the era of Phish that began with the conclusion of their hiatus (10/00 - 12/02) and ended at Coventry (8/04).
Post-hiatus was nothing but misguided jam after misguided jam. The lyrics and composed parts were haggard at best. A phucking phlub phest pho sho.
American jam band formed in Burlington, VT in 1983. Members in clute Trey Anastasio (vocals, guitar), Mike Gordon (bass), Page McConnell (keys) and Jon Fishman (bass). They were active until 2004, except for a 2-year hiatus between 2000 and 2002.
Known for their improvisational skills, extended live shows and dedicated fan base (see Phisheads), Phish were at the forefront of the jam band revival of the early 1990s that also spawned Blues Traveler, the Spin Doctors and Widespread Panic.
When it comes to post-Grateful Dead improvisation-based rock bands, non can hold a candle to Phish.

|4.||The Mars Volta.|
Two individuals, Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, from El Paso, Texas. The band originally formed after their Post-Hardcore band, At The Drive-In, went on an "indefinite hiatus".more...
Their music is often classified as progressive rock, with heavy punk, jazz and Latin influences. They are known for their wild, energetic, and highly improvised live shows, cryptic lyrics, and use of ambient music to help establish mood.
The Mars Volta is not the entire band. It is only Cedric & Omar. Omar writes, arranges, records and produces all of their music. Cedric writes all of the lyrics. The music is then performed by what Cedric & Omar call "The Mars Volta Group". This includes Isaiah Ikey Owens on Keyboards, Deantoni Parks on Drums, Juan Alderete de la Peña on Bass, Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez on Percussion & Synthesizers, Adrian Terrazas-Gonzales on Flute, Tenor Saxophone, Bass Clarinet and additional wind & percussion instruments (2004 in studio, 2005 in show - Current) Pablo Hinojos-Gonzalez on Guitar & Sound Manipulation.
The Mars Volta have released the following CDs:
- De-Loused In The Comatorium (2003)
- Frances The Mute (2005)
- Amputechture (2006)
- Tremulant EP (2002)
- Live (2003)
- Scabdates (2005)
- A Missing Chromosome (2005) (Distributed Only To Radio Stations)
A j-pop group born from the money-making powerhouse that is Hello! Project (also responsible for Morning Musume), aimed primarily at pre-school to secondary-aged children that was popular from 2000 to 2004, when the group was put on "indefinite hiatus". Most of their songs were about counting, food groups, etc., with a smattering of English phrases taught by the group's one American member.
In spite of the fact that this was a group for small children, many American high school (and in some sad cases, post-high school) otaku cite Mini Moni as one of their favourite j-pop bands, because they're just so KAWAII! These people typically refuse to acknowledge that the only people over the age of five at Mini Moni concerts were parents of the children attending. It is also arguable that these people understand none of the lyrics that they so enthusiastically sing along with, as if they did, there is no way they would be calling themselves Mini Moni fans in lieu of having an IQ of 70.
Mini Moni fangirl: jankenpyon is my favorite song EVAR!
Person: You do realize that song is about playing rock, paper, scissors, right? Do you even speak Japanese?
Mini Moni fangirl: ur so baka. MINIMONIRULZ!!!
