Scott Walker has been interviewed only once in the past 30- odd years, and that a few grunted sentences on 'The Tube', so a great many rumours have grown up around his supposed eccentricities: To find that this incredibly odd music is made by a well-adjusted,comparatively normal bloke somehow makes it all seem even stranger and more enigmatic than the myths.
Anyway, an essential for fans, though possibly more for the post 'Fire Escape In The Sky' hipsters than for 60s pop lovers. And whilst I imagine that even Scott's most ardent admirers don't take 'The Drift' or 'Tilt' down from the shelf too often, this film will certainly make you listen to those records with new ears. Excellent.
The film is "30 Century Man" and the subject is Scott Walker. Once upon a time in the 1960's, three typical tall, skinny Sunset Strip denizens with long hair and bangs past their eyebrows plus failed C.V.s as musicians moved to England, wherein the intrinsic lack of tall, skinny Sunset Strip denizens with bangs past their eyebrows would allow them to actually stand out. That they did, to eventual mega-stardom. Precursors of the Ramones' hat trick, these unrelated chums named themselves the Walker Brothers, surrendered to mainstream pop, and had enormous hit after enormous hit there, with their flagship sound of Scott Walker's baritone crooning. However mushy the MOR slop tended to be, at least it was interesting having "one of our own" youth culturers singing this way, and all three looking so shaggable. Believe me, David Bowie was listening INTENTLY to this particular sound, and you can hear it every concert he sings to this day.Read more ›
In my younger days Scott Walker was my idol, I was hesitant about buying this DVD as I thought it might be better to remember him as he was. I decided to order it and put it in my basked and saved till later in case I changed my mind, I finally ordered it but delayed watching it for the same reasons as above.
I was pleasantly surprised when I did watch it, it will be something that I am going to have to watch over and over again although I don't really understand or like his later work I admire him for what he is doing and found it fascinating.
