Title: The Tragically Hip
Post by: DavidB_Bubbles on Jun 16, 2005, 10:40 AM
Ok so I have been musically deprived for years and never heard of The Hip until the TPB season's 1 & 2 DVD came out and I saw the "Darkest One" video. Well I became a fan and have In Violet Light and In Between Evolution on cd. Since this group has been out for close to if not over 20 fucking years does anyone here have any recommendations as to what other cd's I should buy? The local BestBuy here only have had those two in stock but I can get some on Amazon. Thanks :cheers:

I happen to think that the Hip are the best band in the world!  My 2 favorite CDs of alltime are "Fully Completely" and "Up To Here", their breakout album in Canada.

In Violet Light and In Between Evolution aren't my favorites but I love all their other CDs.  Gord Downie's solo stuff is interesting as well.

Here is a thread about song recommendations:

http://www.trailerparkboys.org/forums/index.php?topic=35.0

They have a lot of good unreleased songs on the web as well, this site will point you to some amazingly good songs and live performances.

pretty much every album other than the self-titled debut is a must have.

i don't know about best band in the world, but one of if not the best Canadian band of all time.

I didn't like "In Violet Light" that much either, the HIp are one of the best Candian bands, them and Sloan are my in my favourites

Yeah EVERY HIP CD IS GOOD.  Even the new ones are good.  People that keep expecting Road Apples everytime they release a new cd don't have a clue about Gord Downie.  The guys a musical/lyrical genius.  Greatest Canadian band of all time, no one is even close.  Except Sandbox maybe.

I agree Downie writes some amazing lyrics, one of the best storytellers of alltime.  It's always interesting to see him perform live

But don't just take our word for it...

From

http://www.modernfix.com/features/45/trailerparkboys.htm

Rob Wells...

"Rob Wells leans way more toward The Tragically Hip. I like a broad range of music. But they are definitely up there. I’ve really enjoyed their music over the years. One of the best live shows. When Gord is on, Gord is on. There is no better front man in the world. He is unbelievable."

Mike Clattenburg...

"In particularly I really like Gordon Downie’s (singer of The Tragically Hip) solo projects."

If you listen to their unreleased songs you will find that some of them are better than the ones that made it to CD.

A friend of mine "Fabe" is actually in one of Gord Downies videos "Pascal's Submarine" or something like that. He plays one of Gord's buddies who helps him steal a sub. Fabe also played the guy who sold the car to Ricky in Season 3 Episode 1. I have been searching for the video online everywhere, and come up with jack shit. Any helpers?

Post by: shake on Jun 17, 2005, 10:09 AM
Cool OD.  Yeah it was “Pascal’s Submarine” and the video was directed by Clattenburg.  Not my favorite song on the CD by any means but it is a great video.  I can’t find it anywhere to download either.  I do have it on one of my VHS tapes but finding it is another story.

Not that I encouage boots but when I had the store I use to have some of the best Hip Boots, my fave was the show I was at in Barrie,  it was one of the Canada Day shows and they did "Killer Whale Tank", any real Hip fan knows what i'm talking about.

If you've ever seen the band play live, there's usually a point in the middle of "New Orleans is Sinking" where the band just goes off into the void. The music changes and Gord goes off into another world, totally unrelated to the song. Sometimes, he tells some kind of stream-of-consciousness story, the most famous one would be the "killer whale tank" monologue. That's how "Nautical Disaster" was born. It grew out of that famous experimental middle section of "New Orleans is Sinking."

Post by: Chantal on Jun 20, 2005, 11:49 AM
I have to agree with Shake and say that The Tragically Hip are indeed the best band EVER! As for recomendations, I'd say Fully Completely and In Between Evolution... Why no one else seems to like that album, I don't know because I think it's fucking amazing.
But, if you really want The Hip at their best, check them out live. I've only seen them once, (lasy summer at the Sudbury BluesFest) but I really would love to see them again.

When I hear the begining guitar chords of "The Darkest One" I get happy and I think of the Boys and all my cool ass pals on the .ORG at a big party. I play my own little video in my head :)

"One Bucket."

Yeah "killerwhaletank" is a classic.  The link I provided earlier

http://www.geocities.com/stephendame/unreleased.html

can tell you about the song and you should be able to get a download.  

Like I said before there is shitload of unreleased stuff from the Hip out there that is brilliant.  Here are a few more write-ups about their unreleased stuff from that site:

Double Suicide: Probably the best known of Gord's rants, made famous by the Roxy and Elsewhere bootleg. Received huge exposure for an unreleased song on Southern Ontario radio stations such as 97.7 HTZ FM in St Catherines and Q 107 in Toronto.

The Double Suicide rant is hilarious.  "And we'd laugh".  Downie is funny as fuck in general.

Three of my favorite unreleased songs:


Blonde Solid: Fully Completely outtake whose lyrics were inspired by a painting Gord saw. Played live on 4/18/92, and brought back during jams in 1996-99.  

Get Back Again: Gorgeous ballad written by Gord Sinclair, played often in 1990. It was eventually recorded for Road Apples, but never released. A fan favorite, it was brought back every once in a while, and even played live on the radio in 1992. Last played in Kingston in February, 1995. Among diehard Hip Heads, it remains the most requested of the unreleased material, and is perhaps the most deserving of a release.

Montreal: Road Apples outtake. Played live during 1991. The lyrics resurfaced a lot during Courage on the Canadian leg of the Henhouse tour in 1996 ("The snow is so merciless/Poor old Montreal"), and then it was played in full in Montreal on the 2000 "Evening With" tour. It was inspired by the murders of 14 women at the Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal on December 6, 1989. One bootleg (mistakenly) calls it Don't You Worry.

