|Originally Performed By||Phish|
|Vocals||Sofi Dillof; unidentified male vocalist|
Like it's mysterious brother “I’ve Turned Bad,” “Nowhere Fast” is one of the few unidentified songs in the Phish pantheon, although surely some folks out there know the tune. Basically a hard-core punk effort with insult-lyrics shouted in a steady stream by Sofi Dillof and an unknown friend, the tune was only performed once, at The Front on 5/9/89. This was also the Junta release party, so it’s not surprising that a little bit of craziness would appear in the setlist. Though there is a Meatloaf song of the same name, this one is definitely something else, and if you have some clues as to its identity, don’t hesitate to contact us.
