In an effort to focus our attention on something besides Phish for a change, we’ve decided at HT headquarters to (hopefully) drum up some good chatter about the final season of the greatest television show in the history of the idiot box. Check in on Wednesday of every week during Season 6 to share your thoughts, theories, complaints and assessments of the previous night’s episode. Big time SPOILER alert for anyone didn‘t watch yet.
Synopsis: As always, we teamed up with the Joker from Coventry for this week’s setlist and recap. Side note: Joker ran a reprint of his epic LOST/Phish Tees if anyone missed out the first time around. Check ’em out.

Back in 1995, hell, even 2005, you would’ve never pegged the Disco Biscuits for an act to get one of their videos in rotation on one of MTV’s music channels. Yet, if you tuned into MTV2 or MTVU at the top of any hour yesterday, you caught an airing of the Philadelphia-based quartet’s video for On Time. To celebrate the band’s accomplishment, we’re devoting this month’s Through The Years column to the Disco Biscuits.
The earliest Disco Biscuits video on YouTube was shot in 1998, so we started our playlist with a clip from ’98 and included one video from each year through 2009. We finish with the Hidden Track premiere of On Time.
