Leave us your thoughts on the Weasel in the COMMENTS section (where you'll find the Punk Rock Superheroes link).


  1. http://www.mediafire.com/?dpmm3jfvafwcmc3

  2. Saw some of yesterdays comments regarding the Weasel's charming and chivalrous behavior. It's good to remember sometimes that Gandhi beat his wife. He went on to achieve greatness in spite of it, as did another serial wife beater, John Lennon. I doubt the Weeze will get that far but more power to 'im.

    1. Everyone's imperfect but when someone does something everyone knows is wrong and then, essentially, defends it as his 'character' it blurs the lines.

  3. I wish "Devil at McDonalds" and "You're so boring" had been cleaned up and put onto an album. And the alternate opening to Jockpunk is pretty great. lol.

    In Richmond VA most clubs have bouncers that kick you out for getting too drunk and making a scene, or fucking with the band. If SxSW had a decent bouncer then the girl wouldn't have gotten punched and nobody would even be talking about this shit. Also would everyone be up in arms if Ben punched a drunk dude in the face? Probably not, it just would've been funny.

    1. Well he only tried to punch the women, when the guys showed up he all of a sudden went limp.

  4. anyone who has these demos/live weasel 86-87 material and is willing to make me a cdr or two of it all, plese email me. I will be eternally grateful!
