Now, let’s get to this week’s Top 3 Indies artist’s videos! And you are gonna dig this shit! For some weird reason, the first three artist’s songs or band names have to do with UFO’s, monsters and zombies. I don’t know how that happened, it just did. Maybe we are heading for the Zombie Apocalypse?
First up? Messer Chups. Messer Chups is an experimental band from St. Petersburg, Russia. Messer Chups’ music often features a foundation of surf drums on which they build collages of samples from odd sources, like jazz, east European animation soundtracks, and American B-pictures. On top of that they lay guitar solos and theremin. Check it out. This is hot!
#3) Messer chups “Go Satan Go” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxTOrZDgzbA
Next up is a Psychobilly band named, “Sir Psyko and his Monsters.” They claim to be Austria’s finest Psychobilly band and they formed in 2006. I guess they have a pretty healthy following in Japan too!
#2) Sir Psyko and his Monsters – “PSYCHOTIC CALL” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-8jg0X4Zp8
At this week’s #1 is a band that was sent to me by Kona Cindy! In fact, that’s two #1 hits on our countdown for two weeks in a row that were sent by Kona Cindy! (Last week was Bonsai Kitten!) The Love Zombies are a five piece band from London fronted by American singer Hollis J. There site says, “…(the) band mixes punk rock energy and catchy melodies with influences from The Ramones and Blondie to Paramore and No Doubt.”
#1) Love Zombies – Be Honest https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtEnBg9w8uI
And this week’s Bonus Track is by Japan’s own the Privates. The Privates have been big in Japan’s rock scene for over 30 years and they are still going strong. The simplest description that I can give westerners is by describing them as the “Japanese Buzzcocks.” Anyway, I went to a private house party on Wednesday night (it was a great party! Thanks Jyoti and Anil!) and had the pleasure of watch the Private’s lead vocalist, Tatsuji Nobuhara perform a few songs on an acoustic guitar. It was fab! This is one of the songs he played for us… By the way, Tatsuji Nobuhara is one of the main actors in a “Japanese Rock ‘n’ Roll Ghost Story” movie. You can see him in the trailer above or by clicking here (trailer at top of page): https://www.makuake.com/en/project/rock
