Welcome back to the Top 3 Video countdown. The Top 3 Indies Artists Videos for the week of Feb. 27, 2016!

First up of a band that was introduced to us by the queen of the beautiful party girls in Los Angeles, Asia Muka (I hope she doesn’t get mad at me for saying that… It’s just my impression!) Asia takes care of some really cool rock’n’roll bandsHere’s the Black Mambas from Los Angeles! This is a video shot while the boys were touring in Europe for their “Black Mambas Rock’n’Roll Fuck Shit Up Euro tour 2015!” Here’s their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/blckmambas/

#3) Black Mambas – 2 AM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABb_sTUf60g

Next up are three girls who debuted on our countdown just last week! The Baby Shakes! I love them! I’ve been playing them on our radio show too and Kona Cindy arranged for the girl’s to be on Rodney on the Roq’s show last week. Rodney says the baby Shakes are the “Female Ramones!” I think they are like a cross between the Bangles and the Ramones… (So, I mean, they remind me of the “Bangs” – which is what the Bangles were called when they first got together. These girls are HOT! Here’s their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/babyshakesny/?fref=ts

#2) Baby Shakes “I’ll Be Alright” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRdniLrEzLc

At #1 is a band fromPhoenix, Arizona, the Love Me Nots. I have been playing this band on my radio show for a few years now and I’m happy to be introducing them to you here.  They describe themselves as “fuzz-and-farfisa, rocknroll!” This band rocks! I love it!

#1) The Love Me Nots – Don’t Let Him https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XySc2Oof3H4

Spotlight Artist! Every week on the countdown I try to add a bonus track and introduce something special. Usually, I strive to show you good folks some great Japanese underground bands. Today, we go to the vaults for a three girl and one guy band from Kyoto named “The Soap.” I am a big fan of this group. The video was made by Ken Nishikawa and me. (Ken did all the hard work – I slept on the sofa during editing!)
