Time once again for this week’s Top 3 New Artist Videos for the week of April 21, 2015. This week I want to show you my fave videos for the week as well as a new video we made for a Japanese band named Su Ko D Koi, (which I think is one of Japan’s best new girl punk bands!) Of course, I play these artists and these songs on my regular weekly FM radio show, “What the Funday” on InterFM that is broadcast in Tokyo and Nagoya (and all over Japan on the Radiko.jp network. You can listen to that (if you are in Japan) here: http://radiko.jp/).
First up, if you liked the Psychedelic Furs then you are going to love this! It’s Psychedelic Furs former guitarist John Ashton’s newest group, Satellite Paradiso.
Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about John Ashton:
John Geza Ashton is a British musician, songwriter and record producer. He is a guitarist and former member of the Psychedelic Furs along with brothers Tim and Richard Butler. Since the band reformed in 2001, Ashton has joined the band on occasion for tours. Currently, Ashton is an active producer, and has worked on a number of projects including Marianne Faithfull, The Sisters of Mercy, Red Betty, and Seven Color Sky. His first solo album, Satellite Paradiso, was released on 27 May 2014. Ashton currently resides in Woodstock, New York.

Next up, could this be Japan’s hottest new girl’s punk band? Their name is SU凸KO D凹KOI! (Su Ko D Koi). The powerful sound these girls make is incredible! And there’s only three of them!
The song is called, “Busu” which means “Ugly.” Check it!
“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!”
(It’s kind of like that 1950s song, by the Crystals, “He Hit Me, and it Felt Like a Kiss”)

And last but not least, the Ettes. The Ettes are a garage rock band that formed in 2004 in Los Angeles, California. They are now currently based in Nashville, Tennessee.
