Ween - "Back To Basom"

A lot of people have the wrong idea about Ween. They think they are just a "joke" band or some such nonsense. Ween is one of the best, most original, and most inventive rock bands in the world. And while they can put out a "joke" song from time to time most of their stuff is just plain brilliant and what in some of their songs people may see as a joke - I see as absurdity.

This particular song "Back To Basom" is one of the many great tracks from 2000's White Pepper (a bit of a nod to The Beatles The White Album & Sgt Pepper)

Back To Basom is a bit of an outerspace pop song something like David Bowie's Space Oddity. It has some really wild synth breakdowns and shifting moods. Like most Ween songs there are some really absurd twisted lyrics and a really awesome and at time swirling soundscape which keeps the song indefinitly interesting to listen to and a real trip as the kids may say.

I'm not really sure what this song is about - but I think it's about some sort of space traveller who wants to return to Basom. Whatever that is. Anyways - that doesn't really matter. Just get a bit loaded and listen to this album. Highly recommended.
