    I'm not a Beck fan but this is cooool.

    I like it what a super cool idea. At least for musicians anyway.

    I started reading the article, but then I was attacked by Juggalos so I had to split.

    I wonder will he be charging bands royalties for releasing the "covers" online

  7. i saw this on facebook this morning and find it hilarious because anyone that's been to a punk or hardcore show in the past 15 years (possibly more, this is how long I've been going) knows vinyl never went away so it cant really have a resurgence.

    Of course...see the Vinyl Spinners Club thread. We know.

    I just thought it very clever. :smug:

    Oh, and oops. I realize this is semi-music-related (but moreso Artist news)...should this be moved to Misc? I appreciate your consideration, Mods.

    Yes. I see it. Perhaps a merge then? I will flag and suggest.

    I think this is very cool. I need to really get into proper music notation reading...this will be fun! I too would LOVE to hear people's interpretations of this work...I hope there is a fan-recording site.

    It sounds very pretentious to me.

    I like a couple of Beck's tunes, but I never got why he was always heralded as some sort of musical genius. Just IMHO.

    Pretentious it may be, but I don't see anything wrong with this even if it is. You're still getting something, and imo, getting much more out of it, if you ask me it IS genius. I see a lot of value in this past the novelty or media-mention it's gotten so far. YMMV. It's been 5 years since his last album of his own material. Can you think of a better, more novel way of promoting a new project? You know full well a proper physical album will follow on its heels, it's inevitable...but hey, I'm into creative marketing. And that is what this is. Would you rather a Beck porn tape scandal?

    Submit your versions of the tunes quick before Beck does !

    Maybe it'll make it to the inevitable album as a hidden track , like , the B-side.:)

    Depends. Who's the other person (or people) involved? :D

    One thing he could do marketing wise is to have bands submit recordings of the music. Have a method to choose the best of each track. Pay a set fee to those who are chosen. He can add his vocals over the top, and release an album that way. So many people would eat that up.
  17. This is really cool. Too bad I'm not a Beck fan! :(

    Exactly. I like yer thinking! With thinking like this...I dunno...maybe it would stray from "pretentious" to.....downright awesome?
