The fourth installment in Beck’s Record club.

The lowdown from the man himself:

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.

This week, Beck finally revealed the club’s 5th entry and this may be the weirdest one of all.

You ready?

“Live At The Acropolis” by Yanni.

That’s right kids … Yanni.

That long-haired, Mustachioed Greek keyboardist who assaulted our senses in the
early 90’s with cheezy, piano based New Age music.

Released in 1994, that live album went on to sale 7 million copies and it’s
PBS special aired constantly for many a years, helped raised $13 million
for PBS stations and was seen in over 65 countries.

Beck brought in several studio musicians, Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth
and Tortoise to round out this baffling undertaking.

“Santorini” is the first track off the album.
