Episode 103: Lexington Gin

EP103 16×9

In Episode 103 we discuss the wide-ranging, forward-thinking, infectious take on Bathtub Gin from the University of Kentucky on November 7, 1996. One week removed from their performance of the Talking Heads Remain In Light, Phish was already applying the lessons of the album to one of their longest-serving jam vehicles. The hints of 1997’s reinvention are hard to avoid now as nearly every BIG jam over the next four weeks would further push the band towards their Linear Musical Communication rebirth.

One quick note, we recorded this episode before the larger push to change the name of the Kentucky Wildcats’ arena from Rupp Arena. It’s clear in research that Adolph Rupp was a racist and that his name no longer deserves to grace the basketball arena. We support the faculty at the University of Kentucky pushing to change the name. 

Songs featured in this episode are:

Neil Young: “Transformer Man”

Stevie Wonder: “Golden Lady”

My Bloody Valentine: “(When You Wake) You’re Still In A Dream”

Hum: “In The Den”
