Teenie Weeny

Two stoned teenagers recording daft numbers in a bedroom?
Yep, that just about sums up Ween's second cassette only release.

But there's already something there: seeds are being sown.
Genre subversion, psyche and folk (both of a very twisted variety), humour, satire, and chinks of the sublime that tentatively reveal where Ween were going to go; all in extreme lo-fi; enriching it no end; creating an intimacy that's genuinely authentic: no pretense; just natural and raw creativity; and a big old dose of fun.

So enjoy this piece of embryonic Ween, and hey, if anyone has a copy of Ween's first release The Crucial Squeegie Lip and they would like to share it or knows of a link to it (not bit torrent) I'd really appreciate a holla.

Meanwhile Ween go on and on; and long may they reign; and long may they commission artwork such as this recent tasty piece by Justin Hampton.
