Weezer are pretty much terrible now. I’ve not heard it, but there’s little chance than an album called ‘raditude’ could be a good prospect, especially given the reviews it’s been recieving. Maybe River Cuomo knows something that we don’t, and it’s all post-ironic or something. Either way, it’s been nearly a decade since they released anything of note, and even the stuff that earnt them some pretty decent airtime like ‘Pork and Beans’ was throwaway rubbish.
Anyway, to remind you of the happier times, Laura Wolf and Christopher Alcxxk have recorded a cover of the band’s 2002 single ‘Keep Fishin”, which might just remind you why you thought they were an alright band, actually. Even if the video to Buddy Holly does haunt your dreams. Oh, and you can still catch Internet Forever supporting Johnny Foreigner on their UK tour at the minute. Here’s the remaining dates:
24 Nov – Joiners, Southampton
25 Nov – Sub89, Reading
26 Nov – Boiler Room, Guildford
27 Nov – Sugarmill, Stoke
And here’s the song. Enjoy:
