LiveDaily Interview: Johnny Fay of The Tragically Hip
Fay talked to LiveDaily about "World Container," the song "New Orleans is Sinking" and the importance of notoriety.
Johnny Fay: We had people in Canada and they said, "We're not gonna play that song." But if you did the history on that city, they've always been expecting a big one.
Untitled Document (1117 words)
Johnny has recruited three men for the job: George Peatty, a track cashier despised by his wife Sherry (who is two-timing him with hood Val Cannon); Randy Kennan, a police patrolman with debts; and Mike O'Reilly, a track bartender with a sick wife.
Johnny leaves a gun in a bus station luggage locker, from where it is picked up by Mike and taken to the track.
The end result is that Johnny is displaced from the centre of his own scheming, not so much by an overriding sense of fate as by a wayward, darkly playful sense of narrative shaping and possibility.
