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 hear ya Bingos. My Dad bought the NSDQ at it’s high in 2001, at very much my insistence that he was insane and shouldn’t be putting that big of an egg into that bubble. He bought bonds in SGI (Silicon Graphics) and I told him I thought SGI was going bankrupt. I’d rather know nothing about where my money is going, but I inherently don’t trust anyone with it. Worked too hard to get it and seen too many clowns steal it away with bad advice.

    The problems with Pensions are that they are all based on 8% growth a year to make their payouts that they promised. Personally I would LOVE to give my money to someone who promises to return 8% per year and give it back to me in 30 years.

    It was a terrible promise to make and very unrealistic. The world has found out that “defined pension plans” are really going to hurt those that promised them (Governments, ergo Taxpayers) as well as those expecting to receive them (Taxpayers)

    The Ghost mothership is taking of right now. Holy smokes.

    bingos that blows. my ole man bought a fair amount of bank of america stock (BAC) in the $50’s. he died in june 2008 when it was in the $20’s. Now my mom has it at $6. terrific.

  4. kayatosh Says:

    8% return? where?

  5. Mike in Austin Says:

    I believe that’s what CALPERS has baked in to their returns to make sure the Government Pensions of California stay solvent.

    Public pension plans have a median annual assumed rate of return of 8%, according to a recent report by Wilshire Associates, an investment consulting firm. In 2004, Calpers lowered its rate to 7.75% from 8%.

  6. Mike in Austin Says:

    Sorry, misinterpreted that Kaya. That was rhetorical, wasn’t it.

  7. kayatosh Says:

    I was trying to insinuate that an 8% return sounds juicy.

  8. kayatosh Says:

    no worries, MIA. maybe we should go iron things out in the TT for a few?

  9. BingosBrother Says:

    Forgot to mention the kicker. He got a job at a bank doing maintenance to make ends meet and was let go after his smaller bank got eaten up by a bigger bank using govt. funds. I’ll bet every one of us has a similar story to tell about someone they know.

    Cool video T3! North Korean problems>American problems

    the key is to not let life’s unfairness and challenges make you sour. if one can remain sweet and at ease despite the BS and cruelty that pervades our lives, than one has attained enlightenment.

  14. chefbradford Says:

    I am one of those waiting for a return of Glide II. Thanks for an excellent line-up today Mr Miner!

  15. Mike in Austin Says:

    Love that Kaya. I used to have a car sticker from Sailboard Warehouse in St. Paul MN. It said “Attitude is Everything”

    I think that’s kinda paraphrasing your statement there.

    Ghost > Halley’s > Tweezer. Wow.

    I’m shaking my head slowly over here clapping.

    Great pick Miner!

  18. Mulitbeast Says:
