It’s Top 3 time. Time for this week’s cream of the crop of new Indies artists and new Indies artist’s videos.
First up a tip o’ the hat to Mike Hannah from the Tokyo-based rock band, “The Goood Things” who turns us onto today’s first band. (Wanna see a fun party in Tokyo? Check out the Goood Things release party here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myX4Z_5um-4)
Today’s opening is a Tokyo band that, well, what can I say? This is really Tokyo Underground stuff! Loud, noisy, and I LOVE IT! Two crazy guys and a crazy female vocalist. Oh, and they have a cool webpage. Check the jacket art to their releases! Theee Bat Webbbbb (theeebat.fool.jp/batshop2014.html)
#3) Theee Bat – Feel Good https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTBRrsQKHY4
This week’s #2 is a group that is no stranger to our countdown (but they are definitely a bunch of strange people). They are lead by Bobby “Panti-Christ” Butler and they hail from Switzerland (???) and they are the shit! In fact, that’s what they are called, The Shit!
#2) The Shit – Too Old To Die Young https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tR0WGEecGPs
At #1 is a new artist introduced by our favorite scout for new music and happening things all over the world, Cindy Konain Hawaii. Cindy tells me that, “I found this band! They are so fabulous! The Fontaines! I’m sending you the best song AND there’s a wicked awesome video! They’re from Los Angeles!” OK, Cindy, here’s another #1 that you introduced to us. Thanks a million!
#1) The Fontaines – Paul Newman https://youtu.be/ODV7yn_tIgA
Finally today, I just love this artist! I have been playing their latest, “Go Fuck Yourself” on the radio a lot recently and a few days ago, they sent me this new video! Thanks Lola Dutronic! Check the Lola Dutronic FB page here: https://www.facebook.com/LOLA-DUTRONIC-80232595392/
Freebie: Lola Dutronic – I Believe https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=18&v=xCTikeiJLbs

Everyone! Have a great Rock and Roll weekend! See ya next week!
