Record Club

INXS “Guns in the Sky”

Record Club No. 4 is here…! Joining in this time we had three of my favorite bands— Liars, Annie Clark and Daniel Hart from St. Vincent, Sergio Dias from the legendary Brazilian band Os Mutantes, as well as RC veteran Brian Lebarton, just back from the Charlotte Gainsbourg tour. The record covered this time was 1987 blockbuster ‘Kick’ by INXS. The record was chosen by fellow Aussie, Angus from the Liars. It was recorded in a little over 12 hours on March 3rd, 2010. It was an intense, hilarious, daunting and completely fun undertaking. Thanks to everybody for being there and putting so much into it. Many classic moments, inspired performances and occasional anarchy. We’ll post the songs consecutively in the album’s original sequence. First one up is “Guns In The Sky.”

Alex Chilton

In tribute to Alex Chilton, found a live cover of ‘Kangaroo’ from the Sea Change tour in Japan and another performed on the BBC in 2003. Must have played this song on stage a 100 times. One of my favorite songs from one of the best songwriters who ever lived.–Beck –Beck
