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 Dec. 31, 2016!
First up today are two girls from London who describe their music as “Alternative Pop Rock.” Their name is Rews and this is the 3rd time in 2016 they’ve hit the Top 3! I think these girls are hot! Here’s their Facebook page, go Like it! https://www.facebook.com/wearerewsmusic/?fref=ts

#2) The Future Babes – Cold Blooded https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8gHgWZBv30
At #1 is a fab band that was introduced to us by the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer (Rodney on the Roq – KROQ Los Angeles). Their names is the Tearaways. These guys are highly experienced pros who started out in the old L.A. punk days…. In fact, you might want to check their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TheTearawaysUSA), too, as there are some well known people in this excellent band. This particular video for “Bash” was made by Stephen David Brooks who is the director of the award winning (and quite thrilling) movie, “Flytrap.” (Check the trailer for Flytrap here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUNrSgu3bi0)

He began in the music business in 1977 as lead vocalist with the crappy but 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 and several of Japan’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 as well as Rakuten Superrr Radio’s Power Morning everyday Mon. ~ Fri. 6 am ~ 10 am. As well as Rakuten Superrr Radio’s Power Evening Mon. ~ Fri. 5 pm ~ 8 pm.