Not that I encourage boots either but this music is too important to be kept a secret.  I recommend downloading the unreleased stuff but you really should buy the Hip CDs they really are that good.

One of the extras on the Season 4 DVD, Bubbles is in his shed with Steve French and decides to sing him a song.

Sung to the tune of "Bobcaygeon" by The Tragically Hip the part that goes

"Cause it was in Bobcaygeon
where I saw the constellations
Reveal themselves one star at a time."

Bubbles sings

"It was in Ricky’s weed field
I found Steve French the kitty
cocksucker revealed himself one paw at a time."

Fricken’ hilarious Bubbles even does a MILD impression of Downie singing.  He couldn’t do a full-blown impression or Steve French may have gotten spooked.  Nobody wanted to make any quick movements around him.

Not last summer but the summer before Gord Downie played a solo show with the band he was touring with at the time,  it was the Mariposa folk festival and it was sweet. There were a ton of people there to see them, then the rain started, nobody left,  we all went to the front and danced. After my wife and I stuck around and met him and the rest of the band,  Gord just couldn't get over how everybody stayed and danced even though it was pouring rain.Magical night:)

Cool Ghostdog.

Yeah I saw Downie with his “Country of Miracles”, the backup band for his CD “The Battle of the Nudes” twice.  The first time was two years ago? When Ottawa hosted the Junos.  They had a “Concert for Peace” night at Barrymore’s.  I saw a shitload of talent that night, but my fav was when Gord came out and sang the famous folk song “If I Had A Hammer” a song he recorded for the peace album.

I also saw him with his full “Country of Miracles” band at the Ottawa Bluesfest, he was awesome.  One of the band members actually screamed out a couple of TPB references.  I later saw them on MuchMoreMusic Intimate and Interactive, once again a great performance.  In the question part, they had Bubbles come on the screen and ask him what happened to the “warm buns, macaroni salad…” he requested from the Darkest One video.  Gord then says “Oh yeah I have that right here” he then reached into his pocket and flipped Bubbles the bird, ala Ricky ha ha.  Gord was right, the deal they agreed on was clearly 2 buckets of chicken and a drive to the liquor store, that fuckin Bubbles is a shit-disturber.

I think the reason why most people outside of Canada really haven't heard that much of The Hip is because us Canucks have been trying to keep all the good Canadian music to ourselves (and we send the rest of the world crap like Bryan Adams, and Celine Dion...to represent us. make everyone else in the world think that Canada produces crappy music, so they won't come looking for more music from the Great White North, and steal it away from us!) but we keep all the good stuff like The Hip to ourselves!

Pick up their CD "Up To Here" it has some of my favorite Hip songs on it, like "38 Years Old", and "Blow at High Dough" Some good tunes, you are required to wear a touque bearing a logo from any Canadian NHL hockey team, drink a two-four of Canadian, or some Canadian Whiskey while listening to the CD....

From his Halifax days (I assume he is still there). Last time I saw him was during the New Year's Eve/New Year's party at the Attic when Dead Red played the Attic. I was in Halifax for the two weeks surrounding the Labour Day weekend and did not see him. I have known him since the time we worked together at Sam The Record Man in the Mic Mac Mall, which was about 6 years ago now.

The Hip are a must-see whenever they come near here.  In high school, a friend and I took a train to Detroit to see them play and it was great. Scary getting to Chene Park, but cool once we got there.

The last 2 times I saw them was on New Year's Eve in Hamilton.  I'm praying that they do it again this year. oh, actually there was also that last Molson Park show in Barrie.

Roadside Attraction, Another Roadside Attraction, Kumbaya Festival, Edenfest...all were great.  There don't seem to be as many big "camping fest" shows around anymore.  Or am I just getting old?  I can't relate to some of these new sounds.

Killer Whale tank is classic!  It's fun to be able to laugh in the middle of a song.  Gord Downie is a rare talent.

The live stuff is pretty impressive, sounds great and really well done.  I have a couple of bootleg live Hip CDs and, of course, the quality on the DVD is much better which is a treat.  I’ve been flipping around trying to get a sense of what’s on the DVD, there’s a lot of really artsy stuff.  Personally I got a big kick out of seeing the footage of Ottawa in the film macroscopic.  They show the band leaving the Grey Cup game in Ottawa, where they played half time.  They walk out onto a bus and drive down Bank Street, pretty cool.

I've been a big fan of the Hip ever since I was oh around 13 or 14 when I got my first hip CD Day for Night.


I just picked up the box set last night, and was listening to the live world premier of the release of it with the hip on the radio and it was a really good 1.5 hr segment, they played some stuff from the box set, there 2 new tracks from it and talked a bit about the live DVD "that night in Toronto"

If you looking to pickup some more albums sine your a recent fan I recommend you put the $50 down and get the box set, it is well worth it. I'm proud to say I placed my vote for what songs to make the box set online a few months back  8)


And there are quite a few American's who do like the hip, you would be surprised, I have a few friends in the states as far as texas and south cali and there big hip fans.

I really like the song “The New Maybe”, it’s a very “pretty” song.  I’m not near as keen on “No Threat”.  I don’t always like Hip songs when I first hear them, but I don’t think I’ll ever like that song.  .  I usually at like the lyrics at least, but I can’t make out what Gord is singing.  I couldn’t find the lyrics on the net yet.

Awesome Sarge, great clip.  No one can tell me they aren’t the best band in the world right now.  I tried to view that trailer before at the www.thehip.com but I couldn’t get through, thanks for posting it. 

