In my opinion, Ween is one of those bands... there are very few of them... who are truly fucked up and capable enough to be a relevant creative force.

They're just a sprawling, scatter-brained blast of energy, with multiple personality disorder.

There are very few bands like them... few bands with the same tenacity, spontaneity, and actual musical ability. Among their peers are: Velvets, Beatles, SY, Lips, Beck, Pavement, and David Bowie, but precious few others.

I really like them, even when I hate them.

Same. Choc&Cheese is my favorite, but the Mollusk is a dark, sinister, beautiful mess.. easy #2. After that, I can't say, but I enjoy all of their albums and think they're one of the most inventive bands of my generations (which, it seems, is over).

I'm an old fart.

Ween are one of my favourite bands. They're amazing at capturing the sound of other bands, and in most cases sounding better.

Sharpen yer boots, I'll bludgeon yer eye!!

lol

I even dig GodWEENSatan. Any band that can pull of full-on hardcore and jangly folk simultaneously is awesome... it's a law of nature.

Oh, and any band that can make a song about a puppy (i.e. "Fluffy") sound gut-wrenchingly terrifying has my vote too.

Yah. Definitely one of the best bands ever.

Pure Guava is the only one I don't know by heart. I have it, but have never really listened to it at length. I suck.

Let's talk about Ween some more.

GodWEENSatan is my favorite one actually. So much going on on that record. The only one I don't care for is White Pepper, which if I recall correctly was the only record of theirs not produced by Andrew Weiss, must be something there.

I haven't really heard the new one either, La Cucaracha or however you spell it. I remember Blue Balloon though, I liked that one.

Amazing rock band, great energy. I love Live in Chicago, one of the great concert videos of any band.

Wow, they're opening for the Flaming Lips at Riot Feat in Chicago next week! Christ I wish I'd thought to look into this earlier. Touché Amore and Meat Puppets are also playing that day. Dammit. Not gonna make it.

Don't get me started on WEEN! Don't even, get me started! I'm a 5 year survivor of the fitness gulag known as 'Ween Forum' i'll post my Ween Sgt. Pepper fan DVD on here if anyone wants to buy it. It's full of my Ween cartoons and fan drawings and coupons.
I'm finally seeing my first Ween show in Toronto next Saturday at the TURF festival. Guided By Voices are playing that day and I'm hoping The Sadies are playing that day too.

It's $25 US pm me if you want a copy. I can encode it for EuroDVD zone but i'd probably have to charge more for shipping
