Ween band retires: Gene Ween reverts to Aaron Freeman and releases Rod McKuen tribute album produced by sitcom svengali

Dean will continue to occupy himself vis a vis leading chartered fishing expeditions. Perhaps Dean will reassemble The Moist Boyz at some point. I imagine Dean is relieved now that he does not have to concern himself with yet another of Gene's inconveniently timed return holidays on Rehab Mountain.





She is listening to Eros Ramazzotti.
The Little Tough Guy Bandaged Hands
Album. She says it reminds her of hot
summers in Italy and along the coasts
of France. I say to her, that were, or those
to come? She answers both & turns the
music up. I turn the conversation down.
July's end is still some distance off.


The sun will not relent, even in morning.
Some boys came by yesterday while I
was still asleep with sleep and dreaming.
I dream too much. I sleep too little.
It is the pasta. It's the wine. The summer
Humming past us to the borderline.

When I got up she was in the yard
playing softball with the tall one and his
older friend who doesn't say much.
I would have joined them but three's
a team, I guess, and four a crowd.
In the mirror I look flushed or sunburnt.
out of sorts. I am, sort of. Some days
I imagine love, just to keep from
screaming Come over Here, Here
I am, to no one in particular.

I wish Bimby hadn't lost the pensione
and gone away. I hear her grousing still
Nothing is permanent in Italy, only the
ruins and the tourists and the taxes. Only
the summers she might have added. Eros
of one kind or some other plays them on.
Some church bells have convinced me
that God is part of all of this. It Could
be so. When I am sleeping on my own,
as I most always am, I am apt to sense
some breathing on the pillow next to
mine. It is the next best thing to arms
around some great pretend.

Maurizio has come up from Naples.
They are laughing in the kitchen fixing
dinner. Lots of extra virgin olive oil, good
greens, artichokes and bottles of red stuff
that's meant to pass for good red wine.
Liberty is useless without pocket money.

My tan line starts just above my elbows
and extends to just below my Adams apple.
Taking your shirt off with so many younger
men around is silly and alas incriminating.
All those too flat bellies, buttons out
with as yet imaginary landscapes
written on them.

Synthetic Socks is a very early recording by Gene Ween, released on TeenBeat Records in 1987. It is almost entirely the product of Gene Ween making personal recordings in his bedroom (Dean Ween appears only a few times on this cassette).

Instruments include Synsonic Drums, Korg Poly-800, piano, and reel-to-reel. Scott Lowe assisted in post production using delay and additional keyboards.

Credited as Synthetic Sox (not "Socks" as in the album title), three of the TeenBeat tracks; Tree, Sea of Mellichis, and Investigating Tornadoes were released on vinyl as part of Shadow Mouth: Compilation One, released on the Shadow Mouth Record label based in Asbury Park, New Jersey.

Synthetic Socks features a very embryonic version of Ween's trademark sound.


  1. "Baked Potatoe"
  2. "Cops"
  3. "Hence it Came (Instrumental)"
  4. "Living Together"
  5. "Once I Lived"
  6. "Anything Quickly (Instrumental)"
  7. "Get Back Here Son (take the .45)"
  8. "Gi. Go. Stop. No"
  9. "Ho Ho Ho"
 10. "Some Weird Shit"
 11. "Eurshishyshen"
 12. "Tree (Instrumental)"
 13. "Love"
 14. "Justcruisin'"
 15. "Acoustic Lawn Jam"
 16. "I Hate Snuggles"
 17. "Style of Carpet (Instrumental)"
 18. "Collectives"
 19. "Cheese Fries"
 20. "I Had A Party"
 21. "What Do You Think About a Woman?" [verification needed]
 22. "Sea Of Mellchis"
 23. "Investigating Tornadoes"
 24. "Today It Is My Birthday"
 25. "Sonata in A#G Overture (Instrumental)"
 26. "Happy Family"
 27. "School Days"
 28. "Prank Calls (Literally)"

GENE WEEN NEEDS MONEY ... NOW YOU CAN SUPPORT

Gener's Gone: The Final Demo Recordings of Gene Ween (2009-2011)

These demos represent the final writings and music of Gene Ween, before he departed and the inner FREEMAN emerged. On that note, we have received a two word personal statement from Aaron: "stay tuned."

After 20+ years of near-fatal drug & alcohol abuse (thankfully culminating with intensive but successful rehab), AARON FREEMAN (aka Gene Ween) was left in a dire financial situation. All proceeds will go directly to Aaron, as he continues down the path toward creative freedom and personal health. Payments will be processed via Aaron's manager, Dave Godowsky. Don't worry, you can trust him.

1.The Champion 04:36

2.Nature Man 02:47

3.Baby Don't Be Afraid 04:30

4.Deep Calm 03:04

5.Stay With Me Daddy 03:58

6.Gener's Gone 05:58

released 15 November 2013
