Ween: Weird as Ever with 'La Cucaracha'
Ween, the really weird music duo, has had people laughing and scratching their heads since the mid-1980s.
Dean and Gene Ween started out in a basement with a four-track recorder. They became college radio darlings, and their latest album debuted at No. 69 on the Billboard charts.
The band is opposed to digital recording techniques. Smooth-jazz saxophonist David Sanborn is featured on one of the songs, but they can make mariachi, reggae, and rockabilly sound like they grew up together.
Ween's latest, La Cucaracha, is a collection of really, really weird songs about love, dinner parties and horse racing.
