Beck has been doing the Record Club project since last summer, jamming out with friends on full album covers of the Velvet Underground and Leonard Cohen. This is a Skip Spence track called "Lawrence of Euphoria."<p>Record Club: Skip Spence "Lawrence of Euphoria" from Beck Hansen on Vimeo.</p>
At some point, Mr. Hansen is going to do another record of his own. You've got to wonder if this is not akin to a writer rewriting his favorite novels as forced inspiration for new, original work. Or maybe he's just having a good time and putting off the inevitable creation of his own work. Either way, this shit rules.
Check out covers of the rest of the Skip Spence album Oar - and the other cover projects - at beck.com/record_club.
