To the asshole [Peter Margasak] who wrote the "preview" of hHead and the Hip [Spot Check, March 31].

Who the hell do you think you are? How do you write a review of a concert you haven't even seen yet? How could you relate the Hip to Moxy Fruvous and the Barenaked Ladies? (There is NO relationship between those two types of music!)

I heard your review on 102.1 CNFY in Toronto. They said that even some Americans called in and said you were wrong. They obviously appreciate good music.

I have to wonder if you listened to the right album while writing your comments. Day for Night is an incredible album. Just like the Hip's past albums--Road Apples, Fully Completely, Up to Here, the list goes on.

The review was an insult to all of Canada. We all love the Tragically Hip's music. I hope you receive shitloads of mail telling you how much of an ignorant comment that was.
