Even If You Don’t

Ween Even If You Don't Mushroom


Even If You Don’t(Mushroom)

Like The Wombles, [a]Ween[/a] recycle rubbish for their own sick ends.

Fronted by two brothers, Dean and Gene, they finally seem to have

outgrown satirising country music and writing songs about poo, and have moved

onto something vaguely more serious. As the video for this song comes courtesy of
Matt and Trey of[I] South Park[/I] fame, such a claim is ultimately

relative, but ‘Even If You Don’t’ is an entertaining mid-’70s FM rock

song. It might be another pastiche (the lyrics claim they’re “rooting through the garbage for treasures in the trash

pile”), but at least it’s a good one.
