This is great news, and we can't wait to hear what he does with Venus in Furs: Beck's covering the entirety of The Velvet Underground and Nico. Or maybe we're worried about what he might do with “Venus in Furs.” Please be careful, Beck, and don't hurt yourself.

Sayeth the masterful Mr. Hansen:

For this first edition, after lengthy deliberation and coming close to covering Digital Underground's Sex Packets, all present voted in favor of the 'other' Underground's The Velvet Underground & Nico. Participants included this time around are Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, Brian Lebarton, Bram Inscore, Yo, Giovanni Ribisi, Chris Holmes, and from Iceland, special guest Thorunn Magnusdottir, and myself. Thanks to everyone who helped put this together, and to all of you for indulging in this experiment. More soon.
