Ween Explain Boognish, Show Off New Hope In Rarely Circulated Clip From 1987’s “The Ween Movie”

A few years ago a page appeared on Facebook for “Boognish Rising,” a Ween documentary that’s “in the works but the release date is uncertain at this point.” Recently the page’s owner has been sharing incredible audio, photographic and video gems from Ween’s near 30-year history.

Yesterday, an eight-minute clip from 1987 surfaced showing Deaner and Gener walking around their hometown of New Hope, Pennsylvania and explaining their band. Here’s more info…

In the summer of 1987 Ween filmed a short movie with friend and director Tom Nichols. They were planning on releasing it alongside Axis: Bold As Boognish, but it never happened. Here is a little preview. Big thanks to Gene Ween for the footage! The song is Opus 51 Fugue Trilogy in A.

Now, feast your eyes on the clip…

  1. It’s too bad they called it quits, or well… Geener did. I guess all good things must come to an end. Besides, “La Cucaracha” was their first album I found entirely disappointing. So maybe it was time.

    I’ll always have “Pure Guava.”

  2. This is exactly what people need to see and remember, everyone flourishes brilliance, the real question is why is that not happening today, there is very few new ween bands, the boognish has not been able to communicate with the youth lately, is there a block? Or is it some sort of gestation?

  3. Brilliant footage – cheers for sharing – can’t wait to see more footage – and maybe some official releases of early demos/songs
