Man, I don't know who you are, but you cannot fuck with Ween. Man.

Yes, HTP, Ween are great. You went and got drunk w/o me, you selfish putz.

Tom Millar (Millar), Sunday, 15 December 2002 07:08 (seventeen years ago) link

Fuck dude, I didn't get home today until 9:30 or so, then Sater stopped by and dropped the Krshna news on me, and then I had to go grocery shopping, by the time I did could relax it was way too late to call people over w/out the wife having objections. Like you've never drank while I wasn't around. Sheesh.

On a different note.. I like big butts and I can not lie, those otha brothas can't deny.....

Why can't you stand them, because they are funny? Because they attempt to be funny or irreverent but you're not in the mood for it? Why?

Yarn vs. Egg, Monday, 16 December 2002 00:22 (seventeen years ago) link

what!

(but seriously, they're good for a laugh or two. TMBG for the pottymouthed set. faves are the live version of "dr. rock" and "don't laugh I love you," songs do the genre they're parodying justice).

Anthony Miccio (Anthony Miccio), Monday, 16 December 2002 01:04 (seventeen years ago) link

They're the musical equivalent of Chevy Chase. Very smug, and not as funny or talented as they think they are.

Luis Marijo, Monday, 16 December 2002 07:05 (seventeen years ago) link

Pure genius. Every album contains something beautiful and warped.

Their parodies of prog-folk are better than the 'serious' revivalists of the genre. There's nothing better than "Cold Blows The Wind." The assertation that it's a traditional Chinese spiritual only makes it more brilliant. Sample this lyric for proof:

"Go fetch me a nut from the dungeon deep
and water from the stone
and white milk from the maiden's breast
that babe ere never known"

Plus, every Prince fan in the world needs to hear "LMLYP." Yet "Birthday Boy" from the same album is one of the most poignant breakup songs, capturing the confusion and resignation of a mutual breakup that just about every other breakup song misses.

And no I am not nor have I ever been stoned.

zaxxon25 (zaxxon25), Monday, 16 December 2002 14:53 (seventeen years ago) link

When it comes to Ween, I agree 10,000% with Henry Rollins.

(If you haven't heard his damn-near 6 minute going-off-about-how-amazing-Ween-is rant, well, I apologize.)

nickalicious (nickalicious), Monday, 16 December 2002 17:57 (seventeen years ago) link

three years pass...
Man, I'll tell ya. I love Ween. Even now, after I've listened to all their albums over and over and over again. They somehow manage to be serious and funny at the same time, which is rare and wonderful. I think TMBG is mostly silly. Gloriously silly, yes, but I never feel like it's anything but an elaborate, literate joke. Ween is, like, somehow both utterly ridiculous and juvenile but also strangely affecting and almost sweet sometimes. It seems more sincere in it's absurdity, I suppose. Plus, it also rocks, which TMBG doesn't really.

I'd love to see them live again, but they don't appear to be venturing to New England any time soon. Best Ween live experience: Burlington, VT, Halloween 2003. During "LMLYP" some crazed hippie on stilts in a gigantic cat costume, complete with huge papier mache head, came out on stage. Plus, viking helmets and wizard hats and extremely short loincloth-esque thing on Deaner. And three people in an actual Poop Ship Destroyer costume.

Also, I seem to be one of the few female Ween fans. I've only known one personally, and I'm not sure that I've seen too many at shows. Girl Ween fans hollah at me?

Emily B (Emily B), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 01:26 (thirteen years ago) link

If my sister were one for the Net I'd refer her to this thread. She LOVES Ween, in fact I think they're still her favorite band of all time. She made them hot meals, she's danced onstage with 'em to "LMLYP," etc.

I have it on my PC at home, I think! Will (hopefully) be back with it later.

Apparently Ween and the creators of Spongebob Squarepants have a pretty good relationship...not only was "Ocean Man" in the movie OST (in the coveted as-the-credits-begin-to-roll spot), but they did a song about HOW TO TIE YOUR SHOES for one episode that totally owns! Also, Spongebob once said something about his pet snail Gary's "wandering eye...you little mollusk, you!".

Matos-Webster Dictionary (M Matos), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 19:00 (thirteen years ago) link

So TMBG is the hipster equivalent to Ween?

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 19:01 (thirteen years ago) link

Is this even a question?

Matos-Webster Dictionary (M Matos), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 19:04 (thirteen years ago) link

TMBG and Ween are actually, like, totally dissimilar, other than the were-duos-now-they're-not thing.

mummy wrapped in bacon (nickalicious), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 19:04 (thirteen years ago) link

i lump tmbg in with gbv and aywkubttod and other bands whose names are self-referential in a vaguely threatening/sinister manner, but who are actually easily defeatable

gear (gear), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 19:06 (thirteen years ago) link

I'm the opposite. Ween has many, many songs that are not LAFF LAFF CLEVER CUTE SNEER SHITTY NASAL SINGING LAFF LAFF. Which, to my understanding, is the entire premise of TMBG. but admittedly, I haven't heard everything they done.

veronica moser (veronica moser), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 19:07 (thirteen years ago) link

You know, the "They" in They Might Be Giants actually DOESN'T refer to them. They say their name is like frightened people looking out there windows..."beware the out there...THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS"!

