Punkspring 2013 Weezer Thrash Hits

Most of our readers might not be familiar with the name Will Beardmore, but he’s the guy working feverishly behind the scenes on the long-awaited, much-trumped, and forever-delayed Thrash Hits redesign (and boy, is it looking good). He’s on holiday right now, mucking about over in Japan, so when he said he’d been to Punkspring festival out there….well, what sort of a music website would we be if we turned down a review?

Is there anything better than a Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page? Yeah, loads of things but you won’t find the best online festival coverage on any of them. You’ll find that right here.

All our work from Sonisphere Festival 2011 is going be linked to from this page (eventually), so give it a bookmark or just don’t close it, because it’s all you’re going to need. Individual band coverage (interviews, photos, setlists and some tiny reviews), rumours, drinking games, stage times, dodgy photos of as many sexy ladies in various states of safe-for-work undress as we can legitimately get away with? It’s all here.

Top 5: Biffy Clyro – Simon Neil chooses his Top 5 Rock Eccentrics

December 2nd, 2008

Biffy Clyro singer/guitarist Simon Neil took the time to have a chat with Anne Waites about his Top 5 favourite eccentrics in the world of rock. We agreed that there are a lot and that beards are very important.

Rivers Cuomo, Weezer
“He went through the huge beard phase, tried to deconstruct the technique of writing a pop song, sat in his room painted black for three years, realised he didn’t want to do it and now he plays soccer and he’s letting the other guys in the band write songs. He’s probably my favourite eccentric ever.”

Axl Rose, Guns N’ Roses
“Total genius! I think I’m the only person in the world that still rates Axl Rose. I’m mega excited about the new Guns N’ Roses album. He’s the only person that could spend 50 million dollars of a record label’s money. That’s something brilliant in my eyes. It’s shaped up to be a corking record.”

Unreleased Weezer track ‘found’ on YouTube

Weezer Rivers Cuomo Thrash Hits

Eager web trawlers seemed to have landed a huge Weezer-sized catch today as they discovered what they thought was a brand new, unreleased track from the Californian emo pioneers.

However, the song, titled ‘Turnin’, Turnin” was confirmed by a label spokesman as a genuine Weezer or Rivers Cuomo song and is actually the song Weezer have been writing with their fans as part of the YouTube “Write a song with Rivers” blogs.

Being on YouTube, there is some great video action involved. Beginning with just a picture of Rivers Cuomo & co’s latest self-titled album which has come to be known as ‘The Red Album’ because the cover is red, it continues to include some of the greatest Premiership goals… ever.

Listen to ‘Turnin’ Turnin” by Weezer and watch football?
