Type II Trivia Test

10.30.98 - Indio, CA (Wendy Rogell)

Today we have a game show on Phish Thoughts – the place where the fun never ends. Phish’s jamming has often been described in layman’s terms as ‘type I’ ( contained jamming that adheres to song structures and chord progressions) and ‘type II’ (open jamming that leaves any semblance of the song it came from). Today’s game centers on Phish’s open jamming. Below are ten audio clips – each a few minutes long, and here is the task. You can gain 3 points per audio clip – 1 for identifying the year, 1 for identifying the song, and 1 for identifying the date – for a total of 30 possible points. The winner will win their choice of a “TAB and the Tabernacle” CD or Mike Gordon’s “Moss,” to be delivered in the near future. Please email your entries with ten numbered lines, one for each guess. All entries must be emailed to mrminer@phishthoughts.com by 7 pm pacific on Friday (tomorrow) night. If multiple entries nail a perfect score, the earlier entry will take the prize. Without further ado, here are the audio clips. Good Luck!

  5. jdub Says:

  6. Phamily Berzerker Says:

  9. Selector J Says:

    “Hey @selector – do you have a list of the artists for When Roots Attack! Vol 7?”

    yes, i nye is going to very cool. after my first nye with phish last year theres no way i can pass up doing it again. plus i’ve never been to new york… so that will be cool too. come to think of it… if it weren’t for the phish i probably would’nt have seen a lot of this country.

  13. yematt Says:

    wow, really? i need to edit!

    :edit: yes, nye is going to *be very cool.

    i know you all get the point.. but still.

    i am a ritard.

  14. sumodie Says:

    PTBM request submitted

    Hard to believe the remaining 2010 Phish tix will be let loose before fall tour begins

  15. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    Indeed, some possible trade and countertrade situations.

  16. sumodie Says:

    Yeah, I’m hoping not to mix December into my Fall tour trading deals -getting my buddies the right Broomfield tickets has been annoying to say the least


    Those 10 trivia clips are such a TEASE -I’ve got a blank space where those type IIs should be

  17. Runaway Jim Says:

    Bought an instant download ticket from Stub Hub and now i’m freaking out. does the seller still have the ability to print the ticket too???

  18. butter Says:

    they have to make sure they sell out Worcester on a Monday, Tuesday

  19. Mr.Miner Says:

    these msg shows are gonna be the ones I had hoped last year’s would be πŸ™‚

  20. butter Says:

    MSG melt down fo shizzle my nizzle

  21. garretc Says:

    Well that’s pretty frickin’ cool. Assuming I don’t have to pay over market for tickets, I’m gonna be making the MSG run on about $550, which is noooooot too shabby for 5 days in NYC over New Years…


    Oh, speaking of dope, I guess extracurriculars might push that price up a bit, but still, pretty cheap!

  22. Gavinsdad Says:

    How long do we have to ptbm??

  23. garretc Says:


    Until Oct. 2

  24. Gavinsdad Says:

    Thx garret

  25. JFlad Says:
