Top 3 Videos 9/16/17! Amyl & the Sniffers, Cambodian Space Project, Mackshow (Jpn), Shame!

It’s time once again for the Top 3 Indies Artist Video Countdown of the Top 3 best Indies and Alternative Music artists for the week of Sept 9, 2017!

First up is a band that is my favorite new band of the year. In fact, I think Amyl & the Sniffers are one of the most fun and exciting acts to come on the scene in years! Monsieur Sean Thomas Bohrman, the head cheese at the world’s coolest label, Burgers Records, wrote TODAY about Amyl & the Sniffers: “Got to release one of my very favorite new bands today on Burger cassette – Amyl and The Sniffers from St Kilda, Australia!!!” Damn! Sean is a man with awesome great taste!

Amyl & the Sniffers have a Facebook page too. Don’t be the last on your block to go “Like” it:

#3) Amyl and the Sniffers – Balaclava Lover Boogie

Oh, and don’t forget to check out Amyl & the Sniffers on my regular Sunday FM radio show, “WTF?” (Every Sunday 8 am ~ 10 am) in Tokyo and Nagoya (also nationwide on where we play this band like a religion. Heck, I played 4 of their songs last week.  (Please come “Like” our FB page too:

At #2 are the Cambodian Space Project which has now landed in the USA and is touring at this very moment in the space – time continuum. YOU MUST NOT MISS THIS CHANCE TO SEE THIS WAY COOL BAND! Go check their Facebook page here to see when and where they will be appearing near you:


At #1 is a band from South London that rocks! They are 5 guys named, “Shame.” I read a review of these guys that said, “Utterly brilliant. Shame are a breath of fresh air in a world of vacuous youth pop.” OK. I would agree with that. Shame are also touring the USA at the moment and you can see their live schedule here on their Facebook:

#1) Shame – Tasteless

Spotlight Artist!  Today’s spotlight artists are another band that appears on the soundtrack of  “Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock n Roll Ghost Story.”  They are the Mackshow from Tokyo, Japan. The Mackshow are hot rock n rollers and their bio describes them as, “Japanese Rock & Roll icons of the 21st century. They have a unique concept that incorporates leather jackets, regent hair-style and Japanese rock and roll of the “Showa Era” (1960’s~80’s). They are a three piece R&R band.” 

Check out their Facebook page. These guys are cool (and have a great sense of humor!)

Spotlight Artist! THE MACKSHOW – THE MACKSHOW – Nana Han Kozo’s Theme

Cool and Strange Music Countdown – Dec. 21, 2015 – Bennie Melwin, Cambodian Space Project, The Rebel Scumbags

We’re back to the “Cool & Strange Music Countdown.” Welcome one and all! If you like this countdown every week, please come “Like” our Robot55 Facebook page (or friend us on Twitter or subscribe to our Youtube page). Thanks!

Today’s countdown has a decidedly Rock and Roll edge to it. First up is an animation that is completely made up from still photos. This might be the best adaptation yet to Electric Six’s “Gay Bar” from 2003. In the Electric Six original, Abraham Lincoln was the hero of the video, but in today’s, Bennie Melwin has updated us quite a bit and uses Vladamir Putin! The creepiness, as well as the quality of the animation, just make it perfect.

#3) Bennie Melwin – Putin Depardieu Love Story

Next up is a fab band from Cambodia of all places. This band has several really good videos but I picked this one today because of all the foreigners in it. It reminds me (and inspires me) of all the great foreign bands we have in Japan. Srey Thy, lead singer of The Cambodian Space Project, was recently appointed as a Good Will Ambassador for UNiTE, a campaign to stop violence against women worldwide.

#2) The Cambodian Space Project — Have Visa No Have Rice

Finally, just in time for Star Wars is a band from Los Angeles that has been making waves and been getting airplay on the world-famous KROQ! The band is called “The Rebel Scumbags” and they describe themselves as a “Geek n Roll” band.This song is hot and funny! Just released on December 14, so it’s hot off the presses! Thanks once again to Kona Cindy for the hot tip!


Well that’s it for this week! May the farce be with you! – Mike (in Tokyo) Rogers