Gord: "Bring out your dead, bring out your dead".  He's a TPB and Monty Python fan, the man knows his comedy!
 

Also there’s more downloadable stuff out there, you should be able to get the songs they played on SNL, Grace, Too and Nautical Disaster, great performances.  Too bad the clip of ND cuts out before the song ends.  The great Robbie Baker often waits until the song is finishing to kick it into high gear on the guitar, and the clip ended before he got going. Dan Akroyd, also from Kingston Ontario, home of the Hip, hosted the show and was very proud to introduce the group to the US.

Wow, too bad you've never seen the HIP live.  If you get the HIP box set they filmed an entire concert, "That night in Toronto" .

Which is awesome, filmed at Air Canada Center last year.

The Hip's new album title is...
By JOHN WILLIAMS

The Tragically Hip has finally let the world in on the title of the group's forthcoming album.

Gord Downie and Co. have decided on "World Container" as the follow-up to 2004's studio effort "In Between Evolution," according to the band's official website.

The album is set to arrive in Canadian stores on Oct. 17, while the first single, "In View," will hit Canadian radio in two weeks.

"World Container" was produced by Bob Rock, whose extensive credits include Metallica, Bon Jovi, The Cult, Bryan Adams, Simple Plan and The Tea Party.

More details of the release as well as tour plans are expected in the coming weeks. The Hip has one Canadian tour date on their schedule, at the Ovation Music Festival in Stratford, ON on Sept. 9.

The band road-tested some of the new material during their recent live dates. Some of the new tracks that were performed and which are expected to appear on the disc include "Pretend," "Fly," "The Drop Off," "Ocean" and "The Lonely End Of The Rink."

I'm a hip fanatic.

www.thehip.com
they have a song of the day feature that is pretty awesome.

basically a new live track every day (monday to friday).  check that out.

right now they are playing "in view" though.  the first single off of the new album.  the song is a bit different than typical hip fare.  there is like a xylophone or some shit in there.  but as is the case with most hip songs, after a few listens, the song won't get out of your head.

the song is also being played on their myspace page.

if you want some live vids of the hip you can check out my myspace page at

Thanx again!
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Gortron on Aug 26, 2006, 05:52 AM
Cool, like i said though, after they play that for a few days they will go back to the "live" song of the day.  which is pretty awesome too.

also to the guy or girl that was loving the preview clip for hipeponymous.  i have the full song on myspace if you want to check that out.

I went to a Hip concert at the Halifax Forum in 1990 or 1991.  The rink foolishly set the floor up as beer garden style seating, it was great for the opening acts, I shared my chair with a cute girl from work.  When the Hip came on, everyone was up on the tables.  The tables all broke.  I'm pretty agile so I spent most of the time balanced on a chair on top of the high corner of a broken table.

The Hip took no breaks and played hard and maybe just a little faster what they had on their albums.  I don't know if anyone else on here saw them tour that year, Gordie was on a kick of starting his intros with "This is a song about..." and then adlibbing whatever weird shit came to mind. Apparently 'Twist My Arm' is about masturbating with a friend for the first time.

Oooh my fuck ...

Got a little exited there. I'm buying tickets as SOON as I can.

Anyways, *breathe* I bought the new album the day it came out and I LOVE IT. Terry, from the local radio station even went as far as to call The Lonely End Of The Rink the best song The Hip have ever writen. I don't really agree ... That would have to be Membership. But it IS a great song and an awesome album.

Also, I watched them on The Hour last night. They had an interview with Gordon and then they performed a few songs from World Container. I was gonna rush on here and tell everyone but my fucking internet was being dumb.

Gord live is just too cool.

Alright, enough fangirl-ish rants from me. :lol:

My only complaint w/ WorldContainer is that its only 11songs. They are all inspiring. My fav. is Luv(sic) and InView. And FamilyBand too fer sure. This album is wwwicked!

GoodLuck on your presale!

But everyone else in canada doesn't really pay too much attention to BC anyway, unless they're playing Toronto on the early game, waiting for their buddies package in the mail, or a fresh shipment of Kokanee.

Phew! Just managed to get a couple of tickets for the Toronto show - I've been on the road all day and was concerned I'd missed it already!

I had an awful experience once with TicketBastard when I was in the US buying tickets for The Strokes - because I was a UK citizen they my card was declined (no idea why) but didn't tell me until I rang up days later to fnd out where my tickets were! Much begging, screaming and shouting later, they finally gave me the tickets.

Man that sucked. The show was ok, BUT.......

the Hip has rules....

2 door access only....didn't get in till the opening act was well off the stage.

Everyone was patted down head to toe.

Bar closed when show started. I got 1 beer. I was about 4th in line when they closed the cage.

Only the first 3 rows were allowed to stand up and dance freely.

Oh and it was over by 10:15.

Enjoyed the music but the whole event really drained the fun oout of it.

Initially I thought it was the facilities rules but was informed the these were the Hip's rules. I wish I was runk as fuck.

