Latest Phish News and Downloads (including previously uncircualted shows) from Around the Internet

The release of Phish's 11th studio album and first in five years, Joy, is just three days away, and you would think that with a little downtime between live performances that Phish would sort of drop out of the news spotlight. But no. Publications and web sites from all over the U.S., and a few in Europe, continue to devote column space to Phish, with articles and blog entries published and posted all over the place.

So, The Wagger made it easy for the discerning Phish-head to locate these tidbits in one location. Below is the latest Phish news and links to downloads, including some rare gems never before available on a widespread basis, from across the globe -- some you may have already read or heard, some you'll find new. Enjoy!

Phish: Joy (ICT Magazine) - from The Wagger -- This is the most poorly written, verbose article I have ever seen in my life. I think the writer wanted his readers to see that he has an exceptional vocabulary, even if he doesn't know how to use the words to string together a readable story.
