  6. Just when I thought The Disco Biscuits couldn’t give me any more reasons to hate them, here comes another bag of dicks thinking he’s too cool for fucking school to play.

    What a turd.

  7. Wow Marc…

    About 1999 was when I stopped caring what the Disco Biscuits played…

    Have fun playing your 5000 person festies and shitty ballrooms for the rest of your careers…

  10. Nice Brownstein. You obviously care enough for your band to coattail a paycheck with your Virginia run leading into the Hampton shows. Douche.

  12. “Nice Brownstein. You obviously care enough for your band to coattail a paycheck with your Virginia run leading into the Hampton shows. Douche.”

    hahaha. I like Disco Bisco and all, but this was pretty funny!

  13. Brwonstein – Ummm… your band is playing a warm up show, is model led after phish and the only reason you have a career is cause you were there when they took a hiatus?

    I think it would be more accurate to say that you had to stop listening to them so you had some basis for not being a total rip-off. Jack Ass.

    Between the 10/30 Electron show and The Jammys he’s played a bit of Phish in the past 8 months.

  18. ..brownie was at brooklyn in 04. He has a shitload of respect for phish…headcount allstars etc etc..

    I don’t really care what phish opens with either, I care about how they play, which I think is more what marc was getting at.

  25. Tt would be very funny and very PHISH esq to have The McLovins come out when the lights go out. Allow them to play one song -> Jam -> and then one by one each band member is replaced by a real member of PHISH.

  31. Yo Im With Brownstein…. for Fucks Sake Man, Bisco Is Now Where Phish was in the 90’s. They Bring the Fucking Heat to Every Show, Anybody who doesn’t think so simply doesn’t know, And as far as everyone talking shit about the drug scene that surround Bisco…. Anything that goes on there is Nothing compared to an average Phish Lot scene. People are fuckin’ dumb sometimes. Go Talk Shit about Bisco All you Want but remember—We all Like to dance around to songs about Lizards and Silly Fairytale like shit that most of society would completley think was GAY!!!! I’ve heard the same shit talk over the years about Phish As I hear now about Bisco… I sum it all up to one thing……..People Just don’t Fuckin’ Get it!!!!

  32. Back to the purpose…It has to be YEM. Trey talked in that Rolling Stones interview, or whatever that was, about how he would give his left nut to play YEM, and some people doubted his ability saying he was too fucked up to play it. Well he’s cleaned up his act, so if that was the problem, which I don’t think it was, then YEM would be a statement opener for them.
