[Powderworks] 10 years already! Clayoquot Sound Protest

"The hip sucked on that tour..."
Now, I'm not a slavish fan, they've gone way down Trouble at the Henhouse,
but pray tell, how do you figure the Hip sucked on the first ARA tour? Cuz
even today they are a force to be reckoned with live, and certainly with
Fully Completely they were right at the peak of their recorded glory and had
a ton of live energy.
Were you never a fan to begin with? I just have to know...

>hey james...if you want to get technical, the 10 year anniversary was a few

>kicked off which is why it made it a bit more special that the Oils
>interrupted their family vacation and did that show. I think it occurred
>near the end of their 3 week vacation. That was a cool tour, and the

>>So I got to hear some live Oils on the CBC radio this morning. It turns
>>out that this weekend is the ten year anniversary of the protests at
>>Clayoquot Sound in British Columbia, Canada. So the CBC was broadcasting
>>a story about the event, the reunion this weekend and the continuing
>>logging (by Interfor) there.
>>Anywho, it was pretty cool to hear a live clip of "Beds" (the Oils were
>>touring Canada at the time and decided to stop by and support the
>>protestors; the "Land" single was recorded around the same time... in
>>Calgary, if I remember correctly). The sound quality wasn't great, but
>>I'm not complaining!
