Tales from the Hip
Hey everyone welcome to my Tragically Hip page. Enjoy
>A quick Bio of the band!
Tragically Hip are a politically correct Canadian guitar rock band who have proved massively popular in their native country, and have earned comparisons to Green On Red and early R.E.M. further abroad. The line-up comprises Bobby Baker (guitar), Gordon Downie (vocals), Johnny Fay (drums), Paul Langlois (guitar, vocals) and Gordon Sinclair (bass, vocals). Downie is an accomplished songwriter, his keen eye evident on early songs such as 'Small Town Bringdown' in 1987. The band originally formed in 1983 when Downie, Baker and Sinclair were all studying at Queen's University. Quickly signed to MCA Records after a series of explosive live appearances, the Kingston, Ontario-based band achieved triple platinum status with their 1990 debut album Up To Here. It also brought them their first Juno Award as 'Most Promising Group'. Road Apples was promoted with tours of Europe and Australia. Another Juno Award followed the release of Fully Completely, which also achieved multi-platinum sales. The attendant single, 'Locked In The Trunk Of A Car', produced by Chris Tsangarides ( Lords Of The New Church, Concrete Blonde ), gave them their first Canadian number 1. Day For Night, while not offering any significant advance in the band's formula, consolidated their status as Canada's pre-eminent college rock group. They toured with Neil Young and the Rolling Stones, before releasing the reliably melodic Trouble At The Henhouse.
