Listen To Phish’s Debuts Of ‘Moma,’ ‘Roggae’ & ‘Brian and Robert’ On This Day In 1998

first_imgMuch like this summer, Phish had taken some time to prepare new material ahead of their 1998 summer tour. The new songs would ultimately end up on The Story Of The Ghost, and a tour through Europe would prove the ultimate testing grounds for these new gems. Not only did Phish bring out three brand new songs for the fans who made it to the tour opener in Copenhagen, but they treated fans to a great show in the process.Opening with “Limb by Limb” and “Ghost,” Phish treated fans to an alternate version of their classic tune “Water in the Sky” in the first set. You can hear the excitement at the new interpretation! There was an air of excitement for the first-ever “Roggae” too, a song that would become a staple of live shows. The band also turned a 1997 funk jam into “The Moma Dance,” with Trey Anastasio even going so far as to teach fans the now-forgotten dance that accompanies. After a great second set, the band brought out one more new song, “Brian and Robert,” for the encore.Listen to the full audio of the show, courtesy of fromtheaquarium.You can see the phish.net setlist below.Setlist: Phish at The Grey Hall, Freetown Christiania, Copenhagen, Denmark – 06/30/1998 Set 1: Limb By Limb, Ghost, Water in the Sky[1] > Bouncing Around the Room, Tube, Stash -> Cities, Roggae[2], Guyute, Beauty of My Dreams > Funky Bitch, Train Song, David BowieSet 2: The Moma Dance[2], Birds of a Feather, Wolfman’s Brother -> Frankie Says > Run Like an Antelope, Lawn Boy, Ya Mar, Ha Ha Ha, Mike’s Song -> Swept Away > Steep > Weekapaug GrooveEncore: Brian and Robert[2][1] Debut of “new” faster arrangement.[2] Debut.Notes: This show marked the debuts of Roggae, The Moma Dance, Brian and Robert, and the “new” faster arrangement of Water in the Sky.
