The Top 3 Video Countdown for July 13, 2019! Honeychain, Palaye Royal, Bad Mary, Tomboys (Japan)!


Welcome back the Top 3 Video Countdown for July 13, 2019!


First up today is a trio from Los Angeles and they are called, Honeychain. Honeychain's bio says: "We're an alternative rock band from LOS ANGELES. New album, CRUSHED, produced by Kim Shattuck, available now!" and, "We've been compared to some cool bands. This makes us happy."

Here is Honeychain's Facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/honeychainmusic/




Next up is a band that is coming to Japan and will perform at WWW in Shibuya on Sept. 9th! They are Palaye Royale! Palaye Royal's bio states: "Rightfully christened as both “The Hottest Band of 2018” and simply “the” group of the year, by the English music press, Canadian fashion-rock trio PALAYE ROYALE is a shot of adrenaline into the modern musical landscape. Summoning a thrilling spirit, with throwback sonic crunch, visual flair, and reckless live performances, PALAYE ROYALE has quickly earned a legion of obsessive cult-like loyalists, lovingly dubbed Soldiers of the Royal Council.
PALAYE ROYALE draw as much inspiration from cinema and philosophy as they do from their musical muses, building a story with libertine reverence for Alan Watts and debauchery-fueled nights at the Chateau Marmont, for Johnny Thunders and The Stooges. This band is equally at home in the hallways of Los Angeles Fashion Week or climbing the lighting tresses at the Vans Warped Tour. They sold out theaters on their first-ever headlining tour and steal the show at each major festival."

Here is their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PalayeRoyale/

#2) PALAYE ROYALE - You'll Be Fine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NchEFDH4kQM


At #1 this week is a band from Long Island, New York, called, Bad Mary. Bad Mary is also touring Japan starting August 26 ~ Sept 2. 


Stencil Magazine writes about Bad Mary: "Bad Mary capture something perfect with their style of punk rock. [They] deserve all the appreciation they get, they’ve produced a brilliantly fun album and in the process have put across this feeling that they are having fun with what they do. Anyone who likes old school punk and hard indie should check these guys and girl out as they are fantastic."

First up is a band that is coming to Japan at the end of August, 2019. Their name is Bad Mary. You can check out their Japan tour schedule here: 
https://www.facebook.com/badmaryband/ 

Their bio states: "Drawing influence from the likes of Blondie and The Ramones, Green Day and Paramore, Bad Mary has created their own strain of punk that takes you back to New York in the 70’s but with a modern vibe. Following on from their critically acclaimed debut, Better Days, released in 2013, the high octane four-piece group – led by powerhouse lead singer Amanda Mac, Mike Staub (bass/vocals), Bill Mac (drums) and David Henderson (guitar) – split their latest blasts of infectious, in your face songs into two driving EPs, Killing Dinosaurs (2015) and We Could Have Saved the World (2016). The band makes their home on Long Island, New York and have played classic venues such as Arlene’s Grocery, Bowery Electric, Trash Bar, and Highline Ballroom. Bad Mary were in the lineup of Warped Tour when it hit Jones Beach in 2015, the Liberty Music Festival in Philadelphia in 2016, and have scored airplay on U.S., U.K. and Australian radio." They've also been on the radio on my shows LOTS!
Here's Bad Mary's Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/badmaryband/


#4) Bad Mary - Next to You: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9I5LMSjL_o


Next up at #3 is a band that was introduced to us by the all-knowing, Cindy Kona (The curator to the stars!). The band's name is Syteria. Syteria has a great pedigree! From their online bio: "Featuring Jax Chambers from the legendary Girlschool, Keira Kenworthy, Julia Vocal (Calvo) and Pablo Calvo, Syteria are a four piece UK rock band formed in 2015. "

Yup! They have a Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/syteriaband/



At #2 this week is a band introduced to us by music critic Stossy Reid! Mr. Reid says that this album could be "The Best Album of 2019!" You listen to this and you be the judge.

There is little known about Kung Fu Girl excepting I can't find their Facebook page nor their Twitter page. So, I guess we have to trust the opinion of Stossy Reid!

#2) Kung Fu Girl - Anorak.


At #1 this week is a band that does not need an explanation because they'been famous for over two decades! It's Shonen Knife and their latest brand new song!

Here's Shonen Knife's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ShonenKnifeOfficial/
