Featured article: Geezer


Geezer is an unlicensed bootleg Weezer CD released by the Australian record label Kiwi Records in the Spring of 1995. It is deemed by band archivist and webmaster Karl Koch to be the first Weezer bootleg ever released.

The bootleg contains fan-recorded audio from Weezer's December 4, 1994 concert in New Britain, Connecticut. The performance includes songs from Weezer (The Blue Album), interspersed with an early performance of "Getchoo" (which would later appear on Pinkerton in 1996) as well as the B-side "Jamie".

Geezer was produced in the city of Findon, South Australia, by the record label Kiwi Records. The label is credited with numerous other bootleg releases from the mid-'90s for bands such as Nirvana, the Foo Fighters, Deep Purple, and other alt-rock contemporaries. The Weezer bootleg uses the same cover art as Weezer (The Blue Album), only with the heads of each member replaced with those of old men, conforming with the title. In its track listing, "Getchoo" is listed as "Get to My Heart" (a mishearing of the song's chorus), as the song's title was not yet publicly known. It is unknown how many copies were produced or how broadly it was distributed, however it is claimed that the CD appeared in an advertisement in the American music collecting magazine Goldmine, its price ranging around $25–30. The CD is now considered to be rare, and is coveted by some as a collector's item.

"A Ballad for the Fallen Soldier" (formerly "I'll Love You Every Day") is a song by Weezer.

Rivers Cuomo is first known to have demoed the song, under the title "I'll Love You Every Day", to his phone's recording app on March 27, 2015. This recording, featuring Cuomo singing over acoustic guitar, was released on November 23, 2020, as part of the compilation Alone XII: The White Year. Full demos were later released on December 13, 2020.

The song was first heard by fans when it was performed live by Weezer, as an instrumental, on October 18, 2017 at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, Belgium, wherein it appeared on the setlist under the title "I'll Love You Every Day". The song was listed at subsequent concerts under the title "A Ballad for the Fallen Soldier", and was performed for the remainder of the Feels Like Summer Tour in Europe in October of 2017. It followed the song "Happy Hour" at all concerts in which it was played.

Featured quote: Rivers Cuomo on his chemistry with Jake Sinclair

He was intimately familiar with the kinds of ways I sing and the way I play and the way I write, so he was a fantastic partner for me. He was always able to hear when I got off track and articulate that in a way that would inspire me to get back on the right one.
