Top 3 Video Countdown for August 30, 2019! Bad Mary, Tearaways, UNI, Killer Hearts!


We're back to the Top 3 Video Countdown for August 30, 2019!


First up today are the Tearaways from Los Angeles! The Tearaways are just finishing up a triumphant tour of the UK and even had Gelm Matlock from the ex-Pistols join them on stage the other night. Wow!

This video surprised me because at 1:17 of the video is a guy who looks just like me when I was 15! (Bottom center of the screen) Wow! A real-life doppelganger! 

Anyway, great job in the UK, Tearaways! Well done!

Here's their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TheTearawaysUSA/

#3) The Tearaways - "Burke's Law": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAAOLrzgf_I


At #2 is a band named UNI

Uni's "about" on Facebook has an interesting missive: "The course of history often seems wayward and chaotic. It’s the gum on the heel of your shoe that a homeless saint picks off and plops in his mouth to chew again.
Uni grows underneath your fingernails when you sit next to your parents in Church, digging them into the soft flesh above your knee. Uni dribbles from the mouths of sidewalk sleeping drunks and slithers into the throat of a politician to make him cough and loosen his tie. Uni was there during your first masturbation and first confession. Uni wakes you up in the middle of the night. Parents of America. A new phenomenon has taken over our youth. Uni wages war on the apathy and digital narcissism of 1st world ignorance. It is a cult of one, a cult of infinity. Jack James is the voice, a slender boy from Texas with a penchant for glitter and Oscar Wilde, who came down from another planet to be the rock star of the future. David Strange is the sword, a grisled poet and carpenter who can build anything, writing sonnets and summoning demons on his guitar. Kemp is the brain, a crazed scientist who composes prog riffs and surrealist visuals, leading the three into the great abyss. But you are the hands. Go spread the message."
Here's their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/unitheband/
#2) UNI - DESTROYER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfQJkjQavRw


At #1 this week is a band introduced to us by Alex Kish of Wassup Rocker radio fame. Thanks, Alex! It's the Killer Hearts! The Killer Hearts feature members from The Wrong Ones/Down n Dirties/and The Cops.

"Killer Hearts are a searing rock n roll band from Houston. - These guys are impressive to see live and they have the rock 'n' roll power "
-David Garrick of Free Press Houston

Here's the Killer Hearts Facebook page:

#1) KILLER HEARTS - Killed By Volume: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkbu7IU8W9U


SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today's Spotlight Artist is a band from New York who is currently touring Japan RIGHT NOW! They are called, Bad Mary!

Bad Mary's Japan tour final night is 9/2 at Shibuya Cyclone! We will be shooting a music video that day come hell or high water so be there! Details below and here.



Their bio states: "It’s not the 70s anymore in NYC – but the spirit of that era’s wild punk scene is alive, well and infused into the contemporary roar that’s blasting out of multi-generational Long Island based sensation Bad Mary. Building off the crackling success of their debut album Better Days – which garnered three first round Grammy ballot nods and whose “Forget About It” and “Don’t Know Where The Line Is” provided an edgy soundtrack to the 2014 NBA Finals – the foursome led by powerhouse vocalist Amanda Mac has a fresh bold task for their new EP: Killing Dinosaurs."

I Became Friends With a Legend! Josie Cotton!


It's summer in Japan. Every day is hot and lots of rain. 

I don't need a sauna at the sports club, I can just step outside for a minute and I'll be drenching wet! I hate summer in Japan.

Every week for the last 15 or 20 years, I have been making a Top 3 Video countdown. I first did it for a magazine that went bankrupt; then I did it for a friend who went and deleted his webpage, without telling me he was going to do it (I was really mad about that!)... Then I did it for a company webpage. But I stopped that because the page will no longer allow me to embed the videos into the page!

Now, since 2015, I started doing the Countdown for myself. I guess I will continue doing it this way until I die.

Every once in a while, an artist will write to me telling me "Thanks!" for posting their video. That is so nice of them. I really appreciate it.

It is so rewarding when an artist writes to me and says, "Thank you." Doing the Top 3 Video Countdown is a labor of love. 

