More Type II Trivia

11.20.09 (W.Rogell)

Last week’s contest seemed to be fun for the whole family, so let’s get in one more round before tour starts next week! The rules, re-posted from last week, are as follows:

Phish’s jamming has often been described in layman’s terms as ‘type I’ (contained jamming that adheres to song structures and chord progressions) and ‘type II’ (open jamming that leaves any semblance of the song it came from). Today’s game centers on Phish’s open jamming. Below are ten audio clips – each a few minutes long, and here is the task. You can gain 3 points per audio clip – 1 for identifying the year, 1 for identifying the song, and 1 for identifying the date – for a total of 30 possible points. The winner will win their choice of a “TAB and the Tabernacle” CD or Mike Gordon’s “Moss,” to be delivered in the near future. Please email your entries with ten numbered lines, one for each guess. All entries must be emailed to by 7 pm pacific on Friday (tomorrow) night. If multiple entries nail a perfect score, the earlier entry will take the prize. Without further ado, here are the audio clips. Good Luck!

    Oh mind expanding LSD
    You make my dick crawl up inside of me

  3. willowed Says:

    Yup Bingos
    I tried to pee at Albany 2000 and I couldn’t find it
    Peed anyway and it ended up shooting out of my eyes.

    Weirdest thing ever.

  4. willowed Says:

    Oh and KWL…don’t worry. I like to snuggle after so i wan’t make you feel like trash. 😉

  5. willowed Says:

    OK boys.
    I need to run. Fun chat today. See you in the a.m.

  6. Jtran Says:

    Hey guys, we might get a TTFF tomorrow


  7. phoammhead Says:

    Hell yeah, Jtran!

  8. KWL Says:

    so i shouldn’t name my kid ezekial?

  9. kayatosh Says:

    jtran: agreed 6.26.10 tweezer is $$. and 7.31.2009 tweezer while seriously $$$ right in the middle, looses the groove and gets a little less cohesive towards the end, but just pulls out the $$$ overall rating.

    spinning 9.18.99 tweezer now. tube, then the much vaunted boogie on

  10. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Kaya- just spun that one. Slowed down, spacey Tweezer. Typical of ’99.

    I’ll give it a $$.

  11. ThePigSong Says:

    TTFF = last weeks jam trivia?

  12. kayatosh Says:

    nice. got that tweez 9.18.99 in my earholes now. like you said, slow and spacey. it’s the drumming that brings it home for me. it’s a keeper.

    $$ is great. $ is good, worth mentioning. and $$$ is reserved for the truly standout, exceptional tunes. I may be a little too loose with the $$$’s.

  13. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Ezekiel Thaddeus has a nice ring.

  14. kayatosh Says:

    the coedine tweezer.

  15. KWL Says:

    damn, great discussion this afternoon

    this place is great

  16. Mr.Miner Says:

    noone is rocking this trivia quiz yet….

  17. Mr.Miner Says:

    Camden CDT – $$

    ^ not sure what scale this $$ thing goes up to, but I’m pretty sure that’s not a high enough rating. My favorite jam of leg I methinks (or Merri Rock and Roll)

  18. KWL Says:

    i’m with miner

    camden chalkdust is up there

  19. kayatosh Says:

    i found the camden CDT $$ rating a little suspect as well. that thing is a masterpiece and it earns a third $ from me. stamped $$$

  20. Mr.Palmer Says:

    as per Kaya..

    “$$ is great. $ is good, worth mentioning. and $$$ is reserved for the truly standout, exceptional tunes. I may be a little too loose with the $$$’s.”

  21. kayatosh Says:

    then again one man’s $$ is another’s $$$.

  22. KWL Says:


    i can get 4 points. that enough to win??

  23. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Leg 1 rankings

    1. CDT camden

    2. Blossom numerline

    3. Mpp RnR

    4. Mpp Tweezer

    i’m sure i’m missing something huge , this is off top of my head.

  24. Mr.Palmer Says:

    oh yeah, i liked Portsmouth Gin a lot. #5

  25. kayatosh Says:

    it works for me and I’m glad that it’s caught on a little. simple system – 3 buckets to choose from. all subjective of course, but it starts to put us on the same pg. when talking about how a particular song or set or show struck us. can’t take it all that seriously, but it does look cool in print. it makes me feel rich and feelin rich is better than actually being rich.
