Episode 003: Riverport Gin

Welcome back to Beyond The Pond! Hosted by Brian Brinkman and David Goldstein, our goal is to use the music of Phish to introduce you, the listener, to a diverse assortment of music. Through the medium of great Phish jams, we’re going to dive into music history, draw parallels with a wide range of genres, and discuss some of our favorite bands & albums. We hope you dig it! Episode 003 focuses on the 07/29/1998 Bathtub Gin from the Riverport Ampitheatre in Maryland Heights, MO. The show’s opener, this is one of the most popular Phish jams of all time, and one of the best examples of Phish’s foray into Funk music from 1996-1998. Songs selected for this episode are: The Meters: "Live Wire," Orgone: "Sabi," 5ive Style: "Pledge Drive," Thundercat: "Oh Sheit It’s X," and St. Vincent: "Digital Witness." In addition, we discuss two new 2017 albums we highly recommend: Jamiroquai "Automaton," and Ne-Hi "Offers."
