1986-04-01IcculusLISTENIn this short, early version of Icculus, Trey introduces the song as being written by the (presumably fictional) Sneeze Blood Eyeball. After a short narration in which Trey talks about how much he and the band love Icculus and are so moved by him that they wrote a song about him, we move into the composed section, which is punctuated by Trey shouting "April Fools!"TRANSCRIPTION
8
1986-10-31IcculusLISTENAt their first recorded show on Halloween night, Phish turned to the prophet in the penultimate slot of the second set. Unlike at Rosemont Horizon (the only other Halloween Icculus to date), the holiday itself is barely mentioned in a fairly standard rendition of the song. TRANSCRIPTION
9
1986-12-06IcculusLISTENThis song is a toast to the great one.TRANSCRIPTION
10
1987-08-10IcculusLISTENTrey's work in this version is entirely unremarkable, but those listeners interested in audience participation will be sure to seek out this version for the unsolitcited narrative contributions of one, likely intoxicated, showgoer. TRANSCRIPTION
11
1987-11-19HarpuaVersion lacks the entire first verses and no narration, beginning in the part of the song which would later be the backing music for the narration.
12
1988-03-11HarpuaLISTENDebut of Harpua's narration! The mean, ugly dog rounds a corner and comes "face to fat" with a enormous, furry white cat. Poster Nutbag coils his body into a deadly arch, Harpua smiles. They are going to fight!TRANSCRIPTION
13
1988-03-22HarpuaLISTENHarpua meanders through town until he comes face to face with Poster Nutbag. Suddenly, a car drives by taking no notice of the animals. The two of them coil their bodies into deadly arches preparing for a fight.TRANSCRIPTION
14
1988-03-22IcculusLISTENIcculus amassed all the writings of the great thinkers in the Helping Friendly Book, but Wilson stole it because he was an asshole.TRANSCRIPTION
15
1988-03-22Fly Famous MockingbirdLISTENTrey cuts to the meat of the story, assuming many of the folks already knew the build up, and then gives a brief intro to Icculus before breaking into Forbin>Bird proper.TRANSCRIPTION
16
1988-04-22HarpuaLISTENThe short narration here could be described as the barebones essence of the story, featuring only Harpua and Poster Nutbag, who is described as the meanest cat in the entire town. The dog smiles, the cat arches his back, the dog drips hungry saliva. There's going to be a fight!TRANSCRIPTION
17
1988-04-22Fly Famous MockingbirdLISTENTiny narration from Trey: "At this point, the Famous Mockingbird lands on Icculus's shoulder. And he whisphers in the Mockingbird's ear and the Mockingbird flies off in pursuit of the Helping Friendly Book. Right, Marley?"
18
1988-05-15HarpuaLISTENHarpua was moseying through town looking for a little precious birthday fudge when he runs into a Big White Furry Creature From Town.TRANSCRIPTION
19
1988-05-15IcculusLISTENIntrusion by a shaggy dog aside, this version of Icculus begins rather routinely. But as things heat up, we get one of the first versions of the song in which Trey shouts the praises of Icculus for an extended time, seemingly using every superlative he can to describe him. TRANSCRIPTION
20
1988-05-21TelaLISTENBrief introduction to the context of the song "Tela" in the Gamehendge saga, Trey explains that Tela rides up to Col Forbin kneeling by the river right after Rutherford the Brave jumps in.TRANSCRIPTION
21
1988-05-24HarpuaLISTENCompact narration provides a playful recap of the story's rudiments with some funny twists, including that this poster nutbag is named Cat, which Harpua sees as "hot lunch."TRANSCRIPTION
22
1988-06-21HarpuaLISTENTrey tells the brief story of a boy, his big white cat, and their nice nice relationship that comes to a unfortunate end when Poster Nutbag encounters Harpua, the big nasty bulldog, which has moseyed over from the bad section of town through the mediocre section into the rich section, where the boy and his cat live.TRANSCRIPTION
23
1988-07-25IcculusLISTENThe night that Phish left for their now-legendary trip to Colorado, they treated the Nectar's crowd to this Icculus in the first encore slot. This standout versions includes a well-timed sexual interjection from Fishman, an incredible amount of screaming from Trey, and of course Trey's impression of Bono's "This is Red Rocks! This is The Edge!" This version appears on the Junta re-release. TRANSCRIPTION
24
1988-07-25HarpuaLISTENThis fun variation of the classic story uses Paul Languedoc as the protagonist as opposed to Jimmy, and does not reference the Old Man, but instead has Harpua wandering the town. The free and silly Nectar’s is a perfect backdrop for this late 80s Harpua.TRANSCRIPTION
25
1988-07-29The SlothLISTENBrief introduction for "The Sloth" in this quartet of songs from "our musical" from Phish's first tour of Colorado.TRANSCRIPTION
26
1988-07-29IcculusLISTENWhile not a standout version for 1988, this is worth a listen for the sake of conjuring up the image of an early-twenties Trey Anastasio screaming to a nearly-empty bar that he is a pretty cool guy. This version appears on Colorado '88 and is sandwiched between some quick plot summary of the Gamehendge saga -- even though only four Gamehendge songs appear in the set.TRANSCRIPTION
27
1988-07-30HarpuaLISTENThe first Harpua performed in Colorado features some interesting banter before beginning, as Trey tries to quiet the crowd, and a solid narration of the encounter between the meanest dog and cat in the land far far far far, utilizing several of the tropes common to these early version.TRANSCRIPTION
28
1988-08-05HarpuaLISTENTrey names the dog Sam and/or Jack, comments on his proclivity for friends playing volleyball and his big paws/pause, and almost forgets to let the audience know that the cat is named something like Buster Narbsack.TRANSCRIPTION
29
1988-11-03HarpuaLISTENAnother concise retelling of the story once upon a time of the encounter of Jimmy's big, beautiful, fluffy white cat and the meanest, fattest, ugliest bull dog in all the town.TRANSCRIPTION
30
1988-11-05IcculusLISTENTrey alludes to a picture behind the stage of a mysterious person who turns out to be Icculus. As he begins to introduce the song, he ignores requests for Johnny B. Goode and Free Bird, instead pressing on through Icculus' standard format. TRANSCRIPTION
31
1989-03-14HarpuaLISTENThis rather standard telling has a few deviations. It starts with Trey leading the audience in hand gestures that accompany the song. There are also a few mentions to notable Phish family members (Paul, Tim) and a quick reference to one of Mike's dreams (something that will become a staple in later versions of Harpua).TRANSCRIPTION
32
1989-04-20HarpuaLISTENAs the final song at one of the last frat house parties the band would play in the NE, this electric Harpua has banter carrying on from the prior "Love You," before launching into a hilarious classic narration featuring ridiculous play-on-words, first with non-shot ass before a lot of screaming "my God" in the section where Poster's name is introduced. Easily among the wildest early versions.TRANSCRIPTION
33
1989-04-20EstherLISTENThe first of four "Esther" narrations, Trey contextualizes not so much Esther's place in the Gamehendge saga, but, rather seems to illustrate Trey toying with the song taking place in Gamehendge.TRANSCRIPTION
34
1989-04-30Rhombus NarrationLISTENBrief narration: "Imagine now, you’re going out into a deep green field, and there’s the Rhombus out in the middle of the field."
35

