Maybe you remember them from their 'hit' single "Push Th' Little Daisies"
, or from their appearance on MTV's Beavis and Butt-head
. Maybe you know them from their appearance
in the film "It's Pat"
or from their contributions to the "Road Trip"
soundtrack or even from their appearance at Chef Aid on South Park
. My hope, however, is that you don't know Ween
, allowing me the opportunity to let you taste the waste
is often described as an 'Alternative Rock' band
, although their music spans nearly every genre you can concieve of
. Formed in 1984 in Pennsylvania, Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo (better known as Dean and Gene Ween
), have released over a dozen albums, hundreds of songs, and contributed to several other bands
. Their music is often ecclectic
, and beautiful
. Their love of drugs
, and music (not necessarily in that order) is legendary. Their music can be and often is hilarious, but they
have a serious side too
Nearly breaking up after a 4 year hiatus, Ween returned with a vengence last year with the release of both the "Friends EP"
and "La Cucaracha"
. This holiday season, Ween released the CD/DVD album "At The Cat's Cradle, 1992
". Dean Ween has channeled his love of fishing into a new online fishing show called Skunked
. Meanwhile, Aaron Freeman is working on his photography
A little something for everyone, maybe Ween can shrug Mefi's nearly-constant mantle of 'Your favorite band sucks'. Maybe not.
