Welcome to the 360th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday, the fourth, last, and hardest of January! @wforwumbo back in the captain's chair for a hot minute, as my dissertation seems to finally be cooling off - thank you to @ucpete for graciously trading reins with me. This week we have a delectable little challenge courtesy of MJM Hall of Famer @jimsleftear, and I do have to say he's come up with a real stumper. So strap on your seatbelts, grab your favorite pair of headphones or speakers, and get your best tapes out of the catalog for this one. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the songs and dates of the three mystery clips. The clips are connected by a theme, but the theme needn't be part of the correct answer. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one answers correctly in the first 24 hours, I'll post a hint. After the hint, everyone gets one more guess before Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Good luck!
Hint: Something smells bad... or more accurately, there is some stink in the air.
Answer: Talk about on heck of a first win! Thanks to the hint, @Matty1222 snags his first download code by tying together three jams from shows in which the Makisupa Policeman code word involved the word "stink": the 11/15/96 Mike's Song, the 7/12/99 Foreplay/Long Time, and the 12/28/96 Weekapaug Groove. With a bludgeoning like that, will our new competitor become the newest member to ride the ranks to the promised land of emeriti? Stay tuned in the coming weeks to find out - or even beat him to the punch!
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
