Top 3 Indies Artist Videos for Dec. 4, 2016! David Bowie, Su Ko D Koi (Japan), Lover, David and The Curse!

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown. The Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of Dec. 4, 2016!

First up is a band named David and The Curse. David Stücken is the driving force behind LA-based rock band David and The Curse. Their debut album entitled, “An Epitaph For Love” is due out in early 2017. This is a hot track that’s getting lots of airplay on my radio show, Rakuten Superrr Radio. This song is a bonafide hit (and the video features some hot babes!) Here’s their Facebook page too, if you’re interested: https://www.facebook.com/davidandthecurse/

#3) David and The Curse – She Loves The Night https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6z1oCoAQFU

At #2 is a band from London named Lover. This is the second time they have appeared on the countdown this year. This is their latest single called, “White Bears.” Lover is fronted by Sarah and the goal of the band is to, “Make dark and strange appealing.” I like this a lot as it has a definite glam streak to it. They have a Facebook page and it has lots of interesting content. Go check it out: https://www.facebook.com/LoverTheBand/

#2) Lover – White Bears  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ib_p8Iclq4

At #1 this week is a video by Mick Rock. It is a rework of the 1973 Life on Mars video. Normally, I wouldn’t put this on the Top 3 because it is not a new song or artist, but , well. It’s BOWIE! David Bowie! Bowie is god! So what else is there to say? Of course there’s a tons of Bowie fan sites on Facebook and all over the map. Go check it out. This remix/remaster is OK… Interesting… But I think I still prefer the original.

#1) David Bowie – Life On Mars (2016 Mix) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UipTt-qqZOE

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today’s Spotlight Artist is one of my favorite Japanese girl’s punk band’s of all time.

But when I played them on the radio on my Sunday show, everyone seemed to like it.

Top 3 Indies Artist Videos for Nov. 19, 2016! Garage Rockin’ Craze (Japan)! Spitfires! Orwells! Maddy Jane!

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown. The Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of Nov. 19, 2016!

First up is a band introduced to me by Gabbie Cabbie, a guy who hosts a GREAT internet radio show, called, The Biscuit Boys in the UK. Check it here: http://sports-radio.co.uk/biscuitboys/. The band the Biscuit Boys graciously bring to us are called the Spitfires. They are four lads from Watford in England. They are getting RAVE reviews too! These guys are gonna be famous! You watch. Here’s their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TheSpitfiresUk/?fref=ts

#3) The Spitfires – So Long https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZ7AxEM13XQ

Next up is an band from Illinois of all places. They are a “Dirty ass rock n roll band” consisting of 5 guys who call themselves, “The Orwells.” Their third album comes out next year Feb. 2017 so you are getting a real preview treat here today! They have a cool Facebook page with a hot naked blonde on it. No, really! I’m serious. Bet you a half donut you’ve already clicked their FB link right here: http://www.theorwells.com/terriblehumanbeings?ref=https://www.facebook.com/

#2) The Orwells – They Put A Body In The Bayou https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvoKjjF6Yf0

Next up is a real treasure I found by stumbling around in the dark on the internet. Her name is Maddy Jane and she is from Tasmania… Yeah, you know, the deepest darkest secrets of Aussie-world! I found this video yesterday and it only had 142 views. I then sent it out to my friends in the industry and all the usual suspects… They all dig this big time. Now, here she is just for you! Maddy Jane is gonna be a super star… How many times have I been right about that over the last 30 years? Here’s her Facebook page, go be the first person to be cool amongst your friends and go “Like” it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8iSVTjmYn0

#1) Maddy Jane – Drown it out  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8iSVTjmYn0

SPOTLIGHT MUSIC (MOVIE TRAILER!) On our weekly countdown, I usually spotlight at least one cool Japanese rock band. Today I’d like to introduce a hot new film that’s coming out in Japan called, “Garage Rockin’ Craze.” Garage Rockin’ Craze is about the Garage Rock boom in Tokyo and how it all started. This iconic film was made by my friends Mario Cuzic and Bryce Clarke. They overcame mountains of troubles to finish this fab film. I am so proud of them! By the way, the film comes out in theaters in Japan on Jan. 14, 2017 and runs for two weeks until Jan. 27, 2017… Go see it! By the way, I was able to get a sneak preview and thought it was a an exciting film. The entire time I watched, I thought, “God! I wish I had been there!” Well done, Mario and Bryce!… By the way, when you gonna be a guest on my radio show so that I can brag to everyone that I really do know you?

Top 3 Indies Artist Videos for Nov. 12, 2016! Suzy Blu, Candy Ditches (Japan), RPMs, Seth Bogart!

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown. The Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of Nov. 12, 2016!

