Dan and the Bups
Dan and the Bups
After a lengthy hiatus, the pair wrote 'Queef, Queef, Queef' and released the album. There were still many doubts about continuing for another album. It took 'hemeroid Harry' to convince them they would be able to write more songs. With renewed energy they immediately started on their next project. In the 2002/2003 year, work on the album that would become 'Camel Jockeys' was well in progress.
This was poised to be the 4th album, but work on the album stopped. Work on another project 'Ode to Craig' began. The rock opera about Craig T. Nelson and his character on coach, was originally planed to be a lengthy song to appear on 'Camel Jockeys.' it was then decided to make it into its own album.
' Ode to Craig' became the forth album, and the worst recieved album to that time. 'Camel Jockeys' was finished quickly after, and recieved much greater praise. The 4th and 5th Album marked a profound change in the style of Dan and the Bups. For the first time studio techniques were being used on the songs. It also marked the end of the Bupmunks.When gearing up for their next project, there was again the problem of ideas for songs.
The solution was the satiracle 'Hear-Say Heresy.' The incredibly vulgar album was praised, and more importantly managed to offend people like never before for a Bups album. 'Fine Fannie Flagg' was another success. The tracks 'Kevin Bacon' and 'We Gotta Kill That Fetus' were huge favorites among the Bups fans. Along with strong songs, the Coach 4000 schticks that replaced the Bupmunks were getting some attention. The McDonald's Coach has gone on to be the most popular Coach 4000 episode.
Beethoven 4000 is also worth noting. Felling good, the Bups made another stab at a concept album. It would become 'Working It! A Musical Experience." By far the longest album, it featured Stephen Flanagan's personal favorite Bup song 'Work it in The Future.' But like Ode to Craig, it gained only minor popularity. The Bups then rebounded with their massive success, 'The Smoothest Album...EVER.' The album featured the hits 'Diane's', 'I Need You', and 'Goat Party.' It also contained 'I Gotta Go.' The Bups loved the song, but none of the fans seemed to agree. 'Dan and the Bups 4000' was the landmark 10th album for the group. and the pair are currently working on their 11th. The Bups songs will soon be available for download in their full, but The Bup is really tired of uploading the entire catalogue so...the end.
