We make great radio all year long and rarely take the time to stop and appreciate what we do so we are throwing parties four Thursdays in a row at The Record Centre! Other parties will feature Fire Queen, No Mistakes in Space, So Sensitive, Plant Legs and more!

We have a unique community powered, listener supported approach to radio. CHUO 89.1 FM provides hyper-local, independent, and diverse programming unparalleled in the city. We are an independent bilingual, community station broadcasting on the FM airwaves since May 31st, 1991. We are a small not-for-profit organization with two full-time, one part-time and three student staff members. Broadcasting in over 10 different languages and playing many different styles of music: indie rock, hip-hop, soca, reggae, jazz, funk – you’ll hear it all on CHUO. We have our finger on the pulse and we love spreading the word about what’s happening in our city.



Expanda Fuzz. Hallowe'en Ice Cream. BOO! 


Here's a new single just in time for your Hallowe'en party DJ needs. 'Hallowe'en Ice Cream' is a fuzzy treat filled with spirits and spooky guitars, served up on a Ouija board.

Spook out with us on Bandcamp here:



Expanda Fuzz release 'The Last Of The Who Heads' EP, play launch show

Hey Expanda Fuzz pals, 

We've got some new music to share with you, from our garage to yours:  

'The Last Of The Who Heads' is a brand new track some of you may recognize from recent live sets. 

The second track on this EP is a cover song called 'Cheerleader' which was written by Jeff Kainz and legendary Ottawa band 'Werbo' (Check out his amazing new band, Coastal Pigs).  

The downloadable EP is rounded out by a live version of our Bleuets song 'Psychopaths In Lukewarm Baths', recorded this summer, live-to-air on CJSW's 'Saved By The Bell' during Sled Island.  

And as always, the ultra cool Pez-inspired artwork is by Expanda Fuzz's own Niki Nine Doors

LIKE VINYL? To celebrate our upcoming release show with our pals Costal Pigs (who are also releasing a record that night) on Sept 28th at the House of Targ, we're releasing a SUPER limited 12" lathe cut: 

Side A: 'The Last Of The Who Heads'  

Side B: 'Cheerleader

And all 12" lathes come with a download card that includes the live version of Psychopaths In Lukewarm Baths (from our Bleuets EP).  

Folks who come to our show get first dibs on these 17 copies. Yep. SUPER limited.

Get our first album Bleuets here: 

"This two-piece would be equally at home playing to the beard-strokers at a Warhol Factory Party as they would be ignoring their neighbour’s angry knocks for making too much racket in the garage". - Sled Island

"Sometimes some stripped back rock'n'roll is just enough, add in the darker garage edge, and that's enough boxes ticked for me!" - Beehive Candy

"Expanda Fuzz may be my new favorite band." - Brent Oliver, Artistic Director, Up + DT Festival, on Twitter

Expanda Fuzz
was conceived attempting to rip apart a Pink Floyd song with a distorted bass and a fuzz-driven guitar through a ripped speaker cabinet...while playing to a Roland 404 sampler. The result of that experiment can be heard on the duo’s new record ‘Bleuets’, where they showcase their brand of catchy, droney, post-punk songs that hook heavily into a psych-garage sound.

Think Kim Deal fronting the Velvet Underground, or Mary Timony jamming with Suicide. And while that initial Pink Floyd cover has yet to surface, many more Expanda Fuzz releases are planned for 2017.
