I'm pretty sure they were referring to the flyer, but yeah "blasphemous" is a good way to describe Jellyband's music (such as it is). :eek:

:lol:

The phish thing is an offensive, blasphemous ripoff of the Jesus fish! On behalf on Christians everywhere, I curse you and wish the wrath of an angry PMS-ing female Jesus upon you.

I heard she only works her wrath stuff about 5 days a month.

I once pointed out to a Christian bystander who was offended by a Darwin fish because it "mocks the Jesus fish" that idolatry has been a sin all the way back to Moses in the desert. . . but he was too fucking stupid to understand the contradiction. :lol:

Takes a narrow mind to hate.


Since I hate people with narrow minds, does that make me a self-hating hater or a self-hating narrow minder (or both)?

Mock up of the dead fish in fish bowl? That sounds like it could be a move visually pleasing idea. Right now there's nothing really tying both logos together... IMHO anyways.

...but a NY Yankees, or Boston Bruins logo, or a even a lightning bolt has more continuity? :huh:

Reminds me of when I went to my 2nd Ratdog show out in Denver when I was 16 and the hotel we stayed at had a bunch of heads...and this one grouo of kids were driving around a van that said in huge letters all over it 'PHUCK PHISH!'. They're two pretty different bands, I never understood the fan rivalry.

It's partly generational and partly that Phish phans have no taste. :lol:

To be honest, it could have to do with the relative "lighting" / "color choices."

I hear that.

Thanks, man!


Basically, we just wanted a flyer that would let people know at a glance what to expect of us, and where/when we were performing.
A Stealie is perfect for the GD crowd, and we figured a Phishie 'cause we do play a bit of teh Phish from VT.

When we posted it on FBook some folks had a problem combining GD & Phish. I dunno why... I love both bands (and many more).

It's actually kind of interesting to see the reaction of the different segments of the crowd as we go through a set... The older folks (who never really gave Phish a chance) seem to appreciate the skill it takes to perform that music, the younger folks seem to more open-minded, but after a few "older" tunes they want to hear something "newer".

I'll say this: putting aside teh Phish & GD, there are a lot of FZ fans on LI! :jamguy:
