Title: September 4th 2007

Game Over are happy to inform you that we are working on a new song - a cover of the Cut Man theme from Mega Man. Wire has rebuilt a 10 m2 cabin into a ghetto studio and uses a mic:ed up Marshall 100 W Valvestate for the recording of the guitars. This marks the beginning of a rawer, heavier yet rockier less-is-more kind of era in Game Over's career. We can't say exactly when you will get to hear this new creation of ours since the lyrics aren't finished yet (we're working on them though), but yeah... we just thought you wanted to know.

Oh, and there's another thing that should be mentioned while we're at it. As NESperado was released Wire decided to lose her "last name", McQuaid. We forgot to mention this officially as we didn't find it very important. But now you know.
McQuaid came from an early episode of the 90's tv series 21 Jump Street where two undercover cops played the roles of annoying gang members. Very funny and inspiring when you're 15, not very relevant today, let alone to Game Over.

That´s great news. The first Mega Man soundtrack is a bit underestimated in my opinion, and I´m very excited about how the new Game Over sound will handle this classic...!

Kickass!  I always loved that song.  I really liked the soundtrack for the first Mega Man actually.

Yup!
Look, the McQuaid brothers even have a MySpace account:

Also, there are a few YouTube videos:

Watching these will make you understand why I was "McQuaid" for 16 years. (Uuuhm, I'd better tell you I'm being ironic.)

I remember reading from the site a long time ago that you were in a band called the McQuaids.  And another person from that group played bass for Game Over for a while.  Is this correct?

I commend you for your excellent memory! This is indeed correct. The McQuaids consisted of two people - myself and Whiz, who is still my best friend. We made a few songs together but for some reason we always fighted, haha.
The McQuaids' philosophy was to mix certain elements of culture together and this is where the idea of nintendo metal initially came from.
