The guy who booked acts at King Tut's remembers Beck show very fondly, calling it the highlight of his time there:
Geoff has no hesitation when it comes to his personal musical highlight of what we might term the entire Tutian decade of regal rockin'. ''November 27, 1994,'' he says unerringly. ''Beck at King Tut's. A fantastic gig. Back then, I was the venue's band-booker. I'd heard Loser, and I immediately knew I wanted this guy for Tut's. I'd reckoned it would be difficult to set up as I knew he wasn't coming over from the States to do many British shows - but when I phoned his management team in America, they told me Beck had heard of King Tut's reputation and was keen to play here. ''Having booked him, the show sold out very quickly. So I went back to Beck's management and said: 'We really should move this show to a bigger venue.' Their response was: 'Will moving the show to a bigger venue make you a much bigger profit?' and I had to reply that it wouldn't. ''They said that, in that case, Beck would rather his show stay in a good smaller place that he'd heard had a vibe about it - they didn't want to be greedy, reasoning that there'd be time to come back to play in bigger Glasgow venues later. Ironically, after the gig, I blew all our profits from the Beck show at Tut's by taking Beck's management team, and Beck and his band, for a meal at Rogano.
