OTTAWA is truly lucky to have such a great scene these days with so many amazing bands. one of the more elusive ones is URANIUM COMEBACK. these guys played their 3rd show ever on friday night and they were incredible. their songs are so catchy they are going to be stuck in my head for weeks. if you still haven't seen these guys do yourself a favor and go see them next them they play. the bad news is that it probably won't be for a while but the good news is that next time they play they'll be playing a bunch of new songs. the only way to hear them right now is to track down their rehearsal videos that are up on a certain video sharing site. do your research.
SEDATIVES started recording our full-length this weeked. THE VISITORS are putting the finishing touches on their 7" that is going to be out on HOUSE PARTY RECORDS out of halifax. the label is run by GER who is the genius behind the ROCKET TO RUSSIA radio program which rules. THE CREEPS "THESE WALLS" 7" will hopefully be out some time in the early new year. fingers crossed. knock on wood. it's coming out on BLACK PINT RECORDS. speaking of which i don't think i ever mentioned that there was an interview with these guys on the RAZORCAKE website as conducted by DAVE WILLIAMS (SEDATIVES/FUCKING MACHINES). you can read the interview here.
