Listen to Stephin Merritt play a Beck song

The interview I mentioned in the previous post with Beck and Stephin Merritt on Soundcheck can be heard here. You can either listen to the entire interview or just Mr. Merritt's toy piano-laden cover of "Old Shanghai."  Please also note the brief shout-out to tuba player extraordinaire Johny Blood!

  2. Stupidly good cover by SM. Off the radar good.
