Mac OS X Normal Select Pointer THIS IS WEEN, MY FRIEND!

City Gardens in 1988. Photo by Tom Nichols(x)
Ween rehearsing as “The Ween” in 1988 which included Andrew Weiss on bass and Sim Cain on drums. Photo was taken by Tom Nichols in Andrew’s house.They tried maybe about two shows or so until abandoning the full band idea. They wouldn’t attempt adding a bass player and a drummer again until their short tour of England in 1992 with Claude Coleman and Mark Kramer.

I just got my copy of this book about a week ago. Mickey wrote the forward for this book and of course Ween is featured in it.  Their first live show was opening for the Butthole Surfers on May 3, 1987. They continued to open for many bands like the Ramones, 7 Seconds, Killing Joke, and many more. Mickey says that at one point they were playing there about twice a month, and he also worked there as a teenager in exchange for free admission. Ween also happened to be the last show that Randy Now booked on December 2, 1994. They were the headlining band for that final show.

Here is some rare footage from our farmhouse/studio. The video is glitchy and the audio gets messed up at one point. I plugged my headphone mix feed into the camcorder so the audio is hi-fi anyway. This is Gene ween getting in touch with his feminine side singing “Slow Down Boy” from our “Friends e.p.”

This is one of my favorite tv clips of us. “Pure guava” was still a new record and we had just written this song. I think this is one of our last performances as a duo. This was filmed early in the morning and we were very stoned.

Aaron and I filmed this one ourselves and played the song live. Probably the only good video we ever made.

I found this at a flea market and knew instantly that this was gonna be our album cover. I handed it to the art director and told him to draw our faces over these folks. We fell in love with the color scheme. -Mickey

Freedom of 78: Pure Guava IPA

A nice medium bodied IPA with a wonderful bright clarity and pleasing bronze hue. The aroma is a unique fusion of citrus fruit combined w/ subtle pine qualities. The distinct characteristics of the guava nectar are impossible to miss as the sharp sweetness and slightly tart flavors snap across the palate. Comparable attributes of tangerine, nectarine, and even some faint honey flavors are detectable. The finish quickly turns to a bitterness expected of an IPA, that resonates and turns dry during prolonged tastings.

Freedom of the body, freedom of the mind, this bitter nectar does it all ABV 6.9%

Ween - Nan - Las Vegas 1994
"Nan" live at The Huntridge Theater in Las Vegas on November 14th 1994. Featuring Andrew Weiss on bass and Claude Coleman on drums. This song has always been my personal favorite, and as always the guys were killing it in Vegas for a group of their most loyal fans.

Filmed by Brian Rohan w/ synced SBD audio source from a tape compiled by Kirk Miller.

Ween - You Fucked Up - Mick’s Bedroom 1987


Dean and Gene rehearsing “You Fucked Up” in Deaner’s room in the summer of 1987. Filmed by usual suspect Mr. Tom Nichols.

Aaron wrote the lyrics a few years earlier around 1985, inspired by the conflicts he was having with his stepmother.

They sure have come a long way.
— with Ween in New Hope, PA.
