Reminder: From The Basement on Saturday!

Friday, December 14th, 2007

British Beck fans, don’t forget to watch (and record!) From the Basement featuring Beck tomorrow night, Saturday December 15th at 9PM on Sky Arts (Channel 267) and Sky HD (Channel 268).

For those of you who don’t know, this is a performance by Beck and his band (from last year I think) performing live in Nigel Godrich’s basement. Beck friend Jamie Lidell is also on the episode I believe.

Here’s a YouTube preview, unfortunately the same as the video I linked to before:

from the basement – december 15th

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

i’m not sure where the dates came from, but according to ROSEMINT cafe Beck’s episode of Nigel Godrich’s From the Basement should be available December 15th.

From The Basement is a music series that features the most intimate live performances from the finest musicians on the planet.

From The Basement launched with special performances from Thom Yorke, The White Stripes and Kieran Hebden & Steve Reid. Beck, Jamie Lidell, The Shins and Jarvis Cocker have all shown the appreciation too with exclusive performances for future transmission. Filmed in high definition with live sound by producer Nigel Godrich, and with no host and no studio audience, From The Basement sets a new standard for music TV production.

PS I think this will appear online, but if not you UK people should record it. It’ll be on SkyArts (267) and SkyArts HD (268).

UPDATE: there’s a clip up now on the website – Motorcade

UPDATE #2: Sky Arts has e-mailed us some pics from the show. Thanks Sky Arts!

Beck on new SNL CD

Friday, September 7th, 2007

Beck’s performance of ‘Nausea’ on SNL is going to be on a new CD. The disc, Live From SNL! Performances From Saturday Night Live is going on sale Sept. 9, exclusively at Target.

Two things bother me about this. First, September 9 is a crazy-ass date to release a CD; they normally come out on Tuesdays in North America. Second, ‘Clap Hands’ from the same show was way awesomer! That’s what should have been included, screw Nausea’.

I also heard recently about some new SNL music DVD, but I’m too lazy to look for that right now. Anybody else hear about this? Is Beck on it?


  1. Avril Lavigne – Girlfriend
  2. Kelly Clarkson – Since U Been Gone
  3. Foo Fighters – Best Of You
  4. Arctic Monkeys – I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor
  5. P!nk – Trouble
  6. Beck – Nausea
