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!

    @purple – i was joking about preferring it over AC, but i was just pumpin it in my truck, and i have love for Farmhouse

    it actually has a ton of bass, and sounds great on automobile hi fi systems with sub woofers

  2. lumpyhead Says:

    thanks for the congrats everybody. flights booked, hotels booked. Now I just have to figure out where Lucy ran off too and I’m set.

  9. angryjoggerz Says:

    Damn, that reminds me I need to book flights for MSG.

    I want to listen to Fall 2010 shows, I really do, but I cannot get past Utica. The Saw it Again > Antelope just really does it for me, as does that insanse Split>have Mercy. Just real highlights for Phish for me.

    Still have not spun AC, probably should get on that.

    “slap down statement of the day:

    i think the fukuoaka Twist was disjointed. on close listen i don’t hear the full band gel.”

    ::wolfman authoritatively bitch slaps gdiddy::

    Somebody had to do it…

    I have no way to listen to the trivia clips from computer lab, but I’m anxious to get a taste. If I know Miner, ‘Possum’ is the correct answer for a minimum of 50% of the jams with ‘Cavern’ constituting the other 50%.

    @AJ, Providence R n’ R>Carini stat, followed by Manchester in it’s entirety! You will not be dissapointed.

    My 3 YO passed a litmus test of sorts tonights. After throwing out the names of each member of Phish he not only knew who they were but had the instruments right. His affinity for the Clifford Ball DVD helped. OK, he’ll be 4 in Drcember, but damn I’m proud.

  12. Mr.Miner Says:

    bbers with a notably poor showing in the contest today. I think i still have 4 entries. one or two non BBer…where your game people?!?

  13. Mr.Miner Says:

    i think the fukuoaka Twist was disjointed. on close listen i don’t hear the full band gel.”

    ^ I pity the fool…

  14. vegas wolfmans Says:

    Also, the jacket kicks ass IMO. Highly recommend. It Still Moves is one of my favorite records by any band ever of all time. Ever. Great live show too. Not to be confused with a “jam” band or and are not highly improvisational, but stellar nontheless. In a rock out with cock out americana rootsy with feedback kind of way.

  15. joe Says:

    tis better to say nothing and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and have it confirmed (or however that saying goes), I guess Mr. Miner. I didn’t know there was going to be a quiz today and didn’t study last night is my excuse.

  16. jdub Says:

    You gave us till midnight Miner. Games not over yet.

  17. Mr.Palmer Says:

    midnight , west coast time, no less.

    FTR- i suck at this stuff. memory isn’t a strong suit of mine.

  18. angryjoggerz Says:

    Thanks, Jdub. Providence being loaded up right now.

    In fairness, I have listened to lots of bits and pieces of Fall, and was at SC and stuff, but that Utica just hit me in the right place (and Guyute is one of my least favorite ph songs).

    I have no game at all on the jam quiz.

  19. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    fukuoko twist or the jam after twist? cuz technically they ended twist and then played an 18? minute jam seperate from twist. but yeah, both segments are fucking awesome

  20. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @miner, i could only get 4 for sure, it’s way harder than i thought and i figured 4 wasn’t enough to win

  21. EL Duderino Says:

    It’s all one DF

    Twist is like Phish doing their own version of Dark Star IMHO.

    It’s like a different band… hey that’s why they make them fancy tape recorder thingys

  22. jdub Says:

    The BB should throw Miner a pop quiz. It seems so obvious when you’ve seen every show and written about it. 😉

  23. Mr.Palmer Says:

    these aren’t easy at all. Unless you spend a lot of time and do a bunch of cross-referencing. That, or i just suck?

  24. EL Duderino Says:

    are we supposed to pick actual dates and venues or just what Song/Jam it is?

  25. EL Duderino Says:

    I’ve never participated
