Record Label: Bad Diet
Bad Diet Records dialed up the modems of Free Weed & Unkle Funkle to create 199Oz. Buzz Clips. On this full-length cover album, L.A.’s Gnar-punks slam the 1990s’ greatest rock anthems, from “Pepper” to “Black Hole Sun,” like a weed grinder onto a desk of pogs…during detention!
Mount up, as we hotbox a white Bronco piloted by Star Fox and Spoon Man and roll out to a simpler era, when juveniles raided Columbia House CDs instead of Reddit posts, when Brendan Fraser’s hair wasn’t a meme, when Batman didn’t shoot dudes, and #Grunge wasn’t data-mined behind the multi-screen.
This latest BD release is Free Weed’s follow-up to 2015’s Introducing, numerous tracks from which are singled out on HBO’s acclaimed new series High Maintenance. Noisey praises Free Weed’s music as “blissed out pop.” WTH, we love Shane Smith now.
Produced by Unkle Funkle and mastered by Mikey Young (Total Control), 199Oz. Buzz Clipsfeatures covers of: Ween, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Butthole Surfers, Spacehog, and Third Eye Blind. Each track is as polished and heavy as Matt Pinfield’s dome. We guarantee it. The deluxe version, pressed on slime green vinyl, is exclusive to indie stores worldwide.
