The Tragically Hip was formed in 1983. The band is often referred to simply as The Hip. The name of the band was taken from a skit in the movie Elephant Parts by Michael Nesmith of The Monkees.
1987 proved to be a lucky year for the band when MCA former company president Bruce Dickinson saw them perform live at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, Ontario. He was impressed with their performance. Eventually, the band was successful in signing a long-term record deal with MCA.
Later that year, the band released the eponymous EP The Tragically Hip.It proved to be a huge success and established them as one of the best and most influential bands in Canada.
The Another Roadside Attraction festival was created by them in 1992. The festival tours Canada to promote Canadian bands.
The band are also known for their often improvisational renditions of songs in addition to their energetic live performances. Lead singer Gordon Downie often strays from the lyrical path to rant to the audience or wander off into fictitious monologues and conversations. Some of these become lyrics for future songs. The "killerwhaletank" version of "New Orleans is Sinking" is the most famous live monologue. It was recorded at The Roxy Theatre, LA. May 3, 1991. This version was released on CD in 1996 as the B-side to "Grace, Too". The "Police Frogman" version of "New Orleans is Sinking" and the "Greek Porter" version of "Highway Girl" are other notable monologues.
