WEEN Paintin' the Town Brown Live 1990-1998

Culled from some nine years worth of tapes, Paintin' the Town Brown comes close to approximating the full gonzo brilliance of a Ween live date - granted, there's nothing quite like the experience of being there in the flesh, watching Deaner and Gener guzzling Jack Daniels while the Scotchgard-addled masses look on adoringly, but it's a fine substitute. The two-disc set (also available on three chocolate-coloured vinyl LPs) covers all of the duo's stage incarnations, from their earliest appearances (backed only by a drum machine) to the full band assembled in support of "The Mollusk"; the set list is admirably eclectic, forgoing fan favourites like & "Push th' Little Daisies" and "Buenos Tardes Amigo" in lieu of non-album obscurities including "Mountain Dew", "Cover It with Gas and Set It on Fire" and "Vallejo". The highlights are a string of tunes from the now-legendary 1996 tour featuring Bobby Ogdin and the Shit Creek Boys, a group of ace Nashville session men originally tapped to record Ween's classic 12 Golden Country Greats album.
