i can add things. (this wasn't much of a hassle either. i've posted most of these on the board already. just not all in one place)

heres Mutations Conversations

triple j 2003-03-24 - part 1, part 2 & part 3

the infamous Beck vs Nardwuar - Interview from 1994(? maybe 1995?)

the below is more a mix of bio with interview bits mixed inbetween

heres Maximum Beck

BBC Radio 2 - Beckology - 2004-08-21 (i posted this before and searched for it and found it BUT i guess i used to use rapidshare and the link was dead, however for some reason it's a rare event that things are taken down from megaupload. anyway.)

heres The Ongoing History of New Music - Becks Brain (podcast)

i got others to (i share them at the hub)
i might post more sometime, idk. it's sorta a mess to sort thru (and that even with as neat as i try and keep it)

a tidbit for when looking for interviews is that a lot of audio interview can be from radio shows, where inbetween the songs theres chating. like for example: kcrw. modern rock live. things like that.
theres some lone interviews he's done as well. most of these are in more recent years and a lot i got from stewoo and elsewhere (where these link still work, who knows). like i think he did a bunch for the information, some for guero, a couple for modern guilt (mostly japan ones it seems).
this could also be because around these times is when i've looked online the most but also cause online has become a bigger media outlet than it used to be just in general. it's a big part of promotion now (more so than ever before)

Really? I didn't realize that. I thought Megaupload links expired after a certain number of downloads or after a certain number of days. But I guess that could just be other upload services I've had experience with. If that's true, it's a good reason to use Megaupload.

Beck vs. Nardwuar is from June 1994. Here's the printed version of it.

There's also a printed version of Beck's Brain. (Up to now I didn't read it or listen to it, so I can't tell, if they're similar. However, there are only 3 segments of the printed version, no idea if it's complete.)

Segment1
Segment2
Segment3

I never listened to Beck's Brain, but from looking at the transcripts, it doesn't look like an interview.

You're right, it's not. It's just a recap of his career.

By the way, Alan Cross, the guy who's behind that segment, came in to speak to our radio class a few weeks ago. He was there for a good hour and a half. I asked him about his sit-down interview with Beck shortly after Modern Guilt was released. If anyone has that (or knows where to find it), it was pretty insightful and would fit into this thread rather nicely.

Um, as you know this guy in person, how about sending him a mail and ask for a copy? :DooDoDo: :)

This will probably get me into the "annoying people list", but does anyone have the original audio from the Tom Waits and Beck interview from Irrelevant Topics? The audio is gone and I wondered it anyone had kept it. Thanks!
