I have a question about a few of weezers/rivers older songs such as

Purification of Water
I Need Some Touch

Now that weezerpedia is down I can't find much information on them

My main question is why weren't they recoreded in full with whole band and also what other songs were recorded @ that time wgich might have leaked or whatever so....seems like there is a lot of older demos that are/would make some great tracks

Well any help is appreciated thanks

Also I know that 2 of those I listed were put on the alone cds and have quick blurbs about em but was looking for more info

There had to be more tracks rivers demoed from his 50 song project in 93'

are you guys new to the internet or something?

Basically your answer lies with either:


a.) Rivers demoed the song (i.e. POW) and although good, didn't think it sounded like something for Weezer.

b.) The song was put aside because there were better demos (i.e. Buddy Holly which was written around the same time as Chess) at the time that deserved being on a record more.


Rivers has written, as you can see, a bajillion songs.

thank you so much the link is amazing it has everything :)
I can't believe you guys never saw that before!

There's also a torrent floating around that's got nearly all the demos and such.


as for info, the Weezer Recording History right here at weezer.com is pretty great reading





that is a classy site.
