• These Things Matter - Adam Cayton-Holland
  • These Things Matter - Weezer

Ahhhh, Weezer. What would the world be like without Weezer? Taylor and guest Adam Cayton-Holland would not be friends, for one thing. Kev and Tay love ACH. Them’s the truth words. And all three of them love Weezer. Join us as we discuss Rivers, The Blue Album, Pinkerton, and those other 6 or 7 or however many albums that we don’t care to think about.

Adam Cayton-Holland is blowing up in the comedy world right now, and for all the A’s to your Q’s, go to his awesomely named website, adamisfreakingoutrightnow.com. There you’ll find all his tour dates, his videos, and an awesome blog post he wrote about us after appearing on the show. PLUS, our own Taylor is producing his podcast, My Dining Room Table, dropping every other Wednesday from here until eternity. We’re following the Gary The Squirrel method of success – “Innovative. Multi-Platform. SYNERGY.”

3 Thoughts on “Ep. 8 – Weezer w/ Adam Cayton-Holland

    Found your podcast today. Couldn’t believe my luck. I listen to three episodes. But… you guys were WAY to brutal on their later work. Your perspective on Weezer is totally skewed by being young when the blue album came out. You didn’t mention Matt Sharp leaving the band after Pinkerton. He played a huge role in their sound.

    Anyway, name a band that has put out albums over 20 years that still maintains the integrity of their early work.

    The red album is essential. Although, Hurley was zig when they probably should have zagged.

      Well, what can we say. When your first band-love disappoints you, it severely crushes your heart. Name a band? You have a point – fair enough. It doesn’t make the sting of the band break-up any less jarring. But, thanks for listening!!

    Weezer Podcast was grreat, but I gotta say, you guys and all Weezer fans everywhere have at least the Red Album wrong. I agree that their sound wasnt the same after Pinkerton (I loved the theory of Rivers not being able to deal with rejection changing his out look, kinda like Eddie Murphy (who you should totally do) after Harlem Nights), but they did try new things just in different ways. srsly give the red album another listen.
    Great Podcast btw.
