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. 27, 2016!

First up is a band named Flyying Colours. Quick! Here’s their webpage. Go subscribe and get a free Mp3 download of a track called, “Wavy Gravy” (that I played on my Sunday show several times!) Flyying Colours are a psychedelic Shoe-Gazer band from Melbourne. They spell their name wrong 😉 so it’s easy to find them… But here’s their Facebook page anyway. Definitely go Like that!

#3) Flyying Colours – It’s Tomorrow Now

At #2 is a brand new band named the Regrettes. The Regrettes are a Garage Pop outfit featuring three girls and a guy from Eagle Rock, California. Here’s their Facebook page

#2) The Regrettes – Hey Now

At #1 this week are four guys from Atlanta, Georgia. They say they like to play rock n roll music and party. I have been playing these guys just about everyday on my daily radio show on Rakuten Superrr Radio and the reaction has been very good. The Future Babes also have a Facebook page, go check it out:

#1) The Future Babes- Cold Blooded

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:

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Twinkle Twinkles / Summer

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


About Mike in Tokyo Rogers: Mike has been a professional music/TV/radio/anime-related program producer in Japan since the eighties. He began in the music business in 1977 as lead vocalist with the crappy but legendary Los Angeles Punk Band, “The Rotters” (Sit on My Face Stevie Nix.). As a university student, he was assistant to the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer (Rodney on the ROQ – KROQ Los Angeles from 1980 ~ 1981.) Mike was the first and only foreigner in Japanese history to become the General Manager of a major Japanese broadcasting station (TV Tokyo owned InterFM). Has produced a few smash hit programs and several of Japan’s highest rated and most famous radio programs. Recent Smash Hits were “The TV Show” (Set Program with “Ninja Slayer”) which, between April – Oct. 2015, garnered over 10 million viewers.  He is currently producing and hosting “WTF?” the smash hit Sunday live show on InterFM 89.7 as well as Rakuten Power Morning everyday Mon. ~ Fri. 6 am ~ 10 am. His life’s dream is a motion picture which is near completion that he wrote and produced. The title is “Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock and Roll Ghost Story” which will be released by a major Japanese motion picture company and in theaters all across Japan in Oct. 2017. Oh, and Mike drinks too much.
