Every genre they play with, they nail it, and then bend it and twist it all to hell. I don't put on Ween when I want to laugh. I don't listen to comedy records, and I loathe gimmicky comedy bands. I listen to Ween when my brain can handle the overload of expertly crafted, schizophrenic music that is written with all the texture and care of a Lennon/Mccartney joint, no matter how ugly it may get, or how odd it might sound.

Bottom line: they're not a goddamn joke band. No more than Sebadoh (who I once saw them open for), or the Flaming Lips, or blah blah. Nobody likes joke bands. I think people would have an easier time with Ween if they stopped focusing on that massive misconception.
As you know, I am the one who pay attention only in music. Lyrics can be "hamtydamty" but if the music is great I just love it! After listening Mollusk & Pod I donīt think Ween have added nothing into it what Mothers Of Invention did in the sixties (I really hate those cheap synth drum machine sounds in the pod, they really should have put for example distortion between that ugly synth & recording machine, I am glad it didnīt prevent me to enjoy that album wholly). I think Ween is much more softer, some kind of pop version of the mothers that era. I am anyway glad I have listened it and maybe sometime in the future will listen it more when there is moment I havenīt got any other interesting album I havenīt listen yet (It might took long).

If I had heard Ween in the nineties, my opinion could of course be different. On the other hand I think it might not, because I think I am the only one here who thinks SY hasnīt made anything really special and new, but I anyway love it and itīs my favourite band.

speaking of Neil, I've really been wanting to hear Psych Pill again lately but im scared i'll have to be in a certain mood.
I really love Mr. Tambourine Man, Fifth Dimension & Younger Than Yesterday-albums! Really also always loved Byrds version about Mr. Tambourine Man, hard to say which is better, Dylan or theirs. Have to listen also Turn!Turn!Turn! album someday.

I wouldn't still be talking about this if I wasn't sick with a two week cold downing nyquill so this is my last tribute. enough about fucking Ween. you guys are insane lame naïve.
About drugs & creativity, I have always thinking drug using doesnīt increase creativity even it of course affects the substance of what you create. If itīs not so, then I think we have lots more creative people in the world.

To me it have been backward, I have first checked all the sixties and seventies stuff and after that 80-2000 stuff. Never really get in anything of the lame stuff of sixties/seventies like Steely Dan or later Fleetwood Mac. Thin Lizzy is ok.

Have you heard any of their country stuff? Wondering if you'd dig it. You might. In 1968 or so, they stopped ripping off REM and became another band.
