Can anyone find that really old interview with beck where the interviewer asks what is real name is and he just takes off his shoe and throws it at the wall.

And the interview nods and goes "right on" or something like that

I knew there were other genuine reasons to dislike him. Scientolotit and shoe thrower.

That's actually a high definition capture of what 1994 really looked like.  I miss the soft static and noise that used to coat everything and everyone.  Felt pretty cool on our skins too.  

I think there's a good chance you will dislike Beck's music.  But skim out Odelay, Mutations, Midnight Vultures, and Sea Change to see if there is possibly a version of Beck you might like.  They are all quite different.

Thanks for the recommendations - 3 tracks into Mutations so far, quite liking it tbh. Some bossa nova stuff goin' on atm.

Mutations is great. All mid to late 90s and early 00s Beck is, imo.

It wasn't Drew Barrymore, it was Leigh Limon, his girlfriend for like 8 years or something. She was the one who inspired him to make Midnite Vultures, one of his WORST albums ever.

That's his best album tho

I remember Beck coming out with Loser, and he was like 24 or 26 and it seemed so old to me at the time. Woah.

Haha yeah it's weird seeing footage of bands you looked up to in your teen years being significantly younger than your current self.  Now everybody is babies except me.  I am old.
