Phish performed a one-time cover of this catchy Pavement tune from the band’s excellent Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain album, leaving many fans scratching their heads. Well, aside from this having been performed amidst a tour of a number of one-time covers, it seems that Trey is – you guessed it – a huge Pavement fan. Indeed, Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain was among the albums Phish offered as a possible cover for Festival 8, before eventually being killed off.
