“They don’t make stationary like that where I’m from”

Weezer – “Across the Sea” from Pinkerton (1996) and “I Just Threw Out The Love Of My Dreams” from The Good Life single (1997)

Something must be in the air. After I spent a good portion of the weekend listening to good ol’ Weezer, P-fork runs an interview with Rivers Cuomo himself. Here’s one of the best tracks from the Puccini-rippin’ Pinkerton (a stone-cold classic, if you ask me), as well as one of the crucial Pinkerton-era B-sides, featuring Rachel Haden (of that dog., daughter of jazz bass great Charlie Haden).

Here’s an interesting undergrad thesis on the canonization of Weezer in their latent period of the late ’90s and early aughts. Especially check out the graphs in chapter 5; they provide an interesting visual representation of how we got a hold of our music in the pre-Internet daze.
