That time Gord Downie told me that talking about the Tragically Hip’s new Fully Completely album made him sound like a commercial pitchman


By Steve Newton

Back in November of 1992 I did my second interview with Gord Downie, when he called me up to promote the Tragically Hip’s new album, Fully Completely, which I firmly believe is their best ever.

I started off by observing that it was their most varied album yet, and Downie took it from there. He seemed kinda amused that Fully Completely was battling it out on the local sales charts with R.E.M.’s Automatic for the People and Madonna’s Erotica.
