A band I formed when I was living in Boston after Weezer went on hiatus in the late 90's. It never really had a consistent lineup.

I recorded an album's worth of songs at Fort Apache Studios with a couple other musicians. We recorded "I'll Think About You" from Alone II around this time.

We released one song under the name Homie: "American Girls" for the movie Meet the Deedles.

I wrote it at the same time as I wrote Pinkerton. If a song was lighthearted, I put it in the Homie pile. If it was darkhearted, I put it in the Pinkerton pile. Having both piles allowed me to write whatever I was feeling without having to worry if it was too dark or too light.

Kurt Cobain

Rumor that I'm actually Kurt Cobain. Nope, not true.

Never met him. The Blue album came out a month after he died. It's possible, though unlikely, that he heard it. Same label.

I'm pretty sure I never said his name in any of the hundreds of interviews I did in the nineties. Correct me if you find one. I was uncomfortable saying his name.

After he died, I changed the lyric in "Suzanne" to "Izzy, Slash".

Santa Monica

The city where I live. I'm superstitious about the effect this place has on my creativity.
