Phish Debuts “Simple” Out Of A Crazy “Mike’s Song” Jam, On This Day In 1994

first_imgThere’s something gratifying about going through the Phish archives and pulling out some of the great shows from the band’s career. So many memorable moments came during the 1990’s, including this performance from May 27th, 1994 at The Warfield in San Francisco, CA.The band’s third night at the iconic SF spot was arguably the best of the run, featuring the debut of “Simple,” an acoustic set with Morgan Fichter on fiddle, and an audience macaroni and cheese box shaking for “Possum” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Fire.” No really, the band handed out Flintstones macaroni and cheese before the final two songs of the night and encouraged fans to shake along with them. “Shake your macaroni!,” yells drummer Jon Fishman.Of course, the song “Simple” also made its debut at this show, in its familiar setlist locale post-“Mike’s Song.” The interchange between “Mike’s” and “Simple” is downright insane, when you consider that this was the first time it had ever been played. The song was originally recorded in something of a doo-wop style for the Hoist album, but the Mike Gordon penned original didn’t make the cut. After this performance, it was significantly reworked and eventually debuted in a form closer to finalization, during the infamous O.J. Simpson police chase performance on June 17th of the same year.It’s interesting to hear how this song came to be, and we do indeed have it “Simple” for being Phish fans.

Iheanacho: I Will Not Leave Man City

first_imgOlawale Ajimotokan in AbujaManchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho Thursday responded to speculations linking him with a summer move to a host of clubs including Newcastle United and West Ham. Iheanacho’s future has been mired in uncertainty after he fell down the pecking order behind Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus at the Etihad Stadium, making him a subject of a possible transfer with Newcastle touted as one of the likely destinations.But the 20-year-old Super Eagles international, according to the Daily Star reported Thursday night, the striker had no interest in leaving Pep Guardiola’s side.Asked about the speculation around his future, Iheanacho said: “I’m not very aware of that. I just keep working with the team and I’m still at Manchester City so I’ll meet up with the boys and kick off the season with Manchester City.“I’m happy to stay at Manchester City and keep fighting to help them achieve what they want to achieve. Manchester City is a big team and we need to go far as a squad, so we need everybody.“Of course everyone is competing but we compete as a team. The manager can only pick 11 players so everyone is working, doing well and going 100 percent.“We keep working and see what comes around next season. It was a good season so I’ve really enjoyed it with my team-mates.”Newcastle United, under Rafa Benitez have acquired Ghana international, Christian Atsu, and are rebuilding for the English Premier League campaign for the coming season by looking to reinforce their ranks with players with top flight experience.And with Benitez keen to make the most of the loan market in his search for a new striker, Iheanacho seemed to fit the bill.Iheanacho has struggled for playing time under Guardiola despite scoring 12 goals in 42 games, with the Spaniard preferring Aguero and Brazilian youngster, Jesus, who arrived at the club in January ahead of him.The scheme has now been renamed VAT Wonder Goal after it was endorsed by the Federal Inland Revenue Services (FIRS) as a platform to promote tax education and engage football fans on the necessity and benefits of paying taxes to government.Abdulwaheed scored on the 10th minute of the first half for Gombe United in their match in Enugu which though ended 2-1 in favour of Rangers International with goals from Godwin Aguda and Ebuka Okeke.Saka’s lone strike on the 39th minute had secured all three points for Rivers United while Leonard’s long range effort in Shagamu gifted former champions, Enyimba International their first away win this season.“The VAT Wonder Goal while seeking to reward marksmanship of the highest quality in the NPFL by celebrating eye-catching and brilliant goals is also a platform to support the Federal Government’s drive to increase revenue from the non-oil sector, especially through taxes,” the LMC stated while announcing the partnership with FIRS.Voting will end by 11.59am on Sunday, May 27 and the player whose goal attracts the highest number of goals will receive the prize money of N150, 000 from which 50% will be donated to a Charity of his choice within the city where the club is based.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Kadiatou Sissoko’s spark off bench in Syracuse’s win provides look at her potential impact

