Ten Tunes For Friday: Summer ’95

Jones Beach '95

When thinking of summer Phish, one usually recounts warm summer nights and blissful musical experiences. But in the Summer of ’95 , the band explored some of the darkest and most experimental music of their career. Routinely cranking out 20 minute jams of psyche-challenging madness, Phish ripped off numbing excursions nightly during a spectacular summer. If you liked exploration, Summer ’95 was for you. Nearly impossible to choose only ten jams for Friday, this playlist represents a small selection of what this tour has to offer. For more a more complete run through the abyss of this season, check out “Miner’s Picks: Summer ’95.” Enjoy your Friday!


The Curtain > Stash” 6.17 II

A demonic end to the first set in Gainesville, Virginia.



Ha Ha Ha > David Bowie” 6.15 II


One of many deeply exlploratory “David Bowies” of the summer.



Down With Disease > Free” 6.26 II

Perhaps my favorite segment of outlansdish psychedelia of the entire summer. This one is not for the faint-hearted.



Runaway Jim > Makisupa” 7.2.II

7.4.2010 (W.Rogell)

A heavy and grinding, set-opening “Jim” finally gave way to smooth reggae rhythms at Sugarbush’s summer ending weekend.



Mike’s > Hydrogen > Weekapaug” 6.10 II

The Red Rocks “Mike’s Groove.” ‘Nuff said.



Tweezer” 6.14 II

Got an hour?

    BK, do you really need to know how magnets work?

    In a nutshell, magnets work by something aligning either with or in opposite to the something else. Outside of a nutshell all that is contrary to what I just wrote.

    Nice. I almost replied to some of the stupid questions I got last night with, “How do magnets work?” but I knew it would be lost on them.
