Well, I’m very sad to report that Phish has decided to call it quits. This is sad, but also kind of exciting. Imagine what will happen when the guys unlink themselves from the Phish chains and start expanding into ever wider territory. On the other hand, what will become of Jennifer Dances and other Phish rarities? Are they to die a lonely death? What will be the last song? A predictable YEM, or maybe something crazy random, like, say Lushington? What if it was something middle ground, like Squirming Coil?

With the close of the tour, I think, will be demise of’s phish content. From that point on out, I think ft will become my personal site, and the phish stuff will just have to slowly fade away. There are better sites for that. Sigh.


  1. … that the last song would be “The Curtain With …”(1), and that they would have to stop the song a couple of measures into the jam, and start over so they could play it in the RIGHT KEY?!?!

    It was the saddest thing I’ve ever seen.

    And yes, I realize you wrote this 4 years ago, but I’m curious as to how you felt about that.


    (1)Don’t get me wrong, it’s an awesome song, and I understand the history, but as their!?!

  2. No, but I can’t say it was a bad choice. I love The Curtain (With) – I actually really miss the original slow Rift – and I think it’s a fitting closer. It has a bit of a regal outro jam. Of course, it does count as an “unexpected” choice, but certainly not as random as “Lushington” or something like “Dear Mrs. Reagan.”
