TREY: This next song is one written by one of our favorite bands, Sneeze Blood Eyeball, ladies and gentlemen. [Music begins] No, really, though. This next one is really important to us, and I honestly hope that it’ll be equally important to all of you. This next song is a story of a great, great man. It’s the story of the great, ancient philosopher Icculus, as you all probably know, especially any of you who are lucky enough to run across the readings of the great Icculus in your times. Anyway, it was only a short period of time ago that we, as a band, began to study the writings of the great Icculus, and were so moved, so deeply moved, by his fascinating words, that we wrote this song... [Song continues] April Fools!
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 just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
