Rivers Cuomo Third Man

Lately we’ve been hearing a lot about the instant vinyl recording booth at Jack White’s Third Man Records. Brendan Benson recorded a song in it last year and Neil Young made his entire new album A Letter Home in the booth. This past weekend, the members of Weezer — who were in Nashville to play 1994′s self-titled “Blue Album” and 1996′s Pinkerton in full — crowded into the booth to record an acoustic version of beloved Blue-era B-side “Susanne.” No word on whether the vinyl will be sold, but on Twitter the band called it “one of a kind.” Watch clips of the recording session and mixing below, and check out all the fans’ phones…

Weezer’s new Ric-Ocasek-produced LP is due out this year. In the meantime, you might as well listen to the original recording of “Susanne” because it rules.

  1. what a sad clip, why is everyone filming it with their damn phone. Put down the phone and enjoy the moment. Even izzy, slash and axl rose, they would call and tell you to put down your phone.

  2. bring matt sharp back ya wankaz

  3. that’s a photo from Bad Grandpa, right?

  4. This booth isn’t involved in the “world’s fastest released record” attempt at all. Re-read the press release. It’s basically a sped-up version of their “direct-to-acetate” live recordings but with the local pressing plant on standby all day when they should be off work after the insane run-up to Record Store Day. In other words, as a former employee of United Record Pressing, it’s gonna be a clusterfuck and is a pointless gimmick.
