawler! This is 4 weeks in a row on the charts! Their debut CD just came out in Japan a week ago!

Starcrawler are coming to Japan 3/7 (Wed) O-nest in Shibuya, 3/8 (Thu) Nagoya @ Huck Finn,  3/9 (Fri) Osaka @ Conpass, 3/10(Sat) Kyoto @ Metro. Tickets are available here: WWW.BEATINK.COM

#3) Starcrawler – Let Her Be: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alUHhtQSjr4

At #2 is my favorite new band. They are called Amyl and the Sniffers and they are from Australia. This band is going to be the big hit success of 2018. They are about to make a huge announcement that will literally drop your jaw. I’ve been playing them EVERY WEEK on my FM radio show in Japan, “The Mike Rogers Show” on InterFM 897 in Tokyo and Radio Neo in Nagoya 79.5. (Please come Like my FB page!) This is an earlier track of Amyl & the Sniffers. I think this is the best female fronted punk band since Joan Jett or X-Ray Specs.

Don’t be the last one to like their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/amylandthesniffers/

#2) Amyl and The Sniffers – Pleasure Forever: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvkTu7AiTfM

I have a real treat for you at #1! The LEGENDARY Duncan Reid! Duncan “Kid” Reid was an original member of the London Power/Pop band, the Boys. Wikipedia says: “The Boys are an English punk rock/power pop band formed in London in 1976. Members of the band had previously played in other groups, including London SS and Hollywood Brats.”

So Duncan Reid is back and causing trouble and we LOVE it! His new band is called “Duncan Reid and the Big Heads” and their newest album is called, “Bombs Away!”

The 50 Kaitenz have a new album coming out on January 17, 2018 and I have been playing some of their new songs on my FM radio show every week for the last 8 weeks in a row! (The Mike Rogers Show on InterFM 897 in Tokyo and Radio Neo 79.5 in Nagoya – Please come “Like” my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/MikeRogersShow/) The new record is simply awesome and I think it’s their best one yet!

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 Radiko.jp (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.

First up are three guys from Boston on the Slovenly label named The Monsieurs. The Monsieurs were introduced to us by the curator for the stars, Rin Ishioka.

Vanyaland magazine says: “Ask anyone who knows their shit about Boston rock and roll will tell you that garage-punk lords The Monsieurs are one of the best — if not the best — live bands around town.”

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

#3) THE MONSIEURS “Coucou” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKLTLiaEo-A

At #2 is a song that Alex Kish over at Wassup Rocker Radio turned us onto. Thanks Alex! It’s Blondie! Yep! THAT Blondie. This is their newest that was just released yesterday on Dec. 6, 2017!

At this week’s #1 is a band that I debuted on Japanese FM radio a LONG time ago! (Pat myself on the back) and has been aired on my radio show and this countdown many many times. They are Starcrawler from Los Angeles! Their bio says, “We will kill you.” So what more could you ask?

Top 3 Videos 9/9/17! The 50 Kaitenz (Jpn), Lisa Mychols, The Sold! & Bones!, Ya Freshness!

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 Sept 9, 2017!

First up is Lisa Mychols with her latest song that there would be no way to find – because even the great I (Mike Rogers) do not know what the official name of this band – so you are in for a treat!  All Music says: “Lisa Mychols made an impressive splash on the Los Angeles pop underground of the 1990s, especially with her band the Masticators. Once the new millennium had dawned and that vibrant musical community had begun to emerge aboveground, Mychols had developed into one of its most accomplished songwriters, taking an obsession with the 1960s and 1970s AM dial and updating the sound for a new generation of pop/rock addicts.”

Sure, she has a FB page:  https://www.facebook.com/Lisamychols/?pnref=lhc

#3) Lisa Mychols – You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5EyNL5h1qY

At #2 is a song introduced to me by some guys who are running one of the best radio shows in the entire world – against all odds: Gabbie Cabbie and Chris Browne (Check out their show here: https://www.facebook.com/biscuitboys/) The Biscuit Boys introduce us to one of the coolest tracks of the year! Ya Freshness and “This is England!”

I LOVE THIS TRACK!!!! Check out more with Gabbie and Chris at SRB radio worldwide! www.srbradio.com

#2) Ya Freshness – This is England  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acUlzDzx_XE

This week’s #1 is the mighty Sold! And Bones. Another unnamed-famous-DJ-friend of mine told me that he likedThe Sold! And Bones, “Much better than Rancid!” Blashphemy!!!! Actually LOTS of fans in Japan are saying the same thing! And who am I to argue?

Here’s their Facebook page, don’t be stupid, go “Like” it NOW! https://www.facebook.com/thesoldandbones/

#1) The Sold! And Bones – I’m Right, You’re Wrong (Official Video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7JHhYKxm1Y

Spotlight Artist!  Today’s spotlight are another band that appears in “Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock n Roll Ghost Story.”  They are the mighty “50 Kaitenz.” One of the most fun and entertaining concerts I have ever seen in my life and I’ve seen a lot of concerts. Danny, the lead singer of the 50 Kaitenz is starring in Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock n Roll Ghost Story.

