OT 6 new old Tragically Hip songs

From 1990 and never released till now. All really good. Dual guitars on 'Ouch' reminds me of early Keith/Ron weaving. You just don't hear that anymore.

I went to my local record store yesterday & they didn't have it in their system yet. Can't wait, I miss the Hip.

In Gord We Trust. After their final tour in 2016, I was at Massey Hall in Feb 2017 to see Blue Rodeo (another Canadian band). Final song of the encore, Gord walks out and the entire building lost it’s collective mind. They played Lost Together and everyone sang at the top of our lungs. Much cheering and weeping followed. It was his last time on stage.

Hip are one of those bands that got so much radio airplay back in the 90s that I can pretty much sing along to all their hits even though I don't have the album! CF0X in Vancouver played them constantly. Love Blue Rodeo, too bad they didn't get big outside of Canada!

I think Ahead By A Century is my fave of their tunes.

Ahead By A Century was their last song played at their final concert. For those in The Rest Of The World who don’t know what the Hip meant to Canada, they did a final tour after Gord Downie was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. The last show, in their hometown of Kingston, was televised without commercials on the CBC and there were listening parties all over Canada, including outside the concert venue in Kingston, and at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto where they played many of their epic early gigs (that’s the place with the checkerboard floors referenced in Bobcaygeon). Here’s what that looked like:





The documentary of that last tour, Long Time Running, includes the following from band mate Rob Baker:


“I received a letter from a musician in Philadelphia. He followed the band for years, and he watched the last concert by himself. He bawled his eyes out. He said, ‘Rock’n’roll and bands are like hot air balloons that go up. If you’re really lucky, you get up to the jetstream and you travel really far and you see a lot. But at the end, you’re going to come crashing down. There’s always a bad end for a band.’ He said, ‘I’ve never seen a band—especially after a 30-year journey—land the balloon safely. They landed the balloon, and it was glorious. And everyone was there to cheer when it landed.’

Heartbreaking and beautiful. Thanks for the ‘new’ tunes gents.

I got a little misty myself watching the last concert. We get a Canadian TV station in Seattle, so got to watch it live. Bought the blu-ray, has the best concert sound I've heard on a concert video. The new record is awesome. Short but sweet.
