At #2 is a mysterious band that I stumbled upon while collecting records for weirdos at the last record collectors fair. Didn’t know if I should put it in the Top 3 or in the “Cool & Strange Music” countdown so I thought, “Why not both?” They call themselves, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Monkey & the Robots.” They describe themselves as a “60s garage, rock, rockabilly, garage punk, surf band from Detroit.” Here is their FB page.

In fact, they will be performing with this week’s #3 artist, Black Honey, at the Astro Hall in Harajuku on August 19th and appearing at Summersonic that weekend. This show will become legendary! See them before they become big!

#1) The Mirror Trap – Under The Glass Towers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xz5zaf7NlEI
SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today’s Spotlight Artist is a Japanese Punk/Garage outfit that cracks me up. They are 6 crazy mo-fos that put on a wild rock n roll show. They kind of remind me of an Iggy and the Stooges on Spam. They’ve been around since 2011 and they are from Tokyo, Japan. Their name is Spam69.
OK. I have to explain. English speaking people will think this name is “Spam sixty-nine,” (which is also a great name), but the name of the band is, “Spam Rock.” You see, the numbers “69” are read in Japanese as, “Ro Ku.” Get it? “Roku,” “Rock.” I love these guys balls out attack on rock music as well as their sense of humor. Here is their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/THE-SPAM69-295272680531003/?fref=ts

Well that’s it for today. See you next week – Mike in Tokyo Rogers
