First band practice. Let’s see. What did we play? I think I remember the Talking Heads’ song “Pulled Up.” There was probably an Allman Brothers song like “Whipping Post.” Maybe even a Grateful Dead song. Actually I think we played “Midnight Hour.” This was in Trey’s dorm lounge. The complex at UVM was Wing, Davis, and Wilks. He was in Wing. It was the fourth floor of Wing, in the dorm lounge. There is no tape of that, but there were 25 people dancing in the lounge. We also played some originals that day. Trey had some songs, like “Skippy the Wonder Mouse” [and] “Fluorescent Gerbils.” It was all sort of rat and mouse related [laughs]. Maybe “Fluffhead.” That was pretty early. If not then, it would have come soon after.
