Synopsis

Album Description
Kings of home recording, the two masterminds of Ween (grade school friends and twin brothers Gene and Dean) have taken the four-track portastudio to the very limits of its potential on this compilation of the throwaways from the sessions for their Elektra debut Pure Guava . Recorded in an apartment above a barn in their home town of New Hope, Pennsylvania, their studio, affectionately named The Pod , featured the aforementioned recording device, a few crappy 80's effect boards, various drum machines, keyboards, guitars, and copious quantities of inhalants. The cover art even features a mangling of the cover of The songs of Leonard Cohen with a gas mask equipped to aid the inhalation of Scotch Guard spray starch covering Leonard's face. What is contained within is one of the most eclectic, original, and truly warped collection of songs . . . ever.

Good Clean Fun ?

(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Pod is the aural equivalent of a weekend drug bender. Equally sinister and silly, soothing and shocking, this is the sort of lo-fi walk through genre-hopping that only Ween can pull off. And the obscenities of tracks like "the Stallion, part 1" and "She F**ks Me" would sound like nothing more than exercises in juvenille boundary pushing if it weren't for the challenging and often brilliant music underneath. "Pollo Asado" alone makes the Pod worth buying. The hilarity of Gene Ween ordering Mexican take-out using the fakest Spanish accent since Pink Floyd's "A Spanish Piece" is not to be missed."
