Phish.net 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.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
Brilliant work by Phish once again. It was all so intense just so many things happening all at once, the yelled declaration style lyrics, the repetition of it all, the strange I mean weird stupidly strange strange song arrangements, that’s what’s really got me brimming and totally into these songs. Trey is a good arranger. I think arrangements that really pull the song into heavy-duty territory for me it’s Pete Townsend and stuff like Tommy or wow Quadrophenia; Peter Buck of R.E.M. is also an amazing arranger. But my god man, Trey and Co. what have y’all done!? I couldn’t tell what was a verse, or prechorus, or chorus, or bridge, or vamp, or coda or what. I’m like “this is the jam part” and then there’s like three more parts and it’s 16 minutes long and is it all song, or planned jam section, or what?! Like how Fuego used to be, with an “ending” that is and is not always played, the sections of the song not adhered to. But Space Soldier songs are wayyyyyy better than that to me, better put together, better arrangements. It’s so forward and futuristic to me.
It’s space music from year 40?? whenever!!! Jelly of everyone that got to be there! It made staying up till super late worth every cup of coffee that night. Can’t wait to rewatch it I need time and the ability to turn it up really loud.