The Hip's Downie driven to perform
By DAVID SCHMEICHEL -- Winnipeg Sun


It can't be easy, being the Tragically Hip.
Think about it -- you're one of the biggest bands in Canada but barely make a dent in the American market, your back catalogue has been keeping cover bands in business for decades, and fans can just as easily switch on the radio as buy one of your CDs whenever they're in the mood to hear your music.
Of course, the glass-half-full way of looking at things is that you've also served as the soundtrack for countless real-life coming-of-age stories over the years, fans can recite the lyrics to your songs better than their own national anthem and in the pantheon of patriotic, proudly Canadian music-makers, well, you rank right up there.
But that's just our opinion.
"I don't worry too much about what we should or shouldn't be," Hip frontman Gord Downie told the Sun recently. "I remember reading something recently about Chris Murphy from Sloan ... saying he wanted his record to be a polarizing thing and that he wanted Sloan fans to fistfight over his record.
"He wasn't being literal, but you get the inference. He wants -- well, I don't know what he wants, but I thought to myself, at the risk of sounding immodest, that we already have that and we've had that for a long time.
"People, it's almost the second thing (they ask) when they meet someone from somewhere else in Canada, especially abroad -- 'Where are you from, and are you into the Hip?' And the answer will either be resolutely yes, or resolutely no."
That relationship between the Hip's music and their listeners has helped cement the band's status as one of the most influential and ubiquitous in the country, as well as allowed it to be judged on its merits and nothing else.
"It's not because of our sparkling personalities or because we're intrinsically Canadian," Downie says. "It's about the tunes."
For instance, he says,"My 11-year-old daughter just listened to that new Killers track, like, 44 times in a row. That's no different than what I do and what I've always done when I get something I like.
"You play it over and over and over again. You almost think, 'Well, this is indulgent, I can't possibly play this again, can I? No I am. I'm going to play it again, because it's the only thing I want to hear.' That's about all I could ask for."
Of course, Downie has had more than music on his mind since the Hip (Rob Baker, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gord Sinclair round out the roster) released their latest album, the Bob Rock-produced World Container. In addition to his solo work and poetry, he's also been working as a trustee for the Lake Ontario Waterkeepers, a group that advocates on behalf of residents of smaller waterfront communities that have been affected by industrial pollution.
And while that may sound like hard work, it's gotta be easier than the Hip's now-legendary live shows, which tend to find a seemingly-manic Downie delivering one his trademark enigmatic rants.
"I generally stagger off the stage," says Downie of the toll taken by his performance antics. "But if I'm staggering from some kind of moment of transcendence, where I feel like I've just been taken somewhere, then I don't mind. Generally, I can't escape it. I've tried different ways but I can't escape the punishment. The blues have to hurt, I guess."
See how badly Downie gets hurt when the Hip return to MTS Centre on Saturday night with opening act The Sadies.
Tickets are $39.50, $55.50 and $69.50 at Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.ca or 780-3333).

there hasn't been a concert ive been to last year that still made trouble about a digi cam even though all the tickets had a warning on the back that they're not allowed.ofc i dont know if the mentality about it is adjusted in Canada , from Cappys post id understand indeed why you feel reluctant to bring one. Ive never been to a concert with rules like that!

maybe the hip fan site will bring out a dvd off it too

We were allowef to bring in cameras SMG. There were tons of people that had them and security never took them away. I think half the problem with that day was I worked the day shift and was kinda tired. I should have took the day off and got drunk as fuck. I've talked to tons of people that went and had a great time. The concert was awesome. The other BS pissed me off. Have a good time man, sweet seats!
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Shit machine gun on Jan 18, 2007, 06:41 PM
I think I'm going really early so if I try the digi and get rejected I'll still have time to go back to the car.  I did that for the Stones in Ottawa, except I took a bus halfway across town and back and still missed only the opening band.

few more, most of them are out of focus and the audio on my videos are horrible.  The picture quality is good.  For the encore they sang Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone.  Best concert I have ever been to.  Seats were unbelievable.  The ushers kept saying "wow" as we showed them our tickets on the way to the seats.  Even got a House of Blues wristband so they could tell who was supposed to be up close.  Here's a few more pics from the show.
first one is shot of the band
second is the lighters and phones during Fiddler's Green
third is close up of Gord and Paul
fourth is shot of the stage
last is one from someone else that was at the show.  There is a guy with his hands up clapping in the bottom right, I'm right behind him. I think you can see my bald head.

Again it is interesting to note that the venues close to the Canadian border are sold out.  The Hip play in much smaller venues in the US, so lots of Canadians will take the opportunity to see them play there.  It is better thans seeing them in Canada where they play in big hockey rinks. 
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Mall_cop on Mar 08, 2007, 04:17 PM
If I still lived in Sarnia, I'd go see them in Detroit. They used to play there a lot and always sold out. I'd imagine it would beat seeing them in a 20,000 seat hockey arena. Alas, I'm in Ottawa and missed them. Too bad, too, because their new CD is really, really good. World Container should be much more popular...

I'm in!  Took me a while but I couldn't get into these guys at first.  I guess the first thing I liked was The Darkest One video, for obvious reasons.  But when I heard Bobcaygeon during the credits at the end of the movie I was sold.  So I guess I'd like to know what albums I should get.  Can I trust allmusic's opinion?:
http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&searchlink=THE|TRAGICALLY|HIP&sql=11:97ivad5kv8w6~T2 
I'm thing of getting Fully Completely or In Between Revolution.
Holla at me if you have a strong opinion. 8)
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Shit machine gun on Mar 09, 2007, 08:24 PM
Get Fully Completely for probably their best, Up to Here and Road Apples are their classic sound that everything is compared to.

For a good cross section, Yer Favourites is a new best of that was compiled by internet vote and it has almost every one of their monster hits.
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Chantal on Mar 13, 2007, 08:45 PM
I recomend the band's new album, World Container! It is AMAZING. But In Between Evolution is also great. It's a different sound, though. A lot of people compare it to Fully Completely but I actually wouldn't. It's very raw and it's got a lot of energy, a lot like their live performances.

