Season Two of the Completely Ignored Podcast wraps with a chat about iconic Canadian classic rock heroes the Tragically Hip and their 1989 debut full-length Up to Here. Where to even start with this band? Well, we try to compare them to R.E.M., the Black Crowes, Pearl Jam and the Dave Matthews Band. It kinda works. It kinda doesn’t. We also ponder what it meant when Gord Downie started strumming an accoustic guitar in 1996 and whether those two “other guys” in the Jeff Healey Band were twins. We also discuss how music and media worlds collided in a sad but fairly touching way during the Tragically Hip’s victory lap in the summer of 2016. The episode wraps with a quick chat about Gorillaz, the varied brilliance of Damon Albarn and finally, Canadian cartoon rockers Prozzäk.

The fellas go back to late, late 20th century Toronto for this episode as they talk up the Bourbon Tabernacle Choir and their stellar 1992 full-length Superior Cackling Hen. Why didn’t this band become more of “a thing” beyond the GTA? We don’t know and we never will!!! They were talented and fun AF yet this amazing album got stuck in the murky middle between major labels and independence. Good times! The episode also labels Bran Van 3000 as a “connective tissue” outfit, talks quite a bit about both Change of Heart and Little Feat plus features a random discussion about Dusty Springfield. Enjoy!
