ザ クマモトキッド (translates to The Kumamoto Kid) was a planned Japanese language solo album by Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo.

Overview

ザ クマモトキッド would have been the first solo album by Rivers Cuomo to not be a demo compilation. The album was first mentioned on Cuomo's Indaba Music account in 2009 where he posted 2 work-in-progress demos. The demos were written with another songwriter named Shusui. A sum of $208 was being offered for somebody to produce a better demo of the music.[1]

In October 2012, it was announced that Cuomo had teamed up with Scott Murphy (from the band Allister) to create an album of fully Japanese music. The album was released in early 2013 under the band name Scott & Rivers. One of the demos co-written by Shusui would eventually turn into "Homely Girl", the first single released by the band.
