We’re back to this Week’s Top 3 New Artist Videos by Robot55 (pronounced: “Robot Go-Go” 「ロボット・ゴー・ゴー」) where we showcase what I think are the best three artists of the week and showcase their videos. These are all videos of bands that I have been playing on my regular weekly FM radio show, “What the Funday” on InterFM that is broadcast all over Japan! (Please come and “Like” our FB page if you like cool Alternative sounds and get information as to how you can hear the show anywhere in the world for free!

First off, I’d like to introduce this delightful band from London, England. They released their debut album “Out of View” on 28 January 2013, which went in at number 8 in the UK Indie Breakers Chart, and number 2 in the UK Record Store Chart. I’ve been playing today’s song every week for the last three weeks. I love it!

The Just Joans are David, Katie, Chris, Allan, Doog, Fraser. They are named after the Daily Record’s “Agony Aunt” and make music about everyday angst. Currently the are based in Glasgow, Scotland. I love the song but also appreciate how they did their video production on the cheap and were still able to pull my heartstrings and give me a chuckle.

Next up is a fab Garage Punk band from Los Angeles, CA who are really making a name for themselves. Adam Bones on guitar & Rikki Styxx on drums are from L.A. and recently have been touring and opening for some big names.

A review in Buzzbands LA says: “The Two Tens serve up lightning-quick garage rock that turns the clock back to first-wave punk. The single “Scene” persistently asks “Where’s your scene?” and delivers an answer in just over two minutes: Wherever you’re keeping your old Ramones vinyl.”

And now this week’s Freebie. Today is Glen Matlock, the original bassist for the Sex Pistols. The “Original” Sex Pistol, Glen Matlock, performed “Yeah Right” live at O-WEST, Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan on 5, February, 2014. By the way, did you know that Glen Matlock was actually the one who wrote the Pistols’ classic, “Pretty Vacant”? Here he is doing his original song that was released as a single, “Yeah Right!”

Well that’s the Top 3 for this week.
