Will Ween Still Be Seen?

Ween made several memorable albums, but Gene and Dean Ween had but one real commercial triumph. In 1993, the catchy "Push th' Little Daisies" was all over MTV and a huge smash Down Under. There was a promo only CD single and 12" that included two fairly funny cleaned up versions of the song without a certain four-letter word that rhymes with "sit."

A few months ago, I read in the Wall Street Journal that Gene released an interesting album based on the music of Rod McKuen. Soon after, he announced the end of Ween. Dean fired back that it was news to him. I have to admit I haven't followed the band for many years, but I always liked knowing they were still out there somewhere.
