SCOTT WALKER: 30 Century Man

If you asked me a day ago “Who is Scott Walker?”, I wouldn’t have been able to tell you. His songs I’ve heard here and there over the years (the cover of “No Regrets” by Midge Ure was the most familiar of Walker’s songs to me) but I never knew who he was until seeing the documentary Scott Walker: 30 Century Man (2006) recently. After experiencing this story about the reclusive musician and hearing the amazing songs he and his band The Walker Brothers made in the 1960s and 70s, all I know is I definitely want to check out more. His sound can be described as haunting and otherworldly. He has one of those voices that’s incredibly unique and captivating. His band’s experimental music arrangements, especially on the 1978 album Nite Flights are now considered groundbreaking by his peers. This documentary features interviews with several of his fans and people he’s influenced such as David Bowie, Brian Eno, Sting, Johnny Marr, Lulu and many other long time admirers of his music. If you love music but don’t know Scott Walker’s work or even if you do, this is a must see!
