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 Oct. 15, 2016!

First up is a guy who was introduced to us by Ginger Wildheart who is a regular on our Top 3. Introducing Chris Catalyst. Chris is a “Bloke in some bands” and he is from Leeds, England. He is coming out with his solo debut. Here is his FB page, go “Like” it.

#3) Chris Catalyst – Sticks and Stones

Next up is Suzy Blu. Coincidentially, Suzy Blu seems to be from Leeds too. Wow! I like Suzy a lot and she is getting great reviews! Check it! Suzy is putting out one single per month from July 2016 to the end of this year. Here is item #3. Here also is her Facebook page for more info:

#2) SUZY BLU – Kill Your Friends, For Fun

Finally, at #1 is Garbage and their newest single Magnetized. Why did I pick this as this week’s #1? Well, because the little girl who plays Shirley Manson as a child, is my niece! No kidding… Well, not exactly my real niece… But I am proud enough of her and her dad (who is one of my best friends and a legendary stand up bassist) to call them my own. Shirley Manson and Garbage are awesome. Lenore, the little kid, is a natural… And, perhaps a future star? I can see her doing sequels and starring as Carrie….. Lenore! Great job! Well done! Don’t dream it. Be it! 

#1) Garbage – Magnetized

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today’s Spotlight Artist is a hot Japanese girl’s rock band from Tokyo named Su Ko D Koi. These girls have been on our Top 3 Video countdown many times. in the past. This time they’ve made a play on Offenbach’s “Heaven and Hell.” (I know that because, even though I am an old punk, I live in a house with classically trained pianists.) Offenbach’s “Heaven and Hell” used to be a staple at children’s Sports Days at elementary schools in Japan… So this is quite humorous for the Japanese. These girls went to music college so now you know the rest of the story. I love this band. Here’s their FB page:

I’ve also been playing this regularly on my FM radio show “WTF?” and will play again tomorrow, Sunday, October 16, 2016. Check it out!

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Su凸ko D凹koi (すっとこどっこい) 「元カノ地獄」 “Former Girlfriend’s Hell.”

That’s all for today! See you next week when we return to the Top 3 Indies Artist Videos Countdown. See ya! – Mike in Tokyo Rogers
