Gene and Dean Ween recorded The Pod and Pure Guava at "the Pod," a fly-ridden shack they shared on a horse farm on Van Sant Road in Solebury Township.

They recorded both albums on a Tascam 4-track, and according to Deaner, they didn't even bother buying new tapes for Pure Guava but simply recorded over demo tapes that other bands had given them on the road.

This is arguably the band's "brown"-est period- a term they devised to describe anything "f*cked up in a good way."

As their producer and sometimes bass player Andrew Weiss put it:

"...you know, stuff's always so well-orchestrated, or tries to be, when people make records, but the best sound you're gonna get out of stomp box is when the battery's right at the point of dying and it sounds like it's being strangled or something. So it's kind of like those glorious mistakes are what you're lookin' for."
