Ween raids archives, preps coloring book

CD/DVD set of North Carolina show available Nov. 11

NEW YORK -- Ween has raided its archives for a CD/DVD set chronicling a Dec. 9, 1992, show at the Cat's Cradle in Chapel Hill, N.C., as well as the band's first tour of Holland. The set is due Nov. 11 via Ween's own Chocodog label.

Beyond early '90s-era favorites like "Big Jilm," "You F*cked Up," "Fat Lenny" and "Don't Get 2 Close (2 My Fantasy," the Chapel Hill show includes a rendition of "Buckingham Green" several years before the song eventually appeared on the album "The Mollusk."

The DVD blends performances from the Vera club in Groningen, Holland, with material taped at WTSR radio in Trenton, N.J., and Stache's in Columbus, Ohio.

In other Ween news, the group has commissioned a coloring book drawn by Thea Wolfe, which will be available in time for the holiday season via its Web site. "If there was a better Christmas gift for a Ween fan then I don't know what it is," guitarist Mickey "Dean Ween" Melchiondo writes on Ween's site.
