Wheat Kings.. Tragically Hip Tribute Band.. "50 Mission Cap"
Skiffs.. Alexandria Bay, NY.. Sept 26th 2010..

I had some audio recording issues so this in no way does them justice.. you're actually listening to sound from my backup audio device as the audio from my camera was too distorted.. and even that audio had to be cleaned up to sound ok..  (really they sounded 10 times better than this recording)..  anyway.. check it out..



Lyrics..


"bill barilko disappeared that summer, he was on a fishing trip the last goal he ever scored won the leafs the cup they didn't win another until 1962, the year he was discovered i stole this from a hockey card, i keep tucked up under my fifty mission cap, i worked it in i worked it in to look like that it's my fifty mission cap and i worked it in, i worked it in, and i worked it in, to look like that and i worked it in, to look like that

bill barilko disappeared that summer, he was on a fishing trip the last goal he ever scored won the leafs the cup they didn't win another until 1962, the year he was discovered my fifty mission cap, i worked it in i worked it in to look like that it's my fifty
mission cap and i worked it in, i worked it in, and i worked it in, to look like that and i worked it in, to look like that it's my fifty mission cap it's my fifty mission cap it's my fifty mission cap it's my fifty mission cap"

This is one of my favorite Hip songs because it has such an interesting story behind it..

Also, In case anyone is wondering this event was a success.. "Critter" from Skiffs says he plans to have a few more high profile bands like this in the future..
