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 Nov. 11, 2017!
First up is a hot band Punk, Garage, Rock band from Leeds. Louder than War says: “Paying homage to the Ramones and their favourite 60s girl-groups via the medium of punky pop songs. And, make no mistake, that’s a perfectly fine thing to be. There’s actually a bit more to the Twitch than that might suggest, though – that extra bit of proficiency and imagination a band needs to make them stand out.”
Here’s their Bandcamp page: https://nervoustwitch.bandcamp.com/

#3) Nervous Twitch – That Weird Guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWafhb3rVjg
At #2 is one of my favorite bands from Los Angeles and their name is Eux Autres. Magnet Magazine says about Eux Autres: “Hovering somewhere between a high-school French-class assignment and Thee Headcoats.” Eux Autres gets lots of airtime on my regular weekly, nationally broadcast FM radio show in Japan, “The Mike Rogers Show” on InterFM 897!
#2) Eux Autres – Ecoutez Bien: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ib3Uy94-rDk

Beautiful radiation of hyper-dimensional springy sound creates divine psychic wind for your special protection.

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 “The Mike Rogers Show” every Sunday live on InterFM 89.7 and nationally broadcast on Radiko. 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.
