Time once again for the Top 3 Indies artist’s videos for the week of August 21, 2015!
First up is a video that I tried a couple of years ago to get on another countdown that I worked on. But no! The hardcore fundamentalists who ran that TV station wouldn’t allow it! Those folks idea of hard core porn is a Victoria’s Secret catalogue! So, a couple of years late is still better than never, here’s Hanni El Khatib! Hanni El Khatib is a first-generation American, is the son of a Palestinian father and a Filipino mother. He worked as a creative director for a skateboard fashion label and for an advertising agency before starting musical career blending blues, folk and garage rock into songs designed (in his words) “for anyone who has ever been shot or hit by a train.” This is awesome!

At #2 is Louise Distras who is really making waves. The UK newspaper, The Guardian says, “Bold, brainy and ballsy, Louise Distras represents nothing less than the rebirth of British punk; reinvented for a new generation”.

At this week’s #1 is Veruca Salt. They are an American alternative rock band founded in Chicago, Illinois, United States, in 1993. They broke on March 14, 2012 up but reunited on March 15, 2015 almost exactly three years later to the day.
#1) Veruca Salt – Laughing In The Sugar Bowl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMeYDS9kZcE
Next up is a band from Japan that I think you are going to like, the are a 4-piece rock band name the Plashments. The Plashments formed in Tokyo in 2008. They create a British rock sound with a taste of the New York punk. I hear that one of these guys was a fan of my radio show a long time ago so they must not be idiots and they have some good taste and some fucking common sense! Ha! Ha! Ha!
I think you’ll like this! Check it out! The Plashments are hot!