Then, once you've got The Hip's whole collection, you have to run out and pick up Stripper's Union, the band Rob Baker's in with... whatshisface from The Odds. THAT is a great band. I'm still kicking myself for never going to see them live.

I love the concept of the video! That bear is so adorable (looks like it may be Gus!) and so is Gord, of course. :P

FOR SURE DIETER!!
That DVD was fucking awesome!
I kept saying "That lucky bastard" :lol: then later on in the night I saw an ad in the Newspaper that the Hip was coming to Halifax and went "FUCKIN A! :D"
Thanks a million for that DVD Dieter. It was awesome to see them perform the new song "Fly" and the other one "The Drop-Off" those are two of my favorites in that album!
BTW, me and coleharbourjim are going to the Hip in Halifax together, should be an awesome time!

Shit, now that's cool!
Thanks for the link SMG.

It won't let me browse until I get an account though. I have to wait until some ones account expires.

There is a Live version of Wheat Kings on the one I am listening to now. Wheat Kings would probably have to be my favorite Hip song ever made. This is my first time hearing it performed live too so glad I finally found one! :)

I was looking around that site yesteray and I just couldn't get it. They use another format other than MP3 which I wouldn't have a problem using but it wouldn't play in any of my players! I even downloaded Winamp and it didn't work!
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Refuckulator on Apr 22, 2007, 05:32 PM
Is it .FLAC?
That's the one I recently got and it worked in Winamp. I had to do a google search to see what players it would work in. It said no to Windows Media Player and yes to Winamp but said Winamp lite wouldn't work. Do you have Winamp Lite?
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Djet3k on Apr 22, 2007, 05:55 PM
VLC player works as well for flac files , it probably is
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Shit machine gun on Apr 22, 2007, 06:17 PM
FLac's are just high quality files.  They record directly to those when the set up their recording equipment at the concerts I think.

I got a converter off a torrent and it works fine.  Just converts them to normal mp3's.  It's another step, but worth it since you can't buy those concerts.

they even have some full dvd's of shows onthere too.
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Refuckulator on Apr 22, 2007, 06:40 PM
Shit, I really have to get an account there soon!

What's the name of the converter you have? Its kind of a pain to have to play them in winamp all the time.

well here in belgium theres only two concert halls with seats and those are for the biggest comercial shows like eeuh tina turner and other old school folk like that, joe cocker .. anyhow so like most concerts here this will be standing up with a small balcony where you can stand too,not one place to sit.

After seeing them in Feb, I'm so dissappointed that I didn't see them every chance I had in the past few years.  They must have played 5 shows in either Kingston, Belleville or Ottawa that I easily could have attended.  But after being Row 2 floor, nothing will ever compare to that.

HAve fun CHJ at the show

Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Refuckulator on Sep 15, 2007, 11:15 AM
It was great!!!
They played every one of my favorite songs. I was surprised... they even played Wheat Kings.
They played quite a few of the new songs too which I really enjoy. Lonely End Of The Rink was the opening song.
Me and Jim were in the third row. The stage was about 30 or so feet to our slight left and then to our far left about 20 feet was the entire cast of TPB. I think John Dunsworth and Richard Collins were the only ones I didn't see. Everyone else was there though. Even Jonathan Torrens. When they started Music @ Work Lucy started dancing like crazy. She was having a great time. So was JP, he looked really stoked to be there.
I got kind of annoyed because the policy was no cameras but there were these assholes in front of us that had a digital camera and a fucking cam corder and security didn't say shit all to them. I got patted down at the door :? I would have really liked to have some video footage from there. We had a really great spot.
It was amazing show. If they come back again I'll be getting tickets again for sure.

Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Refuckulator on Sep 18, 2007, 09:42 PM
Ok, so supposedly I have been a Hip fan for 7 years... rather than the 1, which is what I thought.
The night after the concert my mom told me that around the time that she and my father were splitting up, one of her friends lent her a Tragically Hip CD. My mom has a really bad memory and couldn't remember the name of the CD. So around then it would have been year 2000. Supposedly I fell in love with the CD and would listen to it non-stop.
I thought that was really cool. I am pretty sure the CD would have been Fully Completely... that is my favorite album of theirs and when I started listening to them back in October I found almost every song on that CD sounded familiar and I had no idea why. I just figured that it was because I had heard them on the radio or something. But this explains it.
:D
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Shit machine gun on Sep 18, 2007, 09:46 PM
1 year?  My man, you ARE young.  cool story though.  Fully completely was my first hip tape I bought too.  That was just the beginning for me.
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Refuckulator on Sep 18, 2007, 09:57 PM
I know, saying I've been a Hip fan for one year is embarrassing. I think I'll start saying I have been one for 7 just to make me feel better about myself :P
I always used to listen to them every once in a while but over the last year I have been addicted to each and every album. One by one.
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: shake on Sep 18, 2007, 10:10 PM

I mentioned it before but Fully Completely is my fav CD of alltime.  Not just Hip CD but fav CD of alltime, period!  Up To Here is # 2.

Where's our pigeon camera?  By now it could be anywhere.  And after all that training and after all that trainninging it grew up into something we could no longer contain.

It was handsome at the auction, oh but when we brought it home.

Post by: Refuckulator on Sep 19, 2007, 10:34 PM
Whoops, sorry D. I screwed up my post.
I meant to say "Saying I have been a Hip fan for only one year is embarrassing."
That's what I meant. Being one for seven sounds a lot better to me :P

I actually only started becoming a Tragically Hip fan after seeing the video for the Darkest one a year ago. It is only now that I am starting to get into some of their other works. Besides by the time they broke, I would have been four or five and in our house, we don't like buying music, we mostly just listen to the radio and I have just been discovering some of the older bands right now. Also I have a picky taste for music, I must first hear a song many times before I am willing to go out an buy it.

