the fourth entry in Beck’s Record Club is here, and it’s the amazing eighties-tasticness of Kick from INXS. he’s corralled members of Liars, St. Vincent and Os Mutantes to play the album from beginning to end. they seem a little unsure of themselves on this cover of Guns In The Sky, but i absolutely love the o.g. album, so i’m looking forward to the rest. more info from Beck after the jump.

Record Club: INXS “Guns In The Sky” from Beck Hansen on Vimeo.
Record Club No. 4 is here…! 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. We’ll post the songs consecutively in the album’s original sequence. First one up is “Guns In The Sky.”
