    Lycan, I guess so. Cool. I’d be fine if they were here, everybody seems to get along, and everybody seems open to other people’s opinions on other bands. I like to think that that stems from everybody’s ability to defend Phish to non-believers 🙂

    My one Radiohead show was pretty much everything I wanted from them.

    I was in one of the many great record stores in Athens, GA a few years back, and at the counter they had a handful of bootleg Radiohead concert DVDs. As a rule, I don’t care for that stuff, but there are exceptions…The had copies of the show preceding the one I attended, and the one after (one was in TX, one in GA)

    Picture me as a flower: I wilted. There’s no other word for it

    But please, don’t ever picture me as a flower

    damn

    ^ he sang Karma Police which is my all-time favorite radiohead song. (hence, the rant to Easy Star execs.)

    He really wasn’t too terrible but I also felt like he was trying to mimic Yorke’s voice, which if it were a rock band covering it, I’d have no problems with. Yorke’s voice is so unique you almost have to change the entire genre to change everything about the voice, too.

    It just struck my reggae-sensitive ears right away as essentially un-reggae singing and my stubborn head just dwelled incessantly on it. I really dig the Karma Police arrangement, tho. A lot of my less reggae obsessed friends say that it’s their favorite track on the album so maybe I should just lighten the hell up. 🙂

    Frankie- Meddle is one album I HAVE to replace (my parents got me the big box set a long time ago, like ten years; had I think 6 studio albums, a disc of early cuts, and postcards). All the cd’s are badly damaged or were snatched by an ex who knew how to get to me.

    My roommate played it as we went to sleep my first night in a college dorm (first time I heard the album). I remember flipping out at one point, thinking there was a parade or something going on outside (we were 8 stories up, had the window open).

    I keep meaning to replenish my Floyd, never do.

    Ahh, vinyl. Love it (another good thing about record stores in Athens; they have RECORDS)

    My coworkers got me a turntable/cd/tape player for Christmas this year. No external speakers/sources, but still. A new record player (my other one got trashed at a work-party I threw last summer

    sorry to go back to this but im listening to tweezer miami style again

    quote, tease, whatever, this is the BOY, MANGO’D, SHIT!!!!!!!

  5. chefbradford Says:

    Karma Police, of course you’re right. Not my favorite track on the album though. Who would you have preferred, just out of curiosity?

    BTW, those Amazon samplers are great. Will be burning them for a friend of mine who, like me, is a big fan of reggae, but isn’t familiar with much outside the usual box (Marley, Tosh, etc)

    on way to dead kenny gs

  7. Frankie Says:

    Mitch, the last four minutes of that jam is the culmination point of that spaciness we had been searching for all year… astral music! 🙂

    Phish at it’s very best!

  8. chefbradford Says:

    Selector- oh, also: I can see how Cope might have been trying to mimic Yorke (thanks, Lycan, for the errant e). I just don’t understand why almost anybody (like 99.7731559% of people) would want to try. His voice is up there with Bjork’s, on a level of its own (whether you like it or not)

    I’m agreeing with you here, in a roundabout way; sorry if it’s incomprehensible

  9. Frankie Says:

    Have a blast Lycan!

  10. chefbradford Says:

    Lycan- enjoy! I’m intrigued by all the talk of those guys the last couple of days

  11. Frankie Says:

    Check out my links back on page 12-13 to see if it would be something you would like… now i can see how THAT music could turn some people off… punk jazz MF!!!

  12. Frankie Says:

    That Mike Dillon vibes solo is so classic! Especially the last 10 seconds… Ahahaha!

  13. Mitch Says:

    frankie,
    i was going to post the exact same thing to you. i heard the tweezer again and said this was the jam id been wanting! cheers! i started the ghost and already knew tweezer was top on my chart over ghost.

    whew!

  14. Leo Weaver Says:

    Re: Chance Fisher, Crepes and Bananas is consistently one of my faves.

    @frankie…I caught the original airing of that and was VERY impressed. had never heard of OB before that, bought their classic Pirate’s Choice the next day. thnaks for the link.

    Dub side is fucking awesome. Floyd has historically been one of my favorite bands, but I don’t listen to as much as I used to. Still have to spin something every few weeks. So I guess I’m a little partial to that one over the radiohead take.

    @chef…wuxtry, low yoyo, and big top (if it’s still there) are all little gems of record stores…spent many hours perusing the bins

  15. Mitch Says:

    take that back, this ghost is heating up. lets see where this goes…

  16. Frankie Says:

    Me too for sure! I have to listen to BOTT again also but that Tweezer is really the sound i want to hear from Phish!

  17. Mitch Says:

    ALS TEASE!! 🙂

  18. Selector J Says:

    chef: I pictured an angry Tosh-type singer doing it but most of those dudes aren’t around anymore. Some of the newer dancehall guys Sizzla, Anthony B, Capleton, etc. would have made that track pretty awesome but they still have street cred to maintain so i bet they weren’t too interested.

    Sweeter-voiced guys like freddie mcgregor, johnny osbourne, barrington levy, linval thompson… any of those guys would have killed it.

    And with the people they brought to that album, especially Sugar Minott (who ran Black Roots label and Youth Promotion Sound) I’m sure there were lots of calls that could have been made.

  19. Frankie Says:

    Mike owns this Ghost!

  20. Leo Weaver Says:

    The Miami ghost and tweezer are both what I was chasing this year…BoTT too. Getting the Gorge Sally, RnR, and Gin along with the MSG Light, DWD, and Piper help ease the pain of missing them.

  21. Selector J Says:

    ALS TEASE!! 🙂

    more of a quoted-jam, imo 😉

  22. Frankie Says:

    Re:Orchestra Baobab
    Is it good Leo? I only have A Night at Club Baobab, which i love and highly recommend…

  23. Frankie Says:

    Yeah well, the Gorge ’09 is in a category of it’s own… 😉

  24. sumodie Says:

    orchestra baobab rocks! i recommend ‘Pirate’s Choice’ & ‘Specialists in all styles’. what a great band.

    (happy new year, frankie. we’ll have to hang again!)

    laterz

  25. Leo Weaver Says:

    yeah Frankie, it’s good and def worth picking up. for some reason, it usually ends up in the 2-3 a.m. slot after a night of drinking…especially after a red wine night for some reason. good stuff…I recommend it regularly to peeps with musically open minds or those into “world music”.
