By now most good musicos are aware that Godspeed You! Black Emperor won the 2013 Polaris Music Prize.
We also know how that turned out.
What folks don’t know is that because of a combination of indifference, content hoarding and a dismal sense of history on the part of previous Polaris Gala broadcasters, this is the first time you can actually go back and watch the full awards show broadcast without worrying about it disappearing from the internet.
So please go back and watch the telecast via Aux TV if you haven’t. I was responsible for writing a solid seven per cent of the dialogue that came out of co-hosts Kathleen Edwards and Shad’s mouths.
