Ten Tunes For Friday: Spring ’92

Spring 1992 T-Shirt (Pollock)

Last Friday we looked at highlights from 2010, and this Friday we dig eighteen years earlier into the Spring of 1992. This year ushered in an era of creative growth that would peak at the end of 1995. Let’s take a look at one of Phish’s early creative peaks in Spring 1992—in exclusively soundboard fashion. Happy Friday!

    Family is good. All watching Jaws. Fireplace lit. cocktails are cold.

    Life is good.

  2. neemor Says:

    Wow.
    That’s one helluva trivia question/stat.

    This will be the first Super Bowl in history involving both teams without cheerleaders.

    Not sure how I feel about that.
    They should think about bringing in the hottest cheerleaders in the NFL-
    The Iggles.

  3. neemor Says:

    For future reference to all of you on lot.
    If willowed offers you a “cocktail”, be aware that you will not be driving anywhere for at least three days.

  4. Gavinsdad Says:

    All good Neems. Everyone should know about the Wetlands. The Nightengale was more like a Mafia Social Club.

    Side note: used to drink Heineken Dark in bottle at the Nightengale. Rando.

  5. willowed Says:

    They do tend to be a little stiff

    High Five
    Medium Five
    Low Five

    Yup……we had a few too many!!

  6. willowed Says:

    It’s actually a strategy Neemor.
    Make the drinks stiff
    It only takes a few to get glowing
    No bathroom breaks
    I don’t miss jams……………ever

  7. gavinsdad Says:

    also the Wetlands basement was a place to puff freely. kind of an amazing bonus at the time that we didn’t really see as a blessing, more as a right.
    but i had my ass handed to me seriously (again) when i puffed a blunt with this guy (enhancing my street cred). we passed it back and forth for a good while. he seemed fine. i seemed like i was high on pcp, which i believe i was.

    when i was in 9th grade we bought a “laced” joint the afternoon before a school dance. i was nervous about hitting it the whole walk home after school and the hours before the dance. my friends and i shared a bottle of Andre Burgandy (as opposed to it’s sister schwag wine Cold Duck) and proceeded to hit the dusted jay, only to get a basic dirtweed high. we were kind of bummed. i guess we thought we were going to break out in spontaneous hallucinations, violence and crimes.

    i have no other place to tell this sad and silly tales than this board. thank you for your patience.

  8. neemor Says:

    Oh, I know that there’s definitely a method to your madness.
    Definitely did the trick.
    I met seven thousand people that night.

    So, I’m thinking that you, myself and TIII should put out an instructional video on dancing at a show.
    Whatcha think?

  9. neemor Says:

    Good stuff, gdad.
    I have never seen PCP.
    Which sucks because it would go a long way to explaining half of my life.

  10. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Basement of the wetlands, blacklights galore. Crazy stuff took place down there. Spend hours reading the stuff on the walls.

  11. lastwaltzer Says:

    @GD

    I now have to stop telling people nobody is going to give you laced shit, you are first person I’ve ever spoken with that was passed a laced blunt.

  12. garretc Says:

    @lw

    Yeah, my best friend actually got laced weed one time. Went out and smoked it during school, then when he was coming back he got so fucked his brain stopped flipping the images from his eyes, so he was seeing things upside down… Needless to say, he bailed on class for the day pretty quick after that!

    But with the amount of times that kid has bought trees, I’d say that that one time is fairly statistically insignificant…

  13. willowed Says:

    only to get a basic dirtweed high. we were kind of bummed. i guess we thought we were going to break out in spontaneous hallucinations, violence and crimes.

    That is such a let down!! hallicinations, vilence and crime are so much fun. I miss being young.

    You know what else is awesome….doing donuts in a parking lot.

    I burned out coming out of a parking lot with my kids in the car today….they thought it was sooooooooooo awesome.

    My wife…not so much

  14. neemor Says:

    llfa
    The kiddos dig when dad drives on the edge a little bit (within reason).
    But I imagine it goes from giggles to screaming and crying quickly if you lose control and nail a curb doing a donut.
    Kids are pussies.

  16. willowed Says:

    me and my buddy smoked a blunt laced with something many years back.. We had a whole plan.
    We were going to go for a ride in my car and puff it down driving thru the mountains near my college. We were really excited.
    Off we go (I was driving), about 2 puffs into the J (5 minutes into the trip), I had to pull over, I was too fucked up to drive.

    We walked 2 miles back to campus. Left my car on the side of the road.

    Come on, we don’t need to hear about your post-show plans dude.
