Alone IV

Alone IV: The EWBAITE Years is available in the market.

I had no plans to release a 4th Alone album, but my plans changed. I'm (still) finding that old material is very useful for new songs though.

Amherst House

2226 Amherst Avenue, West LA. Right on the border with Santa Monica. Close to Taco Bell, Chevron. We shot the Say It Ain’t So music video here.

We moved in shortly after Weezer formed in March of 1992. I moved out of there at the end of 1993.

On November 19, 2020 it was revealed on Twitter that the Amherst House was scheduled for demolition. I responded to the original tweet to say how sad it is. It never occurred to me they'd tear it down. But I guess all things must pass. I want to go say goodbye.

Ecce Homo

The title of my first full draft of EWBAITE, before I played anything for anyone. From the Nietzsche book title. My approach to creative work at the time was influence by Julia Cameron (The Artist's Way) and Stephen Pressfield. I released 143 demos from this era on November 20, 2020.

After listening to the demos, Riverchatters created the following track list:

  1. The British Are Coming
  2. TBD
  3. TBD
  4. TBD
  5. TBD
  6. TBD
  7. TBD
  8. TBD
  9. TBD
  10. TBD
  11. TBD
  12. TBD
  13. TBD
  14. TBD
  15. Bless the Whole Wide World

Tracklist (as noted on Weezerpedia): 1. Narcissus Blooming 2. Rules Of Life 3. Gravity Will Bring You Down 4. Sing My Blues Away 5. The British Are Coming 6. Semper Fi 7. Ain't Got Nobody 8. I Won't Flake On You 9. Ivory Telephone 10. Cleopatra 11. The Wasteland 12. Bless The Whole Wide World 13. Everybody Needs Salvation 14. Anonymous 15. Resurgam Fidei (later released as "Return to Ithaka")

Anonymous: Once a sprawling 6 minute epic, and has a completely cut intro section. One version's lyrics was: I don't want to call you Jesus I don't want to call you Buddha I don't want to call you Muhammad I don't even know your name No I don't know the words to say So I'll call you Anonymous.

Ivory Telephone:

Reworked 1998 demo.

The British Are Coming:

Different versions of this song exists, with different lyrics. One of them has lyrics that deal with personal problems and references Boba Fett.

Alternate lyric:

Roman soldiers trying to run the show

Gravity Will Bring You Down:

Gravity is in 3/4 time signature. Contains downward choral section of falsetto harmonies in the bridge before the solo.

Has lyrics about Hindenburg falling to the ground. Some lyrics suggest that the imagery was being chained in a dungeon.

Chorus lyrics:

Not every man is a superman

Not every girl is a supergirl

So cut your coupons while you still can

Cause gravity will bring you down.

Verse lyrics:

Mice munchin on your tasty bum

The first five tracks relate to the eventual theme of Patriarchia on EWBAITE (relationships to father or authority figures). The next five tracks belong to the Belladonna theme (relationships to women) while the last five tracks belong to PANOPTICON theme .

Did not contain any co-writes

Was pretty dark

Had final cover art (Everybody Needs Salvation cover) and fold-out star map and a picture of the Tower of Babel

If you already spent a lot (more the $20) on demos, don't purchase the bundle called 'The Mother Lode'. I'll figure out how to give it to you. (Olivia and geewiz come to mind but I think there are others.)

Please tell me if anything looks wrong or if I've made a mistake.

We're live. This is real money. And I can't guarantee that the purchase work. Or that you will care about the demos. At this point, only purchase if you want to help me test the app.

Once purchased, please don't share. Everyone else will have a chance to buy once I'm sure it's working. If you have a close friend, who really can't afford it, sure, go ahead and share. But don't post for the general public.

And please let me know if it doesn't work as expected. Or if you find you have access to something you shouldn't. Thank you.

I haven't had a chance to make audio previews yet so if you buy, you're buying sight unseen. Or hearing unheard?

these should be songs that have no co-writers or other performers.

for any demo: it might have silence.

it might be wildly inappropriate.

it might have super low sound quality.

it might just be me rambling, talking, making sounds.

it may have already been shared or leaked.

it might be just a drum beat. it might not have vocals.

it might be a duplicate of another demo.

it might be an inferior version of another demo.

the information provided, such as year and description, might be incorrect.

Also, over time, the contents of each bundle in the market might change.

Or the metadata for a file might change.

The price may change.

(In other words, you may prefer the current version in the market to the version you bought.)
