New Phish Release Features 27-Minute ‘AC/DC Bag’ From Boise 1999 [Watch]

first_imgThe late 1990’s was something of a peak period for the band Phish, as they’d grown from a Burlington, VT fascination into a nationwide hit – all via word of mouth and shared tape recordings. The newest archival release from LivePhish focuses in on a great show from 1999, played on 9/14/99 at Boise State University in Boise, ID.The show started off with the ever-energetic “Chalk Dust Torture,” and brought out fan favorites like “The Sloth, “The Curtain > Waste,” “Taste” and more in the first set. The second kept more of that same energy, opening with the bust-out version of Frank Zappa’s “Peaches En Regalia,” played for the first time in 162 shows. The set is perhaps noted for the “Boise Bag” – aka a 27-minute version of “AC/DC Bag” that features Trey Anastasio on keys, Jon Fishman on the vacuum, and quite a bit of exploration. It segued into an incredibly funky “Gumbo,” and finished up the set with a “Down With Disease > Frankenstein.”You can head to LivePhish to order the pro-audio of the performance, and you can watch footage from set two via heady groove on YouTube:Here are the notes given for the show on LivePhish:Phish kicked off their fall 1999 tour in Vancouver, followed by a two-night stand at The Gorge and a Sunday show in Portland.  The tour then turned toward the Sawtooths for a Tuesday night show at Boise State University before continuing in California and beyond.  The BSU Pavilion was opened in 1982 as the Boise State Broncos’ basketball arena with a concert capacity of about 13,000.  Tickets for Phish cost $26.50 with a GA floor and reserved seating in the stands.  This was the band’s second show at this venue (they had opened summer 1995 there) and their last show to-date in Idaho.  Given the days off on both sides, the seven hour drive from Portland and the ten-plus hour drive to Shoreline for the next shows, many opted to skip this gig but those who took the trip were justly rewarded and those who didn’t will never forget it. Boise’s Set I kicked off with Chalk Dust Torture and featured The Curtain > Waste, a dramatic sequence of Loving Cup > What’s The Use? and Wading In The Velvet Sea > Farmhouse, and a hot Taste.  The mostly non-stop set II began with the first Peaches en Regalia in more than two years, followed by an AC/DC Bag for the ages.  This Bag was a tour de force of multi-modal improvisation culminating in a psychedelic freakout so far Out that swirling vacuum ambiance was the only way to wrap it.  The Boise Bag spilled over into a standout Gumbo with a slow funk Another One Bites The Dust jam that cemented Boise’s snooze-you-lose status.  A frenetic Down With Disease > Frankenstein (with a nod to Pink Floyd) capped the set.  The encore was Simple with a live fade-out that gave the band time to move downstage for an A cappella Hello My Baby to close out a magical night at BSU.Check out the Phish.net setlist below:Setlist: Phish at Boise State University, Boise, ID – 9/14/99Set 1: Chalk Dust Torture, The Sloth, The Curtain > Waste, Loving Cup > What’s the Use?, Wading in the Velvet Sea > Farmhouse, Nellie Kane, Taste, Rocky TopSet 2: Peaches en Regalia > AC/DC Bag[1] > Gumbo, Down with Disease > Frankenstein[2]Encore: Simple, Hello My Baby[1] Trey on keys and Fish on vacuum for part of the jam.[2] Fish on vacuumNotes: Peaches was played for the first time since February 28, 1997 (162 shows). This long AC/DC Bag featured Trey on keys and Fish on vacuum for part of the jam. Gumbo included an Another One Bites the Dust jam. Fish again grabbed the vacuum for Frankenstein and quoted One of These Days (Pink Floyd).last_img read more

John Oliver Jokes About Phish Fans On “Last Week Tonight”

first_imgJohn Oliver recently ran a segment on his popular HBO show Last Week Tonight, talking about the ongoing problem of segregation in schools. Somehow, Oliver turned the corner from talking about school funding to Phish fans, saying “funding tends to follow white people around the way white people follow the band Phish around.”He then joked on the Phish mentality, putting on an affected character voice while saying “it’s a different show every time, man.” He must have gotten the tip from fellow former Daily Show correspondent Stephen Colbert, a known Phish fan who occasionally pokes fun at the Vermont band.Watch the full clip video below, with the Phish joke coming in at around the 6:30 minute mark.[H/T JamBase]last_img read more