First up is Suzy Blu from Leeds. Her webpage says, “Dark electric pop from Leeds (UK). Suzy Blu combines heavy old school beats with layers of feedback drenched melody, and experimental driving bass. Suzy Blu is a writer and poet who serves her black coffee vocals on a plate of electronic post-punk attitude.” Today’s track is the 4th of 6 singles she is releasing before the end of 2016. It’s fab! Been giving it lots of airplay on the radio. Here’s her Facebook page too: https://www.facebook.com/suzyblufanclub/

#3) SUZY BLU – In The Dark https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CeL8FkhapB0

At #2 is a brand new band from Brighton England. They are called the RPMs. They descibe themselves as, “A rock band not afraid of a good pop tune – they are inspired by the likes of Tom Petty, The La’s, Arctic Monkeys and The Who, but with a little something all their own.” We’ve been playing this on the radio a lot too. They have a Facebook page too! https://www.facebook.com/TheRPMsOfficial/?fref=ts

#2) The RPMs – ‘I Think It’s Stupid But I Think It’s Love’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_-v_EkAt3g

At #1 this week is a great artist and musician with a sense of humor that the grandparents probably won’t appreciate. Chuckle! His name is Seth Bogart. Seth Bogart is/was the lead vocalist of Hunx and Punx. He has one of the most interesting and fun homepages I’ve seen in a long time. Check it here: http://sethbogart.com/

He also has a fun FB page too: https://www.facebook.com/sethbogartofficial/

#1) Seth Bogart “Eating Makeup (featuring Kathleen Hanna)” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoNkQOKi1gY

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! On our weekly countdown, I usually spotlight at least one cool Japanese rock band. Today is a 3-piece garage rock band from Tokyo who call themselves the Candy Ditches. Candy Ditches consists of three guys who just got together about a year ago! Wow!… Seriously, that’s about all I know about these guys. This song and video is WAY COOL! Play it at maximum volume! Oh, they have a Facebook page too: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=850819668322785

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! The Candy Ditches – Death Ray  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulXFFUsTgEU

Oh, and if you like these artists and these hot tunes, I will be playing all these songs on my FM radio show tomorrow, Sunday November 13 (“WTF? on InterFM 897 8 am ~ 11 am) on a PC or smartphone? Here: http://radiko.jp/

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

Top 3 Indies Artist Videos for Oct. 29, 2016! Love Zombies, Louise Distras, NØISE, Shonen Knife!

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown. The Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of Oct. 29, 2016! And it’s ladies nite once again! All female or female fronted bands!

First up today is a band from London and Los Angeles that call themselves the Love Zombies. The Love Zombies are fronted by Hollis and Davey and this is their latest single. It’s fab. Go “Like” their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/lovezombiesband/

#3) Love Zombies Birthday  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzJO9ibXJ-U

Next up is Louise Distras. Louise Distras is an alternative rock singer-songwriter from Wakefield, West Yorkshire. I’m pretty sure, though, that I did read somewhere that described her as “The revival of British Punk” (or something to that effect) so that’s why I first checked her music out and I was not disappointed! She’s on tour throughout England and going to Germany and other parts of Europe soon, so go check it out if you have time. Here’s the tour schedule. Go “Like” her Facebook page too! https://www.facebook.com/ldistras?fref=ts

#2) Louise Distras – Aileen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zi5XTi38zlw

At #1 this week is a great song along with a really great video. The band is called Noise. Their webpage says: “Noise” has myriad connotations… a sound, a sonic disturbance, a fluctuation in a transmitted electrical signal, and so on, but for the moment, tune out the noise and tune in to NØISE. NØISE is the name of the musical endeavor that sees Shepard Fairey, known for creating iconic artwork, such as the Barack Obama “Hope” image, and the Obey Giant campaign, teaming with veteran musicians John Goff, Merritt Lear, and Joe Cassidy. This band is HOT! Sorry, I can’t find any Facebook or Twitter or anything else besides their webpage: http://www.noiseproject.com/

#1) NØISE – Little Lions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Wo2gtkxnao

 SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! On our weekly countdown, I usually spotlight at least one cool Japanese rock band. And since today is Ladies Nite, here’s Japan’s most famous female band ever: Shonen Knife! They are currently on a US tour and I hear they are getting rave reviews! Check out their Facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/ShonenKnifeOfficial/?fref=ts

#1) Shonen Knife “Like A Cat” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4d1Nup38Do

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

Top 3 Indies Artist Videos for Oct. 22, 2016! The Shit, Honeyblood, Black Honey, Spam69 (Japan)

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown. The Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of Oct. 22, 2016!

First up is a Garage Rock And Roll outfit lead a mysterious character known as Bobby “Pantichrist” Butler along with 4 other conspirators who make up an awesome group known as “The Shit.” The Shit hail from Switzerland in a town they refer to as “Bern, Baby, Burn!” This hot track is from their brand new 10 inch record entitled, “Rue du Chocolat.” They are even having a release party tonight… I wonder if I can make it there in time to crash it? Here’s their Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/ILoveTheShit/

#3) The Shit – Corvette Summer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=td2F9P5f990

Next up is a girls duo from Glasgow, Scotland named Honeyblood. Their newest album, “Babes Never Die,” is due out in the USA next week. I really like this a lot. American disc Jockey Alex Kish of Wassuprocker radio says of the new Honeyblood, “This is the most excited I’ve been about a new record in a long time!” Go Like their Facebook!  https://www.facebook.com/yumhoneyblood/

