Legendary band The No Talent Ass Clowns opened up about working in the recording studio. Singer Lars Gunblade acknowledged the difficulty of writing songs, admitting it can take him up to an hour to write a song. Guitarist Vas Defrens recounted the difficulties they had with a midget band recording next door.

Much was made of the band’s infamous “Ass on Demand” album. Gunblade declared that the song “In My Mind’s Ass” truly defined the band’s style. “We think about ass a lot. Who doesn’t?” asked the singer after the interview.

The segment begins with some recently discovered fan home video of the band’s 1995 concert at Gacy Arena in Waterloo, Iowa. “I remember that concert mostly because I had shat my pants just as we walked out onstage but I couldn’t change clothes till the show was over. Not the best memory in the world if you don’t like that sort of thing.”

    I was a recording engineer on their second album Pucker Factor. The Ass Clowns are total dicks. I mean, really horrible people. Vas seems like a nice guy in these interviews but he’s actually worse than Lars in some ways. Once when I crawled behind a control panel to run down a wire, Vas whipped it out and peed on me. I got the last laugh though because I sold the clothes I was wearing that day on eBay for $50,000 because they were covered with Vas’ urine so that drove the bidding way up.

    I can’t find “Ass on Demand” on Amazon. WTF?

    I like the ass on the cover of the CD. A lot.

    I’m so glad that they finally tore down the Gacy Arena in 2000. When it came out that John Wayne Gacy was killing people in Waterloo, having an arena named after him was super embarrassing to say the least.

    Ass on Demand was definitely very ass-driven. I liked “In My Mind’s Ass” a lot but I think “Ass Me Why” felt like they were phoning it in.
