Top 3 Indies Artist Videos for Jan 15, 2017! Dénudés, Beck Black, †13th Moon† (Japan), Cabbage!

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 Jan. 15, 2017!

Today we have some extremely cool and dark rock n roll lined up for you. And, first up today are Dénudés. Dénudés are a “Fuzz Noir Dark Rock n Roll” trio from Miami, Florida. (Hey! What’s up with all these cool bands from Florida recently? Like Killmama?) I’m not sure but Dénudés is coming to play in Shinjuku in Japan in from March 23 ~ March 26! Wow! Check the live information here (http://www.denudesofficial.com/) Wow! How the heck did they arrange that! Cool! They also have a Facebook page too. Go be the first in your neighborhood to Like them!!!!! FB: https://www.facebook.com/d3nud3s

#3) Dénudés – Waste of Fun https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQv-IhNL3Ac

At #2 is another band that is turning heads in the Los Angeles scene. Their name is Beck Black and they are a trio headed up by a girl who looks like Marilyn Monroe’s stand in. This is the second time they’ve been on our countdown. The first time on the countdown was with the great track, “American Mister.” Check it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yl-y0kzl898

Their webpage says, “Beck Black delivers a bluesy punk experience with the dynamic soul of pure rock’n’roll theater.” This reminds me of Bowie or Suede with a female front…. Or Siouxsie Sioux… So, what’s not to like? They have a Facebook page too. You know what to do: https://www.facebook.com/beckblackmusic/

#2) Beck Black – Vampires Come Out at Night https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aOQUD6L8pBA

At #1 this week (and #1 for two weeks in a row) is the Brit band, Cabbage. Cabbage has been picked by several UK publications as the hottest new British band of 2017 (or something to that effect). They are 5 guys doing a post-punk thing. The Guardian says, “Cabbage have been described as “Manchester’s most exciting new band.” Their Bandcamp page says, “Manchester based five piece serving up an idiosyncratic, satirical attack in the form of discordant neo post-punk.” They are touring the UK in March and April and it looks like every show is about sold out! They have a Facebook page but probably couldn’t give a toss if you Like it or not. https://www.facebook.com/cabbagelechou/

#1) Cabbage – Kevin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hah4_gj-Bs

TODAY’S SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Is a Japanese Post Punk, Goth, Deathrock, Batcave band named †13th Moon†. This band is the real thing. I know because they dress like this all the time! Their influences are: Madame Edwarda, Phaidia, Auto-Mod, Christian Death, 45 Grave, The Damned, Bauhaus, The Cure, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Joy Division, Ipso Facto, 13th Chime, Sex Gang Children, Alien Sex Fiend, X-mal Deutschland.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, right? OK? Here ya go… †13th Moon† ! Awesome look. Great sound!

†13th Moon† Japan

                                                                      †13th Moon† Japan

I think this is the definitive Japanese goth band. I saw them live once and they scared me (I’m an old guy, OK?) I definitely want this band in my next movie! This is just awesome! Here’s their blog: http://x13thmoonx-drjp.blogspot.jp/ and, of course, they have a Facebook page. Go Like it: 

TODAY’S SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! 13th Moon – Grave Dance – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkacKIZ4KWQ

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 Dec. 18, 2016! Louise Distras, The Spitfires, Warbly Jets, Stephanies (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 Dec. 17, 2016!

First up is a girl named Louise Distras who is really turning heads in the UK and beyond. New Noise Magazine describes her as, “…the 21st century Joe Strummer who personifies punk rock spirit and renegade soul.” Today, Louise covers Green Day! She says about this fun track: “Watch me and my gang of girls pay homage to punk legends Green Day in this cover of ‘Nice Guys Finish Last’ we recorded for the Kerrang Magazine ‘American Superhits’ CD! Enjoy!” Yep. She’s got a Facebok page too. Go dig it! https://www.facebook.com/ldistras?fref=ts

#3) Louise Distras – Nice Guys Finish Last https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTovvrsx3cg

Next up is a band that I was turned onto by the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer (Rodney on the Roq – KROQ Los Angeles.) They are 4 guys from Los Angeles named the Warbly Jets and they are hot! They say they like to make noise. I think this is kick ass rock n roll. Been playing them on my Sunday FM radio show, “WTF?” too! Check out their Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/warblyjets/

