hip

hello from chicago, my homeland! everything looks pretty much the same, only i am different. its kinda weird what happens when you come back to your hometown after an extended absence. it feels the same, almost like ive never left, but i question if i even belong here anymore? i would move back, but i almost feel like im meant to be elsewhere. anyway, ive probably had too many beers to be getting too personal on the subject.

what i got here is some circa 87 tragically hip demos. a tape showed up on ebay a while back which im sure sold for an ungodly amount, but this is that tape. they’re a bit rough in some spots, mostly due to tape hiss, but if youre a hip fan its cool to hear these songs in some very early stages.

1. she didnt know
2. when the wait comes down
3. new orleans is sinking
4. shes got what it takes
5. ill believe in you
6. rain, hearts, fires
7. the hailstone hands
8. nuclear bar-bq
9. just another midnight
10. three pistols
11. leather man
12. it came round
13. im ok
14. times are passing us by
15. juliet
16. running for my life
17. on the shelf (25)
