Rarely does one encounter a two-piece that is just a bass and drums combo. While admittedly a huge fan of Ween (and almost everything they do) my apprehension was high when I saw this record, I wasn't sure what bassist Dave Dreiwitz was going to accomplish with only a drummer backing him up. Boy was I wrong. With a thunderous down-tuned bass that almost defies logic in its heaviness paired with Scott Byrne's booming percussion, Instant Death surf the boundaries of pop, funk, sludge, fuzz and noise with their middle finger firmly inserted up their ass. Goofy lyrics and vocals make this one a real treat - no one's taking this one too seriously and if you do you're missing the point. Enjoy.
