Dude, if you were rich I'd call you an eccentric kinda guy. But I guess all I can give you is eclectic for now.

BTW: I did enjoy BAG OF FAT, don't even know if that was one of your links.

I can't beleive I've never heard of these guys. They are out of New Hope, PA. I've played in New Hope for years and never even seen the name before.

I would classify these guys as alt-rock for sure with a pinch of lo-fi punk.

Ween, and Primus. Does not get much better. Did you know that Ween did the "Shoe tying" song, for an episode of Spongebob?

Their recordings go on and on and on. Its crazy that they never became huge. So much talent. I guess most people just want the same old crap.

They used to be a regular fixture here in town back in the day. I have seen them back then quite a few times in bars and at parties. Then they got a little bit famous and started touring.

I always thought they would become giants.

I gonna go see them when they come around again.

I thought Ween WERE huge?

Maybe that's just in my social circles.

They have been big for years.  They even sold out Red Rocks last year.

I know they are national but I mean huge. These guys were a local act once way back when, we would go see them in a bar or club everyone would say the same thing. "these guys are going to be huge" and it was quite obvious that they were going to be. Now to me huge is Nirvana or Pearl Jam, Led Zep.

It just amazes me how many people, music loving people, that I ask "have you ever heard Ween?" and they say "no" It blows my mind.And it blows their mind once they give a listen.

I just cant believe that they haven't been on the charts with dozens of songs over the years. I thought they were going to be a hit machine.

Not to belittle them, or to say that the "charts" mean anything.

Best song names of any band out there.

Poopship Destroyer
Piss Up a Rope
Waving My Dick in the Wind
Touch My Tooter
Spinal Meningitis (Got Me Down)

Plus "12 Golden Country Greats", the only country album back in the day with an Explicit Lyrics Advisory
