The melody is simple and poppy, but the vocals are, if not sped up, then crazily falsettoed.And the repeated refrain of “push the little daisies and make em come up” is, if not annoying, certainly infectious (in many senses of the word).In Casa di Cephalis she runs around turning all the lights on (this would be the era of “When Not in Use Turn Off the Juice– I had that sticker on my light switch all through grade school and high school). Vogel starts going on about Mrs James Watt (he thinks she must have been something to look at: push pull, push pull). While he is talking, Dan looks at Vogel’s suit and realizes that it is his own.As she walks into the room in an unsubtly sexual way: “in erect silhouette against the flaccid shadows beyond” (310) she sees that her husband is home. Vogel bought it for at the thrift store (he even found a condom in the back pocket).He was released from the hospital–he looked for her there but remembered the trip to the Met. Glancy bought another suit there too (actually he split the seat of it).She is enraged already saying that Miss Moneybags (and now we know why they call her that) and Mr Vogel pretending they didn’t know what bus was what. It’s until the doctor thinks he’s strong enough to…. has been dressing like a student and spying on the teachers. There’s some talk of Augustus Montague Toplady and how he could have stayed out of jail. Gibbs, who normally doesn’t read and proscribed openings is reading the entire Constitution and homeroom won’t end until he does.I’m told some of their later records are quite good.This song from the album was my introduction to them, and it is weird and kind of irritating and strangely catchy and perfectly encapsulates Ween.
Once again they have no idea how many kids are on the trip. So Ween broke up back in May (this is the year of seemingly one-hit-wonder bands breaking up after decades of playing).