This week, I got a lovely note from Josie Cotton! Yes, THAT Josie Cotton. She wrote to me:

"Hi Mike ! Thank you so much for putting my new video in your top 3 of the week with such unbelievably cool artists!! I'm very flatterred. It's always been my dream to tour in Japan but something crazy always happened 🙂 xoxo Josie Cotton"



This week's Top 3 Video Countdown is here: 
https://modernmarketingjapan.blogspot.com/2019/08/the-top-3-video-countdown-for-august-24.html

Josie Cotton! The legendary pop artist who wowed the world with "Johnny, Are You Queer?" and "He Could Be the One" from 1982, and so many other great hits? She was definitely (and still is) Hollywood In-Crowd!



Josie has a new single and I think it is fab. It's called "Ukranian Cowboy" and it is fantastic. Here's what her record label has to say about this great new track:

"Josie Cotton's videos from the B-Girls album and her Pussycat Babylon record took her fans straight to the drive-in; they were letters to film fans from another aficionado, one who was extremely adept at handling cinematic imagery and story telling. The clip for "Ukranian Cowboy" picks up right where she left off. Once again, the costumes and performances are straight from the seamier side of the motion picture industry. The star, who appears in the very first frame in a replica '60s B-movie poster, dresses the part to a T – and she gallops through the rest of the footage, high in the saddle with an electric guitar strapped to her back. But she's not riding her horse through the Old West. Instead, she encounters Russian dancers, soldiers, titles in Cyrillic, and the domes of the Eastern church. There's even a bear strumming a balalaika. It all works together brilliantly: an ironic testament to the artist's impeccable eye for connections and parallels that elude the average cultural observer. - www.JosieCottonMusic.com"

You can watch that video from Josie Cotton right here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xjuhmbg5Su0


Here is the Josie Cotton video that started it all! I LOVE THIS SONG! Johnny, Are You Queer?


I asked Josie to tell me. Is Johnny really queer?

She hilariously answered, "Flaming!"

Here's another Josie Cotton song that was a BIG HIT! 



Thanks Josie Cotton for writing to me. Messages like yours makes doing the Top 3 Video Countdown worth all the troubles every week!

Thank you so very much!

The Top 3 Video Countdown for August 24, 2019! Bad Mary, Starcrawler, Parsnip. Josie Cotton!


We're back to the Top 3 Video Countdown for August 24, 2019!


At #3 This week is Josie Cotton from Los Angeles! Today's track is her latest release! And who doesn't know Josie Cotton? Wikipedia writes: "Josie Cotton (born 1956) is an American singer and songwriter, best known for "Johnny Are You Queer?" and "He Could Be the One" from 1982. "Johnny Are You Queer?" was used on the soundtracks to Jackass Number Two and Valley Girl. "He Could Be the One" was used in Valley Girl."
Josie claims her influences are: "
The 60s, Wanda Jackson, Edith Piaff, Ima Sumak, Tammy Wynette, John Waters, etc..."

Here's her Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/josie.cotton.10

#3) Josie Cotton - UKRAINIAN COWBOY: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xjuhmbg5Su0


At #2 is a band who claims their music is "Queen Wave." They are Parsnip from Australia and they have been a big hit on my radio show (Mike Rogers Show!) The Inertia writes: "I was obsessed with their unbelievable sound and wanted to learn more about this all-girls group. The bob haircuts stood out so bright – a punctuation mark that kind of rounds out everything about their sound and their style. Sure enough, they were some of the nicest humble people I had ever met."

They have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/parsnipband/

#2) PARSNIP - Rip It Off:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d793e5N2YCo


At #1 this week is another band from Los Angeles who toured Japan twice this year! They are Starcrawler! Starcrawler will be touring the USA from the 4th of October!

In a performance review in The Guardian the band was described as "Blending the sludgy, doom-laden riffs of Black Sabbath with the urgent pop-punk of The Runaways, the young LA band Starcrawler are a group whose entire DNA seems linked to the 1970s."



#1) Starcrawler - Bet My Brains: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwzlySJJJQQ



SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today's Spotlight Artist is a band from New York who is currently touring Japan RIGHT NOW! They are called, Bad Mary!

Bad Mary's Japan tour starts 8/26! Details below and here.

The Top 3 Video Countdown for August 17, 2019! Tearaways, Rochelle Vincente Von K, Darts, Otoboke Beaver (Jpn!)

