Album Review: Weezer - Hurley (Epitah)

Weezer - Hurley (Epitah)

Every time a new Weezer album comes out the number of people bearing residual good will towards them slowly shrinks (especially when they don’t send out any review copies until the album’s actually bloody out). It’s a pleasure to report,...

Album review: Weezer - 'Raditude'

Album review: Weezer - 'Raditude'

Rivers Cuomo is a deeply weird individual. After the spectacular success of Weezer ’s 1994 debut album – which pretty much invented emo’s melodic wing – instead of embracing rock-star excess, the singer enrolled at Harvard, painted all...

The last time your correspondent saw Weezer back in 2002, they were a let-down of heartbreaking proportions. Rivers Cuomo looked like Grizzly Adams with a guitar, the rest of the band seemed scared/unwilling to do anything they weren’t told to...

Weezer : Keep Fishin'

From white-bread American geek idol to creepy-bearded internet chatroom weirdo, the peculiar metamorphosis of Rivers Cuomo has been a pretty unsettling affair. Seeing this, the nice folk at Geffen have put Damage Limitation Exercise Mk.1 in...

Ah, Mr Cuomo, come in, hop up on the couch, we're just checking your file. Interesting beard, by the way. Now let's see: chronic mysanthropy, rampant persecution complex, dropped out of rock band to run away to college , currently devoted to...

Weezer : Manchester Apollo
