Kote
« on: April 30, 2003, 02:41:38 pm »
@ KOTE

Kuspierski the Kote you\'d think he was a ghost (x4)

A strictnine down his long straight spine
A pint of lemon brown devine
Square wrap chewey rainbow shine
Depalmas in repetition he does mind

Pockets filled with kind (filled with fluffy kind)
When he comes to shows (you know he\'s always on time)
You won\'t see him later (he\'s leavin\' at 9)
Long green Kote is out, the Kote is outta line

Kuspierski the Kote you\'d think he was a ghost (x4)

American turquiose out in front
Best friends with our main man Jut
A schedule rations pretzel chunks
A liter of coke and he is drunk

Mets games he\'s a phan (with a P-H)
Wafer chips of noise (burns \'em for the band)
Bootleg car trip tokes (keeps it on the go)
Don\'t you doubt the Kote (you know he\'s cookin\' for ghosts)

Yes, a friend of the band\'s. From what I heard I guess he isnt even around anymore, thus one of the many reasons why the song was shelved. However, think of all of the obscure friends of Tom Marshall and Trey that grace numerous Phish songs ie Aaron Woolfe, Eliahu, Guela etc....



BRING BACK KOTE!!

i always wanted this to end up on an album when they were psychedelic breakfast. it would have been awesome with a horn section.

Bringing back Kote has been talked about for awhile. I love this tune. I agree, bring it back.

I am very happy to see this Kote chatter. Good stuff guys.  Kote for President.  

Here\'s a brutally tough piece of Breakfast trivia for the next time you\'re talking hardcore Breakfast with someone and they haven\'t read this thread:

What 3 Breakfast songs mention a fan by name?

[SPOILER]
1.  Kote (Jeff Kuspierski I think is his name.  Also mentions "Jut" - Justin Maturo.)
2.  Heather (Heather Palmieri, Tim\'s sister, in title only.)
3.  Beer Jubilee (Yours truly, Wolfman :) )
[/SPOILER]
Tough, tough question.

Does "Wild Pack of Asscracks" count now, due to the Ron Spears reference, or is that pushing the definition of "fan" a bit too far?
Go see your Breakfast, there are starving Leiths in California