Fuck this sucks!!!


That’s right fans; The Hip Tracker is dead.

Last week some arrogant jerkoff decided to hack our server and delete the Admin accounts, along with add their own graphics, and generally be a pest. This forced our hand and we implemented an upgraded version of the tracker software.

This turned out to be a good move, but sadly the loser hacker saw it as a new challenge and eventually gained access to the accounts and made changes, sent spam messages, deleted users, etc. which brings me to the point: The Hip Tracker as you knew and loved it is dead.

If you have any ideas on how to resurrect it, please let me know.

I got 2 extra tickets to the Kingston show that's sold out on February 23.  It's a Saturday night and the show looks like it's just them playing by themselves for a few hours in downtown Kingston.  I'm selling them for what it cost me.  Not trying to make any money on them.  If you are interested, send me a PM.  I'm driving in from Brockville with my brother and returning after the show.

Holy fucking hell, the Hip are playing a warm up show for the one in Kingston that I'm going to here in Brockville on the Thursday before the Saturday show.  Tickets aren't on sale to the General public only through their fansite.  They're going through unbelievable means to make sure there will be no scalped tickets.  $50/person + service charges.  Seating capacity is just over 750. 

My head is dizzy right now from this news.  I may even get to meet them if I stalk around long enough.  This is unreal.

The 2 setlists were pretty close but I guess they wanted to practice before they played their hometown.

I got to hear a bunch I hadn't heard live before:  38 YOld (they don't play that one live very much), Pigeon, Locked, 50MCap, On the verge, nautical disaster (one of my favourite songs).

I was looking at some of the other people's pics and one was from right behind me.  that's me in the blue shirt.  A lot of her pics had my big head reflecting her flash.

Bob Rock will be producing again, and they'll be spending a lot of their spring and summer in the studio. So, hopefully we'll see an album by the fall, and a tour throughout the winter!  :D

I have the audio, just not the DVD's.  I'm on Hipbase which is their .org.  I saw video guys taping all the shows.  It's just hoping that the video guys decide to release the show.

The kingston show had jumbo screens and they recorded everything the showed on the screens. The video link I posted above is part of the show.  It'd make a great dvd.

The Hip recording another Rock album
By JASON MacNeil - Sun Media
            


The Tragically Hip thought it went so nice they'd try it twice.

According to a video clip released yesterday on the band's website, the group is working on a new studio album with producer Bob Rock. Rock also produced 2006's World Container, the band's previous studio effort.

The band will continue working on the as-yet untitled album at Rock's home studio in Maui, following its appearance at the inaugural Pemberton Festival in B.C. on Saturday.

"I think after doing World Container we were pretty happy with the results, and it seemed like we just got to know each other as the album was ending," Rock says in the clip. "We kind of figured out what everybody did and stuff. Really it was done three or four songs at a time. We just knew that we had to kind of try to at least raise the bar a bit. We knew we had to come up with something different."

"It's going really well. Bob's been here three times since about April, we've worked out the songs and whittled them down," lead singer Gord Downie says. "We're at about 14 right now and I think that's what we'll continue with."

The band worked on the album at its Bathouse Studio near Kingston following touring in support of World Container last year. According to bassist Gord Sinclair, the group hopes to have the record completed by the end of August.

Hey the Ottawa Bluesfest is a world class festival, they get lots of big names, just not Petty yet.  The Hip headlined opening night this year.

Sometimes they have a few big names per night, often playing at the same time on different stages.  I think they should scale it down, yeah and 10 days is too long!

Hi Folks,

Greetings to all.  We have some very exciting news to deliver.

Our twelfth album, We Are The Same, will be released in North America on Tuesday, April 7th.   The album was produced by Bob Rock and recorded primarily at the Bathouse Studio.  It contains twelve new tracks that range from levity and light to melancholy and anger.   We think it has a little bit for everyone and showcases the great range of the band.
The full track listing is:

Morning Moon
Honey, Please
The Last Recluse
Coffee Girl
Now The Struggle Has A Name
The Depression Suite
The Exact Feeling
Queen of the Furrows
Speed River
Frozen In My Tracks
Love Is A First
Country Day

The opening track, “Morning Moon”, is now available to be streamed from our website, Facebook and MySpace page, as well as our iLike page.

Novelists Joseph and Amanda Boyden wrote the new album bio.   Please have a read, we think it captures the essence of We Are The Same better then we could ever imagine articulating it ourselves.

Stay tuned over the coming weeks, as we will continue to announce more great news, including album pre-order details, tour info and some more We Are The Same nuggets.

For those of you who have not spent time at the redesigned thehip.com, we hope you enjoy.  The is tons of new goodies, including full streaming of the entire discography, live shows, live pictures and our new online store, the Gift Shop.  The Gift Shop features new items such as lyric and classic album t-shirts and the first three volumes of the Live From The Vault concert archive series.

Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Shit machine gun on Mar 03, 2009, 10:51 AM
There's lots of moans going around but mostly due to the increased ticket prices for this tour.  Not very cheap.  If I couldn't get Row 1 or 2 I wasn't getting tickets.  I released 4 sets of floors before the row 2's came up.  I took them at that point.
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: shake on Mar 03, 2009, 10:55 AM
They are playing smaller venues, that is why the prices are up.  They usually play arenas, these seem to be concert halls.
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Shit machine gun on Mar 03, 2009, 11:44 AM
True.  Never really thought about that but they'll need to make up the revenue when they lose a bunch of tickets. 

