funkbeard When the Biscuits figure out how to add creative breath in the music, they’ll have answered a very difficult question pertaining to their art.

if only the disco biscuits would breath a bit. the listener becomes captive to whatever state of mind the band is in, and the music has the potential to pull said listener out of the orbit of “truth.”. then listener complains of depression because they’re not in the orbit of their own authentic selves. I’d see a Biscuits show and dance my ass off, but i usually wind up turning them off if listening for my own pleasure.

The thing about Phish is, longer really does equal greater more often than not. Especially in 3.0 where they're much more likely to pull the plug the first time they get bored in a jam.

It's an interesting counterpoint to my other favorite band the Disco Biscuits where the batting average on 35+ minute versions is much lower*

Although to be fair, when it comes to the biscuits I don't quite think of it as a 40 minute version when it's 20min song a> 20 min song b> 20 min song A, and a lot of the most super-sized jams in their past either don't come out of a song (improvised score to Akira nye 99) or come within a song with multiple jam sections held together by composed connective tissue, other songs, other sets, other shows. So is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
