It’s time once again for the Top 3 Video Countdown. The Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of Oct. 1, 2016!

Starting us off is a hot new act from Mesa, Arizona (I think)… They are an Alternative Music Trio that I have been playing on my radio programs and will world debut their great new song, “Pizza,” tomorrow on WTF? But for today, here is a song that really caught my ear the first time I ever heard it, “To Close to the Flame.”

They have photos of the band members petting cows and stuff over at their FB page… That’s not something you see everyday!

#3) Dwarf – To Close to the Flame

Next up, at #2, is trio from Wales who call themselves “The Sandinistas” (been playing them on the radio a lot too!) The band is Dan, Slim & Scott. Their FB page is here. Go be the first one in your neighborhood to Like it!

#2) The Sandinistas – Ready To Blow

At #1 are The Coathangers. Wikipedia says: “The Coathangers are a Punk Rock band from Atlanta. The band formed in 2006 as a joke. After playing a house show, they were asked to open for The Hiss on the strength of their performance. The name “Coathangers” refers to a method of self-induced abortion and was chosen for its irreverent vulgarity; all of the band’s members are pro-choice. They have opened in New York City for the Black Lips. Here’s their FB page:

#1) The Coathangers – Perfume

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today’s Spotlight Artist is another hot Japanese girl’s rock band from Tokyo named The Pats Pats. The Pats Pats are a duo (as far as I know – I’ve seen different drummers for them on their Youtube videos). They are appearing with Peach Kelli Pop on 10/8(Sat) at Shimokitazawa Bayd… And, get this, it says, “Free food and Good music and more fun times” on their FB page. Check it out:

Oh, and they will appear as guests on my regular FM radio show “WTF?” tomorrow, Sunday, October 2, 2016. Check it out!


That’s all for today! See you next week when we return to the Top 3 Countdown – Mike in Tokyo Rogers
