On September 14th, 2001, seminal alternative rock band Ween were faced with a conundrum: should they go on with the re-release party they had planned for their 1990 album GodWeenSatan: The Oneness? With all of the turmoil in the world after the horrific attacks on September 11th just three days prior, the band was simply unsure if they a concert or party was the right move. The band decided to take the stage at their local New Hope, PA bar, John & Peter’s, and play through the pain and the anger. What resulted is the stuff of legend, a powerful cover-to-cover rendition of the album in its entirety in front of a capacity crowd.“There was a sense of raw emotion the night of the show. It had been only a few days since the towers had fallen, and everyone in the world had been glued to their TVs,” explains Dean Ween in a press release. “As we walked onto the stage the crowd was in a daze, but we came to play that night and needed to deliver in a big way. It was very cathartic on both sides of the stage, for both band and audience.”He continues, “Remarkably, that night, we were able to conjure up the spirit we had when we originally wrote these songs – some dating back to 1985. I have never heard Gener sing as hard as he did that night. He was screaming, just like he did when we cut the record. I broke out my old 1958 Fender Musicmaster – the same one I had played on GWS.”The show was never released to the public, however, thanks to a 24-track tape recording, Ween fans can now hear this legendary set for the first time. The band have announced that GodWeenSatan Live will be released on November 16th. The album, which contains the full recording of that magical night in New Hope, will be released as a double LP pressed onto 180g white vinyl. This marks Ween’s first new release since 2008.Explains Deaner, “9/14/01 was a very special night for Ween, a time way before it was trendy for bands to perform an album live in its entirety. It seemed like a good idea at the time, and now we’re pretty sure it was.”You can pre-order GodWeenSatan Live at this link. See below for the album’s art.
Experimental afrobeat/funk act Big Mean Sound Machine is heading out on tour next week, and for a major purpose at that. The Ithaca, New York-based group has announced they will be partnering up with the Campaign for NY Health with a goal of building support to finally pass the NY Health Act—a bill that is currently one co-sponsor shy of passing a law that would guarantee Medicare to all New York State residents.Big Mean Sound Machine made the announcement via their Facebook page. Check out the full statement below:Very excited to announce that we are teaming up with Bella’s Bartok and the Campaign for New York Health to help build support for the New York Health Act, a bill in the state legislature which would guarantee health care to all New York state residents regardless of age, wealth, place of employment, or immigration status for our Fall Tour!Since its inception, one of the core values of Big Mean Sound Machine has been to bring people and communities together in celebration and healing through music and dance. In these wild times, we feel it is important for musicians and artists to stand up for our creative communities. After reading this bill and reflecting on the state of healthcare in this country, especially compared to that of other first world nations, we feel it imperative that people be made aware of how healthcare reform could truly benefit everybody; and what better place to start than in the beautiful state of New York which we proudly call home. The New York Health Act has passed the state assembly the past three years in a row and is one state senate co-sponsor short of majority support. We are actually very close to making universal health care a reality in New York and we hope that the feelings of community, compassion, solidarity and freedom generated at our live shows can spill over to help raise awareness of what a equitable and more affordable health care system that benefits all of us could look like.NY HEALTH ACT INFO >>> nyhcampaign.orgFor tickets and more information one BMSM’s Fall tour, check out the band’s website.Big Mean Sound Machine Fall Tour Dates9.15 | Oneonta, NY | B Side Ballroom & Supper Club9.16 | Rochester, NY | Rochester Fringe Festival10.6 | Northampton, MA | Pearl Street Nightclub Ballroom*10.7 | Fairfield, CT | StageOne10.20 | Ithaca, NY | The Haunt10.21 | Pittsburgh, PA | The Rex Theater10.27 | Saranac Lake, NY | Waterhole10.28 | Rochester, NY | Funk ‘n Waffles Music Hall11.3 | Apalachin, NY | Ransom Steele Tavern*11.4 | Kingston, NY | BSP Kingston11.17 | Buffalo, NY | Buffalo Iron Works*11.18 | Syracuse, NY | Funk ‘n Waffles Downtown*12.1 | Raleigh, NC | The Pour House Music Hall12.2 | Asheville, NC | Asheville Music Hall12.9 | Albany, NY | The Hollow Bar + Kitchen12.15 | Brooklyn, NY | Brooklyn Bazaar12.16 | Boston, MA | Middle East Restaurant and Nightclub**with Bella’s Bartok
