Today's Back Pages first take us to Attic Records circa 1983 with members of Teenage Head flanked left to right by Attic principals' Al Mair and Tom Williams. Unsurprisingly, front and centre is the band's manager of the time, the late Jack Morrow. The occasion is a platinum presentation to the boys for successfully selling 100,000 LPs of Frantic City in the market. The classic album included such notables as Somethin' On My Mind, Let's Shake, Infected, and Disgusteen.


The second pic today was taken in 1991, featuring CHUM GM Jim Waters with CARAS President Peter Steinmetz on the occasion of the broadcaster donating $10K as the first of a five-year patronship of the CARAS Academic Support Fund.

Tanya Tagaq Plays a Pivotal Role in 'True Detective' Season Finale

The Inuk artist provides vocals for the HBO series' soundtrack, and her song "Submerged" scores a pivotal moment in the season finale, in which she appears as an actress.

The new season of True Detective wrapped up this weekend, and timed with the tense final episode, HBO also released the show's gripping soundtrack. Inuk artist Tanya Tagaq, one of the most celebrated contemporary musicians in Canada, contributed to seven songs on the soundtrack as well as making appearances in the show herself.

Subtitled Night Country, the fourth season of the HBO detective show takes place in the fictional town of Ennis, Alaska. It stars Jodie Foster and Kali Reis as Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro, two police officers trying to figure out how the recent bizarre deaths of six scientists are linked to the murder of Iñupiaq activist Annie Kowtok. Through its mystery framing, the show explores themes like colonial violence, environmental destruction, and missing and murdered Indigenous women.
