Analysis: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Enjoy The Funk [SmoothAtonalSound]

Whether he intended to or not, Trey made a definitive aesthetic statement that night. This was his way of announcing that the funky sound of 1997 was no mere one-off fad, but that it was a paradigm shift in the band’s artistic expression. This is the way Phish will sound from now on. And if you don’t like it, if you think the last good Phish show ever played was 12/31/95, then fuck off, go home, spend your money elsewhere.

Remembrances: The Island Tour Revisited [Phish Thoughts]

Twelve years ago today, Phish wound up The Island Tour in Providence, Rhode Island; arguably the greatest four-night run of the late-90’s. Littered with masterful improvisation that expounded on ideas and musical styles hatched during the game-changing tour of Fall ‘97, Phish upped the ante over these nights, crafting eight sets of that bled with powerful, mystical music that stood apart from anything before or after.
