I just got my copy of this book about a week ago. Mickey wrote the forward for this book and of course Ween is featured in it.  Their first live show was opening for the Butthole Surfers on May 3, 1987. They continued to open for many bands like the Ramones, 7 Seconds, Killing Joke, and many more. Mickey says that at one point they were playing there about twice a month, and he also worked there as a teenager in exchange for free admission. Ween also happened to be the last show that Randy Now booked on December 2, 1994. They were the headlining band for that final show.

Here is some rare footage from our farmhouse/studio. The video is glitchy and the audio gets messed up at one point. I plugged my headphone mix feed into the camcorder so the audio is hi-fi anyway. This is Gene ween getting in touch with his feminine side singing “Slow Down Boy” from our “Friends e.p.”

It’s Equal Pay Day – a day that shows how far into 2013 women must work to earn what men earned in 2012. After all, women still make just 77 cents to a man’s dollar. This gender gap affects women (and their families) from all backgrounds, ages, and at all levels of education – and it’s unacceptable. 

Re-blogging because (unfortunately) this is still a thing.

"So anyway, all I wanted to do was be in bands. That’s all I wanted to do. I was so bummed out because rock bands do not want girls in their band at all. There were just no girls in the band in Dayton, Ohio. Even Pollard from Guided By Voices would say ‘no bleeders.’ And he’s acting like he’s joking but everyone knows he’s not joking. ‘No bleeders in the band.’ So I always just wanted to be in bands and no one around here would play."

This is one of my favorite tv clips of us. “Pure guava” was still a new record and we had just written this song. I think this is one of our last performances as a duo. This was filmed early in the morning and we were very stoned.

Aaron and I filmed this one ourselves and played the song live. Probably the only good video we ever made.
