Beck's Record Club Covers Velvet Underground 'Sunday Morning'
Beck has uploaded his version of the Velvet Underground classic, "Sunday Morning," the first of weekly updates on his websites for his new Record Club project.
The idea: Beck invites his musician friends to record classic albums as quickly as possible, as part of his new website overhaul. He's starting the project off with Velvet Underground & Nico.
For this first edition, after lengthy deliberation and coming close to covering Digital Underground's Sex Packets, all present voted in favor of the 'other' Underground's The Velvet Underground & Nico. Participants included this time around are Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, Brian Lebarton, Bram Inscore, Yo, Giovanni Ribisi, Chris Holmes, and from Iceland, special guest Thorunn Magnusdottir, and myself. Thanks to everyone who helped put this together, and to all of you for indulging in this experiment. More soon.
No word on which album he'll cover next, but here's hoping for Piper at the Gates of Dawn. No?
Beggar's Banquet? Nah.
Bat Out of Hell? Yes.
Other friends-o'-Beck and future Record Clubbers include Devendra Banahrt, MGMT and Jamie Lidell.
