All aboard the '90s nostalgia train — next stop, I Mother Earth.
The Canadian alt-rock band is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its most successful album, Scenery & Fish, with a tour that will reunite vocalist Edwin, who has not performed with the group since 1997, with the other two original members, Jagori Tanna on guitar and Christian Tanna on drums. They will stop in Winnipeg at the Burton Cummings Theatre, Oct. 6.
I Mother Earth, or IME as the cool kids used to say, hit peak popularity in the mid-'90s, thanks to the massive success of Scenery & Fish — it went triple-platinum and spawned four top-five singles. Shortly after the tour for that album was completed, Edwin left the band citing "unmanageable tension." IME continued with a revamped lineup, but ended up taking a hiatus for eight years until 2012, when they reunited to play shows sporadically for the next few years. The band announced Edwin's return earlier this year.
