Ween—The Golden Eel

2 Jun

I have discovered my favorite band recently, which is kind of a shame, because they broke up two years ago. Anyway, they’re called Ween, they do all kinds of crazy nonsense, and their two best records are “The Mollusk” and “Quebec,” in my humble opinion. Here’s a great cut from the former, called “The Golden Eel,” about, um, a Golden Eel. I don’t know. It’s strange. If you’re interested in prog rock or guitar, they’re definitely for you. They also have a really funny, borderline obscene country & western record called “12 Golden Country Greats.” It has 10 songs on it, including one really virtuosic number called “Piss Up a Rope.” That’s kind of all you need to know.