first_imgJocelyn Willoughby was torching the Syracuse defense. The Orange had allowed the Virginia guard to score 13 quick points and found themselves down 25-22 early in the second quarter. After a free throw by the guard, Kadiatou Sissoko checked in for Miranda Drummond, who had fouled Willoughby.On the next possession, Sissoko spotted up in the left corner, caught a pass from Tiana Mangakahia, and for the first time in her Syracuse career, drained a 3-pointer. The ensuing trip down the court, Emily Engstler found Sissoko, who finished a floater in the paint.Then, the France native showed off her post moves. She caught a pass behind the arc, dribbled toward the paint and threw a pump fake that brought her defender off their feet. Sissoko stepped through and scored her sixth and seventh straight points. What was previously a three-point deficit turned into a one-point Syracuse lead, jumpstarted by its freshman forward.Sissoko added a layup in the fourth quarter to tie her career-high of nine points. After injuring her knee against Princeton on Nov. 23 and having surgery on her right meniscus, Sissoko missed two months of game action. She returned against Pittsburgh on Jan. 17, but played just five minutes. In her first four games after coming back from the surgery, she shot just 1-of-10 from the field. But Thursday’s game against Virginia was different. Despite only playing 12 minutes, she showed flashes of what Syracuse (17-4, 6-2 Atlantic Coast) expected she’d bring to the team entering the season.“We understand what kind of player she is,” SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said, “so for us we’re not shocked. We just want her to start to put it together in the games, and I think tonight was a really good start to that.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSissoko, the No. 11 recruit in espnW’s class of 2018 rankings, started the season strong. In SU’s 85-49 season-opening win over North Dakota, she scored nine points in 17 minutes and added two steals and a block off the bench. Five games later, against Kansas State, Sissoko poured in eight points and three rebounds in 20 minutes.In the next game, after playing one minute and scoring three points, she was injured. Talking about the injury the following week, Hillsman said that the team would miss Sissoko’s length, size, and athleticism. Marie-Paule Foppossi saw more playing time in her place, but she couldn’t replicate Sissoko’s skill on the court.Sissoko’s length and athleticism at 6-foot-2 allows Hillsman to play her at the top of his zone full court press, but without a player to replicate her attributes, he was forced to play the much-smaller Gabrielle Cooper in her position.“I have long arms, so it’s easier for me to take the ball,” Sissoko said about her role in the press earlier this season. “I’m versatile. I want to improve in my shots too.”Her shooting was praised by the SU coaching staff entering the season, and they thought her ability to play inside and out would be key for the Orange. But up until Thursday, Sissoko had come up empty on all seven of her tries from outside.Her triple against the Cavaliers broke her cold-streak though. Once the 3-pointer fell, she appeared more engaged on both sides of the ball. From her position on the wing in SU’s 2-3 zone, Sissoko was flying from the baseline to the top of the key. Her length, which the Orange sorely missed, forced Virginia’s shooters to take contested shots.On offense, her seven-straight points in the middle of the second quarter showed her newfound confidence and, when she’s aggressive, her natural ability to score.“(When Sissoko is confident) It does a lot for the team,” Mangakahia said. “When Kadi comes in, she attacks the rim, she gets offensive rebounds, she runs the floor, she does a lot of great things for this team.”Two weeks ago, Sissoko said that she was “85 percent” but didn’t have all the abilities she did at the start of the season. Thursday after the win, she confirmed that she was finally feeling completely healthy.With the win against the Cavaliers, Syracuse finishes the first half of its conference slate at 6-2. Next week, the Orange begin the second half away at No. 3 Louisville, which just took down No. 2 Connecticut on the Cardinals’ home floor.Hillsman said that the team had been trying to get Sissoko healthy for later in SU’s conference schedule, for teams like Louisville. For the first time in over two months, she is.“It’s a good game,” Sissoko said. “It’s a good start. I will push myself, and I hope it’s going to be the start of something good.” Comments Published on January 31, 2019 at 10:40 pm Contact Eric: [email protected] | @esblack34 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
