Bear Piss and Beck Covers Velvet Underground

kinda stumped on this one. All I can say is call the number and forward to your friends. Totally worth the awkward call.

In other news, Beck is trying to out-hipster everyone again by forming a record club that slowly cover full albums from back in the dizzy. Posts about a song a week. He can do that. He's Beck. Although let it be noted that Beck's first cover is "Waiting For My Man" by Velvet Underground. Hey Beck-tard: the song is called "I'm Waiting For The Man". Its about scratchin your addiction crazy, waiting for your heroin dealer to meet you on the 6train on Lex and 125th in NYC. So wipe that smile off your LA face and get the title right. Lou Reed should slap you with a bagel. Lucky for you, you are Beck and the cover is f-ing amazing. (sub topic: Velvet Underground, along with Jane's Addiction and Me First and The Gimme Gimme's, might be the best band name ever)
