Beck recruits Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and Tortoise for the next Record Club
Beck has recruited Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and Chicago's Tortoise for his next Record Club.

The ongoing project sees various musicians going into the studio to record a reworked version of an entire album in a day, with nothing rehearsed or arranged ahead of time.

The chosen album for the latest instalment of the club has yet to be announced, but Tortoise's guitarist/bassist Douglas McCombs told TimeOutNY.com that their session saw them play a "broad spectrum of music that was sort of appropriate".

When completed, the results of the recordings will be posted at Beck.com/RecordClub.

Earlier this year, Beck was joined by Liars, St Vincent and Os Mutantes' Sergio Dias to record INXS' 1987 album 'Kick', while last year, along with MGMT, Devendra Banhart and members of Wolfmother and Little Joy, Beck covered Leonard Cohen's 1968 album 'Songs Of Leonard Cohen'.

The Record Club have also covered The Velvet Underground's 1967 debut 'The Velvet Underground & Nico' and Skip Spence's 1969 'Oar' album.
