Ween - Caesar

Attn. people I know that are Ween fans: A few months ago Dean/Mickey released these demos from the Quebec recording sessions (at the time the album was going to be called "Caesar"). I've been listening to them over and over and they are excellent. You can download them here:



Some more info that popped up on the Ween forum (you will need to label the tracks yourself)

Deaner posted these on facebook on August 11, 2011. He had the files on chocodog but it got bombarded, so he fb messaged me and asked me to call him. I told him about megaupload (and he agreed that it is much faster and better than yousendit) and he told me to "do the dirty work" and post it in the right places. I also asked him when exactly these were recorded. And he told me. We also talked about Bootsy Collins and my blog, which you should be checking out if you like funk music: http://funkit.virose.net/?p=914

Special thanks to Deaner for being cool as shit and giving his fans special treats like this. We are truly spoiled.

Notes from Deaner:

ween-caesar (we were calling this record that until the last moment when we decided to change the title to "quebec")

well what can i say about this here, lemme see. the first thing that comes to mind is that all the while we were doing this we still had claude coleman on drums, he eventually got into a major car wreck and wasn't around when it finally came time to make the "real" record. instead the drum duties fell on me, josh freese, and sim cain for a couple of tunes. almost all of this was recorded at our beach house in holgate, nj onto 16 track tape. a tiny bit of it was recorded in the garage behind aaron's house in pt. pleasant, pa. some of it was recorded in the spare bedroom of my house in new hope. most of the tunes are just me and aaron, with the two of us playing everything, with me on drums. the songs with claude, dave, and glenn are pretty obvious. on just a few tunes we took what you hear here and cleaned them up and had andrew weiss mix them for the record after some overdubs. dave sings on "it's gonna be a long night", this was days before he had surgery to remove polyps in his throat and his voice was really rough so we figured he was the guy for the job. This isn't even all of the tunes that we ended up choosing from, just the ones i happened to burn to cd before we drove home from the beach every week. hope you dig it for what it is.

I know, right? While a Buy Archeage Gold thin drive is cool and all, I'd much rather have more space in something the size of a deck of RS Gold cards than less space in something slightly smaller. Even my caveman mind can understand that if you make something that Archeage Gold has 1/4 the capacity of something else, it Cheap Archeage Gold will probably be 1/4 smaller.
