Tunes of Tuesdays Past


6.27.10 (Graham Lucas)

Welcome to Tuesday! All songs in today’s playlist were performed on Tuesday, therefore bringing synchronicity between today and this music. Enjoy some of these lesser known selections.


Wolfman’s Brother” – 6.24.97 II, Strasbourg, FR

A heavy helping of raw, unpasteurized cowfunk from Europe ’97.



Bathtub Gin > Cities” – 7.1.97 II, Paradiso, NL

How about some more?



Ghost > Halley’s > Tweezer” – 11.24.98 II, New Haven, CT

Fast forward to the last Tuesday of tour during Fall ’98 in New Haven Coliseum.



Mike’s Song” 10.29.96 II, Tallahassee, FL

I often push this “Mike’s” in which the band got in some pre-Atlanta practice, vamping over Remain In Light’s “Houses in Motion” during the song’s second jam.



Simple” – 12.9.97 II, State College, PA

One of Fall ’97 most exploratory jams comes from one of its least talked about tour stops at Penn State.



Glide II” – 5.16.95, Lowell, MA

After a Voters For Choice benefit showcased six new originals and three new covers, many fans have been waiting for a return of this one-timer ever since.



David Bowie” – 6.13.95 II, Atlanta, GA

Summer ’95 + “Bowie” = psychedelic monstrosity



Keyboard Cavalry > Jam w/ MMW” – 10.17.95, New Orleans, LA

After playing an opening set for Phish in New Orleans, John Medeski, Billy Martin, and Chris Wood came out opening for an extended jam session with the guys to close out the second set. Fishman spent stints on vacuum and trombone.

    Of course Bingos. Didn’t get to listen to any Phish while preparing for wrestling back in the day. Listened to a little when I went back for a couple tourney’s a decade later.

    Happy days MIA!

    Me neither G7, but introduced it to my little brothers and their friends. Very cool to see a kid get all pumped by PYITE and go tear someone up. Lose Yourself has been a mainstay the last couple years as pre State Tourney music.

    Fuck Fracking?

    greetings fellow mind travelers.

    gonna check out miner’s tuesday gems momentarily.

    went a day w/o posting here, as I was in a troubling trade against. lacking patience, I decided to go gainst the grain and short the R2K yesterday. It proceeded to climb throughout the day as I continued to add to the losing short position. R2K ended with an over 3.2% gain on the day, and I went to bed deeply under water and sweatin bullets. light sleeping (aided by jah love); up at 5:30 AM watching europe and the euro. crazy morning w/ US futures all over the place. 3MM and CMI crap results and gloom forecasts helped my short as did continued confusion in europe.

    remarkably, I scaled out of the entire position today with a decent gain. it might go on to be a more profitable pos. than what i extracted from it, but after being so far behind on the trade and getting a chance to get out alive and w/ a decent reward taboot, i consider myself lucky.

    my lack of trading discipline was rewarded, but i feel like a rabbit was pulled out of the hat. This may be the extent of the minor pullback I was playing by being short. S&P might pull back to 1230 or even 1223, but if that holds, and it should, mrkt. resumes the uptrend. Once 1257/1260 is firmly conquered. 1300’s by year end.

    good luck, man.

    i’ll send you my best financial vibes, but you’ll probably have to direct them to the correct places.

  7. kayatosh Says:

    silly: I no longer need the luck today, but thank you. I am chillin. the luck you sent me rebounded off me and is headed back your way.

    trading could be the craziest way to make $. you live and die by your own decisions. a few bad moves and you’re sunk financially and emotionally, wishing you had never got involved in the first place.

    “raw, unpasteurized cowfunk”

    ^^^ brilliant

    familiar w/ the picks from 6.24.97, 7.1.97, 11.24.98, and 5.16.95 (one of my fave. sublime phish moments glide II — flip flip flip). all are stellar. looking fwd. to checking the others.

  8. Kaveh Says:

    @BB: The Mike’s chart is perfect timing, because I just fired up the pre-Halloween Mike’s.

  9. Guyute711 Says:

    The drop back into Mike’s was a little abrupt and not that smooth. I think I’ll let it slide. It’s nice to hear that song with the extra percussion.

  10. SillyWilly Says:

    I wouldn’t be very good at it, Kaya.

    I bet it’s a pretty good exercise for the nerves.

    What do you guys think? Do you think you can master anxiety by exposing yourself to stressful situations over and over again until you’re used to the stress?

