^ that hooked my brother in Noho last year.  The second the demon thing happened his eyes went wide and he turned to me with a shit eating grin on his face

Exactly. I saw the same thing happen to a friend of mine when I brought him to his first UM show last year. I happen to love that little part (especially when Waful brings the evil red lights along with it). I am also a reformed metal head, so ya know...

EXACTLY ... the demon voice is sooo sweet!

IMO the 2.28.08 Uncle Wally stew is one of the most underrated by all of the fans; it's pure rock and roll. Fantastic layered progressions, a nice driving building tempo, great riffs and dual guitar work throughout, epic shredding peak at the end. Its dancy, but in a pure rock and roll type of way. And the last few minutes of it give me the jaw dropping, mind and hair blowing, shit eating grin, head banging type of umprov that I fucking love.

3000th post!!!! Ive wasted more time here than nearly all of you

The first show I ever listened to was 3/5/2007 at the fox in Boulder. Words was what got my attention and tinkles roped me in. My first show was on 4/12/2007 in Boston and due to the moshing, I wasn't sure that i was going back. I guess a little Sludge and Death brings out the best in everyone. I made it out to the fox in boulder on 9/1/2008 for the acoustic show. Kind of ironic that my favorite show occurred at the same place where all started for me. My second favorite show was on 4/10/2008 at the Rev hall. That Billy Jean jam inside Bright Lights is one of my fondest UM memories ever. So much fun. Oh and UM often brings me to tears as well. Only real men cry when listening to music.

talked about this with some friends at scamp, but am I the only one who would rather see a show just open with a song instead of a JO> ?

It'd be sweet if they started occasionally mixing some of their intros into the set (without the pre-recorded walk-on parts, of course) and using them as a jam vehicle.

So I listened to the 9/9/11 show per the recommendation of one of the folks in this thread. Very fine show. The other standout besides Bridgeless in that show to me was the All In Time, and it got me thinking -AIT has to be one of their most diverse songs, in terms of jams. You get a standard drum solo/rock jam half the time, but I've heard AITs recently take on an evil prog metal feel, a country feel, and of course the one in 9/9 starts off almost reggae and then becomes a beautiful soaring, uplifting jam. So I want to know, what are some really different, exploratory AITs? I'm sure there are a lot of good ones out there.

Couldnt agree more. Nipple Trix, Jekyll and Hyde, tango mike and some of the other intro JO's could be killer songs just by themselves. I feel like they could open the shit out of them and play them for ten plus minutes and I am sure no one would mind

Great place to throw a shout out to umphreaknout's stewart volumes.  Sometimes the jams are all I want to listen to. 

Actually yesterday, I think I had the 2008-10-23 Crooked One stewart, not even the full song on repeat for maybe 12 hours straight.  I really didn't even want to change it, I kinda made myself do it.

two random thoughts: 
I really want to catch "Words" live, but feel this will not happen.

I also really want to see Preamble > Mantis > "Jimmy Stewart" > Mantis... and have the JS be huge.  I also feel this will not happen.

1) Why not? It's not that rare of a tune. I've seen it twice out of 26 shows. Keep at it!

2) Yeah, probably not.

Def gotta go back and re-listen. I remember loving that section when I was there, and it was my first Spires so it was extra exciting. I was at all 4 of those BK Bowl shows, easily the best week of my life, musically-speaking.

Speaking of samples, there was one night, I believe it was the original Brooklyn Bowl gig on 1/31/11, KB's last night on the road. They kept dropping the 'what the fuck is going on? are you fucking kidding me!?' sample. No idea what it's from, but they must have triggered it like 5-10 times that night. One good example is the beginning of Snucka.

I'd love for the next UM studio album to be a "metal-centric" album. They've done the over-the-top prog album, the toned-down melancholy album, the genre-hopping album. How about one just for their harder rockin', as-yet unreleased tracks? It'd look something like this:

1 - Jekyll & Hyde
2 - White Man's Moccassins
3 - Rocker Pt II
4 - Get in the Van
5 - Bridgeless
6 - Go to Hell (yeah I know it was a bonus DBS track but I want a "finished" version)
7 - Der Bluten Kat (I know this was on Local Band Does OKlahoma but it's never been recorded in studio right?)
8 - Wizard Burial Ground
9 - Pay the Snucka Pts I-III


Edit: Totally forgot WMM was on Local Band Does OK. Strike that one I guess.
Edit: OK, DBK was on Songs for Older Women. Ya know what? Let's include that on this fictional hypothetical new studio album. And fuck it, WMM too. They're better now than they were when both of those were originally recorded anyway. Let's throw in 2x2 while we're at it too!!!!

2010/08/12 Myrtle Beach, SC has samples of the double complete rainbow guy throughout the show. You can hear an example of it at the end of Moby Dick on this podcast:

On another note, my first two shows both had samples (7/26/2008 Eat>Alex, and 4/9/2009 Ringo>T&R, both Boston). I wish I could remember what they sounded like live, but I was still an Umphrey's noob at the time. However, listening back on these shows, I love the weird samples and would definitely like to see them used more often.
