Pink Talking Fish Plays ‘Dark Side,’ Welcomes Special Guests On Concert Cruises

first_imgFan favorite tribute act Pink Talking Fish has had a busy couple of weeks on the water, bringing their unique synthesis of Pink Floyd, Talking Heads, and Phish‘s material to four separate concert cruises around the northeast.On July 8th, the band played two separate two-set cruises aboard The Jewel on NYC’s East River. The first cruise saw the band tackle Pink Floyd’s iconic album Dark Side Of The Moon in its entirety. This marked the first time Pink Talking Fish has played a set of just one of the three bands it covers, though it also served as a subtle Phish reference, who once played the full album live themselves (11/2/98). The show featured Elise Testone on vocals for “The Great Gig In The Sky”, as well as several other songs during the second set. The second NYC cruise featured the Turkuaz horns section for a two-set dance party that raged into the early hours of the morning. This past Saturday, July 16th, Pink Talking Fish took to the waters of Lake Champlain in Vermont, and featured a sit-in from Seth Yacavone Band bassist Alex Budney on a super funky version of Talking Heads’ “Houses In Motion” from their 1980 album Remain In Light. Finally, the band hit the dirty waters of Boston, MA on Sunday Afternoon with support from Tom Hamilton’s American Babies. Hamilton also sat in with the band on extended versions of Talking Heads’ “Pull Up The Roots” (Speaking In Tongues) and Floyd’s “Young Lust” (The Wall). The special guest star of the cruise, however, was PTF bassist Eric Goulds’ 4 year old daughter, Zia Mei, who got on stage with a bring red guitar in hand and sang with the band on “Quinn The Eskimo”. Full Audio of both NYC Cruises courtesy of Keith Litzenberger can be found below:Video of PTF Bassist, Eric Gould’s, daughter joining the band for “Quinn The Eskimo” courtesy of Benny Tucker can be seen here. Video of Tom Hamilton sitting in with PTF for “Pull Up The Roots” >”Young Lust” courtesy of Benny Tucker can be seen here.After an action-packed couple of weeks on the water, Pink Talking Fish heads to San Francisco tomorrow, July 19th, for a Phish aftershow at MEZZANINE. CRUISE SETLISTS:July 8th, 2016 – Rocks Off Concert Cruises, New York, NY, 7pm Cruise:Set 1: (Dark Side Of The Moon) Speak To Me > Breathe > On The Run > Time > Great Gig In The Sky* > Money > Us And Them** > Any Colour You Like > Brain Damage > EclipseSet 2: Lengthwise***, Moma Dance > Wild Wild Life, Have A Cigar* > If I Could*, TakeMe To The River*, Dogs > Mike’s Song > This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)*, Fearless**** > Simple > Life During Wartime* > Weekapaug Groove*w/ Elise Testone on vocals; **w/ Waste tease; ***performed accapella while the boat was rocking particularly hard due to big waves; ****w/ Roggae and Prince Caspian teasesJuly 8th, 2016 – Rocks Off Concert Cruises, New York, NY, 11pm Cruise:Set 1: In The Flesh* > Bathtub Gin* > Burning Down The House, Run Like Hell, Gumbo, Nothing But Flowers, One Of These Days > Kung** > One Of These Days, Wolfman’s Brother > Crosseyed And PainlessSet 2: 2001*** > Another Brick In The Wall > Psycho Killer > Another Brick In The Wall > Tweezer > Houses In Motion**** > Young Lust > Suzy Greenberg >Girlfriend Is Better > Tweezer RepriseE1: Quinn The Eskimo > Character ZeroE2: Cities*No Horns; **”Kuaz” instead of Kung; ***w/ Manteca tease; ****w/ Stash teaseJuly 16th, 2016 – Lake Champlain Concert Cruise, Burlington, VTSet 1: Waves > Run Like Hell > Slippery People > Moma Dance > Slippery People, Have A Cigar > This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody), Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Divided Sky > Once In A Lifetime > Divided Sky > Somewhere Over The Rainbow > Divided SkySet 2: Nothing But Flowers* > My Friend My Friend, Dogs > Pull Up The Roots > Time, Carini > Houses In Motion**, Dogs > Character Zero*w/ Ass Handed tease; **w/ Alex Budney on bass, Fiyo On The Bayou teaseJuly 17th, 2016 – Rock On!

Mourinho refuses to put boot in on Benitez after Real Madrid’s El Clasico humiliation

first_img1 Jose Mourinho Jose Mourinho insists he takes no pleasure in seeing Rafael Benitez struggle at Real Madrid.The pair have a famously fractious relationship and have regularly exchanged barbs over the years.Benitez has succeeded Mourinho at three different clubs and his wife recently joked that her husband tidies up the Portuguese’s messes.That prompted Mourinho to make a jibe about the Spaniard’s weight as relations between them hit a new low.But the Chelsea boss refused to put the boot in on Benitez when asked on Monday what he made of Real’s humiliating defeat to Barcelona, which has left his old rival on the brink.“I don’t enjoy other people losing matches. I enjoy my club winning matches,” Mourinho said.“I don’t smile with defeats from other teams, I smile with my victories.“That’s why I don’t smile a lot in the last four, five months.“In this moment I see so many people speaking especially about the clubs in trouble, it’s amazing the lack of respect.“If I speak about Real Madrid, I speak when they are winning, not when they are losing. From me, words about the Clasico. Nothing.”last_img read more
