^ dang . word @ Miner. i feel ya. Not making any assumptions about how much tour will heat up or not.. but 4 shows into tour and no lifetime jam is a bit tuff to swallow for a ‘psych journey’ lover such as myself.
From what I’ve heard Fish is ready to go and Trey, like AW said, is experimenting. I agree with C that this portends jambrosia. Cup is still so full after Magna, though. Will be happy with anything at the Mann. Joy first set, Fuego second set album cover FTW
This Twist is pretty good. Page is going nuts in the crunchy plex build. Tasteful little second mini peak and denouement into 20 Yrs later
Maybe I’m reaching though? It’s true that none of this music has had the IT factor yet that says its on (a la Bend Simple last year). I’m all in though, as always
Deer Creek was fun. Not a great show IMO. It was night 3. Exhausting ride down from Chicago. Took over 2 hours just to get out of Chicago because of the parade. Then the lovely construction going on down I-65. Turned a 3 hour drive into a 6 hour drive. Nap was missed. The late start and rain seemed to cause the show to kind of be rushed. I also had to see about a girl that I met on the way in and didn’t really get into the music so much. Gotta do what you gotta do.
I loved Wrigley night 2. Night 1 was good. Something about night 2. Living in the music? Who knows. It was on. And the L was working great. In house bias I’m certain.
the fact that Trey has fucked with all of his guitars now probably means it will take him a little longer to settle into a tone for this tour
The guitarist shares more, “Another detail that’s interesting is that during the Fare Thee Well shows, I started using a single coil pick up in the center position and I got used to that sound – so last summer with Phish I replaced the pick ups on all my old guitars with double space single coil pickups that fit into the existing space where my old humbuckers used to be. And I was able to use that single coil sound throughout last summer,” Anastasio shared. “So for this tour, Paul added a switch to all of my guitars where I can access the same middle position single coil sound out of the old humbucker pick ups, which have now been returned back into the guitars, including the new one.”
The guitarist went on to explain more of the changes for this summer, “The single coil sound with the new switch is very similar to the single coil center position sound that I had last summer and at the Fare Thee Well shows. So, in other words…the way the guitars are switched today, I can access either sound with one guitar: the glassier single coil sound from last summer, and the full on original ‘Divided Sky’/’Squirming Coil’ fat, mid-range sound from all the previous years of Phish.” He revealed that this summer will be the first time he will have access to both of those sounds on one guitar.
Many more “what guitar is t playing” nerds out there beyond me but yeah he’s still futzing around w his axes. Pretty sure he stopped that last summer right around the Atlanta kdf. I think scotty/yemblog kept track last summer. Way over my head. Bring the fucking ruckus tomorrow.
Just spun majority of DC II save Wangsuit & Shade. Also just like Possum. Fun boogie tune. They’re clearly still getting their sea legs back. Well Terry really. But completely hooked up just not quite happening. Yet. It’ll happen.
