I met them... I wanna say around 2000/Music @ Work tour I think...though it could have been Phantom Power and a year or two earlier.

Went to go see them at the Moore Theatre in Seattle (great little venue FWIW). We met them outside after on the way back to their bus. They were all more than cordial but Gord lingered the longest and was the friendliest. I was surprised at how he seemed so reserved, almost shy. Quite the polar opposite to his onstage persona! Super friendly though and chatted and answered questions, seemed quite down to earth.

Any songs of theirs that are at least 18 years old I guess... there is something about these bands that produce like... a dozen albums... after they have lost the magic that rubs me the wrong way.

It's hard to take seriously anyone who's named after a movie that only 13 year olds found funny. Then again I guess humor is subjective, just like music.

Opiated, When the Weight Comes Down

The Luxury, Fiddler's Green

Pigeon Camera, Eldorado

Yawning or Snarling, Titanic Terrarium (Day For Night fav hip album)

Springtime in Vienna

Thompson Girl, Escape is at hand, Emperor Penguin (their last great album imo, still released more great stuff but not as full albums)

I have their Live Between Us album and I love it.

Though some of my favourite Hip tracks are:

Bobcaygeon (sp)

New Orleans is Sinking

Locked in a Trunk of a Car

Nautical disaster

Edit: Snap. Reading the thread, I forgot to mention Wheat Kings. By far, my favourite Hip song

Not my favorite song, but the mid-song story is great. At about the 2:00 mark.

Gotta say this though... I love The Hip, but they're no Rush.

Surprised there's been no mention of the "Killer Whale Rant" version of New Orleans...

Speaking of...anybody else interpret these lyrics from New Orleans:

I had my hands in the river, my feet back up on the banks

Looked up to the lord above and said, Hey, man, thanks

Sometimes I feel so good I got to scream

She said, Gordie, baby, I know exactly what you mean

She said, she said, I swear to god she said

The rant during "Highway Girl" called Double Suicide is also really really good.
