Since Weezer won't be heading on the Hella Mega Tour with Green Day and Fall Out Boy until next summer, Rivers Cuomo decided to use his free time to become a student again. The frontman recently revealed he was enrolled in a Web Programming class, and for his final project created an online store on his "Mister Rivers Neighborhood" website stocked with 2,655 previously unreleased demos.
Yeah, you read that right: two-thousand-six-hundred-fifty-five
The myriad of tracks are bundled into a dozen different compilations ranging from the years 1976 (when Cuomo was just six years old!) to 2015. The bundles are packaged by "era," and each one is $9. Cuomo left a few "disclaimers" for fans to read before making a purchase:
- It might have silence.
- It might be wildly inappropriate.
- It might have super low sound quality.
- It might just be me rambling, talking, making sounds.
- It may have already been shared or leaked.
- It might be just a drum beat. it might not have vocals.
- It might be a duplicate of another demo.
- It might be an inferior version of another demo.
- the information provided, such as year and description, might be incorrect.
- Also, over time, the contents of each bundle in the market might change.
- Or the metadata for a file might change.
