It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown for Mar. 17, 2018! Today I have a bunch of new punk bands. Starting off the countdown today is a band introduced to us by Alex over at Wassup Rocker Radio (Here’s their Twitter account: https://twitter.com/WassupRckrRadio). The band’s name is Mary’s Kids and they are a punk band from Stockholm, Sweden. Their bio states they are influenced by: “DEAD MOON, DEAD BOYS, MINOR THREAT, BLACK FLAG, RAMONES, ALL…” So that’s pretty good, I think.
Here’s their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/MARYSKIDSTHEBAND/
#4) Marys Kids – I ain’t got no life https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWsctR10qWI
At #3 is a band from Orange County near Los Angeles. Their name is Darky Dark and the Junkie Bunch. This is some heavy shit. Shocking, really. I haven’t heard/see anything this shocking since The Dead Kennedys or Fear.
Here’s their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/DarkyDarkJunkieBunch/
#3) Darky Dark and The Junkie Bunch – My Life As A Loaded Gun https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1OoO_9bF3Y
At #2 is my fave new band of the last year or so. From Australia, Amyl & the Sniffers. Amyl got their name because the lead singer’s name is Amy Louise. They are about to make some huge announcements. If you get a chance to see these guys live, Go! They are going to be big! This is their latest single called, “Cup of Destiny” which just came out!
Facebook? Of course: https://www.facebook.com/amylandthesniffers/
#2) Amyl and The Sniffers – Cup Of Destiny https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqCYLQsALEw
At #1 this week are no strangers to the countdown, they are my favorite band from New York! They are The Baby Shakes! Their Bio says, “Baby Shakes are a rock n’ roll-punk band from New York City. Mary on lead vocals and guitar, Judy on lead guitar and vocals, Claudia on bass and vocals, and Ryan on drums. With catchy melodic vocals over dirty guitars and a killer rhythm section, their influences range from The Ramones and Slade to Chuck Berry and 60’s Motown girl groups.“
I love this band! Here’s their Fb page: https://www.facebook.com/babyshakesny/

Well, that’s it for today. Have a great weekend!
About Mike in Tokyo Rogers: Mike has been a professional music/TV/radio/anime-related program producer in Japan since the eighties. He began in the music business in 1977 as lead vocalist with the 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 (some real losers, too!) and several of Tokyo’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 “The Mike Rogers Show” every Sunday live on InterFM 89.7 in Tokyo and Radio Neo in Nagoya 79.5 and nationally broadcast on Radiko.jp (Internet radio). And his life’s dream is his just completed full-length motion picture, “Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock and Roll Ghost Story,” which enjoyed its World-Premiere at the Raindance Film Festival in London on Sept. 25, 2017, and was released by a major Japanese motion picture company and in theaters all across Japan from Sept. 2017 ~ Mar. 2018.
