You really think Fuck Your Face was the ultimate bust out?
What would you call it?  It hasn't been played since 87.  I'd say that's pretty fucking huge.  What would be bigger to you? 
Can we talk about the Dead?  I'd love to talk about the fucking Grateful Dead, for once, can we please discuss the Grateful FUCKING Dead!?!?!?!

Why would they read the LST thread though?  No offense, but they are just same people (me included) cracking retarded inside jokes every time.  It's an awesome way to spend one's night when they aren't at the show, but it's hardly a beacon of knowledge or insight with regards to the actual show.  So to me, it just seems ludicrous to think that has any influence on the band, and why wouldn't they take many of the more well thought out ideas to heart within this board? 

You guys are confusing cause with correlation.


i'm not saying it was DEF this board that caused them to randomly bustout one of the rarest songs in their
catalog.
but i know it's not out of the question & it's absolutely worth discussing even if we had nothing to do with it.
you & i both now there are people on this board that personally know the band & many people in the organization.

it may have been the request poster, it may have been the board, it may have been both, it may have neither.

Played only once before on an unknown date at least 23 years ago . . .


I'd say yes.

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

I'd say yes.

It can't only be about the date since last played.  The quality of, and importance of the song to the band's songbook is more important to me.  I'd put 2/28/03's Destiny Unbound ahead of Fuck Your Face.  FYI McGrupp - I was not at 2/28/03.

Also, the fact that they're making a conscious effort to dust off songs from the wayyyy back catalog kind of diminishes the recent "bust outs" to me.

F#*$ YOUR FACE

Posted 3 days ago by lumpblockclod - 13 comments - Link: http://phi.sh/p3spx
Last night in Charlotte, Phish played the bustout to end all bustouts: "Fuck Your Face" was played for the first time in over 23 years (the last -- and only -- known performance was on 4/29/87 or 1,413 shows ago).  Interestingly, Phish also performed an a cappella version of "Proud Mary" during the "YEM" vocal jam.  "Mary" was the previous longest-gap record holder when it was played on 3/1/03 for the first time since the very first Phish show (12/2/83 or 1,364 shows). Needless to say, excitement is running high for the last two shows of the tour in Alpharetta. Can "Prep School Hippie" or "Punch Me in the Eye" be far behind?

guess i shoulda used the quoting option the first time.  :frustrated:
It's a great day on the interweb, people.

Destiny was played heavily throughout 90-91 though, so there's tons of folks that were seeing them back then that caught it.

This was a song that practically no one had seen before, and even if they had who can remember since the date is totally unconfirmed.

As one of Mike's earlier compositions, I'd say it's historically significant too, and certainly an interesting tune as well.

So all that adds up to a bustout of the highest order in my book.

So according to you, one of their first songs written is less important than one of their more popular songs?

I was worried for a sec there.

And I'm not calling you a w00k, but if you were to suggest that I was the "fun police" because you disagreed with my opinion, I'd tell you to STFU.  Cool?

I see what you're saying, but Destiny Unbound was the song that people thought would never be played again, at least when I started seeing shows... it's not like there were people waiting for the Fuck Your Face bustout.  And while I'm not a fan of Destiny Unbound or Fuck Your Face as songs, I do think Destiny Unbound is a little more interesting.

So according to you, one of their first songs written is less important than one of their more popular songs? 

Yes.  Are you jonesin' to hear Minkin, And So To Bed? or He Ent To The Bog?

If you go through the first 11 pages of the fuck you 7/1 setlist thread... LLama, Roses are Free, Fuck your Face, Vultures, and Lizards were called... prior to 7/1 being played... and they played all those songs in 2 nights... Can see Sophist's point, but it's definitely weird, thats all... 
Control for smilers can't be bought...

"Your answer is silly. What'd do you want the song to do? End world hunger?
It's a fucking Phish song, some of them are very complex compositions, some are not.

This one with its complex vocal arrangement falls right in between.
But that and a hook aren't enough so I'll let Trey know his songs have to start giving out handys." RJ
