“You think we’re allowed to suggest covers?”

“I don’t know, man. We only got so much time and so many shows, y’know?”

“Yeah, sure, right.”

“Aw, fuck, man: did you teach Bobby how Tweezer goes?”

“Well, they played Stander on the Mountain when you were in the band.”

“Poorly. They played it poorly. And that was 1992 in Wisconsin. Stakes were a bit lower.”

“You think maybe there’s a more appropriate Phish song to cover?”

“Uh, sure. Yeah. Yes.”

“You don’t know any of our songs.”

“I most certainly do.”

“Name one.”

“Well, there’s the one that’s all “boing-y” sounding.”

“That’s all of them. Name one Phish song, Bruce.”

“The werewolf song.”

“I’m gonna take a little break.”


  1. Then there’s that one about a marsupial policeman- good stuff.

  2. Listening to Phish made me realize how important Hunter was to the Dead. Christ on high, they need a professional lyricist.

  3. Do they? Really? Did he write “Tweezer”? ’cause that’s some bullshit right there.
