Featured article: Wannabeezer

Sinclair with Rivers Cuomo at the beach, March 2015.

"wannabeezer" was the username used by Jake Sinclair on forums in January of 2016. Sinclair posted intermittently leading up to the release of The White Album, which he produced, sharing updates and insights about the upcoming record. The username was an homage to the Weezer cover band that Sinclair was a part of in high school. His interactions with fans are part of somewhat lengthy history of Weezer band members interacting with fans through online message boards. Below is Sinclair's first post - see the full article for all of his correspondences with fans.

January 15, 2016 - Thread: "Producer(s)?"

"hi ATW,

i've been watching things unfold on these forums for a few months now. the confusion of TigFag, the delight of DYWGH. the incredible gifs! (i particularly loved "Rivers' face when he realizes we've hacked his dropbox and have all 235 songs he sent to Crush").

as far as i know (and without giving too much away) Alex Goose will receive an additional production credit. we kept the organ part from his instrumental demo that Rivers used to write TGFG (lyrics/melodies are 100% "Cuomonly").

i'm definitely looking forward to seeing your reactions to the rest of the album, it leans more DYWGH than it does TGFG (although in context of the album, TGFG will make a lot more sense). believe it or not, L.A. Girlz will definitely be a forum favorite. i think it'll draw a lot of Suzanne comparisons (which was a favorite of mine during that era).

cue the feedback, jake sinclair

p.s. i imagine i'll be ripped to shreds on here because of my other recent production credits. just know that my taste is much more in line with yours than you'd think. Andrew McMahon and I actually bonded over the fact that we both had Weezer cover bands in high school (mine was called Wannabeezer)."

Featured song: Play on spotify.png [Byzantine "{{{2}}}"]

Weezer Black Album Cover.png
"Byzantine" is the ninth track on Weezer's 2019 album "Weezer (The Black Album).".

Laura Jane Grace of Against Me has a co-writing credit for "Byzantine," having sent Rivers Cuomo lyrics ideas via text message. Said Cuomo, "She did most of the lyrics, and she sent them to me as text messages, and I turned it into a song." In an interview with Billboard, Cuomo also explained that song's "bridge is from a pre-Weezer band that (drummer Patrick Wilson) and I were in in 1991, called Fuzz. I searched for the key and the tempo and the basic vibe I was looking for, and it popped up. All of my little bits and pieces of music will find a home eventually."

The song was produced by Dave Sitek, and features a wide array of lyrical references, including Neil Young, Tennessee Williams, and shoe designer Stuart Weitzman.
