Hace unos meses recibí un mensaje a través del infame myspace de un colega de la escena 8 bit en el que me invitaba a formar parte de un proyecto curioso a la vez que interesante. Se trataba de hacer versiones 8 bit de Weezer para un disco tributo a la banda de rock americana.
Es uno de mis grupos de rock favoritos así que no lo dudé. Fué difícil escoger un tema para versionar ya que no quería hacer uno demasiado conocido. Después de un repaso de toda su discografía, decidí hacer “We are all on drugs” del album “Make believe”.
Es un tema muy poco conocido pero que representa bien el sentido del humor del grupo.
Han participado en este tributo a Weezer grandes nombres de la escena tales como Bit Shifter, Tugboat, Anamanaguchi, Videogame Orchestra o el mismo Arcadecoma, organizador del proyecto.

A few months back I received a message through the infamous myspace from an 8 bit scene coleague in which he invited me to take part in a curious and interesting project. He was putting together an 8 bit tribute record of the american rock band Weezer.
It is, in fact, one of my favourite rock bands, so I did not hesitate. It was difficult to pick a song since I didn’t want to do a track that was too popular. After a quick listen to their discography, I picked “We are all on drugs” from the album “Make believe”.
It is not a famous song but it represents well Weezer’s sense of humor.
Big names of the 8 bit music scene have taken part in this project such as Bit Shifter, Tugboat, Anamanaguchi, Videogame Orchestra and Arcadecoma himself, the guy who put it all together.
