Z-Rock Hawaii

Holy Shit.


Mindflaying collaboration between Ween and Boredoms.  If you’re even passingly familiar with either band, you’ve probably jumped out of your seat already.  It’s no gargantuan achievement; just an exciting smash up of the two groups’ extreme sensibilities, satisfying anyone remotely interested in such a project.  Scatalogical, free-associative lyricism pollinates a gritty crushing tribal punk garden, runaway train hyperactivity collides with relaxed stoner funk, and bone crunching guitar and drums fight it out under warped extraterrestrial sunny skies.

Picture a Venn diagram with Dean and Gene Ween in one circle, and Yamantaka Eye and company in the other.  The overlap, and then some, is what this album sounds like.  Turn this up loud and pay no heed to your exploding brain.

  1. Awesome write up!

    I bought this album on a trip to the west coast in 1997. I picked it up at record store at Venice beach. When I handed it to the cashier he snarkily remarked to his female coworker “see, this guy is down on the Z-ROCK T-I-P”… she just shook her head. I’m guessing a previous conversation or listening exposure had taken place.

    O-T is right about paying no mind to your exploding brain… just be sure to watch for smoke releasing from the top of your amplifier…

    Grab this album now!
