TTFF: Relax

6.12.11 - Merriweather (Graham Lucas)

Gumbo” 7.22.03 I, Noblesville, IN

A hugely cathartic first set jam that doesn’t get its proper due. Welcome to Friday.


Reba” 8.2.03 I, Limestone, ME

There’s nothing quite like a daytime “Reba” in Limestone. And this one has a post hiatus twist.



After Midnight Reprise”  12.31.99, Big Cypress, FL

The peak of the Big Cypress’ marathon set which came out of “Drowned.”



Horn” 7.15.98 I, Portland, OR

A beauty spawned out of nowhere.



Slave to the Traffic Light” 6.15.95 II, Atlanta, GA

A patient and slowly unfolding gem.



If I Could” 12.29.94 I, Providence, RI

Trey and Page come together in a poignant and powerful version.



Tweezer” 8.1.99 II, Niigata, JP

Slow and melodic in the Field of Heaven.



Prince Caspian” 7.31.99 II, Niigata, JP

You know the “2001 -> Bowie” from this set, but do you know this crushing “Caspian?” I kid you not.



You Enjoy Myself” 6.9.00 E, Tokyo, JP

A hearty helping of laid-back funk was served as the encore of Japan 2000’s first show.



Harry Hood” 9.11.99 II, George, WA

There’s nothing quite like a “Hood” at The Gorge. This one is big time.

    Anyhoo…. Friday! Hope it is a great one for each of you, make this weekend count.

    Also, if anyone is wondering what Phish 3.0 is capable of, please listen to Tahoe Light.

  2. angryjoggerz Says:

    Thank you, SW. I appreciate it. His entire written archive is housed at UW Madison, I have never seen it. Seems like it would be pretty intense.

  3. SillyWilly Says:

    The Tahoe Light almost made me Spilly

    ask Alf- who let me share in his reserve water supply.

    I needed a minute…

  4. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Tahoe Light is great.

    I guess i’ll have to head into NYC on Monday night and check out Spiritualized. Reviews have been solid.

  5. voopa Says:

    Friday First tube. Ahhh.

  6. SillyWilly Says:

    What was his first name, AJ?

    if you don’t mind me looking him up?

    I can understand if you don’t want to talk about this anymore, too. I respect your feelings.

  7. Spasm Waiter Says:

    Miner- I am building a retaining wall from 6X6s and backfilling. Your selected jams will make my chain gang labor so much more enjoyable. Thanks as always. Really great selection today.

    @pencil- what role do you play at Babar? Is that a pbs program? I am new to the daddy game and don’t know the shows yet.

  8. Robear Says:

    “I’ll just spin one of Miners jams, then get right back to work”

    -said no one, ever

    If u want to love 3.0, spin Tahoe ‘Light’. If u want to know why 3.0 can be a head scratcher, spin either first set. 🙂

  9. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    I like the first tahoe first set just fine.
    no head scratching needed here. 8)

  10. Robear Says:

    AJ, who encouraged you to learn Chinese? Or did you think of that on your own? That was a wise move.

    When I was younger, learning Chinese wasn’t on the radar. People said learn Japanese if u want to be set up for the future.

  11. SillyWilly Says:

    The Tahoe Light happened

    then I saw Robear and Mitch at Custy Crib West…

    Silly (who’s perception of time was irreversibly altered during the Tahoe Light): “-”

    Robear: Hey, Silly! How was that for you?

    Silly: “….” “….”

    Robear: “that good, huh?”

    Silly: “—”

    Robear: “Right on, man.”

    Silly: nods his head

    Robear: “Silent-Willy”

  12. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    so how many variations on the “see the city, see the zoo” line will we see immortalized in t-shirt/sticker form for OKCZoo this summer?

    vegas has the early o/u at 12

  13. angryjoggerz Says:

    Silly, same name as me. I am a Junior. Thus my “dj name”, Junior D. Speaking of…

    Dj Junior D – 312 Acid

    This is a mix I did of all 97-92 Chicago Acid House, very jacky, very on point, very proper. Probably my favorite mix I have ever done. House nation.

    I should be recovered from Shpongle just in time for Spiritualized in Boston next Wed. Serious work to do still to get into shape for multi night runs on tour. Kinda ouchy this morning. But first took care of head.

    Driving down to MA tomorrow for an analog synth geek out meeting, me and a bunch of other Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream fans plugging modular synths together to make an unholy noise in a small art gallery. Should be great fun, other than the stress of hauling the gear both ways.

    “Rock and roll isn’t about fame, sex, and drugs. Rock and roll is about moving heavy black boxes from one end of town the the other in a van.”

    Morning to all.

  15. SillyWilly Says:

    word, AJ

    thanks a lot for the info and the mix!

  16. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    for the skate crew

    pairs up nicely with these patient jamz. just turn down the volume on the vimeo player and enjoy

  17. SillyWilly Says:

    William H Bonney and I developed one hard and fast rule for tour in AC for Halloween.

    He’s a libertarian and I’m an anarchist, so rules aren’t really our thing.

    But, we realized we needed just one:

    Ya gotta stay hydrated.

  18. Robear Says:

    Silly, u would have fit right in with me, Mr. c, and Uncle Eb after the Greek run.

    #speechless #giggling

  19. angryjoggerz Says:

    Robear – I studied Art History at university with a focus on China. I had a great prof mentor who encouraged me to do Chinese, but I only started my last semester at school, then stayed on an extra semester after graduation to continue with language and Chinese philosophy. My Chinese teacher asked me if I wanted to work in China and I had nothing else going so I said why not, he introduced me to his university in Xi’an and I was offered the job and went with the intention of going one year, but stayed two.

    Chinese was not very hip then, and I was the only non-native speaker in my class, so I got lots of personal instruction. Learning Chinese and moving to China was the best decision I have ever made. Without that I would not be in career I am in, would not have met my wife and then my kid, my best friend, not have met world leaders, traveled all over Asia, etc.

    I give the credit to my parents as well who not only encouraged me to go to China, but also earlier in school, when faced with the question “should I go on tour with the Grateful Dead this summer” told me that I would have to come up with 10 good reasons not to if I did not go.

    Thanks mom and dad!

    The Tahoe Light and the 8 year olds in the casinos after the show teamed up to transform my basic paradigm.

    I thought I knew who I was, but somewhere wandering around the casino trying to find an exit, I walked out of my old brain.

    Tela’s thinks it was absurd that we were following him.

    But he was my guide into a new state of consciousnes.

    By the time, Tzara’s took control, the transformation was complete. I just had to learn how to communicate from my new perspective.

    I also had to go to sleep – as Alf’s pictures from the night document vividly.

  21. SillyWilly Says:

    that’s awesome, AJ

  22. Robear Says:

    Wow AJ! Awesome. Yeah, we r about the same age, and it wasn’t on my radar at all. Fascinating. +10000000000 for good mentors

  23. albert walker Says:
