Historian: Mockingbird Staff

“Fish Bass,” the fourth track on The Siket Disc, seems less of a song than a series of effects. At just over a minute in length, the song conjures images of an earthquake rolling through a room full of rickety furniture. The title of the song would seem to suggest that one Johnny B. Fishman is responsible for the bass rumblings at the beginning of the song. Until Phish decides to play the song live, though, that remains nothing more than an educated guess.
