"There's this fuckin' band you've gotta see, they used to scare the livin' shit outta me'" - An Inch An Hour

In March1988, The Tragically Hip was a band you had to see. The Kingston quintet's reputation had preceded it to Winnipeg, first stop on its inaugural cross-Canada tour. Having spent the previous two years barnstorming the pubs, clubs and beer halls of Ontario, the group had released an eight-song, eponymous mini-album. Smalltown Bringdown and Last American Exit were being played at local radio and a television feature on The New Music had prepped Prairie audiences for a young band that played no-frills rock 'n' roll. Rob Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gord Sinclair looked lean and mean, like a gang - they were a T-shirts and jeans act in an age of teased hair and spandex. Their sound was an improbable roar that left mouths agape.
