like a nerdy garage band that come up with songs on a whim. Jimmy Buffet meets a NY subway performer.


sorry, not a big phish fan.

Phish a really talented band. If anyone would like some cds, check out my bootleg page www.phishhook.com/lists/feelthefunk420
and see if anything catches your eye.

You must be thinking of Blink 182 or 311. Many Phish songs are complex compositions. Check out You Enjoy Myself or Reba or anything of off The Man who Stepped into Yesterday.

hey, you like whatever you like. I just don't think they're talented, a lot of their songs sound like it could've been written by a grade school teacher. and it's not like I don't appreciate complex compositions, I've been a long time fan of the Flaming lips, sonic youth, Radiohead, etc.

My roomates in college were all into phish so I heard A LOT of it, it was a personal hell for me.

You just displayed your lack of knowledge about music. I don't expect everyone to get phish. Thats why they have bands like DMB and Radio Head. For you non-music folk.

In my experience people like you are close minded about types of music because of social conditioning rather than "taste".

Nuggets has it right. These are 4 guys who are profesionally trained musicians. I mean, Page could be playing concertos for Gods sake. People dont like Phish because they are afraid of liking something that isnt mainstream, afraid of liking what others dont. Personally, I like good musicians, not some stupid punks who play 3 power chords on thier guitars and are praised as revolutionary. Dont get me wrong, some of Phish's stuff is def. got weak lyrics. But listen to the music! Reba, YEM, Tweezer, Ghost, Fluffhead. Phish is sick! Like what you like, not what others tell you to like.

bluemeanie......phish are the finest group of musicians on the planet.......and they sure do know how to throw really great hippie festivals too!~

Dude i dont think they have ever played in Australia.?

They are just the most super-cool musical-people on the planet.

Always go for their newest studio album, or anything live.

Peace

I saw then in Camden for the first time recently, being largely unfamiliar with their music but thought, what the hell, it should be fun. It's really kind of hard to describe, and I've heard plenty, really pretty amazing, and probably much more greatly appreciated live, I'd think.
NuggetsTheShaker, you're obviously a fan, what's their background, they seem to incorporate a bunch of influences in there, some pretty intricate stuff.

I also recommend you seek out a copy of the 8/03/03 show and listen to the Ghost.  40 minutes of some of the phunkiest phish I've heard.  Then imagine being there in the middle of 70,000 people, with several thousand glowsticks flying through the air, after eating mushrooms for dinner.  :eek:  I have to go change my pants now.

One Love,
Stu

(The fact I was tripping gives no credibility to the argument "dood, phish sux, u have to b on drugs to like that poop." I love going to Phish shows absolutely sober--no drugs, alcohol, or even weed--but I splurged because after all, it was IT man!)

The first time ---- before I heard the ,,,, in
the time before I heard them, I expected they'd
sort of sound like the Grateful Dead but, like,
different, more clean cut. That's how I imagined
it. ---- Then I heard it and it sounded like MOR
rock, AM radio rock--- like Bread or the Eagles
or something. I was kind of shocked by how bad it
was! Honestly. 'How could so many people like this
bad thing?' I can see a bit of things-you-could-like
in most things but it was really horrible.

I heard a live mp3 after that and it sounded about
the same except they were always playing really
slow guitar solos and being cute.

Quote:

What Does Phish Sound Like?

According to bassist Mike Gordon, Phish plays "bluegrass, Latin, rock, funk, classical, jazz, calypso, hard-core, and Broadway." Sometimes these styles are employed individually, other times they are fused together. Phish's music is characterized by simple lyrics, sophisticated instrumentals, extensive musical communication, and extended improvisation. Some of Phish's songs conform to conventional concepts of popular music, other songs serve as frameworks for improvisation.




That sums it up pretty good.

You Enjoy Myself is my FAVORITE tune, esp off of "a live one"
Trey is a Mean guitar player, as is everyone else in the band to their respective instruments, but they write very complex material, but somehow make it goofy... maybe it's the lyrics? (of which they have someone else write for them)

Phish are shit. and for the record I listen to almost nothing mainstream. People just like them because they can get drugs at their shows. It's pathetic how losers try to hang on to that 70s hippy bullshit. Go hug a tree and mourn the death of Jerry Garcia you fucking losers. People just hang on to the whole hippie "movement" to give them an excuse to do drugs and be a jobless loser.

Nothing personal.
