Briefly: Lillywhite to Produce New Phish Album?

With all the rumors goin’ around about the upcoming return of Phish, it’s always tough to differentiate stories that are complete bullshit from those that are based in fact. Our friend Todd at Jamtopia isn’t one to throw up a post if he didn’t believe his source. Todd just shared the details of an e-mail with a rumor that originated from Jon Fishman:

The short version: Phish is definitely reuniting and there will be a new Phish album produced by Steve Lillywhite, who produced Billy Breathes over 12 years ago.

We sure hope Todd’s source is right on this one. In the meantime, be sure to keep your eyes on Jamtopia for the best in live concert videos and rumors.

    Also, nothing new has been “Great” beyond Farmhouse (I do like the song ‘Round Room,’ and versions of new songs appearing on Brooklyn). If Trey has been writing w/ Tom, I hope they have been focusing on Trey’s real life, because that could make for some decent fodder for expression. Tom’s work is artful but abstract, often lacking an obvious significance. Metaphor, truth telling and soul are important components of skilled songwriting. cash&st=nyt

    I’ve loved the tunes for years, but need something deeper from the lyrics.

    My 2 cents.

    I hope Trey’s giant ego doesn’t sabatage them in the medium term.

    Rob, if you are looking for more from the lyrics from Phish then you trully do not understand what the whole “Phish thing” was(is) about.The lyrics are secondary to the music.Some groups use music as a vehicle for words,Phish used words as a vehicle for the music.

    Why do people always say Trey has a massive ego? I’ve been lucky enough to meet him several times, and hang out at the same social functions, and the guy is nothing but humble. He is the farthest thing from an ego maniac anyone could possibly be. The only thing I can think of is his stage persona, which has always been very assertive. That’s just who he is on stage. Seriously, the guy is as humble as they come. I really don’t get the egomaniac label.

    And another thing, in my opinion (which is worth its weight in salt) Round Room is the best studio effort Phish ever made. That album captures their sound better than any other CD they made. Farmhouse was all regurgitated material — everything on there had been in the setlist rotation for at least two years before Farmhouse even came out. In fact, that was a huge factor leading to the initial Hiatus.

    Sorry, I should have just made this all one reply. Dude, Tom’s lyrics are almost 100% metaphorical. How can you miss that?
