Interview with Darryl Fine from The Bovine Sex Club (Toronto)

SO HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE BOVINE?
D: You know, 50% rock n roll cheers and 50% drop in center for local bands and bands that aren't local who make this their local space. that's kind of how the momentum has carried it, i mean when bands are on the road they need a place to go for a decently inexpensive drink where there's other band people, you know talk about their stuff... find girls, find bad things, find the booze.

Interview with Ontario's own Hello Bella!

HOW AND WHEN DID YOU GUYS MEET AND FORM THE BAND?
Steph : Hello Bella took formation in Aug of 2007 with Nic, Mitch, myself, and our old drummer Scott when we all met through a previous local project. After a year or so, Scott parted ways to focus on starting a family (He is still a great friend of ours) and we auditioned Rob to fill in. He has been a perfect fit since day one, and really brought a new sense of innovation to writing. Finally, last year (with the album in mind) we had an itch for an extra pair of hands in the studio. Matt, who is long time friends with our producer (Adam Miner), started helping out with the writing process and, much like Rob, there was an immediate connection. With Matt taking the reigns on guitar, it frees Nic up to add a new depth to our writing and live performance.
