  1. Mr. Palmer Says:

    @ Lycan- definitely! I love this Lala.com. can listen to an album w/o having to purchase it. I dl’d the Fela myself. lots of new music to sift thru…fun fun fun

  2. Lycanthropist Says:

    yeah if Moon and Antarctica didnt grab you right away I can understand.. its a little spacey.

    Long Drive and Lonesome Crowded will rock you from start to finish.

    I just love their simple rock and roll with so much raw sensibility

  3. garretc Says:

    But it’s strange that it didn’t grab me, as I’m normally all about spacey… I don’t know if I really went into it with an open mind, having heard both Good News and We Were Dead beforehand, so I had an expectation of what Modest Mouse would sound like… But I’ll give it another whirl soon, cause something like that should be right up my alley

  4. Lycanthropist Says:

    let me restate.

    I love early Modest Mouse..

    not AS much as Phish, Radiohead, etc..

    but they are top shelf music to me is all im saying

  5. Lycanthropist Says:

    will my wife is a diehard MM fan and she sometimes says that Moon is too spacey for her.

    I for one love it.. its a very fluid album.

  6. KWL Says:

    thanks @halcyon! seems exactly what I’m looking for…

  7. KWL Says:

    guess i gotta check out some modest mouse now huh…

  8. Lycanthropist Says:

    well i do seem to be unintentionally making a case for em.

    I will say this, if you aren’t into gritty indie-style rock it may not be for you.

    But just remember that these guys were around long before the term “Indie Rock” even existed.

    Listening to new years, and I’m officially renaming pyite>moma to “I’m gonna punch you in the black eyed Katy dance” ha!

  11. pagesidehighschool Says:

    You can add sucka! to the end of that if you like

  12. Lycanthropist Says:


    did you get that link that Palmer posted?

  13. ChefBradford Says:

    MM = mmm good

  14. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Time for “24” . later peeps

  15. gus Says:

    ok question:

    do a lot of bands who play new years shows play auld lang syne at midnight, or is phish one of the few that do? i’ve always wondered this.

  16. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    best auld lang syne ever was hendrix, NYE ’69

  17. garretc Says:

    Well gus, after a thoroughly scientific review of the 3 non-phish new years shows I have on my itunes, no, other bands do not apparently play auld lang syne at midnight… But of course that’s just three shows, so who’s to say?

    @Lycan, So I’m giving Moon and Antarctica another shot, and I’m not sure why I’ve been sleeping on it so long… I’m definitely digging it. Parts of Gravity Rides Everything actually reminded me a lot of the band Helio Sequence, whose album “Keep Your Eyes Ahead” I strongly recommend…

  20. Mr. Completely Says:

    also: Mike is nuts at the end of the Miami Light

    doesn’t get much mention but very cool

    rocked a nice chunk of Miami highlights last night for some semi converted deadhead friends, a good time was had by all

  21. Mr. Completely Says:

    they’re at the “this music is fun but I don’t really have a connection to it yet” stage

    totally primed for shows this summer – it’s a lock – two at the Gorge and they’ll be done

  22. Dr. Pronoia (ie, BK) Says:

    It’s been crickets today, so this may fall on deaf ears, but I’ve been in a Dead mood lately. Can someone please recommend, their favorite book on the dead, and also, their favorite early to mid-80s show?

  23. Marshall Says:

    Mike also wanted to throw some more liquid funkification on reggae woman right as Trey starts into the beginnings of Antelope. I remember at the time thinking, whoa Trey, let’s keep rocking that groove mike just started laying down. Course, when I discovered what lay around antelope corner (boogielope), I forgot all about that groove before the transition. But I do think there was a little stepping on toes there by Trey.

  24. BrandonKayda Says:

    Just watched the Exile set again

    Absolutely incredible.

    Rocks Off->Loving Cup is just great blues rock (with some country thrown in). Great Casino Boogie and Torn and Frayed along side the monster Loving Cup to end the first half of the album

    But after a high energy Happy and Turd On The Run, the real magic begins

    Ventilator Blues->I Just Wanna See His Face->Let It Loose

    I seriously got chills during this segment. You could feel the energy that was there. So much soul in Indio that night. Church was in session for sure. Gospel soul music right here

    “Stand up and be counted. Can I get a witness?”

    All Down The Line was just ridiculous, the horns blew me away. Mike had great vocals too. Once again, the energy was through the roof. Same goes for Stop Breaking Down. Great solos by all 3 horn players

    Shine A Light was once again just pure gospel. Trey had especially powerful vocals on that one

    Soul Survivor was a great close to the album, they really took it as far as they could to close.

    Overall, the Exile set was a gigantic success, quite possibly the best Halloween cover of their career. They are carrying on the soul in this record in their playing.

    @Mr. C – dead heads + gorge + phish = conversion complete
