The Tragically Hip
The Tragically Hip
A surprising call from BIt started making sense the night of the Bobcaygeon
show last summer.

The Tragically Hip and I had already recorded 4-songs
that spring at their studio in Kingston, a bit piecemeal,
a little slow off the start and I was still looking for the
magic, that something extra to make the new record

But that night as they hit the stage and hit their stride
it became clear to me....they are a killer live band...

I'm overstating the obvious but I guess spending so
much time tucked away in the studio trying to perfect
the "unperfectable" (not a word) I think I lost sight of what the essence of this band is...The energy of
connectivity...the five of them together...each providing his pulse to the flow...each playing off the other as no other
band can.

The Tragically Hip have made great records their whole career and they've made many memories on nights like
this....the moon shining, the crowd screaming, the songs one after the other, familiar yet reborn in the moment...

I hadn't seen the Hip since their run at Massey Hall in Toronto a few years ago and maybe I had forgotten this while
we were tracking each of them separately at the Bathouse that spring...

But now my job was this energy...let them play together...a living organism honed by the years.

We changed tack and retooled and found a studio able to house the five guys with their inimitable style and blasted
through 14-songs in two weeks....there was the magic, there was the essence, every moment charged with the energy
of connectivity no chance to over-think or worse....with a few finishing touches back at the Bathouse and a mix week
in NYC the record was done....

Now For Plan A is the new Tragically Hip record due out October 2 2012.


The Tragically Hip were formed in 1984 by five friends from Kingston ON – Rob Baker, Gord Downie, Johnny Fay,
Paul Langlois and Gord Sinclair.

The Hip have sold millions of records worldwide, managing to enjoy both mass popularity and critical acclaim.

The group released their first album, The Tragically Hip, in 1987 and have since released thirteen studio albums,
earning two diamond certifications and over twenty #1 hits.

Known for their powerful, energetic live performances, The Hip have established a demanding concert itinerary,
touring extensively in Canada, the U.S., Europe and Australia.