We're back to the Top 3 Video Countdown for August 17, 2019!


At #3 This week is the mighty Tearaways from Los Angeles! The Tearaways are hitting the shores of England just about now! 

Check their tour dates and reserve tickets here: 
http://www.tearaways.com/tour-dates/

Guys! Make us proud of you all in the UK! Today's video is another Stephen David Brooks masterpiece and the latest hit from the boys!

Here's their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TheTearawaysUSA/

#3) The Tearaways - Manchester Girl: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eh4Q7rbYXRA



At #2 is Rochelle Vincente Von K and her newest. "Outlaws."

Directed by Stephen David Brooks (oh and Rochelle wears that red dress from Stephen's award winning indie film "Flytrap"), "Outlaws" sees Rochelle and her band time travel from the 50's into the future with their baby blue T-Bird hot wheels. Who could believe that 2019 would look like this ?! As technology has progressed, how has our sovereignty and society progressed? What steps has humanity taken to nourish our global community since we now have the ability to reach further and wider? As guardians of our beautiful planet, and with more knowledge at our fingertips than ever before, what are we choosing to do every day to protect the home of all things living? 


#2) Rochelle Vincente Von K - Outlaws:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEXZNXmjvr8



At #1 this week are the Darts from Phoenix AZ and Los Angeles CA! The Darts explain themselves as: "Garage-psych-rock grrls make your head slam and your feet shake. And then there's the music."

The Darts further the amusement with this classic line: "If Elvira and Wednesday Adams consumed the flesh of man, drank shots of snake venom, started a band for the bride of Frankenstein’s bachelorette bash, that's us."

Here's their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/thedartsUS/

#1) The Darts (US) - Breakup Makeup:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBPqKzWHZkc


SPOTLIGHT ARTIST! Today's Spotlight Artist is a band from Kyoto called, Otoboke Beaver! Check it out! 

Otoboke Beaver is released by the UK label, Damnably records. Their bio states: "(they) are a punk-rock-garage quartet from Kyoto, Japan. The band’s name is taken from a local ‘Love Hotel’ and they describe themselves as: “Japanese girls ‘knock out or pound cake’ band”.
Formed in 2009’s summer in Kyoto, Japan. Live the band often invade the audience, often with guitarist Yoshie crowd-surfing whilst playing wild riffs flawlessly. Sonically, it’s crazed, deranged garage, punk-rock-pop at break-neck speed and everyone sings in Japanese, and often in Kyoto slang."
Uh, this shit is heavy!

----------------------------

About Mike in Tokyo Rogers: Mike has been a professional music/TV/radio/anime-related program producer in Japan since the eighties. He began in the music business in 1977 as lead vocalist with the legendary Los Angeles Punk Band, “The Rotters” (Sit on My Face Stevie Nix.). As a university student, he was assistant to the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer (Rodney on the ROQ – KROQ Los Angeles from 1980 ~ 1981.) Mike was the first and only foreigner in Japanese history to become the General Manager of a major Japanese broadcasting station (TV Tokyo owned InterFM). Has produced a few smash hit programs (some real losers, too!) and several of Tokyo’s highest rated and most famous radio programs. A recent hit Internet TV program was “The TV Show” (Set Program with “Ninja Slayer”) which, between April – Oct. 2015, garnered over 10 million viewers.  He is currently producing and hosting “The Mike Rogers Show” daily around the world!

Also, Mike is the creator and founder of the Mt. Fuji – Atami Film & VR Festival. Also his life’s dream is his just completed full-length motion picture, “Ghostroads – A Japanese Rock and Roll Ghost Story,” which enjoyed its World-Premiere at the Raindance Film Festival in London on Sept. 25, 2017, and was released by a major Japanese motion picture company and in theaters all across Japan from Sept. 2017 ~ Mar. 2018.  The DVD and Blu-Ray went on sale all across Japan on June 13, 2018! His next project, “Matsuchiyo – Life of a Geisha” world premiered at the 2018 Raindance Film Festival in Oct. 2018.
Mike is also an Official Jury member to the Raindance Film Festival in London making him the first person ever to serve as a Jury Member from Japan in Raindance Film Festival history.  

… Oh, and he likes to write about himself in the third person!
