There was much happiness in Weezerland over the weekend as news leaked out that frontman Rivers Cuomo and estranged bassist Matt Sharp were not only back on speaking terms, but that Cuomo joined Sharp on stage for some songs. The two joined forces at a Sharp gig on the Cal State Fullerton campus on February 12. Two Weezer songs were unveiled at the acoustic performance, ìSay It Ainít So,î and, as an unexpected encore, ìUndone ñ The Sweater Song.î Could this mean further collaborative efforts between the one-time bandmates? That concept sure looks closer today than it did a few months back.
Speaking of the fine boys in Weezer, come March 23, itís gonna be a Weezer free-for-all at the record shop. Not only is there a DVD on tap, but the band is reissuing their eponymous debut, with bonus material tacked on for 10-year anniversary good measure. The DVD will contain all the bandís videos, from ìUndone ñ The Sweater Songî and ìEl Scorchoî up through videos from their 2002 album, Maladroit, like ìDope Noseî and ìKeep Fishiní.î Also included will be behind the scenes looks at the band and live material. The CD bonus material is more of the same, with live takes of album tracks and other hard to find nuggets.
