Type II Trivia: The Modern Era

10.31.10 Graham Lucas)

Come one, come all! If you’ve been paying attention for the past couple years, you’ll have as good of a shot at this contest as anyone. Today’s main event is “Type II Trivia: 3.0 Style.” That’s right, all ten audio clips come from this era since Phish returned in 2009. Nobody can claim noobership in this contest, as most of you have all these jams stashed away in soundboard quality on your hard drives and iPods…but can you place them? You can earn a total of twenty points for this contest by naming the song and date (1 point each) of each two-minute audio clip. In the event of a tie, I will devise some sort of tiebreaker. Hopefully this contest will shine a light on some highlights and forgotten moments of the last two years. There are no repeats of songs. Please email your entries to me by 12 pm Pacific tonight to have a valid entry. The winner will be announced either tomorrow or Thursday and will have the choice of any piece of merch on-sale for $7.77 in Phish’s Dry Goods Seven Below Sale, including CDs, t-shirts and more. Good luck to all, and have fun!

    I have 7 put down so far. I think I got atleast 5 right. Still working on it. Some of the jams are just so damn similar in groove they could come from any song. I will get this done haha

  2. kayatosh Says:

    #10 is downright scary.

  3. voopa Says:

    Z is a solid MMJ album. Lay Low and Off the Record are two of my favorite songs.

  4. Mr.Palmer Says:

    one month from today, Phish destroys MSG. This makes me happy.

  5. sumodie Says:

    sounds like BK is on his way to winning…that means I can stop pretending to figure them out

    Back to spinning some gd GD!

  6. John Says:


    Thanks for some insight. Z and Okonokos are great… check out It Still Moves (my fav of their albums). Did you get to see Further or Levon at Outside Lands? I’ve been wanting to see them for awhile now


    Definately check out a MMJ show… they will hook you. I don’t think they’re touring right now, but probably in the summer.

  7. BingosBrother Says:

    yeah John, I wouldn’t worry too much about what the average Phish show attendee thinks. For some reason some fans think the more they hate on things, the cooler they’ll look. Their loss.

    It Still Moves gets a full run through every year that I drive back to Chicago from Champaign after the state wrestling tournament. That record is perfect for driving through wide open farmland in the middle of winter.

  8. garretc Says:


    Yup, those two were the highlights of my day, in fact! Levon band was great, cause it was on a stage set away from the main area and all the older Dead fans were there for Levon, so it was super laid back. And Further was great too, you could tell they were stoked to be playing in SF in Golden Gate Park again. The Time from that show was amazing, big ol’ Phil bombs dropping all over the place…

  9. John Says:

    Nice… always interested in hearing other people’s opinions of ‘good driving music’.

  10. BrandonKayda Says:

    #5 is so familiar but I cannot place it – almost finished with getting these.

    2 and 7

  11. Lycanthropist Says:

    howdy folks

    it seems my ’09 knowledge is coming up short!

  12. Lycanthropist Says:

    but on a good note it has brought me back to some great jams

    Asheville Ghost > FEFY for instance.

    Been too long since I spun that.

    Great peak.

  13. BingosBrother Says:

    Bright Eyes “Lifted or The Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground” is a nice driving record. Starts off with someone puttin a tape in the car deck and all the people in the car talking over it until they get shushed by someone who really wants to hear the music. This is coming from a huge Bright Eyes fan though.

  14. Custy the Clown Says:

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who struggled placing these 10 tunes. I’ve got 2 but the rest would require hours of guessing and checking. Seems like some of them are ambient groove segues they grew fond of.

    Soul Coughing CDs seem to continually make there way into my long drive rotations. There are only 3, and each have elements I like and don’t like but the drum n’ base beat, experimental grooves, and Daughty’s hyperactive poetic verses suites me fine for pushing through on long drives.

  15. brother Says:

    Saw MMJ a few months ago and loved it! Really really tore it up with a great section of trippy slowed down stuff in the middle of the set. Preservation Hall Jazz band opened for them and came out and played with them at the end of the show. Great show. Highly recommend.

  16. garretc Says:

    I really like spinning this weird band from VT when I drive…

    The Fish, I think they’re called?

    Probably not your guys’ bag, but yeah…

  17. Guyute711 Says:

    About 7 mins in this really gets nice.

  18. garretc Says:

    This isn’t really driving, but almost every single time I’ve gone on a plane in the last couple years I’ve listened to a live Simon & Garfunkel bootleg I have, and that always makes travel a little more bearable

  19. BrandonKayda Says:

    #7 is going to drive me insane – I have heard that jam so many times, but cannot for the life of me figure out what song it is from. I know what it isn’t, so that helps a lot

  20. Mr.Miner Says:

    one entry so far? come on people! Step it up. This is the easy one!!

  21. BrandonKayda Says:

    I’m getting there Miner – I have 6 of them that I know are correct, but the last four are tricking me. I just don’t want to mix my songs up 😀

  22. Mr.Miner Says:

    take your time BK…you’ve only got two people to beat right now….

  23. BrandonKayda Says:

    Miner –

    Just sent in my entry. That was pretty easy for the most part – but regardless a couple of them threw me.

  24. garretc Says:

    So I’m spinning Hot Rats for the first time, and damn if The Gumbo Variations doesn’t remind me of a Phish jam!

  25. purplehumpbackwhale Says:
