The Bella Bombs, Nanook and David Bowie

My hero, rock's most sophisticated icon, David Bowie turned 60 this week. As coincidence would have it, on the same day, I adopted a lovely puppy with mis-matched eyes (one blue, one brown). I wanted to call him something clever like Ziggy, but he seems rather attached to his given name, Nanook. I'm slowly going through my Bowie repertoire with him. So far The Man Who Sold The World has really got his tail wagging. And Rebel Rebel could be a defining song for him as we still have plenty of training to get through! He's a real cutie and is enjoying his new home with us. I look forward to introducing him to the gang at CHUO! (If you're looking for a pet, please consider your local humane society or a rescue organization.)

Hopping the Fence tonight are Ottawa's BELLA BOMBS! 3 chicks and a dude, the Bella Bombs will be tearing up the stage at Babylon for their CD release party this Saturday. Their new disc, Liquid Explosion will rip your punker heart to shreds. Join us at 5 p.m. for our chit chat with da bombs!

There are going to be alot of people on stage at Zaphod's this Saturday during a special triple bill featuring 2 of my fave Ottawa bands, My Dad vs Yours and As The Poets Affirm. Headlining the evening are Toronto's ROCK PLAZA CENTRAL led by Chris Eaton and 6 bandmates! The band have been galloping up the college charts with their latest disc "Are We Not Horses". A few months ago I was tickled by Ox's remake of an old classic rock song, Surrender. Now Rock Plaza Central give us their take on Justin Timberlake's current dance hit "Sexy Back". This sort of stuff really gets me giggling! Check it out on YouTube:

We'll be phoning Chris this evening to get the dirt on horses and other stuff...

It's all happening on CHUO FM at 89.1 on your FM dial in Ottawa. Or listen on-line at:
