It’s time for the very first indie chart from Bugs of 2010! Since I now know the chart is updated on Thursdays, I’ll try to post the top 10 on Thursdays too from now on. Not just to keep it more current, but also because I have plans for another weekly chart to take over the Sunday spot.
Bugs Indie TOP10 – January 7, 2010
1. 9 and the Numbers – 말해주세요 [Hyang]
2. Super Kidd – 내 맘대로 [MV]

The new additions to the TOP100 list are the following:
48. Thomas cook – 새로운 아침

100. Honest Melody – 똥골게
My Aunt Mary vocalist Thomas cook had his so far only solo album, Time Table, released in 2001 together with Moonrise Compilation 2 serving as a bonus CD. In 2005 it was released again, although this time with a bonus track (친구) featuring Lucid Fall. The song that surprisingly (even more so since I coincidentally found myself listening to his album last weekend for the first time in many years) ended up in the upper half of Bugs’ indie chart this week features Sweetpea.
Once the guitarist of heavy metal band Iron Rose (where rock ballad man K2/Kim Sung Myun debuted as vocalist), Park Jong Seo is set to release single Remember The Friday on January 12. Although I suspect from the album info that the title is related to a band called Friday where Park Jong Seo was a bassist, it’s fun to note that Iron Rose participated on the first Friday Afternoon album back in 1988.
Keeping it digital, male indie rock quartet Honest Melody followed debut single 아이고 좋아라 from April with two track release 똥골게 on December 18.
