I was wondering how many people on this site actually know about them. They're so amazing, I can't believe they're not more famous outside of Canada. If you've never heard of them, download the entire Up To Here Album, personally one of my favorites. Share any stories, thoughts, fave songs etc.

I think Gord's vocals are immediately recognizable and I like that. Fun fact, they're my older brother's favourite band.

Also, I bet somebody will say this should go somewhere else, just saying.

edit: well, there you go

Back in the 70's I decided to take all the frets off Jaco's Bass thinking he would play worse. Man did that backfire.

the hip are crazy sick!

i took a four hour car ride with my friends dad (yah, just him and me...) from oakville to kingston to visit my friend.. and the only thing that made it not awkword was that a hip song came on the radio and he started talking about the first song he heard and stuff lol

I saw them at Bluesfest in Ottawa this past summer...and they put on a damn good show. I was basically front row as well - I have a talent for getting up close in general admission. We were close enough that a buddy of mine caught one of Gord Downie's sweat rags, though we had no idea what to do with it after we caught it.

Basically though, their live shows are great. Full of energy (Gord especially is awesome up there), and have good music. I'm a fan for sure!

And they live like 2 hours from me...so that's pretty sweet.
Oh no he just divided by zero again...*gets sucked into vortex*

Yeah, sorry, I didn't mean ALL canadians like them, but if you do like them, you probably are. And to the guy who said to move it, i looked in the band forums and stuff, but who the hell really goes there?

I am a real wizard, I'm UG's official wizard... Except I have some self doubting issues.
