Wow, what an interesting thread about a bunch of shitty jam bands. Disco biscuits are awful.

Above the Waves

10/21/00 Helicopters

Crickets/Very Moon Funk/Crickets

ending of a "Caterpillar" jam

Crickets 7-6-03

Astronaut- 10.29.10 - Hulaween

Rock Candy / Tricycle/ Orch Theme

'Digital Buddha' (inverted)

Home Again - 5/29/10

Aceetobee Jam / Basis for a Day / 42

Munchkin Invasion (end)

quote:

The Disco Biscuits are the epitome of a jam band. Each time they play a song, it has a completely different jam than the time they played it before. No cookie cutter nonsense at all. They play into and out of different songs and you never know what kind of setlist you're going to get.
And this is why Tahoetweezer made me realize how much I loathe 3.0. Because very rarely does Phish actually leave that arena-rock, cookie-cutting comfort zone and jam out and improv. on stage. The one time they do we have to hear about it every day for months and Jam ON has to play it 3 times a day. Because Phish, for the first time in forever, did what bands like the Disco Biscuits do every time they get on stage. And they only did it for one song. The Biscuits shows are full of teases, fakeouts, segues, and inverted jams. People get sick of paying to hear the same 5 minute long Bouncing Around the Room, Cavern, Chalkdust, Character Zero, Fee, Golgi, Prince Caspian, Sample in a Jar, Sparkle, Suzy, Tweezer Reprise, Wilson, etc. Think about everything you love about jazz; improv., tangents, vocal-less story telling, surprises, etc. and realize that you won't find that in most Phish shows and you'll find it at every Disco Biscuits show. No song is played the same way twice and every show has a different vibe/mood. If I hear another Possum I'm going on a shooting spree.

Jam bands are my favorite type of music but my god every fricking thread on here about one just turns into an unbearable pissing match.

I thought this wasn't going to turn into a Bisco vs. Phish thread, but oh well. I like Bisco, but consider Phish to be on a total different level.

You brought up some good points. However endless improvisation doesn't necessarily equate to good music. I mean how many marathon Barber solos and 4/4 beats can one endure for three hours? I love jazz, too. It is one of my favorite genres. But there is a ton of shitty jazz out there with the musicians smacked out of their minds.

Although Phish's overall legacy is probably based off Trey's display of virtuoso skills in the '90s, one of their biggest strengths is for the entire band to lock in to become a four-headed monster. That's why fall 1997 is so epic, the entire band is just connected as a groove machine. Mike's bass playing became as elite as the rest of the band at their respective instrument. No era of the Disco Biscuits (and in my opinion any other band except maybe the Dead during May '77) can hold a candle to what Phish was doing from 1993-2000. That stretch of live music was impeccable.

As far as hating on 3.0 for not jamming as much, will the Biscuits still going on deep improvisational explorations when they are 50 years old? Let's be honest- Phish being sober certainly plays a role in their lack of spacy jams these days. Unless Brownie keeps eating drugs like Dave Schools does McDonalds I don't see Bisco having epic jams at that stage in their career.

10 hours worth

No. They're burning the candle at both ends. I guess that's why their shows are always about going all out. That's irrelevant to Phish's lack of jams now. Phish is mailing it in.

Without the Dead part I can agree to that. That Phish is gone though.

Again, I concur. They're having problems now with personalities and drugs. I don't see them taking it to new levels when they're 50; I doubt they'll even be able to mail it in.

This x1000. You only understand if you've seen multiple shows of each different kind of jam band. The Bisco setlists are by far the most creative. Lets compare Phish Dick's set lists to one of the camp bisco show since those are the best of both bands

Set 1: Ghost, NICU meh, Icculus meh, Heavy Things meh, Theme from the Bottom, Esther meh, The Moma Dance meh, Ocelot meh, Stash meh, Lawn Boy meh, Limb By Limb meh, Easy To Slip meh

Set 2: Punch You in the Eye meh, Sand, Say Something meh, Walls of the Cave meh, The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony meh, Harry Hood > Silent in the Morning, Twist meh, Slave to the Traffic Light

Encore: Oh! Sweet Nuthin' meh, Meatstick

Pretty meh cookie cutter right

Camp Bisco Setlist

Set 1: Frog Legs, Svenghali, Magellan > Strobelights and Martinis1 > Magellan2, Spy

Set 2: M.E.M.P.H.I.S.1 > Floes > Story Of The World > Rock Candy > Tricycle > Orch Theme > Story Of The World

Set 3: Run Like Hell > Little Shimmy In A Conga Line3 > Mindless Dribble4 > Munchkin Invasion > Crickets5 > Run Like Hell

Encore: Jamillia > Tempest > Munchkin Invasion

2- with "Stir It Up" (Bob Marley)jam
1- unfinished
3- inverted
4- dub version
5- middle section only


BOOM. Bisco wins. Now post heady bisco jamz like this thread was intended.

That wasn't the best night of Dick's (the next night was) and Icculus is anything but "meh." That song's placement in Phish lore and the reason they played it that night (because fans paid for a plane to fly a "Read the Book" sign) are fricking awesome.

maybe you should see more bisco shows before you pass judgement based on a shitty tipitinas show. The bisco shows I saw this year were really on a completely different level than Phish 3.0. Shit, I even thought Cheese and Umphreys were on a different level than 3.0.

it equates to a good jam band.

agreed, they are awesome. I definitely think Phish and DB are the two best jam bands out there.

Meh, Disco Biscuits fall tour in 2009 is just as good. Unlike you, I actually witnessed it.

If they are still together, yes. I think the Disco Biscuits are improvising just as much now as now they were in 2002-2005. I doubt all the members are still together at 50 though.

u really need to see more shows. thats all i gotta say

That actually hurts your argument. I can listen to Phish fall 1997 and Bisco fall 2009 with a neutral mindset since I didn't attend shows from either. Of course you are going to prefer Bisco since you were there, with a bunch of friends, most likely not sober I'm sure it was awesome.

From a pure musical viewpoint (discounting all other aspects of shows) the two aren't comparable.
