Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Greg Dulli, Dave Pirner (vocals); Don Fleming (guitar, vocals); Thurston Moore (guitar); Mike Mills (bass, vocals); Dave Grohl (drums).
  • Recorded at Ocean Way, Hollywood, California and Record One, Los Angeles California.
  • BACKBEAT was a 1994 movie starring Stephen Dorff and Sheryl Lee as Stuart Sutcliffe and Astrid Kirchherr, setting their love story in the context of the Beatles' Hamburg residency in the early 1960s. To establish the punky immediacy of the Beatles' pre-recording stage act, director Iain Softley recruited an all-star alternative rock supergroup containing five of the biggest names of the moment to record revved-up, hardcore versions of R&B and early rock songs that were the mainstays of the Beatles' Hamburg set lists. The band was Soul Asylum's Dave Pirner (Paul McCartney's vocals), the Afghan Whigs' Greg Dulli (John Lennon's vocals), Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and Gumball's Don Fleming (guitars), R.E.M.'s Mike Mills (bass), and Nirvana's Dave Grohl (drums), delivering a fresh, rocked-out take on songs like "Long Tall Sally" and "Good Golly Miss Molly."
Professional Reviews
Spin (4/94, p.90) - "...a group of contemporary musicians has been brought in for a supercharged re-creation. The lineup is stellar...I love the fact that it's Americans claiming this music back..."

Entertainment Weekly (4/1/94, p.52) - "...how to imbue these musty standards with enough edge to rouse '90s audiences? Solution: Enlist the best from the postpunk music world...[an] inspired experiment..."

Stereo Review (3/94, p.96) - "...one of the great garage albums, as close to a 1963 Beatles bootleg in stereo as humanly possible. Special kudos to Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, who plausibly reinvents George Harrison as a proto-noise rocker...."

Audio Magazine (7/94, p.72) - "...this album doesn't maintain the sound of the Beatles as much as it does their spirit..."
