Album Reviews: Record Club – Oar

Text: George Nikas

Every time Beck gets bored, he gathers some celebrity friends around and sets up Record Club. The third Record Club consists of himself, few Wilco members, Feist, Jamie Lidell and the legendary drummer James Gadson. This time they are remixing ‘Oar’, Skip Spence’s unique 1969 record, written after his six month hospitalisation due to schizophrenia, which seems to be threatening Beck too.