Man, I fucking LOVE Ween! I was at a show years ago and it was ex-cel... Well, uh, excellent. I remember they did this jam thing while a woman was dancing. I think they just stretched for a good twenty minutes just to have a laugh at her expense. Great show.

ween are better now at singing and playing guitar but worse at making records.

¨ˆ¨ˆ¨ˆ¨ˆ¨ˆ¨ˆ (chaki), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 19:17 (thirteen years ago) link

Sure, they copped Pink Floyd on Quebec, but it was still one of their most cohesive albums. Some great songs on there, too. Tried and True, Happy Colored Marbles, etc. I also think White Pepper is a bit underrated. If anything, I think they're getting better at making albums. Admittedly they've matured as a band, and maturity is probably the one description a lot of fans don't want applied to Ween.

cosmo vitelli (cosmo vitelli), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 20:49 (thirteen years ago) link

something about ween seems very masculine, not in a macho kind of way, but in a boy's club, teenage kind of way. not to say they're always so juvenile and stupid, but you know what i mean, right? i can see it not appealing as much to women as to men, but then again what do i know. i like fart jokes.

i also like primus. if you come buy a copy of les claypool's new album at my record store in bangor, and we sell more than anyone else in any of the stores participating in this little contest, les will come eat pizza and drink beer with us. no foolin'! i know you won't!

haha, my answer to Ned was more flippant than anything. I just think they're both annoying in a clever-clever way. they certainly don't sound very alike.

Matos-Webster Dictionary (M Matos), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 21:04 (thirteen years ago) link

Over the years, Ween has penned a series of oddly sincere break-up songs. They're working with a much broader palette than TMBG, or most other bands for that matter.

cosmo vitelli (cosmo vitelli), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 21:22 (thirteen years ago) link

I listened to White Pepper again a couple of times recently, and if you can forget that you're listening to Ween (admittedly difficult) there's actually some pretty good songs on that record. You can enjoy the entire album without laughing once.

o. nate (onate), Tuesday, 20 June 2006 23:26 (thirteen years ago) link

yes theres like 3 rockin awesome songs. but like godweensatan is a barrage of awesomeness just hitting you one glorious track after the other.

I'm a GodWeenSatan fan (and a The Pod fan - after that, it depends on what kind of mood I'm in), so you won't get an argument from me. (Okay, there are some tracks on GWS that I skip, but overall, yeah, it blows their later stuff away.)

I can’t believe this band never made it big.

Mr. Snrub, Wednesday, 29 August 2018 20:42 (one year ago) link

think the story is that Gene broke up the band due to his addiction problems, as apparently he'd get offered drugs and alcohol nonstop while the group was touring which is ahh pretty hard for an addict. Dean Ween Band is just something for Dean to do in the meantime

I'm not really sure what the status of Ween proper is now. can't really blame them for getting back together given that Ween can sell out decent sized venues while their solo acts tend to hit the local band spots. I mean they still sound great and they're still doing wild 3-hour sets, so idk what the deal is

frogbs, Wednesday, 29 August 2018 21:08 (one year ago) link

Deaner never left: Gene left during that period of getting sober when they tell you not to make any major life decisions. Deaner started two new bands to play local bars & the rest of the live Ween band carried on playing Ween songs in clubs as The Dean Ween Group for a few years. They now have two albums of originals and a rotating membership, and don’t play any Ween hits live.

Gener tried to play Ween-sized venues off the back of his solo album of Rod McKuen covers, unsurprisingly flopped hard, licked his wounds and after a few years played a reunion show at Red Rocks. It doesn’t seem likely that they’ll write & record together again, but Ween now play handfuls of big shows through the year, and Dean keeps playing bars at home and clubs on the road.

last night's show in Milwaukee was excellent. we missed the first song ("Buckingham Green", I'm told), and the second was "Laura", a song I didn't even know they played live. in all, they played like, half of The Pod, and a bunch from Pure Guava too. they also did a cover of Bowie's "Lets Dance". kind of wish I wasn't so wasted for it, but that's Ween for ya. I gotta say, their crowds are exactly as advertised.

Dean said the process of making the first one was really exhausting - apparently a lot of the demos weren't really in releasable condition, so a lot had to be recorded fresh. Also they don't really like revisiting old songs. Still, a Shinola Vol. 2 would sell a ton of copies so yeah idk why they didn't make it

Still, a Shinola Vol. 2 would sell a ton of copies so yeah idk why they didn't make it

People stopped buying tons of copies of anything, and Aaron & Mickey stopped working together offstage. It’s been, what, fourteen years since they recorded anything?

Fantastic. Great move. Well done (sic), Friday, 14 February 2020 18:45 (one week ago) link

well yeah it would be bizarre if they made it now. they should've done it in 2009.

I'm saying that we can now see that they had stopped working together by 2009

I don't know, but I definitely knew some guys in college circa 1994-95 that listened to a lot of jam bands but also listened to a ton of Ween.
