It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown of the Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of Sept 9, 2017!

First up is Lisa Mychols with her latest song that there would be no way to find – because even the great I (Mike Rogers) do not know what the official name of this band – so you are in for a treat!  All Music says: “Lisa Mychols made an impressive splash on the Los Angeles pop underground of the 1990s, especially with her band the Masticators. Once the new millennium had dawned and that vibrant musical community had begun to emerge aboveground, Mychols had developed into one of its most accomplished songwriters, taking an obsession with the 1960s and 1970s AM dial and updating the sound for a new generation of pop/rock addicts.”

Sure, she has a FB page:  https://www.facebook.com/Lisamychols/?pnref=lhc

#3) Lisa Mychols – You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5EyNL5h1qY

At #2 is a song introduced to me by some guys who are running one of the best radio shows in the entire world – against all odds: Gabbie Cabbie and Chris Browne (Check out their show here: https://www.facebook.com/biscuitboys/) The Biscuit Boys introduce us to one of the coolest tracks of the year! Ya Freshness and “This is England!”

I LOVE THIS TRACK!!!! Check out more with Gabbie and Chris at SRB radio worldwide! www.srbradio.com

#2) Ya Freshness – This is England  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acUlzDzx_XE

This week’s #1 is the mighty Sold! And Bones. Another unnamed-famous-DJ-friend of mine told me that he likedThe Sold! And Bones, “Much better than Rancid!” Blashphemy!!!! Actually LOTS of fans in Japan are saying the same thing! And who am I to argue?

Here’s their Facebook page, don’t be stupid, go “Like” it NOW! https://www.facebook.com/thesoldandbones/

#1) The Sold! And Bones – I’m Right, You’re Wrong (Official Video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7JHhYKxm1Y

Spotlight Artist!  Today’s spotlight are another band that appears in “Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock n Roll Ghost Story.”  They are the mighty “50 Kaitenz.” One of the most fun and entertaining concerts I have ever seen in my life and I’ve seen a lot of concerts. Danny, the lead singer of the 50 Kaitenz is starring in Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock n Roll Ghost Story.

I love the 50 Kaitenz. Many years ago, I saw them the first time and thought, “This is Japan’s best rock n roll band!!” They are fucking funny, they rock and they are cool! The 50 Kaitenz are destined to become one of Japan’s most famous bands of all time. If you get a chance to see these guys, you HAVE to go. (Oh, and I’m going to make one of their next videos and rumor has it they have a new record/CD coming out!!!!!!)
