GO SEE THEM LIVE. Saw them in 91 in Rhode Island at a small club in Providence (which would be right out of a Soprano's set nowadays) with maybe 100 people total, with about five of us paying attention. I was right in front of Gordie for over an hour and a half and at the end we just naturally hit a hard high fived grasp. I have NEVER been the SAME.
They just blew me away and trust me youngster I have seen plenty of the greats and am kind of old, jaded, and cranky.
Saw them on the Day for Night Tour in Massachusetts and had a bigger crowd but still probably under 1,000 folks in a college barroom basically. Fantastic Show.
Saw the 98 tour in Kamloops BC. I flew from Alaska to Seattle, rented a car and drove just to see them live as that was the closest they would be to Alaska on that tour. That was a great show but also a huge crowd and big stadium type event. Canada sure knows a great hometown band!!!
Catch them live as they are sorely underappreciated in the US and put on a great show.
I have the vinyl of Day for Night and if you spin vinyl, it is a great album.
Yes, new one soon, and I will be begging them to tour AK (doubtful as they get no airplay, radio is hopeless!!!)
but maybe they will make it to Whitehorse and I will take a road trip!!!!!!!