Funk Fest Punta Gorda Offers Sunny Skies And Smoking Jams

first_imgFunk rockers The Fritz call Asheville, North Carolina home ,and the artistic spirit of that city is very evident in the music they make. While Jamar Woods fronts the band with his vocals and keys he has plenty of help from a tight rhythm section and monster bass lines laid down by Jake O’ Connor. Check out the heart and soul they bring to the stage in the clip below. The two day event saw Voodoo Visionary taking double duty. With sets on Friday and Saturday, fans got a chance to really check out the Atlanta based jam-funk artists, and the band was eager to show what they could do. Guitarist Mike Wilson showed impressive chops while drummer Mac Schmitz handled the varying styles being juggled with deceptive ease. Watch them win some new fans with this tune from their Friday set: To close out the first night of Funk Fest Punta Gorda, Denver’s The Motet were brought in to show Southern funk lovers how things are down out west. Human spark plug Lyle Divinsky pinwheeled around the stage pumping up the energy. Garrett Sayers and Dave Watts demonstrated the proper procedures for getting the funk down and dirty. Guitarist Ryan Jalbert wound his crisp lines in and out of the rhythm and the horn bursts like a daredevil riding through a musical minefield.The crowd reaction to The Motet’s day ending jams showed full well just how stellar Colorado’s funk band of choice can be when the stage is cleared for them. Check out some of their fiery fun below.Saturday’s Funk Fest Punta Gorda line up started off with New Orleans sons Naughty Professor, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad and a second helping of Voodoo Visionary before getting a bit rockier in the early afternoon. Beloved Dave Matthews sideman Tim Reynolds stepped up to the plate on the main stage, and knocked it out of the park. Reynolds only has one setting; full speed ahead.With his partners Mick Vaughn on bass and Dan Martier behind the drum kit, Reynolds delivered song after song of tight, aggressive funk-tinged rock that got the crowd on their feet and cheering. Check out their rendition of the Booker T & The MGs classic “Hip Hug-Her” below. Florida’s Funk Fest Punta Gorda was the perfect place to get the festival season off to as early a start as possible. Promoters mixed national acts like Dumpstaphunk, The Motet, Tim Reynolds and perennial festival faves Here Come The Mummies with regional talent like The Fritz, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Voodoo Visionary and more to give music fans plenty of reasons to shake their booties. With daytime temperatures in the 80’s, music fans and bands were able to enjoy some hot tunes and fun in the sun.Funk Fest was born out of civic pride. When organizers first conceived of the idea of hosting a fest, the thought was born out of love for Punta Gorda and the beaches, boating and fun on the Gasparilla Sound Harbor. With picturesque sunsets and a laid back Florida vibe, the town is rich in both style and charity, both strongly represented at Funk Fest 8.Organizers converted an empty city block into a two stage festival grounds, surrounded by palm trees, the harbor, and the beautiful downtown waterfront district. As soon as the gates opened, the fans streamed in to find food trucks, art for sale, and funk to fill their hearts and move their feet. If you are looking to throw a funk festival and you need bands then the first place you should look is America’s funkiest city, New Orleans. Joining a few of their fellow Crescent City friends on the Punta Gorda stages was Big Sam himself, alongside his band the Funky Nation. Seizo Shibayama practically set his fret board on fire with his high speed guitar strumming and Drew “Da Phessah” Baham provided plenty of direct support to the man out front, Big Sam. Check out Sam’s dance moves and trombone mastery on the raging clip below.Ever since Here Come The Mummies blew the crowd away at Funk Fest 2, they have been party mainstays, and it was clear that the fans were hyped to see their return engagement. The crowds packed in as close as possible to catch a glimpse of the mystery shrouded funk band from beyond the grave. Mixing grind house horror with genuinely catchy funk tunes is an inspired move and the musicians behind the make up lean into the act with all they have.At a Mummies show, choreographed dance moves and t-shirt cannons share time with uptempo tunes and comical lyrics. Here Come The Mummies embrace the theatrical fringes often explored by bands like P-Funk and KISS to a truly crowd pleasing, though less provocative, end. Watch their antics as they entertain and try to enlighten the crowd in the 12 minute clip below.After the second helping of The Motet on the Funk stage it was time to close out the big stage in style with the last big New Orleans heavyweight band of the day, Dumpstaphunk. Ivan Neville tickled the ivories next to his nephew Ian on guitar, the triple threat Tony Hall on guitar, bass and vocals, Alvin Ford Jr. on drums, and the incomparable Nick Daniels III on bass alone are enough to lay any party to waste on a given night.Luckily for the Punta Gorda crowd Dumpstaphunk was in the mood to kick things up a notch, and brought out the Naughty Professor Horns to help bring the fest home right. Mixing songs like their most recent single “Justice” with Dumpsta classics and even a cover or two, Dumpstaphunk proved to be the perfect choice for closing out the days music.With the perky horn accents sharpening the highs and Daniels providing insanely deep lows Dumpstaphunk had the most musically wide open set of the weekend. and the crowd seemed shell shocked by the funk bombs that had been dropped.Check out the funky take on Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” that Dumpstaphunk and their guests delivered to the lucky Funk Fest fans below:Dumpstaphunk (with the Naughty Professor horns)When the lights came on to help folks find their way either home or to the special Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad late night set, the shell shocked expressions quickly turned to smiles. Fans wandered in all directions, some exiting to the many bars and restaurants that surrounded the downtown venue, while some just relaxed and watched the waves lap on the shore in the moonlight. It is hard to image a more beautiful metropolitan backdrop than Punta Gorda, and it is easy to see why so many fans who come for the first time become fans for life.For fans of the Florida funk, don’t miss Lettuce and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead at the upcoming Fool’s Pardise in St. Augustine, FL on March 31 & April 1. They’ll be playing alongside The Motet, The Floozies, The Main Squeeze, Organ Freeman, and Oteil Burbridge & Antwaun Stanley as artists-at-large. Find out more information here.last_img read more
