|Originally Performed By||Phish|
The second track from The Siket Disc documents the rehearsal space meanderings of a sparse guitar and bass rhythm through its metamorphism to a smooth cerebral groove inhabiting the ethers somewhere between “Manteca” and “Crosseyed and Painless.” “The Name Is Slick” thereby captures the essence of the state of Phish improvisation circa 2000 and beyond. Although the song has not been performed live to date, the essence of “The Name Is Slick” has permeated many of the exploratory on-stage moments.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
