The Northern Pikes - Home County Music & Arts Festival - July 16th
Saskatoon Saskatchewan’ s Northern Pikes had already released two indie eps before signing with Virgin Records and releasing their debut album, Big Blue Sky, in 1987, that contained their first single, the post punk track, Teenland. They opted for a more rootsy sound on its follow-up, 1988’s Secrets of the Alibi, which included singles Let’s Pretend, Wait for Me and Hopes Go Astray and set the stage for their biggest album, Snow in June and a top ten single, She Ain’t Pretty, with a heavily rotated video that earned them one of their five Juno nominations. The band called it quits after the release of their fourth album Neptune in 1993, but were coaxed back into performing for the release of their greatest hits album in 1999. They have continued to record independently, preferring a more casual schedule and avoiding the pressure of answering to a big record label.
