"I Smoke Some Grass" "Mr. Mocha" & "Tastes Good On Th' Bun"

The first Ween we ever heard was "I Smoke Some Grass," placed on a mixtape from a friend, which is originally from the CD single of "Push Th' Little Daisies." We had no idea this was a b-side until years later, and since we've discovered the full song title is actually "I Smoke Some Grass (And Get Really Really High)." Being 14 in 1994 with no money and no internet access, the song seemed like a new world of weirdness that was pretty much exactly what was needed in our lives at the time... We desperately needed to hear more, and so Pure Guava was ordered on cassette from the BMG catalog not long afterwards, and for a couple years, this was our only Ween.

Pure Guava outtakes are always among the most special ones for us. The sound of their LP's are all somewhat specific, and we're always willing to welcome a few unheard tracks from around the same time...