#2) Warbly Jets – Alive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDVHvirhpKk

At #1 is a hot new band from Watford (I guess that’s in England!) named The Spitfires. Gabbie and Chris over at The Biscuit Boys introduced me to this band and I have to say that this is one of the best finds of the year! Gabbie asked one one of his Biscuit Boys programs, “Why isn’t this band huge?” I can’t answer that. Once you hear them, you’ll think the same thing too! (you can check out Biscuit Boys broadcast times and other information here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/thebiscuitboys/)

Here’s what people are saying about the Spitfires:

”Just about the best thing released this year” – Vive Le Rock
“A snarling proletarian polemic against the daily grind” – Classic Rock
“The fight-back from the beaten generation starts here” – Daily Mirror

Of course the Spitfires have a Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/TheSpitfiresUk/

#1) The Spitfires – On My Mind https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4c77IvvpOM

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today’s Spotlight Artist are three girls who will be guests on my Sunday FM radio show this week WTF? (Dec. 18, 2016) and they’ll be appearing at my free New Year’s Party (See poster below). They are hot and they are called The Stephanies. They just released their debut album in September and here is the title track. Go LIKE their Facebook page too here:

Top 3 Indies Artist Videos for Dec. 11, 2016! Ginger Wildheart & Ryan Hamilton, The Stompin’ Riff Raffs (Japan), Pale Honey, Family Friends!

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. 11, 2016!

First up is an Indie rock band from Sweden that consists of two girls and a guy named “Pale Honey.” They debut on our countdown at #3 with their newest single, “Real Thing.” They have a Facebook page. Go check it out. https://www.facebook.com/palehoney/

#3) Pale Honey “Real Thing” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mEsH2_qB7M

Next is an Indie pop duo from “London and Melbourne.” I can’t find any information about these two but can tell you that they both have to last same name… I’d bet half a donut that they are brother and sister by looking at their photos on Soundcloud. I can’t find a Facebook page for them or any other information.

#2) Family Friends – Look the Other Way   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVc3QtyHK3c

At this week’s #1 is a song that Ginger Wildheart & Ryan Hamilton made for a charity to help people with Chronic Depression. Columnist Tom Girard writes: “In a nod to his well documented and ongoing battle with depression the ever prolific Ginger Wildheart has found time between touring with his own band, Hey! Hello! and The Wildhearts and recording a new Mutation album to team up with Ryan Hamilton and sneak out a single for the festive season, the subtly but suitably titled Fuck You Brain… Available through Ginger’s Round Records Bandcamp page the three track single is raising money for the Samaritans and aiming to highlight the problems people have with depression…Belying all the preconceptions one might have of depression Ginger and Hamilton have created a short sharp dose of glam rock laced pop punk – putting the sounds of the early 1970s run through the Wildhearts filter to create something reminiscent of the Silver Ginger 5.”

Top 3 Indies Artist Videos for Dec. 4, 2016! David Bowie, Su Ko D Koi (Japan), Lover, David and The Curse! robot55.jp/blog/top-3-indies-artist-videos-for-dec-4-2016-david-bowie-su-ko-d-koi-japan-lover-david-and-the-curse/

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. Their name is Su凸ko D凹koi (Just say, “Su Ko D Koi”) They are releasing their first full album on Jan. 11, 2017! AND they are going to be guests on my radio show, “WTF?” tomorrow morning (Dec. 4, 2016)… Not only that, they will headline at our free New Year’s Party (tickets are free, but you have to have a reservation! If you want to g, see information below the video! 

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Su凸ko D凹koi (すっとこどっこい) 「ブス」 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCTjm5YGJ-c

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! First up is a band that was introduced to me by my friend Satoshi Miyaki. Another cool Japanese girl’s rock band!… But wait a minute! There’s a foreign girl in the band playing guitar too! Way cool! Their name is the Twinkle Twinkles. I know NOTHING about them as I have written to their label and have received no answer (that actually happens surprisingly a lot!) But when I played them on the radio on my Sunday show, everyone seemed to like it. Here’s the Facebook page for the Twinkle Twinkles: https://www.facebook.com/Twinkle-Twinkles-229909200404887/?fref=ts

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
