“The day I have been waiting for has finally come!” said Alex Shapiro in MTV.com. Legendary jam band Phish is reuniting for three shows in March. I knew when they “called it quits” in 2004 that they “were destined to play music together again,” and now “the ‘brahphecy’ has been fulfilled.” I couldn’t be any more “psyched!”
They’re probably not doing it for the money, either, said Jed Gottlieb in the Boston Herald online. “Before its four-year hiatus, Phish was the jam genre’s biggest act, grossing more than $175 million from its concerts.” And there’s a chance we may get another album from these guys—“rumor has it that the band recently contacted former U2 producer Steve Lillywhite.”
Wow, great news, said Stuart Heritage in Heckler Spray. Especially for fans of “tedious, formless, mostly improvised songs that go on for three hours longer than the point of normal human endurance.” And good thing March is a ways off—“that’ll give you plenty of time to ditch your job at the law firm and dedicate your life to getting your beard long enough” to put rubber bands in again.
