Beck's Record Club

Record Club sets out to record an album a day.  They pick an album, play it and document it in the knowledge that they won't get a second shot.  They say:

"There is no intention to 'add to' the original work or attempt to recreate the power of the original recording. Only to play music and document what happens."

which I think is a pretty upstanding idea.  They're developing quite a back catalogue which is definitely worth having a flick through and all their videos are on vimeo.  If you're thinking this sounds a little amateur then don't panic.  They've got some old hands onboard to steady the ship like Nigel Godrich whose produced albums for Radiohead, Travis and Beck himself.  A particular favourite of mine is Tom Tom Club-esque cover of The Velvet Undergounrd and Nico's Run Run Run...
