Dean Ween Group Offers Live Debut Of 1996 Ween Rarity
In 1996 Ween teamed up with Yamantaka Eye, Seiichi Yamamoto, Yoshimi P-We and Yoshikawa Toyohito of Japanese rock band Boredoms to record and release an underrated collaborative album called Z-Rock Hawaii. On Thursday night the The Dean Ween Group debuted a live version of the LP’s opening track, “Chuggin’,” at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C.
The Dean Ween Group – which currently features Deaner and Scott Rednor on guitars, Dave Dreiwitz on bass, Glenn McClelland on keyboards and Claude Coleman Jr. on drums – stayed true to the recorded version of “Chuggin'” with the exception of the vocal yelps members of Boredoms added to the studio version. “Chuggin'” just may stick around as the Dean Ween Group performed the instrumental a second time just two nights later at The Fillmore in Charlotte.
Deaner has shared soundboard audio of “Chuggin'” from Charlotte:
Ween had never played “Chuggin'” live according to BrownBase.
