The Boognish will not be happy about this.

12 Golden Country Greats was farking wonderful.

Saw this coming. Mickey Melchiando is running his charter fishing business full time and doesn't sound like he has any interest doing anything else.

Damn shame. I realize they're not everyone's cup of tea, but they're one of my favorite bands in the world, and one of the best live bands ever. They never released a bad album.

I had been curious wondering why they haven't released anything since La Cucaracha in 07, but then I read about Gene's on-stage breakdown and treatment for substance abuse around the time Gene's solo album came out. I figured then that Ween's days were probably over.

And this.

If you'd told me that 10 years ago i still wouldn't have cared.
 
2012-05-29 09:51:15 PM
That's sad. They had a hell of a run.
 
2012-05-29 10:30:37 PM
I, for one, was unaware that Ween was still a band.

They put have put on one the best show I've ever seen. Some crazy ass shiat at that Stubb's show in '02.

I wouldn't put too much stock in the report. 30 min after my ween calls it quits, its up and ready to go again.
 
2012-05-29 11:42:37 PM
It all seems so hollow now
 
2012-05-30 12:46:12 AM
I saw 'em live twice and they were amazing. They had a good run.
 
2012-05-30 12:46:29 AM
WHY COULDN'T IT HAVE BEEN WILCO? WHYYYYY????

Seminiferous tubloidal buttnoids.

Beavis and Butthead knew what's up. No future.
 
2012-05-30 12:55:44 AM
Ween's gone flaccid?
 
2012-05-30 12:59:19 AM
Why did he have to quit so suddenly? A person can ween off something slowly you know - see if they like it first...
 
2012-05-30 01:00:23 AM
Buenos.

Tardes.

Amigos.
 
2012-05-30 01:00:44 AM
One of my favourite bands to see live and I spin the Mollusk, White Pepper, Chocolate and Cheese, and Quebec pretty regularly to this day. Hell, the last time I saw them I thought Gene was looking better (slightly) and thought they played well.

Such is life but it's a shame in my opinion.
 
2012-05-30 01:02:47 AM
I have a sad.
 
2012-05-30 01:06:31 AM
I saw them get booed off the stage by a bunch of meathead fratboys, opening up for Foo Fighters. They were awesome and funny...

Jawbreaker. Now that was a good band.

Damn, La Cooch was kind of a sour note to go out on.

Marvelous Clouds is decent little album by the way.
 
2012-05-30 01:21:44 AM
Heard of them. Never bothered to listen to them.

Have they put anything good out? Because if so, it's not on Youtube.
 
2012-05-30 01:39:10 AM

Cosmk: Buenos.

Tardes.

Hola, my good friend

FirstNationalBastard: 12 Golden Country Greats was farking wonderful.


I'm not a Ween fan really, but that is one of the finest country albums ever made. It's just stellar from start to finish.
 
2012-05-30 01:55:30 AM
Look, look at the tree.
What a beautiful tree.

\V-town represents.
 
2012-05-30 01:57:14 AM
So they're pushing the little daisies?

/sorry, only song of theirs I know


mactobain: sigdiamond2000: one of the best live bands ever.

I've never seen them, but I had a friend (and by "friend" I mean an acquaintance who my girlfriend cheated on me with) who went to one of their shows on acid. He said it was the most horrifying experience of his life.

Goddammitsomuch. Every other year since La Cooch, there have been tantalizing little stories popping up talking about how Dean & Gene are right on the verge of releasing a new album. Every time I'd see one of them I'd get really anxious because I knew somehow it was going to be their last album. I guess we don't get that now.

If he's really being a dick about this as some rumors suggest, then I hope tonight sees Gener crying in his sleep.
 
2012-05-30 02:17:10 AM
glad i was able to see them live if just once
 
2012-05-30 02:50:56 AM
Awesome Sound
/paint the town brown live version
//not an epic fan otherwise
///they're cool, don't get me wrong, just not my cup o tea

thebadmitton: glad i was able to see them live if just once


I managed it once, on their website they said it was one of their worst shows ever : (
My buddy(really a hardcore fan) that took me along was half pissed that it went so "meh" and disliked what amounted to the band's review of the crowd, because that's what they blamed, the crowd. That's poor showmanship no matter how you try to spin it.
 
2012-05-30 02:52:17 AM
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

But but but I LOVE WEEN!!!!

/I has a sad so big right now
 
2012-05-30 03:20:17 AM
Apparently, I'm going to be the first person to point out that it's quite a coincidence that this news comes right on the tail of the release of his solo album. These announcements happen ALL THE TIME in order to drum up publicity. For example, Slash and co. announcing they're on the verge of announcing Velvet Revolver's new singer right when their solo albums are being released; Aerosmith announcing that they're breaking up and everyone's really mad at Steven Tyler for doing American Idol (though the band ended up playing on the finale), Omar Rodriguez-Lopez hinting at an At The Drive-In reunion when his solo album was released. The list goes on and on. I'll believe it when they're both dead.

awww fark no. I was just starting to rediscover them. Best experience with them was when I saw them play a small venue located in the Minnesota Zoo. It was a very fitting location.
 
2012-05-30 05:28:11 AM
Looking forward to seeing them with the Violent Femmes supported by the Dead Milkmen on the 2013 "Bands You Listened To For Six Months In The Early 90s Before Losing Interest " tour.
 
2012-05-30 05:48:53 AM
Seemed to be heading in this direction for awhile.... Damn shame... Great live band... I will miss them.
 
2012-05-30 07:32:05 AM
I had no idea about the fishing biz. I would have figured Dean would have gone touring with whatever band Josh Homme is doing at the moment.
 
2012-05-30 07:40:02 AM
The second best live show I've ever seen (Porcupine Tree was 1st). I saw them play in a dive bar in what must have been 110 degree weather in the middle of the summer in Tallahassee FL. They played for 2 hours straight, took a half hour break and came back for another hour and a half. Dean is a guitar monster God!
 
2012-05-30 07:50:59 AM
Damn... sad.
 
2012-05-30 08:12:02 AM
They will be back.

Keep releasing Shibola type albums at least.

The Mods were busy eating two beef chimmies.
 
2012-05-30 08:20:39 AM
I don't get Ween. Then again, I don't do drugs, either.
 
2012-05-30 08:22:17 AM
About a week ago I realized they were still together. I guess I jinxed it.
 
2012-05-30 08:24:37 AM
I remember never seeing them.
 
2012-05-30 08:28:28 AM

Goonie_Goo_Goo: I don't get Ween. Then again, I don't do drugs, either.


You haven't listened to Ween in a long time have you?
 
2012-05-30 08:34:41 AM
Perhaps somebody got too close to his fantasy?
 
2012-05-30 08:56:59 AM
I loves me some Ween, but I'm fine with this. You don't want 50-year-olds doing "Touch my Tooter" in concert.


La Cucaracha was a nice send-off and I wish them well.
 
2012-05-30 10:16:07 AM
I'm really bummed I've never gotten to see them live.
