Episode 17: Expect the Unexpected, August 93


Listen to Episode 17

In Episode 17, Eric, Scotty, Steve and I explore the explosively creative month of music that was performed in August, 1993. To help bring this unique tour to life, we welcomed Brian Feller from phish.net to share his insights and experiences. Brian hopped on this tour on from 8/6-8/14 and then flew out to Berkeley for the closer on 8/28. This episode features 9 clips from 7 shows that showcase different facets of the band’s creativity: from unrestrained, powerful jamming, emotionally-charged singing and improvised vocal melodies to beautifully executed composed pieces, Phish achieved a state of simultaneous looseness and tightness that stands the test of time.

Thanks for listening. Please join us for Episode 18 on 4/5.

  1. I really enjoyed this episode, great conversation and audio clips. Good to hear from a long time phish concert goer like Bryan, its always fun to hear about days past from someone who was actually there.

  2. Excellent job on both the discussion and musical selections – there are so many incredible moments from that month, and I think you all did a great job of picking moments that are among the best, but not the most obvious.

    Also, thanks a lot for the shoutout – much appreciated.

  3. Great podcast. I’ve tried to find some of these shows for download but haven’t been successful. Where can I find these shows?

  4. Chum,

    You can download most of these shows through “the spreadsheet”


  5. Agree, great and UNIQUE selections! That Runaway Jim is spectacular…that’s the one that blew me away the most. Trey’s tone is perfect on the long sustaining notes, he doesn’t seem to be able to dial in that type of smooth roundness these days and sometimes errs on the side of shrill. I am not a 3.0 naysayer at all, lot’s of great moments from 3.0 as far as I am concerned just my 2 cents :)

    Chum: Here is a link to “the spreadhseet” – Enjoy! http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=p8WKkpP-TKpO1VnQgcff6EQ&gid=7

  6. Thanks for the help. I’ve actually have the link to the Spreadsheet but for some reason some of the shows (93 shows included) are not downloading for me.

    Once the download is finished and I open the file nothing happens. Not sure what I need to do.

  7. Chum,

    Perhaps try with a different browser? Just downloaded 8/16 to make sure it was working on my end and it was fine.

  8. By the way, if you guys weren’t aware, there’s a video on Youtube of the Jim (and a bunch more of that show): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pUdMWi19gg

  9. I just needed the RAR expander. Thanks for pointing that out Tanya. Listening to the Murat Gin now. Y’all are right, nothing like Phish back then. It’s a 4 piece minded stream of consciousness improvisation at it’s finest.

    I wish I could go back see some of these shows.

  10. Fantastic show, everyone. :thumbup:

    Originally, Bathtub was why I traded for the 8/13 tape, but that Mike’s > Lawnboy is why I keep listening to the show. It is so rare to find live music that is that alive.

  11. Impressive episode. Thoughts:

    1) Well-devised mixture of clips and analysis, but that is frequently the case.

    2) Great topic selection, as key points in Phishstory are eye-opening and entertaining.

    3) That “Antelope” clip was brutal. Either I hadn’t had enough coffee yet, or our tastes just differ, but yikes.

    4) Nicely combatted, though, as Tanya mentioned, with that “Ginseng” follow-up.

    5) The episode as a whole was pretty well-done, and I would call it that even without Brian. His presence was just an added bonus.

    6) The “YEM” was siiiiiiiick, as alluded to, but tainted via a Skype call, and some other rumblings, but appreciated, nonetheless.

    7) Still no love on the outtro fades? That “Grace” was about to close out the ‘cast with a GW-HR in the bottom of the ninth, and it was cut cold before the finale, like, well, I dunno. Something less than savory.

    Good stuff all around, though. Already looking forward to next week.


  12. Dudes,

    Best episode yet. Really…maybe I’m a huge geek but I look forward to this every week. I love listening to people talk so passionately about my favorite band and because I’m a relative newb…been listening to phish since 2000 right before their first hiatus…getting hipped to shows I wasn’t aware of is fucking awesome. Seriously. can’t wait for the next one.

  13. 16a18a351fdThank you for your whole work on this web page. My mother rellay likes going through investigation and it’s easy to understand why. Most people learn all concerning the compelling tactic you give worthwhile items via the web blog and therefore increase response from other individuals about this situation then our favorite princess is always studying a lot of things. Take advantage of the rest of the year. You’re the one performing a dazzling job. 18d
