This song – originally its own entity – joined the full version of “Fluffhead” for that song’s final-draft debut on 9/27/87. Prior to then (and a few times after) it had shown up from time to time in a jammed-out version that usually lasted for about five minutes or so. The bizarre lyrics were chosen for their sound rather than their meaning, indicative of many early Phish compositions. Some typically cockeyed pre-”Fluffhead” versions of “Clod” can be surmised by obtaining 12/6/86, 5/11/87, 8/21/87, 2/7/88, and a single, post-”Fluffhead” appearance on 11/10/89.
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 $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
