Uranus or Bust
was written and recorded in fits and starts between 1996 and 1998, mostly fits. Despite its fatuous
asks a serious question:
what happens when man stares into the abyss and instead of staring back the abyss
kicks him in the balls. And speaking of balls, the cover -
which depicts a mushroom headed woman using her laser vision eyes to
flash fry an astronaut's groin - is the product of the diseased mind of
otherwise a well-known artist.
Onan Spilled his Seed:
After eight full innings of play, it remains Satan 6, God 2.
Small Engine Repair:
This one's for all our friends
whose lives just haven't amounted to very much. Or it would be, if we had any friends.
: Sounds like something Steve Miller would have done,
had he suffered from dementia.
A yeasty morsel with a happy riff "unconsciously influenced"
by The Kingston Trio.
Dumber than Me: Music by D Maynard. This doesn't sound like any other Weasel song;
many critics agree this is a good thing.
Harvey Loped Along
: A wholesome idea for a nice little story about cute little bunnies, corrupted. If Eddie Munster had a band,
this is what it would sound like.
Hall of Pain:
A cautionary tale about a poor boy hanged for murder,
even though all his victims probably had it coming.
And sure, go ahead say it: Beatles. So what?
At least it's better than Oasis.
: Sort of a tango here, or maybe a foxtrot?
Anyway, the moral is that you'll catch more flies with water and vinegar
than with honey and vinegar, fnaar.
Monument Road: Eugenics in Vermont. Features a real Russian, for authenticity.
A Million Vacations
: The dissonance in the guitar lines was intended to emulate the grating
effects that psychotics experience. A true story.
A brassy game-show intro rapidly degenerates into a sinister
6/8 tale of gothic romance. Nineteenth century english gothic mind you,
not the kind where dysfunctional teens put on too much
make-up and pierce their labias.
Where’s Bob Crane?: He's over there in the rutabagas.
The Larry Trilogy, part deux.
This big pile of gold? said the Swiss banker. Well, it's certainly not gold fillings
given to us for safe keeping by Nazis until such time as they need it to finance
more gas chambers, if that's what you're insinuating.
Rachel: Crabs the size of sparrows is probably a little mean-spirited; she did piss bisque though.
: If Marshall Applewhite's spaceship had a cocktail
lounge, the combo would be playing this song.
Recorded live in front of a dead audience.
