Modern Guilt was okay, we suppose, but it certainly wasn't as good as the Velvet Underground's first album. So, today Beck has announced plans for a "record club": He and famous friends will rerecord famous LPs in their entirety — all in one day and without rehearsal — then release a track at a time on his official website. Up first is Velvet Underground, featuring collaborators like Nigel Godrich and, for some reason, Giovanni Ribisi; "Sunday Morning" is currently streaming on As long as they never remake Guero, we totally support this.
