Weezer's third practice
Weezer's third practice is the first recorded work by the band.
Karl Koch, from the Weezer Recording History:
On 2/14/92 Rivers, Pat, Jason (on acoustic guitar, which he would retain untill late fall 1992), and Matt (newly arrived from Berkeley, CA), got together at T.K. rehersal studios, in West LA, and rehearsed for either 3 or 4 days straight. On the 3rd day, somebody rolled tape for a while...
Note that weezer wasn't actually named yet. On the original tape the following band names were all crammed on the label, a joke on how no one could decide on the name for the band yet. Some were old names, such as "Fuzz", but there was also such notables as "Meathead", "Outhouse", and "Hummingbird", and I know some other names being kicked around were "The Big Jones" and "This Niblet".
