    Glad you had a fun time Miner!!!

  2. halcyon Says:

    Great weekend to come out to Colorado Miner. Summer has finally arrived in the Rockies…

    Sun is shining strong, the river is running strong….and the wind is finally dying down. 🙂

  3. ChefBradford Says:


    Zappa Plays Zappa just jumped in on moe.’s set there, may be done now, idunno

  4. ChefBradford Says:

    Fuck. This is literally the ONLY ‘net message board/blog/chat/whatev that is overwhelmingly (in the best way) and democratically positive. Every other place I even peek my head in is terrible

    So, thank you Mr Miner, for little to no bullshit


  5. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    i started watching that moe show. i guess zappas offstage. but they just busted into cissy strut so hey, w/e, sounds good to me.

    i used ot like moe a lot. i saw them twice, and by hten i realized a lot of their jams really just sound the same. also, phish got back together a month after my last moe. show, which explains a lot.

  6. Selector J Says:


    Nice! Such a classic. I always felt like Fathead got the shaft on that title. He’s on all the Yellowman songs but gets no mention? Poor Fatty.
    I love that real early dancehall vibe with Junjo on production. Volcano Sound used to run tings. Yellowman used to be such a badass, too. He could be cheesy but he could also just flatout rule it when he wanted to.

    I don’t that think I’ve ever linked to this video before but it’s killer. 30 min of old school JA dancehall that starts out in a session at Channel 1 studio and then shows some awesome live sound system footage from Volcano Sound ca. 1984.

    Deejays include Josey Wales, Ranking Toyan, Lui Lepke, Lee Van Cliff, King(!) Yellowman, and Selector Danny Dread. You can see the A1 producer and operator of Volcano Sound, Junjo Lawes, chilling next to Yellowman and Lui Lepke in a couple of shots, too. And then there’s the old school dancehall grinding in slow motion. Classic.

    Check the riddim at 12:50. Carlton Livingston’s ‘100 Weight of Collie Weed’… crowd goes bonkers. “Bup! Bup! Bup! Murder!”

  7. ChefBradford Says:

    Yeah Zappa did two songs, then it was set break. The stream was fine all afternoon, but this set has been off and on in the worst way

    I like moe, and have seen them live, but there doesn’t seem to much variety of style

    good band though

  8. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    yea i kinda feel the same way… and im not a huge fan of the obviously planned setlists and transitions.

    even this set theyre starting to lose me again. can’t really get into the jams anymore

  9. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    oh but here comes a rec chem. not sure if theyre coming back into this jam from earlier in the show or if they just are starting off by jamming it out

  10. Jtran Says:

    Night crew in full force?

  11. ChefBradford Says:


  12. BrandonKayda Says:

    Watching this Moe. stream right now

  13. Jtran Says:

    Seems so. Any good jam recommendations for the night Chef? If you’ve got anything you really like that’s more mellow, laid back I’m all ears.

  14. ChefBradford Says:

    anybody of the Phish persuasion asks me for a mellow thing, I’m probably going to point out the Lemonwheel “4th Set”.

  15. ChefBradford Says:

    OR, there are some of Mr Miner’s excellent DJ mixes. The Tweezer and Late 90s mixes are both choice

  16. ChefBradford Says:

    I mean this in a good way, but this may be the most abstract, truly improv’d thing I’ve heard moe play

  17. BrandonKayda Says:

    This is a long jam (Moe.)

    Has this all been one song?

  18. halcyon Says:



  19. ChefBradford Says:

    BK, I don’t know because my stream was off and on

  20. ChefBradford Says:

    looks like they’re heading into something.

  21. BrandonKayda Says:

    I think this song has been going for 26mins now, if not more. It started awhile ago
