It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown for July 28, 2018!

Starting us off today is Stiff Love. Stiff Love are a 4-piece garage punk band from Olympia, Washington. This band features members of a number of other cool bands such as Beta Boys, Lysol, Freak Vibe, Lowest Priority, Mutant Cross, Very Mental and The Vitamens. Stiff Love were introduced to us by DJ extrodinaire Mr. Mick Fletcher at “Just Some Punk Songs” blog: https://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2018/03/stiff-love-up-in-your-room.html

I can’t find a Facebook for Stiff Love, but they do have a Bandcamp page: https://stifflove.bandcamp.com/

#3) Stiff Love – Up In Your Room: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBXsUiIxw5Y

At #2 is a band that is no stranger to the countdown, it’s Daisy House. from Los Angeles, California. The Daisy House bio says they are, “Folk-rock, Folk, Alt, Indie, Baroque & Roll.” Baroque & Roll? Cool. Today’s track, “The Defender” is from their album “Western Man.”

Daisy House has been getting heavy airplay on my FM radio show: The Mike Rogers Show every Sunday morning… (Mike Rogers Show – every Sunday from 5 am ~ 7 am. You can listen live on InterFM 897 in Tokyo, Radio Neo 79.5 in Nagoya or nationally broadcast (and On-Demand) on radiko.jp). 

Here’s their Bandcamp: https://daisyhouse.bandcamp.com

#2) Daisy House – The Defender: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sLNHUQXCT4

At #1 this week is a band from Milan, Italy (really!) named The Duke of Surl. This band is cool and I’m surprised to find they are from Italy. They certainly do not sound like a lot of Italian bands today. Their amusing bio says: “Building explosion proof doors by day…And explosive grooves by night.”

Here’s their Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDukeOfSurl/

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!
