Gord Downie, The Sadies, And The Conquering Sun is the debut self-titled record. This is an emphatic arrival: the mission statement of a young band unhinged. Ten songs of visceral punk rock exultation; a spirited half-hour exploration of the darkness surrounding daylight. Each song brims with energy, electricity embellishing a simple, rustic core - now all brash guitars and punk rock gnarl. Gord Downie, The Sadies, And The Conquering Sun is the combustion of brotherhood and dissent: music of wisdom and innocence: poetry of promise and provocation.
