Beck et al to play Song Reader, live

By | Published on Friday 17 May 2013


That Beck is going to have a stab at playing his new sheet music pamphlet, ‘Song Reader’, live.

He won’t be doing it solo, quite the contrary, because Jarvis Cocker, Franz Ferdinand, Beth Orton, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Joan As Police Woman, Villagers’ Conor O’Brien, Michael Kiwanuka, The Staves, The Guillemots, Pictish Trail and James Yorkston – and an honorary ‘house band’ featuring The Invisible’s Dave Okumu and Tom Herbert, and Polar Bear’s Seb Rochford – are going to join him at London’s Barbican on 4 Jul.

He’s pretty co-dependent, is that Beck.
