TREY: Thank you, alright. Well, we’re happy to be here at Bennington College. It’s been a long trip from Gamehendge, which is where we come from. For those of you people who don't know anything about Gamehendge or are seeing us for the first time, this next tune we are going to do is an old Gamehendge chant that we turned into a song. This is written about this great mountain of course in Gamehendge, on top of which lives the great and knowledgeable Icculus, who is the philosopher and author of the Helping Friendly Book.
This next tune we’re gonna do is a tune that was an ancient chant that was sung by two chosen subjects of Gamehendge who yearly, in the pre-Wilson years of Gamehendge, who would go up to the mountain, eat the sacred root, climb down, and go out into this vast green field. They’d trek across this vast grass field until they came in the middle of the field to this enormous black rhombus. They would throw their ropes with the little hooks on them up and they would climb up the Rhombus and get on the Rhombus and sing this chant and sing to the gods of the night sky. It goes, “divided sky, the wind blows high.” So help us out with this one, singing to the night sky out there...
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.