I love the 50 Kaitenz. Many years ago, I saw them the first time and thought, “This is Japan’s best rock n roll band!!” They are fucking funny, they rock and they are cool! The 50 Kaitenz are destined to become one of Japan’s most famous bands of all time. If you get a chance to see these guys, you HAVE to go.

Top 3 Videos 8/5/17! Kilo Tango, Cat Lundy, Amyl & the Sniffers, Lucy Gucy, The 50 Kaitenz (Jpn!)

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown of the Top 3 Top 4 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of August 5, 2017!

First up is a brand new band introduced to us, once again,  by Alex Kish of Wassup Rocker Radio Fame! The band’s name is Kilo Tango! Kilo Tango claims they are, “Rock pop n roll melting one face at a time!” Their influences are, The Strokes, Richard Hell, Velvet Underground, Debbie Harry, Dick Dale, Sonny and the Sunsets, Black Lips and Best Coast!

Of course they have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/kilotangoband/

#4) Kilo Tango    Gone Baby Gone – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00IXj75qddY

Alex Kish of Wassup Rocker Radio Fame hits a bases loaded double this week with our next artist! (Check out Alex’s most recent Wassup Rocker Radio Mixtape here: https://vimeo.com/227689908 ) This next artist is from St. Kilda, Australia and their name is Amyl and the Sniffers. Amyl & the Sniffers claim to be a “Pub Punk Sharpie Rock” band. And they are a hot 4-piece with great tunes! For some reason, this band reminds me of X-Ray Spex!
Sure, they do have a Facebook, why do you ask? https://www.facebook.com/amylandthesniffers/ 

#3) Amyl and the Sniffers – Caltex Cowgirl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNC9dWWSXjE

At #2 ia an artist that is a three-piece from Los Angeles named, Lucy Gucy! Lucy Gucy is a, “Surffuzz pop grunk” outfit…. (Grunk???) Thie bio says: “Formed in April 2016, LA-based band Lucy Gucy is multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Tiffany Schirz, bassist/vocalist Lila Marshall and drummer/producer Garry Ventura. The band’s alt-pop sound is infused with 90s grunge and surf-punk flavor… Marshall’s melodic bass lines and spot-on harmonies, along with Ventura’s sharp, dynamic drumming create a cohesive sound bed for the vocals, guitars, and keyboards to leisurely dance around. Schirz‘ smooth and straightforward vocal delivery belies the songs’ often bright, catchy hooks, offering up lyrics that can skew sardonic and that take an un-sugar-coated look at the human condition from a modern-day female perspective.”

Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/lucygucymusic/

#2) Lucy Gucy Dead End Doll   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAGtE3V8iO0

At #1 is a brand new artist introduced to us by Gabbie Cabbie of the world famous Biscuit Boys on SRBradio.com. Gabbie does his show from the UK with his partner Chris Browne! (You can listen in here: http://biscuitboys.co.uk/)

Today, Gabbie brings us a rock n roll goddess from Dublin, Ireland named Cat Lundy. Gabbie sent this to me and on the first listen I thought, “This is awesome!” Ringmaster Magazine writes: “She is a singer/songwriter from Dublin; a classically trained vocalist from the Royal Academy of Music and a self-taught guitarist. Inspired by sixties blues, her songs often themed by tales of love and relationships, Cat has performed across London and as far as New York’s The Bitter End venue and Los Angeles famous House of Blues.” 

Today we feature her latest single and this is hot!

Of course Cat Lundy has a Facebook page….https://www.facebook.com/CatLundyofficial/

#1) Cat Lundy – Triggerman  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCSD7PSuK4o

By the way, the Biscuit Boys are always playing, and on the lookout for, new music and new artists!  The Biscuit Boys have a show on Sports Radio Birmingham www.sports-radio.co.uk every Wednesday at 8pm, Its a mix of madness and madness and bordering on complete stupidity…tune in! So, if you have a band and you think you’ve got what it takes, send your music to Gabbie and Chris Browne on the Biscuit Boys show! Here’s the email address: tracks@sports-radio.co.uk   Tell them Mike sent you!

Spotlight Artist!  Today’s spotlight is a band that I think is one of Japan’s premiere rock bands, they are the awesome and mighty 50 Kaitenz from Osaka!

The 50 Kaitenz are one of the most entertaining, fun and funny rock bands Japan has ever produced. They are a trio with Danny on lead guitar and vocals, Dory on vocals and bass, and Bogie on drums. “Since their miraculous meeting at the notorious Osaka Rock ‘n’ Roll Juvie, the 50 Kaitenz have taken the world of rock by storm. These three stray dogs have become the new legends of Rock ‘n’ Roll.”  If you ever come to Japan and you get a chance to see these guys, don’t miss it… This is truly a hilarious and exhilarating Rock n Roll experience. For today’s track, here they are doing a smashing cover of the Bay City Rollers hit, “Saturday Night.”

