Those early albums still rule the goddamn roost.

All their albums rule the goddamn roost.

I haven't heard the later ones as much. :-/

They're okay. Once upon a time, I dug the first few albums an awful lot. But I found I cared less and less as time went by. Not so much that the quality dropped, but my interest level sure did. Not sure why... Guess I just found 'em more charming when they seemed like go-nowhere losers fucking around (brilliantly) on a 4-track.

I wish them the best of luck in everything they do.

Their live albums rule the goddamn roost, even though they do not come close to recreating the sheer awesomeness that is a live ween experience. Although live albums don't have stinky stoners constantly moshing into you.

don't get 2 close 2 my fantasy
don't be afraid to touch the hand of your creator

you'll get to the surprise

Jesus Christ
Pain
Take one
Yeah! Pain

Last time I saw you, I was holding your hand
And I couldn't wait for you to leave
I knew right then that it was over and done
And I couldn't believe that I was free

Help me now, I'm going down
And I don't know if I'll be ok
I'll be around, I'll be in town
If you need a place to stay

When the wind blows and there's a chill in the air
I hope that someone is taking care of you
I'm alright, yeah, I'm really ok
Just so you know I'm always there for you

Help me now, I'm going down
And I don't know if I'll be ok
I'll be around, I'll be in town
If you need a place to stay

Just had a thought, could "Buckingham Green" be a reference to Lindsey + Peter? Or is it just a cool English-sounding name?

R. Stornoway (Tom D.), Friday, 16 July 2010 11:42 (3 years ago) Permalink

I always thought that it was a reference to the Buckingham Green Shopping Center located a few miles down the road from New Hope, PA.

Seeing these dudes tomorrow again! Hope they go light on the La Cucaracha album, the only dud in their catalog IMO...

people keep putting down La Cucaracha, but the two tracks I have heard from it (Woman And Man and the divine Your Party) are both amazing.

Particularly Your Party, which is plainly the best song ever recorded by anyone.

The New Dirty Vicar, Friday, 30 September 2011 11:19 (2 years ago) Permalink

are there really standouts from that album? maybe i'll give it another shot.

billstevejim, Saturday, 1 October 2011 00:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

dirty vicar otm. "woman and man" is ween's "sympathy for the devil." the sax on "your party" kills. "spirit walker" could have been on 'white pepper.' "friends" is one of their best songs. all in all have to say this album is better than 'quebec'

single version of Friends >>>>>>>> album version of Friends

robocop last year was a 'shop (sic), Saturday, 1 October 2011 02:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think quebec is maybe their best, so I cant agree with that, but La C isn't as terrible as you've probably heard
I dig "Blue Balloon" quite a bit, it's a really dumb song but I like it

by the way it's 2012 now and they still haven't released a follow up, now I'm getting sad (especially considering how prolific these guys used to be)

solo Gene Ween coming soon...

If I'm reading this correctly, it's produced by the same guy who did 12 Golden Country Greats...

this is actually pretty good. completely dissimilar to Ween outside of maybe a few tracks on White Pepper. just kind of a lush, upbeat pop album, kinda of intentionally campy, but really catchy and fun

It's an album of Rod McKuen covers. So there you go.
