I've been bored today, so I was reading up on some of my favorite bands, and I came across a message board where this guy was claiming that the Boredoms album Vision Creation Newsun sounds like Phish. My reaction was, "Seriously, Phish?" He listed a few albums in particular, none of which I'd ever heard. On a whim, I tracked down The Siket Disc. Weird. This stuff is nowhere near what I've heard from Phish, and I know lots of their music as a result of living with a Phish fanatic for 4 years. It's kraut-y, ambient, spaced and psychedelic. It's also fantastic.
Have I been missing out? Phish, seriously?