#2) Honeyblood – Ready For The Magic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04S6K1jlOkI

Today’s #1 is an artist that just toured Japan in August. They hail from Brighton, England. The Guardian writes: “Black Honey are one of the indie bands to watch for 2016. They’ve been under the proverbial radar for over a year and in fact they rather like it that way – “If it was my way we’d still be a secret band,” claims the singer – but unfortunately they made the mistake of writing songs with potential mass (indie) appeal. The usual Annie Macs, Huw Stephens and Phil Taggarts have been clambering to support them, and Spotify plays by actual humans are fast approaching the million mark.” Here’s their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/BlackHoneyUK/

#1) Black Honey – Hello Today https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kyfzabjXf4

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today’s Spotlight Artist is a punk rock band from Tokyo named Spam69. These guys have been signed to Mystic Records in Los Angeles and have been on our Top 3 Video countdown in the past. Today’s video is hilarious! Here’s their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/THESPAM69/

I’ve also been playing this regularly on my FM radio show “WTF?” and will play again tomorrow, Sunday, October 23, 2016. Check it out! http://www.interfm.co.jp/wtf/

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Spam69 Fuck You, Fuck Me  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFaZRwX7ZO8

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

Top 3 Indies Artist Videos for Oct. 15, 2016! Chris Catalyst, Suzy Blu, Garbage, Su Ko D Koi (Japan)

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown. The Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of Oct. 15, 2016!

First up is a guy who was introduced to us by Ginger Wildheart who is a regular on our Top 3. Introducing Chris Catalyst. Chris is a “Bloke in some bands” and he is from Leeds, England. He is coming out with his solo debut. Here is his FB page, go “Like” it. https://www.facebook.com/ChrisCatalystMusic/

#3) Chris Catalyst – Sticks and Stones https://vimeo.com/184529502

Next up is Suzy Blu. Coincidentially, Suzy Blu seems to be from Leeds too. Wow! I like Suzy a lot and she is getting great reviews! Check it! Suzy is putting out one single per month from July 2016 to the end of this year. Here is item #3. Here also is her Facebook page for more info: https://www.facebook.com/suzyblufanclub/?fref=ts

#2) SUZY BLU – Kill Your Friends, For Fun https://youtu.be/w3hJcPjHbqI

Finally, at #1 is Garbage and their newest single Magnetized. Why did I pick this as this week’s #1? Well, because the little girl who plays Shirley Manson as a child, is my niece! No kidding… Well, not exactly my real niece… But I am proud enough of her and her dad (who is one of my best friends and a legendary stand up bassist) to call them my own. Shirley Manson and Garbage are awesome. Lenore, the little kid, is a natural… And, perhaps a future star? I can see her doing sequels and starring as Carrie….. Lenore! Great job! Well done! Don’t dream it. Be it! 

#1) Garbage – Magnetized https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcfOmhGJ8G4

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today’s Spotlight Artist is a hot Japanese girl’s rock band from Tokyo named Su Ko D Koi. These girls have been on our Top 3 Video countdown many times. in the past. This time they’ve made a play on Offenbach’s “Heaven and Hell.” (I know that because, even though I am an old punk, I live in a house with classically trained pianists.) Offenbach’s “Heaven and Hell” used to be a staple at children’s Sports Days at elementary schools in Japan… So this is quite humorous for the Japanese. These girls went to music college so now you know the rest of the story. I love this band. Here’s their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/ssttddkk/

I’ve also been playing this regularly on my FM radio show “WTF?” and will play again tomorrow, Sunday, October 16, 2016. Check it out! http://www.interfm.co.jp/wtf/

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Su凸ko D凹koi (すっとこどっこい) 「元カノ地獄」 “Former Girlfriend’s Hell.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIv1VlnRWyw

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

Top 3 Videos for Oct. 2, 2016! Dwarf! Sandinistas! Pats Pats (Japan), The Coathangers!

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! https://www.facebook.com/musicbyDWARF/?fref=ts

#3) Dwarf – To Close to the Flame https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GNbftGifzo

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! https://www.facebook.com/thesandinistas/

#2) The Sandinistas – Ready To Blow https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik74yCjG7S4

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: https://www.facebook.com/TheCoathangersATL/?fref=ts

#1) The Coathangers – Perfume  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lamnVPiNeOg

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: https://www.facebook.com/patspats/?fref=ts

Oh, and they will appear as guests on my regular FM radio show “WTF?” tomorrow, Sunday, October 2, 2016. Check it out! http://www.interfm.co.jp/wtf/

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! THE PATS PATS – Girls Talk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGd5wESg3Rk

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today’s Spotlight Artist is another Japanese girl’s rock band from Tokyo named Kinoko Hotel (Mushroom Hotel). Kinoko Hotel is a Japanese woman four piece band. They describe themselves as “Garage punk, inspired by rock ‘n’ roll sounds of the late 1960s, but characterized by mushroom-hair.” I love this band!
