Weezerpedia Discord Q&A with Karl Koch - October 2022
Karl do you prefer ECCE HOMO or EWBAITE?
well, the funny thing is, Ecce Homo had about 30 modifications over time, and im not sure any specific version was exactly right for me personally. EWBAITE i feel is a stronger album overall, and has only one real flaw, its missing 'Rules Of Life'. That would have made a good 1st or 2nd track.

I agree, would have been awesome to have rules on ewbaite as well as flight plans.
disagree on flight plans. never felt right to me

Karl, what do the 5 test pressings of "I Must Find..." look like? And, were they ever distributed in any way?
can supply photo (not at the moment, theyre at HQ V2.0 which im still setting up). basically plain white labels. I intended on having a contest to give some away, but never did, so i still have all 5.

its a fairly straight cover version of "So Much Talk" except it starts where "So Much Talk" is at 2:30. It usually disintegrated after about 2-3 minutes of raucous repetition (sort of like the original).
If i can just say, Wax at their peak was a powerhouse! They were everything weezer couldnt figure out how to do back then. Joe Sib was MAX ENERGY and it was such a breath of fresh air in the cooler than thou LA scene back then.
