Travel Back In Time And Watch A Phish House Party, Performed On This Day In 1987

first_imgThe Phish that we know and love today got their start in 1985, when Page McConnell joined members Trey Anastasio, Mike Gordon, Jon Fishman and guitarist Jeff Holdsworth. From their earliest days at the University of Vermont, the group embraced the psychedelic improvisational culture that had been spawned by the Grateful Dead, taking that mentality in their own direction with elements of jazz, funk, and more.Compared to shows throughout the 90’s and beyond, the early days of Phish are poorly documented. None of the band’s followers in Burlington suspected their meteoric rise in the jam subculture, which makes this 1987 video footage all the more impressive. Filmed at what is believed to be a graduation party for Mike Gordon, the show performed on May 20th, 1987 was filmed in the backyard of friend Eric Larson’s house, capturing the group with long hair and tie-dyed backdrops.The show itself is most likely incomplete, but features some tunes that are still in the band’s rotation: “Wilson,” “Run Like An Antelope,” “Golgi Apparatus,” “Possum,” “Harry Hood,” “You Enjoy Myself,” and “Alumni Blues,” the latter of which featured members of The Joneses and Mental Floss, two bands that most likely performed at the party ahead of Phish. The video was widely circulated during the band’s formative years, introducing new fans to some setlist staples.So sit back and enjoy watching this very early Phish show, and who knows, maybe they’ll write a song called “Fuego” in another 27 years after this was filmed…Setlist: Phish at The Ranch, South Burlington, VT – 5/20/87Set 1: Wilson / Run Like an Antelope, Golgi Apparatus / Back Porch Boogie Blues / Lushington / Possum, Harry Hood, You Enjoy Myself, Alumni Blueslast_img read more

I went back to Mikasa to negotiate a deal for Nigeria volleyball clubs, schools, military, states in order to subsidise the amount. “Upon negotiation, the price of both MVA200 and VLS300 beach balls came to N16,000.’’ He said that the price of practice balls MVA300 is N14, 000. He said: “This MVA300 is a special order from Japan. It will be manufactured for us specifically to meet our outdoor/indoor use to be more durable. “We have completed the first phase. The balls have been ordered in bulk from Mikasa and have been delivered to clubs and owners.” He, however, commended the President of Nigeria Volleyball Federation, Musa Nimrod, for changing the face of volleyball within the space of two years pledging to support the federation in her activities.Tags: Babatunde OmisoreEmmanuel JattoNigeria Volleyball Federationlast_img
