Good Listening: Beck – Lollipop Festival – 07/26/96


What can you say about Beck?

Well....where do you want to begin? We probably don't have the time...

I'll tell you this. Like everybody else that was in a band during the 90s, I covered "Loser" in my high school rock band. Looking back, we shoulda done "Pay No Mind" instead - I like that one a lot better.

My buddy Tony would tell you that Beck is "rockin" during the show below. You shouldn't worry about the fact that Tony is usually referring to a moment during a Springsteen show when Bruce decides to pull out "Darlington County." Or "Ramrod." I still think we can totally apply Tony's idea of "rockin'" to the show below.

Just look at that setlist. Seriously. Cool setlist, plus some nice bonus material - particularly the Letterman performance of "Where It's At." "Pay No Mind" is a rare full-band version, and honestly, there's nothing bad that I can say about this show.

Now, go listen to it....

    Ahh the days before Scientology… Thanks for this! I still owe you Primus and Pixies live right???

  • Thunderpeel

    I tried looking for Beck in the archives. None listed.

  • Matt Wardlaw

    Thunderpeel – not sure what you are referring to…this is the first Beck post here..

  • Sara

    Sissyneck, jackass, novacane, beercan…thank you!!

  • K

    Why does every thing Beck related have to have Scientology mentioned by at least one person?

  • http://4932002 Sara

    It’s a tag that follows him everywhere, unfortunately. You can’t deny the dubious status of scientology and Beck’s probably the 2nd most famous next to Tom Cruise.

  • Matt Wardlaw

    If this Scientology discussion goes over 50 comments deep, you guys will be in a special class with a previous discussion about Duran Duran…

    Glad ya’ll are enjoying the show..

  • Sara

    No thanks, i’d like to stay out of it :)
    Do upload more vinyl-ish Beck stuff please, it’s beyond great.

  • Thunderpeel

    My point was even this Beck post does not show. There is no tag for it under “Beck”

    To the Scientology posts. Who Cares! If he was shoving it down our throats it would be different. He is not. People that bring it up allready bring it up more than he does. Not every Scientologist is a freak like Tom Cruise and the same example can be made for any religion.

  • Sara

    Completely agree, it *is* a waste of breath every single time this label comes up – there are unneeded quarrels when all we should care is his music, which is consistently brilliant and original.
    Beck doesn’t show up coz the post has not been tagged Beck.. hahaha.

    I impressed, I have to say. Really not often do I encounter a blog that each educative and entertaining, and let
    me tell you, you might have hit that the nail on the head.
    Your concept is outstanding; the issue is one thing
    that not enough individuals have been speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very exclusively satisfied that I stumbled
    throughout this in my search for one thing referring to this.
