  • X FM, UK: a fan writes: "...I asked for 'dope nose' but Zane Lowe [DJ] said "Jurassic Cuts... it's a chance to dig in the crates and pull out somethin' old- give it a spin... Getting quite a few emails for you guys out there askin' us to, dig out some of that Brand new weezer material that's all over their website. It's currently being touted around the various downloadable sites and areas... and nothing would give me greater pleasure but, y'know, we download it, play it on the air... their management gets angry, cos we're braodcasting it, blahblahlah. I dont really mind whether the band wants it to happen because, y'know (sharp intake of air) they dont make all the desicions sadly... but as soon as we get it, we'll play it, it's just not that easy. [pause] ... ackt! To hell with it! Lets download it- see if we can get it for you early next week, it'll be nice to play something off it. Dope nose at least... I dunno. Anyway- new album on the way definatly... Rivers Cuomo's been a busy boy- makin' up for 5 or 6 years spent studying English (chuckle) *insert dodgy american accent* whatever man...Anyway, getting quite a few emails for that sort of stuff, so I thought, what I'll do, is I'll slip something in Jurassic for claire and everyone else who's keen to hear that new weezer stuff. Ill play you something old... lets go to Pinkerton! It's an album that the band dont necessarily like, but I still think it's incredible... this one's for the stardy, maranda and flinn samuals." *proceeds to play el scorcho*..."
