Featured article: Office Demos


The Office Demos are a group of acoustic demos recorded in 2003 in a rented office space. From 2003 to 2008, the only Office Demos that had been heard were the songs "Everybody Wants a Chance to Feel All Alone" and "Private Message". Since then, several more demos have been released (presumably because of Karl) through iTunes and as bonus tracks on albums. In June of 2003, after the S.I.R. Demos, Weezer began to rent office space in Los Angeles where they would rehearse with acoustic guitars and record demos directly into Rivers Cuomo's laptop. The office was a standard business office in an industrial park and not designed for band rehearsals. The four members of Weezer would play sitting on chairs and couches around a coffee table facing each other. In addition to acoustic guitars played by Rivers, Brian or Pat, and acoustic bass played by Scott, other instruments used on the demos were Pat's Stratocaster and a Nord synthesizer.

Featured song: "In the Garage"


"In the Garage" is the eighth track from The Blue Album. Along with "Holiday", "In the Garage" was written out of a sudden burst of excitement and creativity shortly after Weezer was signed to Geffen Records. Accordingly, one could consider "In the Garage" to be the antithesis of "Holiday". It is the sadder look at the excitement of being signed to a record label. One could arguably consider it to be the song that pinned the band as "geeks" with lyrics that reference such things as the Dungeon Master's Guide from Dungeon & Dragons and the comic book superhero Nightcrawler.

The inspiration for "In the Garage" predominately came from the garage of the Amherst House, which was the location for all of Weezer's early rehearsals. Additionally, it was where Rivers found himself writing the majority of his songs. The song is arguably the most personal and revealing of all the songs to appear on The Blue Album. Each verse reveals a new description to both Rivers and the garage.
