It’s Top 3 Video time! The top 3 Indies artist’s videos chosen by the on-air team and me and given airplay on our FM radio show in Japan, “WTF?” (What the Funday?) for the week of October 9, 2015!
Today, first up is an artist from Zurich, Switzerland named “The Jackets.” Their webpage says, “Combining sixties garage, mod, ’77 punk rock, psychedelia and their devotion to bands like The MC5, The Monks, and The Music Machine, The Jackets bring a dynamic recipe to the garage rock ‘menu.'” And they’ve been getting lots of airplay recently in Hollywood on Rodney on the Roq! Wow! Well done!
#3) The Jackets – Wasting My Time https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypfe8kYz9Zk
Next up is a band from Los Angeles called, Hear Kitty Kitty. Their Facebook page describes them as a pop punk/rock/alternative band. This song was featured on another Top Video countdown that I did the song selection for, but I like it so much, it’s back! And, not to mention, they are currently touring the USA! You go Hear Kitty Kitty!
#2) Hear Kitty Kitty Lift Off https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATKfO0wKDcs
At #1 is this band called the Wavves and it is their debut on the countdown! Wavves is an American rock band, based in San Diego, California.
#1) Wavves – Way Too Much https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPdx7Il9DrM
FREEBIE! Finally, today’s freebie. This week is a Japanese rock band from Kyushu (Kyushu again!?) Kyushu is Japan’s Southernmost island (my mom was born in Kokura!) and this is the band’s third time on our countdown! Their name is Titty Twister! I LOVE THIS BAND! Here they are doing a cover of the Chula Vista California punk band, “The Zeros.”
FREEBIE (オマケ）: Titty Twister / Don’t Push Me Around https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RD2k44C1k4Q
