 Phish.Net FAQ: Siket
The Siket Disc grew from material developed during the Bearsville Studio sessions for Story of a Ghost.
"Those sessions we did when we recorded "The Siket Disc" yielded some of the material that ended up on [the 1998 album] "The Story of the Ghost." We put lyrics on top of "Roggae," "End of Session," "Meat," and "Ficus." About half the songs on the album were from that session.
"The Siket Disc" was the things left over from that session that we didn't put lyrics on top of.

 /// Pen-Ultimate ///
The Siket Disc, named after engineer/mixer John Siket, is a fascinating by-product of the recording sessions for the band’s 1998 album, The Story of the Ghost.
Siket, who has produced work from such luminaries as Medeski, Martin and Wood, The Replacements, and Diesel, culled this disc from approximately 75 hours of session jams, boiling it down to a 35-plus minute set of purely improvisational tracks.
The Siket Disc’s classic is “What’s the Use?” featuring a jazzy, bluesy riff that serves as a backdrop for some tremendous wailing guitar work with a scaled down, mellower Robert Fripp-like feel to it.

 PHISH The Siket Disc reviews and MP3
The Siket Disc is an interesting little piece in the Phish catalog.
It is a group of studio jams recorded during 1998' Story of the Ghost session.
After "What's the Use?," the disc wanders a bit; several pieces along the vein of "Fish Bass," which is nothing more than drummer John Fishman playing with the bass and its effect pedals for a minute and eleven seconds, dot the short "song" list.

Recorded in just a couple weeks this past spring, the disc is the edited result of jam sessions with Miami Beach's Spam Allstars, a Latin-groove collective including horns and a turntablist.
Thus, The Illustrated Band is Vida Blue's Siket Disc.
That said, it is radically different from anything McConnell, Burbridge, or Batiste have ever released in their respective careers.

 Amazon.ca: Siket Disc, the: Music   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
This CD is an ambitious step for Phish, and for me it represents the prime of Funk '97, their peak year in my opinion.
I think Siket Disc is one of their most cohesive pieces, and it breaks all of the boundaries set by the conventional studio album.
If art rock nerds could handle listening to an album by a "stoner hippie rock group" and not be so critical all the time, they would find something very rewarding here.

 CANOE -- JAM! - THE SIKET DISC
Well, yes and no. Yes, The Siket Disc has just been issued by Warner Music.
The disc, a 35-minute collection of studio jam sessions recorded by the band's long-standing engineer John Siket back in '97, was previously available via Phish's own label.
If, however, you're not a big fan of Phish's pachouli-and-incense vibe, Siket Disc will definitely sound like the latter, as the band eschew substance for silliness, spending their time playing in the sonic sandbox, building soundscapes that don't really begin, end or go anywhere.

 Eye - On Disc - 12.07.00
Essentially a selection of improvised outtakes from two 1997 studio sessions with engineer/mixer John Siket (Sonic Youth, Guster), The Siket Disc (that's his car on the cover) perfectly exemplifies the heights of experimentation Phish could easily reach if they just relaxed their busy fingers.
Judging that it was recorded in '97, mixed in '98 and mastered (by Bob Ludwig) and released (via Internet) in '99, this is obviously a project that would not have seen the light of day had it not been for Siket.
The band has stated that the album shows an "esoteric" side of them that hasn't previously been documented, which is quite apparent from the get-go and warmly appreciated throughout.

 JamBands.Com - June '99 - CD Reviews
There is a unified vibe between the two - and, for that matter, between every track on "the Siket Disc" - and, to draw it one step further, between "the Siket Disc" and "the Story of the Ghost".
The version included on "the Siket Disc" has the vocals removed from it, and only the weirdness is left behind.
This confounds more expectations: Out of 20 hours of jamming, only 35 minutes are here; from a band legendary for their lengthy improvisations, (for the most part) only the briefest of snippets have been included.

 Rolling Stone : Phish Reel in "Victor Disc"
While in New York last December for an appearance on Late Show With David Letterman, the band taped ninety minutes of improvised music and is calling the result the Victor Disc, after the session's engineer.
Phish frontman Trey Anastasio and keyboardist Page McConnell dropped by the downtown studio where the set was recorded after midnight the night before their Letterman taping.
Anastasio says the band might edit the jams into song-type structures as it did with the 1997 sessions that became the 2000 release, The Siket Disc.

"Part of the Happy Whip and Dung Song - featured on The Siket Disc - is the music for the verse of Meatstick.
That is, in addition to being excerpted for the Siket Disc, the jam was also turned into a song in the same way that the bases for Meat, Fikus, Shafty, etc. are actually pieces of improvisation."

When I saw that the guys from Phish were releasing their third album in just over a year, I was ecstatic.
I rushed out and got it immediately, for I greatly enjoyed the vibes coming off of their last two albums, Story of the Ghost and Farmhouse.
So there I sat, marinating on The Siket Disc (named for the engineer and mixer of the album)and wondering what I had gotten.

Though you can derive great pleasure by just listening to the music, greater insight and enjoyment can be had by studying the arrangement of the contrapuntal "subject and answer" voices, unravelling each guitarist's melody line.
When you think your disc player is about to melt they space out into a Close to the Edge introspective, meditative, quicksilver-quiet sea as etheric vocals peel away reality.
The rest of the live half of the CD is middling, and less than fascinating, but at least Pinhas gives the guitar a trademark workout which should satisfy the completionist.

Phish's The Siket Disc, named for engineer and mixer John Siket, contains improvisations performed by the group in the late winter and early fall of 1997 at sessions for its album The Story of the Ghost.
Originally available only by mail order from the band, it was given a retail release by Elektra shortly after Phish announced that it was going on an indefinite hiatus in the fall of 2000.

And for the legion of fans that religiously follow Trey's band Phish from city to city it's a great CD to show mom: "See mom, this is the guy I've been following around." This point holds true because Seis De Mayo isn't really anything like Phish.
In fact, Trey only appears on two of the seven instrumental tracks found on the disc.
This is Trey the writer, composer, and producer, definitely not Trey the guitar-ripping rock star.

 Siket Disc by Phish CD
That's Siket as in John Siket, who engineered the album, thus making this a spiritual, if not musical, cousin of the Yardbirds' similarly titled classic ROGER THE ENGINEER.
One cut, the aptly titled "Phish Bass" (distinguishing characteristic: a lot of rumbling noises) clocks in at barely a minute long.

They recorded hours and hours of improvisational jams over a period of several days, and then took the highlights of those jams and wrote songs around them.
The result was the funky ´´The Story of the Ghost´´ album (followed by the all-instrumental ´´The Siket Disc´´ in 1999).
Phish headlined Farm Aid in the summer of 1998, sharing the stage with Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and Paul Shaffer.

 The Phish Archive - Welcome.
Through their website, www.phish.com, the band released an eponymous collection of early, pre- Junta recordings, with some tunes actually predating the formation of Phish itself, including early versions of the now Phish classics "You Enjoy Myself" and "Run Like An Antelope."
The band also used their website to release The Siket Disc, a collection of spacy, jazzy instrumentals that had been freely improvised by them during sessions for Ghost (it has since been made available in stores).
But while this weird and wild collection is rather interesting, it is ultimately the kind of thing only an unflinching Phish fan would enjoy listening to more than once.