36
1989-05-01EstherLISTENTrey delivers an account of Esther nearly identical to that of the first "Esther" narration.TRANSCRIPTION
37
1989-05-06Fly Famous MockingbirdLISTENA short, simple, and classic connecting piece between Forbin and Mockingbird.TRANSCRIPTION
38
1989-05-09HarpuaLISTENIncredibly goofy early version includes Trey dipping into some of his Icculus-style screeching and a Fishman-supplied ass motif. Features an obscure reference to Burt Bacharach's "This Guy's in Love"TRANSCRIPTION
39
1989-08-12IcculusLISTENThis version was part of the wedding reception for Steve and Beth Drebber. It is unique only in that it includes a brief and quiet interjection from Steve and some goofy trumpet playing that probably comes courtesy of Fishman. TRANSCRIPTION
40
1989-08-26Fly Famous MockingbirdLISTENSo at this time now, out of the sky, comes the Famous Mockingbird flying down, and he lands on Icculus’s shoulder. Icculus whispers in the Famous Mockingbird’s ear. The Famous Mockingbird flies off into the distance toward the Evil King Wilson’s castle to steal the Helping Friendly Book...
41
1989-09-09Rhombus NarrationLISTENThe band that came "all the way from Gamehendge" gives this brief introduction to the song "Divided Sky" to explain that it was originally an old Gamehendge chant to the gods of the night sky that was part of a yearly ritual pilgrimage to the enormous black Rhombus at the center of the field in GamehendgeTRANSCRIPTION

45
1989-10-31Fly Famous MockingbirdLISTENShort and classic narration from the band's final performance at Godard College. TRANSCRIPTION
46
1989-11-02Rhombus NarrationLISTENFollowing on the second-ever Kung, "which was part of the ritualistic chant leading into this song ("Divided Sky"), in this truncated and pretty bizarre narration Trey utilizes the refrain "green grass, high tides, forever" to convey the majesty of the land where the black black black black Rhombus stands. Also, Mike screams "Yes!!!"TRANSCRIPTION
47
1989-11-03Fly Famous MockingbirdLISTENShort and classic narration. TRANSCRIPTION

49
1989-11-30Fly Famous MockingbirdLISTENShort and standard introduction to goings on in the song.TRANSCRIPTION
50
1989-12-07Rhombus NarrationLISTENShort but exciting narration features interesting backing from the band as Trey takes us on a subjective journey "through time and space" with two friends to the center of a vast green field where we climb atop a black Rhombus thanks to our hooks to scream to the gods of the night sky.TRANSCRIPTION

52
1990-01-29HarpuaLISTENThis standard (and slightly inaudible), early 90s version centers on Poster and Harpua meeting on the street after a stroll by both. Purple Haze teases are sprinkled throughout the narration, much to the delight of a number of spectators (“That was awesome!!!”).TRANSCRIPTION

56
1990-03-11HarpuaLISTENApparently Trey was feeling somewhat verbose in this wordy early 90s version.Harpua is aware of Poster as they meet, even being the one to name the cat in this telling. The Jimmy “Purple Haze” tease accompanies his introduction.TRANSCRIPTION
57
1990-03-17Rhombus NarrationLISTENLacking any mention of the three-hook-ed instrument, Trey and two friends come down the mountain, through the deep wood, and enter a vast green green green field, at the center of which is a black black black Rhombus.TRANSCRIPTION

62
1990-06-09HarpuaLISTENWhile this version does follow the same structure as many early "Harpua"s, it's noteworthy for Fishman's often-hilarious insertions from behind the drumkit.TRANSCRIPTION

66
1991-04-06IcculusLISTENAfter Steve Drebber's wedding, Icculus becomes much more of a rarity. The first version in two years is remarkable in that it includes a quick thank-you from Trey to the fans who have been following the band up through this final show of their first West Coast swing.