    Or do you see yourself as a vessel holding anti-stress? You’re exposed to a stressful situation and a little of the anti-stress is tapped out. You need to let it fill back up, or under too much stress at once the vessel will crack?

    probably very individual specific, no doubt.

  11. ae Says:

    nothing higher than a b on that mike’s chart in 3.0. no surprise there. i listened to 12/31/98 last night…terrific mikes h2 week. actually said, maybe they kick off the run this year in style with a true old school mikes (with 2nd jam). that would be a winner.

  12. Guyute711 Says:

    8/7/93 Mike’s that is all.

    Glide II, it’s no Unforgiven II

  13. albert walker Says:

    any 3.0 Mike’s that got a B must have paid off someone for that grade.

    can’t think of one with anything interesting going on. a few of the week’s almost get interesting but Mike’s are so flat.

    given some of the B ratings on 95-97 versions I would say the best you get out of a 3.0 version is C-

  14. BingosBrother Says:

    Glide II is beautiful.

    SillyThoughts are awesome.

    3.0 Mikes are not.

  15. albert walker Says:

    fun stuff Kaya

    interesting place here. data has looked good out of US and China. earnings have been decent. for every miss like MMM there has been a beat like HON.

    word out of Europe is a shit show still on the bailout meeting tomorrow.

    so you have that push and pull between decent US earnings and potential of China soft landing against Europe not quite solving their issues.

    not sure if Europe shits the bed tomorrow that this market will shrug past it. seems like the recent move up has been pricing in a resolution.

    one thing I know is I’d hate to be day trading this BS.

  16. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    Today is also Ummagumma Day!

  17. kayatosh Says:

    AW: that about sums it up. I played for a pullback in this powerful melt up and almost got stomped. luckily europe is a shit show.

    Silly: trading is an exercise in managing stress and emotions. Continue to apply logic and have a plan.

    The positions that move against you test the nerves (and the ego) the most. Thankfully, i am able to tap into yogic breathing techniques (primarily dirga pranayam and ujjayi) that help me immensely in these situations.

    “Do you think you can master anxiety by exposing yourself to stressful situations over and over again until you’re used to the stress? ”

    great ?. As far as trading stress, i’ve been at it a while and it doesn’t seem to be any less stressful, only more familiar. intense each time when real dough is on the line.

    I also like the second part of your inquiries touching on the idea that within each person there is a balance of stress and anti-stress.

    For me, I manage the stress by acknowledging it and keeping it contained. This is where a game plan helps, i.e., if the trade blows up what is the exit plan and what is the max. damage that will be incurred. Also, after being through the stress of a difficult trade, I find I need to step back and recharge. speaking of which . . .

    So, who has checked their card balance already today?

    Vegas is less rigged than Wall Street for gamblers like yourself.

  20. albert walker Says:

    when the trade blows up against you.
    double down.
    puff one.
    pray for the best.

    I love the rush and stress of trading. so much fun. makes going to work a bit more exciting.

  21. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    wow, sick list miner, i honestly havent heard a good number of these! pumped to get home and give it a glisten

    also i love the term “unpasteurized cowfunk”

  22. albert walker Says:

    wallstreet is only rigged against stupid people which there are tons of in this world. Taking the other side of dumb asses can be done with a bit of research.

    just look at all the douches that bought NFLX at $125 because they bought it at $250 and were trying to save the trade.

    dumb at $250. even dumber at $125. taking the other side of that dumb trade=$$$$$

  23. purplehumpbackwhale Says:

    damn how he loved that fucking glisten

  24. kayatosh Says:

    wow, aw, it’s as of you can see me over here.

    netflix was a train wreck waiting to happen. confusion at the helm of a cult stock = hard tank.

    looks like the stick and move on the short pos. was the right call; mrkt. looks wants to rebound.

  25. Robear Says:

    For you smart ass stock experts:

    “He’s the most dangerous sports bettor in the history of Nevada — history of the world,” said oddsmaker Kenny White.

    Why did he finally agree to talk to 60 Minutes? Walters said he wanted to get some things off his chest about Las Vegas and gambling, to let the rest of the country know that legal gambling is far more honest than the massive fraud that is so common on Wall Street.

    “I lost $12 million on four publicly traded companies — WorldCom, Enron, Tyco and PurchasePro. When I made my investments, I relied on audited financial statements from big six accounting firms, on analysts who looked at the companies and said everything was on the up and up. And I lost $12 million and all four of these deals were total frauds. I believe on Wall Street, in one millisecond, there’s more dishonesty than has taken place in the entire history of sports betting, poker and casino gambling,” he said.
