The Never-Ending Present

The biography of Canadas bandIn the summer of 2016, more than a third of Canadians tuned in to watch what was likely the Tragically Hips final performance, broadcast from their hometown of Kingston, Ontario. Why? Because these five men were always more than just a band. They sold millions of records and defined a generation of Canadian rock music. But they were also a tabula rasa onto which fans could project their own ideas: of performance, of poetry, of history, of Canada itself.In the first print biography of the Tragically Hip, Michael Barclay talks to dozens of the bands peers and friends about not just the Hips music but about the opening bands, the American albatross, the bands role in Canadian culture, and Gord Downies role in reconciliation with Indigenous people. When Downie announced he had terminal cancer and decided to take the Hip on the road one more time, the tour became another Terry Fox moment; this time, Canadians got to witness an embattled hero reach the finish line.This is a book not just for fans of the band: its for anyone interested in how culture can spark national conversations....

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the advanced copy of this book - all opinions are my own.

    Michael Barclay completely blew me away with this book. It would be a disservice to pigeonhole this as a biography about the Tragically Hip - yes the focus of the book is the Hip, however it is not just a biography of the 5 guys in the band, rather, of the footprint they made in music history, and that includes an in depth look at every person and event that shaped the band into the 30 year succ

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book. As someone who has had an on-again off-again relationship with the band, it was fascinating to read about some of the background behind the band forming, and the recording of their albums.
