Acropolis Now

The new Record Club project, starring Beck, Thurston Moore, and Tortoise decided to cover Yanni Live At The Acropolis.

ENJOY at all summer long

UPDATE: As you can see on the .com, Beck wrote “To flesh out the complex arrangements, several studio musicians were brought in to read a heavily doctored score with interpolations of everything from Stravinsky to Bobby Brown (and others).” (Earlier in the day, it said Shania Twain’s name there.) Does this mean that funky riff part in the second half of “Santorini” is an interpolation of something? Does anyone recognize it at all?

    Yeah, sounds like they’re mucking with ‘My Prerogative’ around 2 minutes.

    Absolutely awful sounding, the whole thing, I reckon. :|

    Weird to see Thurston & Beck in the same room…