They have a Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/50kaitenz/

Spotlight Artist! The 50 Kaitenz – Saturday Night  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mv3O6bbNWA

Cool, eh? And speaking ofthe 50 Kaitenz, they are in the movie Ken Nishikawa and I just completed (with a little help from our friends) Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock n Roll Ghost Story. It hits theaters in Japan on Sept. 30, 2017. The Japanese trailer just came out! (It has English subtitles!) Check it! Oh, and we have a really cool webpage: http://ghostroads.jp/

Top 3 Videos for June 5, 2016! Wendy James, The 50 Kaitenz, The Sloths, John No Arms!

It’s Top 3 Video time! The best of the Top 3 videos for June 5, 2016! Welcome friends!

First up is a punk band from Brazil… (I think). Not much information available from these guys… Even when I ask them. Their Soundcloud says: “Merging all the passion for the good ol’rock with the punk rock energy and the magic of heavy metal with a little bitof classic black metal school, the band sounds like an amazing endless partyimbued with liquor and beer in pubs around the world where people talk aboutfriendship, loyalty, respect, in addition to stories of gorgeous might women…”

I think you’ll laugh and you’ll like this…. Check out the drummer’s seat.

#3) John No Arms – Cada Vez Mais Velho e Bebendo Mais https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyVdgfmwTsY

Next up is ex-Transvision Vamp vocalist in her latest solo work. I love Wendy James! She describes her music as “New Wave” and “Garage Rock.” Here’s her FB page. Go Like it! https://www.facebook.com/THEWENDYJAMES/?fref=ts

#2) Wendy James – Indigent Blues https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMoXnQRqlgM

At #1 is the Sloths…. What? The sixties band, the Sloths? Yep. Their Fb page says, “1965. Five boys, ages 15 to 17, stepped on stage of the famed PANDORA’S BOX on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip. THE SLOTHS were born. Most were students at Beverly Hills High School, others were dropouts. They rehearsed in their garages playing the music of the British bands that inspired them; The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds, Them, The Who, as well as the American blues and rhythm & blues musicians who had inspired those groups; Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters, and John Lee Hooker. The band, with a few changes in the members, played virtually every venue in Hollywood; The Stratford, Sea Witch, The Hullabaloo, Hollywood Palladium, The Whiskey, Bito Lidos, and The Galaxy. They shared the bill with The Doors, Love, Iron Butterfly, The Seeds, and British icons Pink Floyd and The Animals. THE SLOTHS were approached by Impression Records and recorded two original songs; ‘MAKIN LOVE’ & ‘YOU MEAN EVERYTHING TO ME’. Taking their 45 to local radio stations themselves, they hoped to have it played. But ‘Makin’ Love’ was considered too controversial and ‘You Mean Everything To Me’ was only played on air once. By the end of Summer 1966, the group disbanded. Some returned to school, others dissolved into The May Wines, The Yellow Payges, TNT, The Kingbees, and Doug Yule’s Velvet Underground.” Go like their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/theslothsband1965/?fref=ts

#1) The Sloths – One Way Out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLtjRxVYZLU

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today is the mighty 50 Kaitenz from Osaka. I LOVE this band. Is this Japan’s best punk band? I think so. These guys are great musicians and funny as hell! Here is their latest single. Dig it! Go like their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/the50kaitenz/?fref=ts

Top 3 Videos for Dec. 18, 2015! Clara Belle and the Creeps, Ringo Deathstarr, Punk Lung, The 50 Kaitenz!

Time once again for the Top 3 Video Countdown! My favorite new Top 3 Indies artist’s discoveries for the week of Dec. 18, 2015.

At #3 is a new artist from Florence, Alabama. The group has six members that includes an accordion and glockenspiel and they make quite a delightful and interesting sound. Their Facebook page says, “We’re creepy…but in a good way.” Check it out. This is hot!

#3) Clara Belle and the Creeps – I Just Wanna Dance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbnLQecM0bY

At #2 is Ringo Deathstarr. They appeared on my radio show last week! Thanks!

Ringo Deathstarr on WTF? on InterFM 897 Tokyo, Japan Dec. 13, 2015

This is the 2nd time Ringo Deathstarr has appeared on our countdown. Last week they had the #1 song! and it’s from their newest album entitled, “Pure Mood.” Don’t be the last one in your neighborhood to go and “Like” their FB page here: https://www.facebook.com/ringodeathstarr/?fref=nf

#2) Ringo Deathstarr – Guilt https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAVv5G1jkW4

At #1 is a song that is a collaboration between White Lung and Pink Mountaintops; they call it “Pink Lung.” This song was made in time for Halloween and was released on a compilation by a sports shoes company… The album is called, “CONS EP Vol. 3.”

#1) Pink Lung – Chinese Watermelon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8T4xGErsC4

And finally, our spotlight artist of the week! It’s our fave group from Osaka, the 50 Kaitenz (in English “The 50 Rotations”). “Where the heck have these badboys been on our countdowns recently?” you ask? Well, judging from this video, I guess they were in China! The 50 Kaitenz never cease to amaze me (as well as crack me up!) Confucius say, “You go ‘Like’ Facebook page now! Right now! Go!” (https://www.facebook.com/the50kaitenz/?fref=ts)
