Hey! Happy Halloween! Time for the Top 3 Videos; the Top 3 Independent Artist’s videos of the week.
First up are the Monsters from Switzerland. The Monsters are fronted by a Rock N Roll Legend from Switzerland named Reverend Beat-Man (You might remember him as the goofy guy in the awesome video: Blow! Um Mau Mau). The good reverend is prolifically genius and has so many projects going on, you gotta wonder how he does it! This is the second time the Monsters have placed a video on the countdown.

#3) THE MONSTERS – More You Talk, Less I Hear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzCSRXPt40k
Next up is a new band named the Jacques that debuted on the chart just last week. I think The Jacques could be the hottest band from England since Suede and I’m dead serious about that. They do not appear in this video but I think this is one of the most well made lyric videos I have ever seen.
#2) The Jacques – This is England https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhGR2c1a4ZI
At #1 this week is another artist introduced to us by Cindy Kona in Hawaii. Cindy has a hotline phone to many of the top DJs around the world, so if you are an artist and need airplay all around the world, Cindy is your “Go to” person.
Cindy turns us onto the Fontaines. The Fontaines are a duo from Los Angeles and bill themselves as a “New-Wop” band. Cindy just can’t stop raving about this band, so much so that I checked it out and thought, “Hey! This is great!” If you like Amy Winehouse and that sort of music, I think you’ll love the Fontaines. This is quite melodic but with a twist… Definitely watch to the end. This ending is not what I expected.
#1) The Fontaines – Charlotte Fontaine https://youtu.be/VK6jdYs-mmk
Today’s Freebie… Did someone say, “Twisted”? I did?… OK, this is especially for my crazier friends like Ken Nishikawa and Kevin Riley. This is Mr. Diagonal and his Midlife Crisis… It, er, he, uh, well, I found this information: “Mr Diagonal’s Midlife Crisis is a groovy concept album about the male menopause to highlight some of the hidden facets of Mr Diagonal’s tortured soul.” (Go “Like” the Mr. Diagonal and his Midlife Crisis FB page, otherwise weird shit might happen to you too! https://www.facebook.com/events/966962883343026/)
Precisely! Exactly! That’s what I was going to say!
