version of the cult legend’s Oar album.
By Blurt Staff
We already told you about how Beck has started what he calls
a “Record Club” over at his Beck.com site – he hooks up with other musicians
and cuts covers of other artist’s iconic albums (such as the first Velvet
Underground record, from which the song s”Sunday Morning” and “Run Run Run” have
already surfaced and are available for your listening pleasure at his site). He’s
also done acoustic versions of songs from his own Modern Guilt album.
Now word arrives, via Pitchfork, that his latest project is
a collaboration with Wilco to record Skip Spence’s classic album from ’69, Oar. At the moment there are no details
other than that last month they had a summit in an L.A. studio – keep your eyes
aimed at Beck’s site, as it’s sure to yield some Spence gold soon.
