Any other Ween fans on the forum?  I just got into the because I found a few CD's down in my basement.  Most of their music is just so stupid and hilarious.  I mean come on, you know an album is a masterpiece when it has a song called 'Poop Ship Destroyer' on it.a-hard-days-night-john-1I haven't listened to all of Ween's albums yet, but I really like 'The Pod'.  Praise Boognish!

Haven't heard of them before. I do recall a song that Donovan had called Intergalactic Laxative  - so poop and (space)ships seem surprisingly popular topics for songs.

@trcanberra 

Well if you like silly 90's basement rock, Ween is the band for you.  They have a very sludgy, homemade sound.  For starters, I would recommend 'The Mollusk' from 1997, or 'Chocolate and Cheese' from 1994.  I will warn you though, they can certainly get pretty vulgar.a-hard-days-night-paul-4

Their music is alright. I'm not sure I'd go so far as to call myself a fan, but I thought that the music of theirs that I've heard was alright. 

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

My dad gave me their "Pure Guava" CD for a Xmas gift in '93 or thereabouts, which was a complete surprise since I barely knew of their existence, and he even less so; but he knew I was into weird music and I guess he saw their name somewhere. (And I remember he was amused by the song title "Hey Fat Boy (Asshole)"!) I only played it once or twice before selling it, thought it was kinda reminiscent of certain Zappa things, didn't dislike it but just didn't care that much.

I did enjoy their track on that South Park "Chef Aid" soundtrack though. 

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
