Description

Based on the colors from the Ween album: "the Pod"

Most often considered the band's "challenging album," The Pod (named for the apartment Dean & Gene shared in which all of the album's songs were recorded) is probably the band's most surreal. All of the songs have a murky, sludgy quality to them, possibly due to being recorded on a four-track, and many of the vocals are manipulated in strange ways. The lyrics are also quite druggy and bizarre. Contributing factors may have been drug use (the album notes claim that the band used Scotchgard as a recreational drug, although they have later confirmed that this was a running joke), and the fact that Dean & Gene both came down with cases of mononucleosis during the recording of the album.

The Pod has since been remastered and reissued by Elektra Records after the relative success of such Ween albums as Pure Guava and Chocolate and Cheese (At the time of the reissue, The Pod was not currently out of print on Shimmy Disc Records).

The cover art on The Pod is a takeoff of the 1975 The Best of Leonard Cohen LP record cover. Ween simply positioned a photo of Mean Ween's head (wearing a "Scotchgard bong") over Cohen's cover art and did alterations to the title and other graphics. The copy of the Leonard Cohen record that Ween used had purportedly belonged to Dean Ween's mother. The Pod, according to Ween-lore, was written under the influence of Scotchgard, but was later disproved by Gene and Dean themselves as being "the most slime-bag thing we could think of". The contraption on the album cover is not a Scotchgard inhalation device, but a bong-like device use to send THC directly to the brain by use of nitrous oxide, which was said to leave the user intoxicated for days.

The songs on this album come from two tapes made by Ween in 1991-1992. The tapes were titled the Bilboa tape and the Big Timmy Wasserman tape. Both tapes contain not only demo versions of songs on the album, but many outtakes not used on any album or tracks used on future albums.