They're playing three shows at the National Capitol centre in September, I may try and get tickets to one of those shows on Friday.

Some of the new albums songs are pretty good so far. 

When I got my tickets I took the buy advance album option and it also comes with a bonus disc of live material.  From Brussels concert..

I ordered mine through their website/ticket site when I got my second row seats for the Kingston show.  I overpaid, and I still don't have it yet.  I'm supposed to get a Live disc too, but I'm a little ticked off that it isn't here yet.

I downloaded it last night, to have it, but I don't really want to listen to it until I get the disc.
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Vancouver on Apr 14, 2009, 12:12 PM
I love their new album, but concider the source, I love all their albums. Gord still gives me goosebumps. Im absolutely mesmerized by his voice. I read this and thought it fair:

"First - my bias - I love the Hip. That said, I wouldn't rate every album a "5" (Music @ Work, Tragically Hip, In Between Evolution).

But this is a "5" no doubt. Just like the last reviewer, it grows on you, and it does so quickly. The critics who probably listened to it once and then rushed their review to press erred. Here's why: This isn't "familiar Hip" - my advice - listen to it once just to familiarize yourself with the music and then, once it's familiar, listen to it again.

This isn't a $7.99 bottle of table wine; this is a $79.99 complex cabernet. This isn't the CD I'd give to the uninitiated Hip listener. This is for fans, and those who WANT TO BE fans.

It's mellow, complex, and (as opposed to World Container which hits you like a freight train right out of the gate) it's more like a warm blanket on a cool Bobcaygeon night. Some of the songs are just stand-outs: Morning Moon, Coffee Girl (best single since Bobcaygeon some have suggested), Now The Struggle Has A Name (this CD's "World Container"), The Depression Suite - especially the Damien Rice-esque third movement, and the absolutely lovely Country Day (which impressed me the way I was impressed by "A Beautiful Thing", from In Violet Light, the first time I heard it).

Love Is A First isn't at all representative of this collection, but fits nicely with Queen of the Furrows and Speed River. In fact, if you took "World Container" off of World Container and placed it on We Are The Same, and took Love Is A First, and put that on World Container - well, you'd see the contrast more clearly.

Gord's lyrics become increasingly mature with each release. "Bring on the requisite strangeness" - as good as it gets. And to hear the horn introduce itself on Coffee Girl - perfect. The drumming is unbelievable - this is the first Hip album I can remember where I actually found myself just listening to the drum line.

Think of all the great Hip ballads and imagine building upon that - that's what We Are The Same is all about.

To dismiss this CD would be like saying "Rubber Soul" didn't sound like the Beatles after their first series of albums. The Hip continues to push the limits and evolve, and we are the lucky beneficiaries of their courage."
Title: Re: The Tragically Hip

I've never heard of this festival... must be new. No complaints from me though.
The Hip and The Offspring headlining :)
I need some one to go with. None of my friends like the Hip. If any of you Orgsters are going lemme know!

I'll be seeing them a week from tomorrow in Kingston with the Trews opening.  My wife's first hip concert.  2nd row again. 

I'd go to that in a second Refucker, but I'm camping that week with the family and Hali's a little far to drive.

Great show, really great crowd down front. We met a couple of women that had 2 seats beside us in F1 R2 and the husbands were in F2R2 (middle) so they asked if we would take the centre seats so their husbands could sit beside them. Decent trade.

I loved the new songs, thought the band was real tight on them. No complaints on the rest of the show. they threw in a couple rare ones that I hadn't heard before.

Tiger the Lion was great but it seemed like most of the crowd didn't know what do to. Missed microphones, Gord's handkerchiefs, drum sticks by mere feet. Gord also came down to the barrier after dropping his mic and let the whole front row take a turn at singing in the mic.

My only complaint was there were a bunch of "vip's" that had fancy passes on lanyards that had the entire 3rd and 4th rows that either didn't care to be there or were family/friends that have seen them dozens of times. The ones behind me only stood for half of the second set and were more concerned about getting beer to spill on people than listening to the tunes.

I got some good pics too I think. Even managed to get a pic of myself on the big screen while taking a picture of it.

Title: Re: The Tragically Hip
Post by: Chantal on Aug 11, 2009, 10:30 PM
I went to see The Hip for the third time on August 1st in North Bay! As usual, they put on a wicked concert, and they played so many of my favourite songs. I was surprised to hear The Depression Suit. It didn’t strike me as a song they would play at a festival because of its length and the fact that it hasn’t been released as a single, but it sounds amazing live!

I waited for three hours before the concert started, and it was totally worth it because I was in the very front, getting winks and smirks and handshakes from Gord. Lol, we were no more than six or seven feet apart a lot of the time, and I was stuck in the middle of a fairly unenthusiastic section of the crowd, dancing and singing at the very top of my lungs. It was a lot of fun, even if we got a shit load of rain.

So this year I got to go on stage during Ricky, Julian and Bubbles’ show, and I got to shake Gord Downie’s hand and say hello and flirt a little and what have you. I would say that this has been a good year. :)

I am hoping that will be ME! I have tickets to the 16 October show in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and my seats are ROW BB, seats 107 and 108!!!. So technically I will be in the second row but that won't keep me from trying to wangle my way one row up!  ;)
I was able to get great seats because of two important factors. One, most people in the US have no idea who the Hip even are (poor fools) and two, members of TheHip.com were able to get advanced seating before they went on sale to the public. That is the first time I have EVER been able to get seats that good to any concert EVER. I am freakin' beyond excited. Now if only the next time U2 comes to town (not that Pittsburgh is in my town... :roll: ) if I could get seats that good I could die happy.

