Description - Run Like an Antelope by Sean Gibbon

"America's Biggest Underground Jam Band" - Rolling Stone; Despite their enormous underground success in America, Phish were, until recently, the world's biggest unknown rock'n'roll band. Considered the rightful heirs to The Grateful Dead, due to their dazzling improvisational style and the undying loyalty of their fans, each of their albums had sold more than 500,000 copies, and their concerts sold out instantly. However, following the MTV-led success of the Farmhouse album, released last year. the band are finally reaching the mass audience that their music so richly deserves. Sean Gibbon is a journalist from the band's hometown and a massive Phish fan who followed the band and their kite's tail of hundreds of thousands of followers on their 1999 summer tour, and his ensuing adventures among the Phishheads make for a memorable, hilarious odyssey into this new frontier of American pop tribalism. Gibbon navigates the wild, fascinating Phish subculture with verve and a keen eye, brilliantly chronicling both the enormous energy of the band's music and the unique character of their fans.
