Episode 093: Columbia Funky Bitch


In Episode 093 we discuss the wild and experimental jam off Funky Bitch on November 22, 1994 from Columbia, MO. Deep in the heart of November 1994, the band leapt off a Jon Fishman mistake into a 25 minute jam that helped to define the larger goals of the era. 

Songs featured in this episode are:

Mosses: “TV Sun”

Tortoise: “TNT”

Steve Mason: “Lonely”

In addition, we discuss two new 2020 records we highly recommend: Matt Lajoie: “Everlasting Spring” and Steven Malkmus: “Traditional Techniques”

Did you know that music can accelerate child brain development and strengthen intellectual, emotional, and motor skills, as well as overall literacy? Bringing music into the classroom can help kids explore the mind-body connection and become comfortable with self-expression. Sadly, many children’s music programs are lacking in the resources they need to let kids explore this creative space. That’s why Osiris is happy to partner with The Mockingbird Foundation.

Founded in 1996, The Mockingbird Foundation is a volunteer-run non-profit organization dedicated to improving access to music education for America’s youth. Each year, the Foundation awards grants to dozens of music education programs, and funds those grants through a combination of fundraising, publishing, and the curation of Phish.net, one of the earliest Internet fan communities.

Mockingbird is entirely volunteer, with no staff, no salaries, and no office — so every dollar really does make a difference in providing children’s music programs with the staffing, instruments, and support they need. The foundation gives over 100–150,000 dollars every year in grants.
