This bums me out, though I guess I should feel thankful that I got to see them live so many times and that they've recorded so many albums. A 20 year run is fantastic for a band that consistently did their own thing, even to the detriment of their commercial standing. I mean, pulling stunts like 12 Golden Country Greats can often end a band.
wow this hit me hard. They were my favorite band in college. saw them so many times. such an amazing live band. can't say I'm too surprised. when i caught them on their last tour they didn't really seem too enthused, and after that stunt in Vancouver in 2010...
well I'm glad to call myself a fan and to say I've seen them so many times. i'll miss you gener and deaner!
Former Ween frontman Aaron Freeman has unveiled a new song on his SoundCloud and it’s one that will no doubt stir up speculation amongst his longtime dedicated fanbase. Titled “Genene”, the soft-spoken, Leonard Cohen-vibing track suggests a personal gender reassignment with its stark lyricism: “Genene, wake up and see the day / The operation’s through, we’re so very proud of you / Genene, the transformation’s done, you’re truly born again.”
“This song is left to interpretation on purpose,” Freeman explained (via Hidden Track). “To me it’s just an honest song about where I’m at, creepy, real and pretty, just the way I like it. On one hand, it’s about change and acceptance on a personal, spiritual level but can obviously be interpreted literally as a sex change.”
Whether or not Mr. Freeman follows Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace is up for the future to decide. In the meantime, stream the track below and assess the plausible scenarios yourself.
god.damn.it.Gene. Just get you some big juicy tiddeys then and bring back the mawfawkin' Ween! I'm still not sure if he's just doing all of this just to fvck with us.
