Phish Thoughts: The Book

> Check out this SPAC preview interview I did with The Daily Gazette of Schenectady, New York.

By Brian McElhiney

Phish are really on a roll this summer. In fact, the shows the Vermont-based jam band has performed so far represent the best of the now four-year reunion era, according to San Francisco-based journalist, Dave Calarco. “They came out this summer really with a purpose, it seems,” Calarco said from Phish’s recent tour stop in Carmel, Ind. “The last time they played, which was the New Years’ run at MSG [Madison Square Garden in New York City], the shows seemed somewhat lackluster…” READ ON!

> Here’s a book review of Phish Thoughts in Nug Magazine.

By Marco Alvarez 

I first heard the American rock band Phish back in ‘03 through my college roommate who studied music and played the sax. There would often be music playing in our apartment being that he was a saxophonist, and my other roommate, a guitarist. I never learned to play an instrument myself, but I always appreciated hearing the sound of my friends jamming out or the sound of their favorite artists blanketing over the place with their charm. We all just shared what we liked…READ ON!

    real nice photos…..really wish I could see them this summer.

    Would love to hear Phish cover some Yo La Tengo…” Pass the Hatchet, I think I’m Goodkind” would be one to cover

    Crazy lightning storms this afternoon, finally bringing rain to the high country which is desperately needed. Made my night shift a busy one….which is awesome, and rewarding.

    about to take off into a late night adventure from richmond, va to saratoga. ~ 10 hour drive split between my comrades and I. getting all my camping equipment together got my me very excited for this phish/birthday weekend! see you all in the woods!

  9. RamblinMind Says:

    Oh! Sweet Nuthin, Train Round the Bend, Who Loves the Sun, New Age, and I Found a Reason remain

  10. yematt Says:

    my me. i me mine.

  11. yematt Says:

    would love to hear any VU.. especially if they brought back new age or who loves the sun

    (secretly hoping for a emotional rescue as wel)

  12. GhostPhunk Says:

    Happy bday yematt! Safe travels. The Phunks just finished loading the mobile. Packing done, game on come morning. One last stop to pick up an alien… and alf.

    Just arrived in Schenectady, my pre-SPAC destination this weekend. Drove through the Adirondacks (Canton to Amsterdam) for the hell of it. Absolutely amazing drive, great scenery. If you’re coming from up north, do this sometime.

  14. vegas wolfmans Says:

    Great pictures! Who Loves The Sun @SPAC.

  15. snow Says:

    I read you comments on the last thread, @MiA. All I can say is fair enough my man.

    I myself have not endured the tenure track wheel but have friends who have. One need look no further than the Physics department and the whole string theory debacle to see the politics play out (not necessarily the theory itself but the politics that surround it).

    On another topic, have you ever read Thomas Kuhn’s structure and theory of scientific revolutions?

    after careful consideration: i am confident in proclaiming alpine fee as IT. very picturesque phish communication. fresh ideas with ample space where all 4 share and create a new sound. they dont sound rushed but rather they sound perfectly loose. its amazing. fish keeps it moving with his cymbals and its just the perfect ground work for trey and mike to weave ideas on without the jam getting idle. the sound is round and very airy…. its not dark and heavy, its deep and emotive. patient but sluiced with energy. flowing from their soul to yours. very representative of an aged musical powerhouse. this music blows me away. maybe the superball souncheck comes to mind as similar in approach but i think this fee is in a league of its own.

  17. RamblinMind Says:

    The politics of tenure is just awful. At least in the sciences you have the choice to opt out, as Dr P seems to have done. We in the humanities don’t really have that option because we’re kind of useless outside academia…

    That’s not entirely true, as evidenced by a spate of articles recently talking about how businesses are looking for philosophy students (or similar areas) to find people who think critically. In my experience though, and the experience of others I know. that’s kind of bullshit.

    If they follow the Halloween path, Talking Heads will be get some love.

    My choice pick would be – Any tune > storage jam style > Listening Wind

    ^^ TRUTH.

    So Kuroda seems to have dropped the four oval ring lights behind each member that were present in Portsmouth and befOre. They were def not on stage at DC > Alp or Jones Beach (from the pics). I think they added a nice dynamic to the backdrop without being tacky or overwhelming. I wonder what happened with them…

  21. litteringand Says:

    Here’s my out of left field call- They do a Genesis cover

  22. MiA Says:

    30 day money back guarantee.

  23. Guyute711 Says:

    The best thing about those pics is those stupid ovals are gone. Now I just hope they are gone for good.

  24. Mr palmer Says:

    Kuroda said he didn’t like them, so he got rid of them.

  25. Luther T. Justice Says:

    The ovals died after Blossom. DC was oval free.
