It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown for July 14, 2018!
Starting us off today if a fab group from Bristol, United Kingdom! Three ladies who call themselves, “IDestroy!” Look at these awesome review the ladies have been getting:
“IDestroy really have delivered the goods with their second EP, an explosion of riotous energy that makes you want to get up and throw something, or possibly yourself, across the room.” – Kerrang! Magazine
“If you like your rock’n’roll short, sharp and spiky, then Bristol grrrl rockers IDestroy might just be your favourite new band. They snap, they crackle, they pop, and they wear studded leather jackets with a feisty punk sneer.” – Classic Rock Magazine
“Pure Joy of Life” should propel them into the next level – radio, TV, festivals and stardom.” – Louder Than War
Of course, they have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Idestroyband/
#3) IDestroy – Lemons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNzP30FPPPs
Next up at #2 are a band who was introduced to us by Alex Kish of Wassup Rocker Radio fame. The band’s name is “The Speedways” and they list their hometown as “Squaresville” all the while their bio is a mystery. The Speedways do, though, claim their genre is: “ClassicPowerPop/HeavyOnTheHeartacheRock n Roll/’RonettesPunk.'”

#2) The Speedways – Just Another Regular Summer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iah-NZBFQlw
This week’s #1 are Sweden’s best 60s Beat, Mod, Rock band, The Most! Holy Shit! The Most are so famous and fab, they even have a Wikipedia page! Wow! The Most bio says, “The Most is a Beat band from Umeå, Sweden… Drawing inspiration from old Blues, Jazz, Bluegrass, 50-60s Soul, 50-60s R&B but also from bands like The Zombies, The Kinks, and The Who, their music has been described as 1960s retro pop.”
Besides that, the Most graced the soundtrack of “Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock n Roll Ghost Story” with a today’s killer track! (For more on”Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock n Roll Ghost Story” scroll down!)

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 Internet TV 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 he is the creator and founder of the Mt. Fuji – Atami Film & VR Festival. Also 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. The DVD and Blu-Ray went on sale all across Japan on June 13, 2018!
