Top 3 Indies Videos 6/11/17! The Fontaines, Beck Black, Taffy (Japan) The Beverleys!

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 June 11, 2017!

First up is a “Junk, Punk or Whatever” all-girl trio from Ontario, Canada named The Beverleys. This is the first time The Beverleys have ever been on our countdown. And that’s it. That’s all I can tell you about them because that is the extent of information I can get from their various pages; I can’t find a bio on them anywhere. Anyway, I think this song is cool. Please go “Like” their Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/thebeverleysband/

#3) The Beverleys – Hoodwink https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9pFpVBLmqk

At #2 are an act that have graced the pages of our countdown before! The Fontaines from Los Angeles with their newest single hot off the presses. The Fontaines are a brother and sister act. And that’s all I can tell you about them too; they don’t seem to have a bi online. Is this some sort of trend? Well, they have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/thatfontainesound/

#2) The Fontaines – Two Bodies https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRNHIGCFj8w

At #1 this week is Beck Black with a video she directed herself! Their bio says: “Beck Black delivers a bluesy punk experience with the dynamic soul of pure rock’n’roll theater. Together with Adam Alt, award-winning drummer from Street Drum Corps, Ms. Black, front woman, keyboardist/bassist, & composer reaches new peaks of sound and energy with tightly woven songs and an electrifying stage presence not to be missed. Black’s take-no-prisoners show attitude, combined with Alt’s fierce drumming and the recently-added guitar shredder Mo Mattaquin, have been devastating LA crowds for over the last year.”

Oh, and they have a Facebook page too: https://www.facebook.com/beckblackmusic/

#1) Beck Black – Red Dog https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieq7LygiWD0

Spotlight Artist! Today’s spotlight goes to a Tokyo band named Taffy. Taffy asks, “guitar band? alternative? shoegazer?” Tehn answers with, “Whatever.” They have a few shows in Japan before heading off to the UK at the end of July for a tour. You can check their Facebook page for more details: https://www.facebook.com/taffy8/

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

—————————–

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). Has produced a few smash hit programs (some real losers, too!) and several of Tokyo’s highest rated and most famous radio programs. 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 “WTF?” the hugely popular Sunday live show on InterFM 89.7 . And his life’s dream is his just completed full-length motion picture, Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock and Roll Ghost Storywhich will be released by a major Japanese motion picture company and in theaters all across Japan in Autumn 2017. (See trailer here: https://vimeo.com/210533272)… Oh, and he likes to write about himself in the third person!)
