It’s Top 3 Video time! The best of the Top 3 (duh!) videos chosen by vote by millions of young Japanese fans from all over the country! (OK, well, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration!).
At #3 is Doll Skin. An 4 piece-all-girl punk outfit from Phoenix, Arizona that was sent to us by Girl-In-The-Know, the mysterious Kona Cindy. But this is not the first time Cindy has pestered us to play this band! And it’s not their first time on our chart, either. I think these girls are still teenagers. They were just in Revolver online magazine….Here’s their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/dollskinband/
These girls are fucking hot!
