Made these old school video game jams at the same time as Threshold 8-bit. No one will ever hear them if I don't give 'em away. Miss you guys, I only go on the internet for maybe an hour every couple days or so but I am as you are very glad that Beck is doing lots of stuff again.

One luvz,

#340011 Beck on Saturday Night Live (March 1)

Posted by PirateFetus on 01 March 2014 - 11:53 PM

I waited 12 hours in the cold streets of NYC for standby tickets, and managed to get into the rehearsal show! Below are my thoughts about Beck's performance!


They opened with Blue Moon, which sounded really cool live (and I finally figured out how they do the chorus. First I thought it was just 'ooooo', then after we learned it was 'blue moon' I thought he sang 'blue moooOOooOOn', but now I realized it's 'blue, blue moon').


Roger was rocking the keys for the 'beepy' part at the end. I was sitting pretty much as far from the stage as possible but I could see Beck, JMJ, and Smokey from where I was, and had to look to the TV to see the rest of the band. Also, minor note, Beck was NOT wearing his hat during the rehearsal Blue Moon.


During the next few sketches, they rolled away the drum kit and I got confused, "I thought Beck would do another song?" but then I saw them wheeling in the music stands I started getting excited... and sure enough, when Jim Parsons announced Beck again... Wave began. It was amazing on so many levels... the lighting/filming of Beck and positioning of the orchestra.. it was terrifying. Dark. He looked like Dracula or something.


Wave is a very weird choice to play live on national television. So much music these days lacks pain or anger. Even Nine Inch Nails doesn't have much pain in his music anymore. Cynical, dark, yes.. but the days of "Hurt" are over (which is great for Trent). So for Beck to come onto the national stage and play a song so dark, and so full of pain, and so different from what's 'mainstream' these days... it was just really powerful.


What really drove this point home was after he played, and the applause lights went off, the audience (besides me) went dead silent. someone behind me whispered to her friend, 'how is that even music?' or something to that effect... it was really a subversive and kind of rebellious song to play, even though I'm sure that wasn't the intention, he was just being himself!

Fine fine the natives are getting restless.

Need some help though! Does anyone in LA have a cassette deck we can use to digitalize? I know someone who can digitalize, we just need a cassette deck that won't eat the tape.

UPDATE: a tape deck has been found. hopefully will do this next week.

#334014 the new and improved...

Posted by tebe2k on 05 December 2012 - 08:14 PM

Beck gets in an elevator, wants to call his girl, has no signal in the elevator. Lord, please don't forsake me, he shouts. Hopefully Jane doesn't go away, he thinks. Beck starts to not feel so well. Doors shutting like an eye that's closing, he runs on autopilot to his home. From there he gets a hold of his girl and invites her to a movie and dancing. Nothing particularly wrong with the nite, but his girlfriend digs a ditch in his room. Then the information comes and the world ***ing ends

#333427 What do you think Beck's day to day life is like?

Posted by seacaptain on 04 October 2012 - 01:30 PM

I think he wakes up, thinks about recording a new album, doesn't.

I'll Show Up With Seven Copies Of One Foot Deluxe And Ask Him About It

#341004 Kickstarter for K Records 2 Thoughts

Posted by seacaptain on 08 June 2014 - 06:40 PM

I disagree there: Beck has his old music archived, he has tons of it.  He may not want to play 'Satan Gave Me A Taco' live but he hasn't completely dissociated.


But the thing is, I think he has to feel like it.  There was a time a few years back when Beck was apparently feeling nostalgiac and put together One Foot Deluxe, shortly after Odelay Deluxe.  Maybe it was when he couldn't play guitar because of his injury.  He even sent out 'The Way It Seems' with a note indicating that more was coming.  So he knows it's there, looked at it, thought about it, considered it, wanted to do it.  That's not dissociated.  


I think the best hope now is that at some point in time, he'll feel nostalgiac again and like going through the archives again.  (Right now, he's clearly into new music.)


And for those who don't know, I'm the one Beck told about One Foot selling poorly.  My friend Seth and I met Beck after a Song Reader art event, and asked him flat up what was up with the 2nd K Record that he had said was coming, but never had.  He then told us One Foot Deluxe sold around 4000 copies, which was hardly enough to cover the effort of going through the archives, digitalizing/making sure the ancient tapes sounds ok, making them sound ok when they didn't, pressing up the cds & vinyls, selling them.  :(


I do think there's other options (just throw it on iTunes), but he was very focused on the effort of putting it all together, and One Foot's sales clearly didn't cover it.  


(Of course, we also asked about what he was working on, and he just said 'continuing to produce and things' and then like a month later, Morning Phase was announced.  So he may have been lying to our faces, haha.)  


(I doubt it though, the way he said "well here's the thing..." about One Foot Deluxe sales sounded like it he was somewhat frustrated by it.)


Anyway, I still don't think Kickstarter is the best way, but we should try somehow to indicate how many people want it and hope it's enough.  Though I do think we should wait until he's not touring/working on new music so heavily also.  Timing is everything.

#340734 Beck vs Wayne Coyne

Posted by unheard78 on 30 April 2014 - 09:14 AM

I have to agree with HATING SOME PEOPLE not being about Wayne or probably anyone real. It and Blue Randy are clearly connected. It's great stuff, but I always thought it was just some goofy, off the head stuff.


As for Wayne, I used to LOVE the Flaming Lips, though I'm kinda over them right now mostly because of Wayne. Being an ass in public, releasing a goofy album every five minutes, picking fights just for fun, etc., it's all a waste of time that gets in the way of the music. I'd much rather they go back to putting out an album every few years and blowing people's minds, much like they did with Embryonic which is the last thing they did I really enjoyed. I still respect them, I just need less goofyness and thrown off ideas. It's one thing to be "different", it's another to keep screaming "LOOK AT ME! I'M DIFFERENT!", which I suppose is another sign of Beck's evolution. He never came off as doing the "look at me!" just to get attention, more like he did it just because he thought it was different and interesting. It changed, he changed, and while he still has a goofy edge about himself, he doesn't let it override everything he does, which is appreciated. Not to mention, Beck always took his songwriting seriously and never used it as an excuse to release a gummy fetus or human skull edition of a record for a gigantic price. Or a 24 hour song. Ugh.

Obviously it'll be Golden Feelings and Stereopathetic Soulmanure so that you can hear an extra thirty-seven layers of cassette tape static that don't exist in the originals because of the evil compression.


Did you know there was actually four hobos singing "No Money No Honey?" The other three were two blocks away and weren't singing properly, but NOW YOU CAN HEAR THEM PERFECTLY!

#340114 Hello

Posted by tropicalia on 06 March 2014 - 07:04 AM

Just registered and wanted to say hello. I wasn't sure where this should be posted...


Anyway... Hello from the UK. In love with Beck since Odelay :awub:  .  Odelay, Mutations, Sea Change and Guero are my favourite albums of his (though it is difficult to choose!). And now I can add Mornig Phase to my favourites. Beautiful beautiful album!


Any news on a UK tour? I see he's over here in September for a couple of festivals, but I really would like to see him at his own gig.
