And the repeated refrain of “push the little daisies and make em come up” is, if not annoying, certainly infectious (in many senses of the word).
The other fun thing about Ween is that in addition to pretty much none of their albums sounding alike, pretty much none of their songs sound alike.
But because the pulses are so mechanically timed it didn’t even register as noises while as fast forwarded.
I finally had to turn it up pretty loud before I heard all of it.
There are still loud drums, but the pace is slower and less manic. They sound like some of Metallica’s chanting voices on later albums.
The final song, “Of Wolves and Withdrawal” is almost 9 minutes of very quiet noises that grow louder in pulses.
Nevertheless, this is about as far from black metal as you can get and still be dark and scary. It has been frequently anthologized, however, which makes it a pretty important story.
There’s a reason why I like to read author’s works in chronological order, and reading this story now confirms that for me.
But they didn’t happen very often or for very long and Yunior tried to forget it.
So Ween broke up back in May (this is the year of seemingly one-hit-wonder bands breaking up after decades of playing).
It seems to be three sections of different pulsing sounds.
