Last week I popped over to Ottawa South for an album release by Telecomo and a debut performance from Mushy Gushy. I haven't seen either band before, but there were plenty of familiar faces, starting with party rockers Mushy Gushy. Bassist Jonathan fronts Winchester Warm, singer David did time in The Gallop, drummer Kyle backed Kalle Mattson and guitarist Cory is also in Baberaham Lincoln. In fact about the only person on stage I hadn't heard before was DJ Lamb Rabbit, who seems to share my fondness for foreign language covers of popular 1960s tunes.
Guitar action with Cory and Daniel!
Bass action with Jonathan!
Hairy action with Kyle!
The whole lot!
More David and Jonathan!
Telecomo is another bevy of scene veterans, starting with frontman Adam Saikaley, who's most recently been spotted in Silkken Laumannand the Acorn.
Also in the trio, Bondar's Gary, who has also performed in an electronic duo with Adam and fellow Acorn Pat.
And so on!
Rhythm section action with Pat and Gary!
Hot stuff all around.
