Secrets of the Alibi is the second album by The Northern Pikes released in 1988. It featured two hit Canadian singles - "Wait for Me" and "Hopes Go Astray". Although this was their second album, the Pikes were nominated for "Most Promising Group" at the 1989 Juno Awards. This was likely because no Juno Awards were presented in 1988, the year their debut album would have been up for nomination

Big Blue Sky (The Northern Pikes album). Big Blue Sky is the first major label album by The Northern Pikes released in 1987.

The songs "Love Will Break You" and "Heartaches Heartbreaks (Open Up)" were added to the album when it was released on CD in 1990. Heartaches Heartbreaks (Open Up)" was the b-side to the "Teenland" single in 1987.

Secrets of the Alibi is the second album by The Northern Pikes released in 1988. This was likely because no Juno Awards were presented in 1988, the year their debut album would have been up for nomination. About one year after recording their successful debut album, the Northern Pikes returned to the studio in the Spring of 1988 to record the follow-up. The resulting production had a more serious tone than their first, no longer talking about "Teenland" but themes of growing up and a political awareness of the world at large. The first track on the album is "Place That's Insane", apparently about a pretty waitress who works in a smokey bar, as the lyrics describe "The girl that works in the club downtown, Knows all about life, man, she's been around"

Pikes 2018 The Northern Pikes have been a band for 34 years, but you're going to have to forgive them if they're acting like a new group. There's a lot of excitement about their first full, cross-Canada tour in over a decade, and the release of a brand-new collection. Secrets Of The Alibi arrived in 1988, featuring Wait For Me and Hopes Go Astray. 1990 saw the platinum album Snow In June, which landed them three giant hits on the Canadian singles chart: She Ain't Pretty, Girl With A Problem & Kiss Me You Fool. Neptune came out in late '92, and featured the singles Twister and Believe.
