Fuck Yeah Scott Walker


The godlike genius that is Scott Walker. Please feel free to submit anything relevant, I'm no expert.

(David Sylvian) did say that he felt his stuff could use a little more balls. He’s much more of an ethereal merchant than I am. I’m a man who struggles with spirituality whereas he’s given in to it.

It’s interesting to hear it from himself, because this is how I’ve seen it from the beginning. That his work has both sides - the spiritual and the carnal. Except, I don’t think he struggles. I think both sides are fully fledged and the way they entwine together has always been at the core of his music. It’s what makes him such a dynamic and sensual artist.

In here he sounds like he’s apologizing for “having balls”. And there’s no need to. He’s just as otherworldly and cerebral as he is physical and “ballsy”. It’s a perfect symbiosis. (But, well, he wouldn’t be Scott Walker if he wasn’t constantly self-critical, hehe.)

Yes! Down with the mind-body dichotomy! One of the coolest things about the way Scott’s work has evolved is that more and more he emphasizes how music — in some ways the least material art form — is still very much embedded in the physical. Jerking in and out of rhythm, flitting past familiar melodies and quotes, even the strain in some of his vocal deliveries serves to create an experience in which the body and its communal history cannot be ignored.

I was out with a friend today and took him to Europa Music in Stirling as I had been constantly hyping it up. Unsurprisingly we spent three hours in there looking for stuff and by some miracle I found an original copy of “Scott 4” on vinyl. If you pay attention to my blog you’ll know how big a deal this is. I managed to nab it for £25 which is amazing considering there are copies online going for at least twice that price. On the bottom right photo is a copy of the reissue I own on the left and the original on the right.

Curtains are sighing dust of the day
Still I’m not alone like all my neighbours say”

Climate of Hunter may be the prototypical overlooked Scott Walker album, but ‘Til the Band Comes In really gives it a run for its money sometimes. This track, with its negative space, mournful vocals, - hey - and jazzy bongos, is one of those times.
