Say It Ain’t So

Harvard grad and Asian fetishist Rivers Cuomo tells MTVNews that Weezer are going bye-bye again.

“I’ve been writing a lot. I don’t know what’ll happen with these songs ? if anything ? I just sort of write them and I can’t stop. I certainly don’t see them becoming Weezer songs, and I don’t really see the point of a solo career. … The band is all back in Los Angeles, and I sometimes I speak with Patrick, and I occasionally e-mail with Brian and Scott, but we’ve never mentioned getting together. Really, for the moment, we are done.”

Don’t hold your breath for a Greatest Hits either.

“I’m not convinced that we have a greatest-hits album that is worth putting out at this point. I’d like to include two more amazing songs on there. And anything else would just seem lazy to me. We’ll see, though. I don’t really feel comfortable with it now.”

What? Weezer were built for a Greatest Hits! Whatevs. I’m much more interested in that third Rentals album.

Check out Matt Sharp and Blur performing “Friends Of P” on the French TV show Taratata ten years ago (YouTube). Nice bug eyes, boys! They look like they’re having a lot of fun.
