The Northern Pikes began their career in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in early 1984. Over the next two years, the band recorded and released the independent EPs 'The Northern Pikes' and 'Scene In North America' with producer and pal Mitch Barnett. Both were recorded and mixed at Studio West in Saskatoon. Sharing a taste for jangly, tuneful songs mixing alternative rock with power pop and indie music, the original lineup was spawned from the ashes of three local groups, 'The Idols', 'Doris Daye', and '17 Envelope', and consisted of Jay Semko, Merl Bryck, Bryan Potvin and Glen Hollingshead, who left the band in 1985.

    I had two jobs, I had dishwater hands
    And on the weekend in a rock and roll band
    One Friday night, in my hometown bar
    In walked a girl who looked like a movie star
    She stared at me and it was turning me on

    I know what I want to say to you, my love
    But when I try to speak the words slip away
    Without you by my side, I don't want to face the world
    It's much too cold for me without your warm embrace
    This bottle in front of me, it slowly disappears