I've been to see the Hip 4 times the last 4 years and been second row everytime but once.  The first row always goes against the barrier and the second row has lots of space in front.  Can't grab Gord but get pretty good views.

LOL! I'm thinking if I get a good amount of bounce off my seat, I may be able to spring up to the stage and grab me a handful of Gord.  ;)
This isn't a huge theatre so I am so excited! I know these seats are fantastic!

Gord just has a way with lyrics... he is brilliant.

Decent sound too.  My videos weren't that great since it was too loud right in front of the speakers.

Okay, so I went to the concert in Pennsylvania in the SNOW! We almost didn't go because damn it if the baby isn't sick again but my mother convinced me that it wasn't anything she couldn't handle.

Damn I am glad we went. To be honest, I wish the husband guy would have stayed home. That's only 'cause...get this...are you ready...?

I FUCKIN' GOT A KISS FROM GORDON DOWNIE!!!!!!!!!!!!  :jumping2: Oh HELL yes I did! (Okay, it was a kiss on the cheek, but in my hot, twisted mind, it was a helluva lot more then that!  :perv1: )

Ahem...but back to the concert.

It rocked. It rocked hard. It was incredible. I am very, VERY sleep deprived because we did not stay the night in Pennsylvania but drove home that night.

I am talking my iPod up to bed with me in a few minutes here to listen to The Hip as I drift off to sleep...I wish I had some pictures to share but I didn't get a single one.  :( I forgot it at home, sitting on the charger. Cocksucker!

Okay, so I went to the concert in Pennsylvania in the SNOW! We almost didn't go because damn it if the baby isn't sick again but my mother convinced me that it wasn't anything she couldn't handle.

Damn I am glad we went. To be honest, I wish the husband guy would have stayed home. That's only 'cause...get this...are you ready...?

I FUCKIN' GOT A KISS FROM GORDON DOWNIE!!!!!!!!!!!!  :jumping2: Oh HELL yes I did! (Okay, it was a kiss on the cheek, but in my hot, twisted mind, it was a helluva lot more then that!  :perv1: )

Ahem...but back to the concert.

It rocked. It rocked hard. It was incredible. I am very, VERY sleep deprived because we did not stay the night in Pennsylvania but drove home that night.

I am talking my iPod up to bed with me in a few minutes here to listen to The Hip as I drift off to sleep...I wish I had some pictures to share but I didn't get a single one.  :( I forgot it at home, sitting on the charger. Cocksucker!


Awesome! Never wash that cheek again (or whatever else he kissed)  ;)

Yeah, don't leave the camera on the charger like SOME of us did. I am still pissed at myself for that.

What sucks even more was that I drove all that way to see them in another state too. When they were right in my own back yard my little guy was so desperately sick that there was no way I could go in good conscience.

Fuckity Fuck...still ticked off.

just got really into the Hip, obviously through TPB at first but on my own accord of late - digging into the band's back catalogue.
I love Hip producer Adam Kesper's view of the band - "If The Rolling Stones and R.E.M.   were to have sex, the result would be a five headed baby called The   Tragically Hip"   
brilliant.

i like that definition. 

Gord Downie has a new solo album coming out next month, and doing a few tour dates this summer.

I used to say Pearl Jam and REM, but the Stones is an ever better compliment!

I always thought that REM was the American cousin to The Hip.  :D

I'm going to see Gord in Niagara Falls in July. It is going to be insane since it is a holiday weekend. I wasn't thinking it through too well when I decided to go!  :shock:

Here's 2/5 of The Hip!  Rob Baker is in another band called Stripper's Union with ex members of The Odds and Doug and the Slugs.  Here is a vid I took of them at the Bluesfest Sunday.  Paul Langlois made a guest appearance.

The Hip are coming through my neck of Worst Case Ontario. They will be in both Kitchener, and Guelph in February 2013. Heads up ORGsters who live around here.  The last time they were here was in 2009 so that's exciting! I skimmed through the topic so I might've missed the mention. But Trouble in the Hen House, Up to Here, and Fully Completely, and Road Apples are my four favourite albums. My least favourite is World Container.

The Hip were in Cleveland recently and it was an ass kicking good time! Everyone was super cool; most people were not even FROM Cleveland. (At least not the people I talked to.) They were from Buffalo, Indianapolis, Toronto...the show was at the House of Blues, so it was small but that made it so intense! I was front and centre and even though I had to stand the whole time, I doubt I would have sat down if I HAD a seat! I even got to speak with Gord ever so briefly while he was on stage. He really does LOCK EYES with people and I am sure this is the closest I will eve have to a "religious experience". I even didn't mind standing in a puddle of beer after I couldn't stand one more second in my boots. Yup, I took those fuckers right off and stood there.

Incredible time. I can't even describe it. I had posted some great pictures on my Facebook page. It was simply out of this world.

Fully Completely was THE best album of all-time and it is being reissued! I will be getting the Super Deluxe package. The unreleased songs they wrote back then are much better than the stuff they have been putting on their last 4 or 5 CDs. I see it even includes the documentary Heksenketal. I had that on VHS but I broke it accidentally. Whenever I am in used CD stores that still sell VHS I always look for it, knowing there is little chance of finding it. I can get it now on DVD! It includes a meeting they had with David Milgaard who was the subject of the song Wheat Kings. It was recently voted the third best Canadian song of all time by the CBC.
