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.

    I’ll take wallstreet odds over vegas odds any day. in the trading game there’s two sides, and you’re free to take either or both. in vegas you can’t be the house.

    I agree this market seems to want to melt up Kaya. credit is still lagging. The VIX is still stubbornly above 30. but shorts having trouble getting anything going to the downside.

    I really feel europe is being looked past more lately.

    we will be more dependent on US and China data which we could be in a bit of a rebound in after the sharp slowdown during summer.

    any weakness in US and China I believe will need to be the catalyst for another move down. not europe. unless europe turns into a lehman like shit storm which I doubt it will in the near term.

    Bottom paged:

    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.

    That’s interesting Kaya

    There’s a lot of activities that I wonder if my personality is cut out for.

    My first reaction to trading is I probably shouldn’t put that stress on myself because I don’t handle the waiting game or financial stress very well.

    But, on the other hand, I never thought I could be a trial attorney. And while I’m definitely no where near a real trial attorney I learned this summer that despite my anxious disposition, I can, in fact, be good at it.

    So, it opens my mind up to all kinds of possibilities.

    I’m always battling the urge to go and do coupled with feelings of responsibility.

    Going and doing leads to the real and lasting education. As long as it doesn’t end in destruction.

    anyway, managing anxiety seems to be the trick to life.

    anyone that was long Enron unhedged was a total sucka Robear. can’t say I feel sorry for him. They were a highly levered energy firm that turned into a highly levered trading firm. the risk they were putting on when they finally blew up was massive.

    I like to look at the upside. anyone that bought Apple in 2006 is a very happy cat.

    Or anyone that bought lululemon in 2008 at 3.10. Now at 53.45.

    for every Enron there is a massive home run. also there were cats short Enron that hit a home run with enron.

  6. kayatosh Says:

    aw: that’s the takeaway for now.

    anyone who parks that much $12 mil + into any individual stocks, let alone worldcon, enron, and tyco (which was less accting fraud and more stealing of corp. funds by the Koz), is not operating with a sound mind.

  7. SillyWilly Says:

    Man, I’m just not even equipped with the basic knowledge to understand this stuff one way or the other

    makes me pause and think about all the stuff going on in the world that I have no idea where to begin to analyze

    strong argument for flow vs. control, right here for me.

  8. kayatosh Says:

    aw: also, LULU 2 for 1 split at around $120.

  9. Robear Says:

    U guys are too much. He made all those investments well before the meltdown. He was a victim of fraud. What percentage of publicly traded companies alter their books?

    Enough financial talk from me.

    Fresh ocean grown ear wax is a much better topic.

  10. SillyWilly Says:

    aw and kaya

    how’d you guys teach yourselves all of this?

    sounds fascinating

    but it would take a lot of work to understand how to read all the markets, right?

  11. albert walker Says:

    also in 2008 you could have bought anything and done quite well. that’s real trading right there. find the home run no brainer and go fucking big on it. could have been the buying levels of our generation. when we get big market dislocations assets get severely mispriced. even the pros need to sell and that’s when you need to come in.

    out for the day kids
    time to look for some trades

  12. albert walker Says:


    I’ve been working here 5 years in spring. didn’t no shit about markets.

    but now I read the WSJ, Financial Times, NY Times, and Washington post everyday. info is key. study everything. there are trades in everything you read and see.

    also we get all the major broker houses research at work. Do about 4 hours of research reading every day.

    besides that just watching markets and stocks and how they react to different catalysts is all you need to do.

    fun hobby for peeps that want to manage their own money
    anyone can figure it out
    amazing how quickly you learn lessons when losing your own money

  13. Mike in Austin Says:

    Couldn’t agree more with Kaya and AW.

    Fool and his money, and all that. Just now it’s tougher to bet on fundamentals. So much gaming of the system.

    I think investing in what you know is always a good idea. I wish I could put money into Spotify right now. Love that software.

    I was short the b anks in 2008. I didn’t understand them, but I knew they were high on their own bullshit, baTd gamblers, and they couldn’t admit they were insolvent.

    I didn’t understand energy complex derivative trading … So …

    I think Mr. P does though.

    Gracias PB. Great day so far.

  14. Mike in Austin Says:

    Lots of great websites out there like Mötley Fool, Seeking Alpha, etc.

  15. kayatosh Says:

    yep, aw. that was the sweet spot. the fear was paplable back in 2008 early 09. even the oct. 4 low of this year now looks like a high reward/low risk entry.

    silly: what AW said. read and watch. no substitute for watching the tape in real time. for me, it’s been learning by doing. trial and error. keep it simple. stick with a style that works. don’t get greedy. keep breathing.

  16. SillyWilly Says:


    i don’t really have any money to trade, but it sounds like such a fascinating thing to learn about

    so many levels to talk and think about

  18. kayatosh Says:

    ooooh this 10.29.96 mike’s with karl P. is the bomb. thank you.

  19. Mike in Austin Says:

    Thanks Halcy. Good day.

    Robear has a point though. I don’t believe the CNBC/Money Magazine/Jim Cramers for a second. They are clowns and will give terrible advice. There are a lot of “follow the herd” money managers out there. Terrible instincts and uncreative.

    I don’t believe most “experts” aren’t pushing their books.

    And financial reporting is crap. GE has been manufacturing earnings for decades. They were insolvent and Immelt is as bad for that company asv

  20. tela'smuff Says:

    thanks for the tunes. Glide II is a nice stroll down memory lane. be fun for them to bust that out of a murky jam.

    calm before the storm… 10 inches expected tomorrow. (that’s what she said)

  21. Mike in Austin Says:

    as Hastings for NFLX.

    Caveat emptor. Vegas has terrible odds, but they generally don’t change the rules of the game after you have made your bets.

  22. Mike in Austin Says:

    Commencing New Haven Ghost.

  23. BingosBrother Says:

    Yes, you should know the system is rigged, but I still feel bad for great people like my father in law that busted their ass for 40 years working 60 hour weeks(w/out a single hour wasted on phishthoughts) only to be told, yeah, your pension, sorry about that. Your 401k? Decimated. And all so a few billionaires could make a few billion more. Tough lesson to learn that none of it was real.

  24. Robear Says:

    New Haven the most under rated show from that fantastic tour.

  25. Robear Says:

    Bingos, stop bringing more real world facts to this discussion.
