MonoNeon, the eccentric musician who held the honor of being Prince’s last bassist, has just released a brand-new EP today in honor of National Weed Day. As to be expected, the release titled Welcome 2 Whateva The Fyuck captures his innovative spirit across the six bizarre and twisted pop-tinged tracks. The songs are simultaneously catchy and sonically rebellious, making the collection an intriguing one to listen through. It also features one song featuring A Weirdo From Memphis, “America’s Perverted Gentlemen,” a previously released song with a similarly boundary-pushing music video, that was debuted following the release of MonoNeon’s Selfie Quickie 2WOOO earlier in the year.
It is abundantly clear that the bassist is not too concerned with those who many be off put by his music, instead recognizing the legion of fans who are down to get down. As he notes about his music and Welcome 2 Whateva The Fyuck, “It’s whatever the fyuck you want it to be.” You can stream Welcome 2 Whateva The Fyuck below or on MonoNeon’s Bandcamp, where it’s available for download at a name-your-price rate.
