MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 271

Welcome to the 271st edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the last and most difficult of April. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of the four mystery clips – these clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the answer. Each person gets one guess – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

HANG ON TO YOURSELF

Like “Moonage Daydream” (for which it was originally released as a B-Side), “Hang On to Yourself” was originally released by Arnold Corns. Corns (portrayed by fashion designer Freddie Buretti), mostly unknown to all but the biggest Bowie fanatics, was effectively the demo version of Ziggy Stardust. Bowie took some time making his idea of a fictional rock star a reality and Arnold Corns was his first draft, so to speak. However, Bowie soon realized that no one could play the role better than him and The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars was born....

MORE

It’s the second night of the 2016 Halloween Run in Vegas. My wingsuit feels good, ’cause it feels good, and Trey eases us into “More.” I’ve been waiting for this one. After hearing it on Big Boat, a lot of us are eager to witness it live....

MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 270

Welcome to the 270th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the penultimate MJM of April. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of all three mystery clips – these clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the correct answer. Each person gets one guess – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Note: The Championship for the Mockingbird Mystery Jam Madness Tournament will start next Tuesday, April 25th, to give the finalists a breather before the last puzzle and accommodate some tough upcoming schedules. Stay tuned...

Hint: Difficult clips, easy theme. It'll be a miracle if this one holds up.

Answer:
Pete: "Difficult clips, easy theme. It'll be a miracle if this one holds up."
MJMers: "Hmmm, I'm thinking easy -> Easy Rider -> Jack Nicholson -> Jumpin' Jack Flash -> 6/27/10 @ MPP -> MPP shows?"
Pete: "No tricks, nothing to read into. It's just a really easy / obvious theme – one of the first that folks check."
MJMers: "Miracle -> Lake Placer -> Hockey -> Shows where Trey wore a Flyers jersey?"
Pete: "There are no tricks here! The theme is extremely obvious."
MJMers: "Oh, duh! Tricks -> Trick or Treat -> Halloween -> Vegas -> Dancers -> Carmelo Anthony -> Madison Square Garden -> Madison -> Wisconsin -> Green Bay Packers -> Football -> Running Back -> Runnin' with the Devil -> 8/6/98 -> Lakewood -> Same theme as last week?"
Pete: "..."
@andrewrose: "You'd think it would be something from 4/17. But it's not."
@runlikecarini: "4/17/94 Wolfman's Brother, 4/17/04 Pebbles and Marbles, 4/17/99 (Days Between ->) Jam"
Pete: "Welcome to the Emeritus Club, My Friend My Friend!"
MJMers: "MYFE?"

Yep, all clips came from shows played the same day MJM270 dropped – on April 17th – five years apart from one another in '94, '99, and '04, with the '99 show being a Phil and Friends show featuring Page and Trey. If you've never heard that three night run, please check it out now, as it is essential listening for fans of Phish and the Grateful Dead. In fact, the video recently surfaced from all three nights: 4/15/99, 4/16/99, 4/17/99 (time-stamped to this week's clip for your delight). Congrats @runlikecarini – well deserved win and we've got a dozen MJM Emeriti (and I believe you're the youngest!). Next week: Monday – MJM271; Tuesday – MMJM Championship Round!

MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 269

Welcome to the 269th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the second and second-easiest of April. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of both mystery clips – these clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the correct answer. Each person gets one guess – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Answer: Congrats to @mickeyjoe86, who may or may not have gotten a little help from his friends this week in quickly winning this week's MJM, his third overall. For whatever reason, the three win mark seems to be the point where folks make their push towards MJM legendary status, or fizzle out and check in only infrequently – I'm guessing this isn't the last 'W' for @mickeyjoe86 though. After @PhreePhish flipped his cards over only to reveal the second-best hand, @mickeyjoe86 went all in on the Lakewood theme and correctly identified the 6/24/00 Tweezer and the 7/31/15 KDF, two of the finest jams from their respective years. Check them out, check out MJM270 on Monday, and keep your eyes peeled and nipples sliced for the final round of the MMJM tournament, beginning on April 25th.

MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 268

ATTENTION: This is the first week where we'll play by a new rule: only folks who have never won an MJM are allowed to answer before the hint (and every first MJM of the month henceforth). If you have previously won an MJM and you'd like to submit a guess before the hint, you may do so by PMing me – if no one has answered correctly by the time I'm ready to post the hint, the first correct answer submitted by PM will be awarded the win.

Welcome to the 268th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the first and easiest of April. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of the mystery clip. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Update: I received a correct answer 29 minutes in from a previous MJM winner via PM – no need for other previous winners to PM their answers. Folks who haven't won the MJM before: the clock is ticking!

Answer: Congrats to @Bob_Loblaw, who, after dozens of wild guesses over the years, identified this week's 10/24/14 DWD – while I'd love to make a wise crack about "even a broken clock is right twice a day," considering I met the man in person at the same venue 9 months later, and given how quickly he won this week's MJM, I'm guessing he was at that fantastic Fall '14 Forum show too and knows that jam by heart. See you Monday for MJM269!

MYSTERY JAM MONDAY PART 267

Welcome to the 267th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the final and presumably most difficult of March. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of the four mystery clips - these clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the answer. Each person gets one guess – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!

Hint:

Answer: Major league congratulations to @dbertsch, who hit an out-of-the-park, grand slam homer in the bottom of the 9th inning, off a tough knuckleball, to win his 7th and final MJM contest. @dbertsch now joins that super elite club of retired MJM winners, as only its 11th member. Welcome to the Pantheon of MJM Emeriti. As he correctly noted, this week's tracks were all covers, and included the Drowned from 7/17/13, Skin It Back from 2/20/88, Rock & Roll from 9/17/00, and the awesome Have Mercy from 10/20/10. This last clip is part of an excellent SOAM > Have Mercy > Piper > SOAM from the Guyutica show. Fans seemed to have forgotten about this show, which really demonstrated that Phish was back in good form. So check it out, if it's been awhile. Congrats again to @dbertsch. Next week, @ucpete will be back, throwing a nice, underhanded, slow-and-over-the-plate softball for the first (and easiest) MJM of April.

MISS YOU

As Trey detailed in the Wall Street Journal article about the making of Big Boat, the Phish song “Miss You” is about his dearly departed sister Kristy. It is therefore a deeply personal piece for him, a song that he hopes will make us all reflect on our own lives and thereby allow it to serve as a universal connection between each of us. At this point in our lives, each of us has likely experienced the loss of a loved one whether it be through their death or simply the demise of the relationship. We all miss someone or something. We can relate. ...

SUFFRAGETTE CITY

Like most really memorable popular music songs, David Bowie’s “Suffragette City” is obviously a fast and loose treatise upon either one or both of the other two apices of the Sex, Drugs, and Rock-n Roll holy trinity upon which the art form is based. Considering the Thin White Duke’s known openness to both male and female lovers, most listeners will likely lean towards the sexual interpretation. However, with the reference to Henry (AKA Hank or heroin) getting his lean on, the high-rev pace of the song, and Bowie’s own admission that he was more into fast drugs; the lyrics can just as easily be ascribed to the rush of a good stimulant kicking into overdrive.  Either way, Ziggy has no time for Henry because he is ready for more “Wham Bam, Thank you Ma’am!” with his special lady friend....
