Who else could convince 80,000 fans to drive to the northernmost tip of Maine for a weekend-long concert featuring ten hours of music by a single band?

Like so many indie darlings, Phish found success without MTV, without a hit single, without mainstream recognition or respect -- but with tour receipts matching Jay-Zs.For all their success, even then, they were still in a sense underground, a blip on the mass-cultural radar: the spiritual successors to the Grateful Deads psychedelic-utopian legacy were four geeks from Vermont playing music of Zappa-level complexity (and silliness), ranging from trance-inducing ambient chillouts to nasty James Brown funk burners to manic multipart fugues.

Theyd play shows to nearly empty amphitheaters in Salt Lake City...then sell out Madison Square Garden a month later.Phishs Fall 97 Tour (tagline: Phish Destroys America) is regarded by many fans as their musical high point: a month of intense exploration and ecstatic celebration that cemented their reputation as the go-to source for shamanic math and rocknroll science.A Tiny Space to Move and Breathe is one writer/fans impassioned, idiosyncratic, detailed, persnickety, personal, lyrical, scattered, loving, weird, joyful, desperate, and above all rather long celebration of the music and moment of Fall 97: a band, a tour, a guy, and a bucketload of concert recordings.

If youre a longtime fan, welcome back to the mountaintop. If youre new to Phish, all the better:Wax Banks wants to show you what the noise is about.
