Weezer: The 8-bit Album

Pterodactyl Squad just released an 8-bit tribute to Weezer featuring the likes of Bit Shifter, Anamanaguchi, Rabato, Tugboat, nordloef and more…

“Do you remember that dream you had, where the sound chips from the beloved games consoles of your youth all got together and formed a Weezer tribute band? Yeah? No? OK. That dream is about to come true whether you had it or not.

weezerThe songs on this compilation have mostly been created using original videogame hardware running home-brew software, and vary radically in style, from minimal compositions to 8-bit inspired full band performances. Pterodactyl Squad proudly presents the music of Weezer as you have never heard it before.”

Available now from here.

But he has also seemingly quit 8bit? Via his Myspace:

Sorry for all inconvenience regarding buying my CD.  All tracks from “Man Of The Year” are now available in a zip file that you can download here:

And earlier this week he posted:


The 8-bit stuff was fun but now I am moving on towards other things.

Here’s hoping his new stuff is due soon, whether it be chip or otherwise.
