  • Cover It With Gas : Put Your Boobs On

    52:58
    For the second instalment of our Cover it With Gas and Set on Fire Ween cover series we turn to Eli Schwab and the rest of the Can I Thwipp It Boys (Manus Dunbar and Zach Johnson) for a truly inspired take on the deepest of Ween cuts, "Put Your Boobs On." Members of the Ween community will know Eli from his incredible work with the Weenzine but may not be aware of his lyrical stylings. He and Manus, an accomplished MC in his own right, deliver verses drenched in Ween imagery and comical cosmic punchlines all anchored by Zach's silky but ugent production, a beat Dr. Dre would be proud to call his own. So come take a ride with us, and put your motherfucking boobs on!Learn more about the Thwipp It Boys!http://canithwippit.libsyn.com/Also on spotify and Apple Podcastshttps://youtube.com/channel/UCyTdxjh26Sx3qOwWNYCqWowThe titular cover: https://youtu.be/WlErNC1T_e0Eli Schwab@cosmiclion on insta https://cosmiclionproductions.com/Manus Dunbar@manusdunbar@janmichaelvintage insta https://music.apple.com/us/artist/manus/1197024461https://open.spotify.com/artist/0Jxvyzb4OMAPe5M8sDQhKAZack Johnson@zzackjohnson insta https://m.twitch.tv/zzackjohnson?desktop-redirect=true

    God Ween Evan is back with a new Ween cover series we are calling Cover It With Gas & Set It On Fire! We put out the call to the Ween fan community and received numerous kick ass Ween covers, but none more inspired than our first selection: Eli Wing's "Tender Situation." Eli Wing is a Ween fan and musician based in the Netherlands who records under the name Hushed Hands and his take on Ween’s beloved bromance ballad "Tender Situation" is ethereal and devastatingly beautiful. Please enjoy his effort and our lovely conversation.  Listen to more from (Hushed Hands) on Bandcamp: https://hushedhands.bandcamp.com/

  • GWE — The Interviews: Eric Slick (Dr. Dog)

    01:15:04
    God Ween Evan continues its periodic interview series, where someone in or around Ween and the Ween community chews the fat with the team. Next up is singer, songwriter, and drummer Eric Slick. Slick is often recognized as a drummer with rock acts including Dr Dog and Natalie Prass, but to label this octopoidal beast a simple tub thumper does a disservice to his immense musical talent. His first LP Palisades dropped in 2017 and revealed a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter with ambitions beyond the four on the floor. In 2018 he released the Bullfighter EP, a dense four song cycle anchored by a string quartet and rounded off by electronics, percussion and distant piano crashes. In June, he is set to release another solo album, a topic discussed in this episode, as well as his ties to Ween (trying out for the band, working with Deaner on music during quarantine, etc.), epic Thanksgiving jams at John & Peter's, the most fire bars Brian Wilson ever spit, and more!Learn more about Eric's diverse and exciting projects at: http://www.ericslick.com/.
