Scott Walker. (RIP March 2019)

I am asking this in regards to the fact that he has produced the new Pulp album and everything I've heard so far is wonderful. However, stick one of his actual records by my ears and I don't like it. Not at all. I think it's the voice (note, not gravelly), the actual arrangements often sound good. Anyone else have this problem with him? I also realised Jarvis' is fairly similar, only I like it, which is strange.

Wow, talk about being cool in England. I guess for Americans, that would be like getting J.D. Salinger to produce your album or something.

Re:Scott Walker, I still haven't heard Tilt. Comments?

Tilt = godlike. One of those albums where I initially didn't know what to think of it, but now all it takes is the beginning of "Farmer in the City" to immediately send me.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 10 September 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

No, for me the voice is the main attraction. "Tilt" is really not representative of his main body of work. Even his vocal style has completely changed. It's really not where I would start with him; it's a weird one. Scott 1-4 are all great (espcially 4) and I even like his "country" albums.

Make 4 good records and then live the fame forever.

Tilt? game over! Insert Coin --> jarvis want to play!

Yes, TILT doesn't really represent his main body of work, but it fucking STABS! And his voice sounds amazing throughout.

My introduction to Scott Walker was, perversely, Climate of Hunter, which (forgive me) I thought was unlistenable. All frightening avant garde warbling. It took about five years for me to recover and work out that it wasn't all like that.

Reviving this thread to plug this website I found today. MP3 downloads of all the Scott Walker albums that haven't found their way onto official CD releases yet. Scott Sings Songs From His TV Series! The Moviegoer! Any Day Now! And two discs of what sounds like off-air recordings of ALL the songs from the TV series.

Don't tell the RIAA, now.

You are most welcome Charlie.

I've had "...Sings Songs From His TV Series" for ages - I grew up listening to it actually, my dad owned it on old fashioned audio tape and played it to death. It's the most Vegas-y Scott ever got, and I doubt he was very comfortable doing that sort of material, but damn it's great to hear him singing that kind of stuff. The arrangement on "Will You Still Be Mine" is completely over the top.

I'd recommend downloading "Country Girl" first. It'd fit real nicely on "Scott 3." Then download "Maria Bethania" if you really want to be confused.

According to Mojo, a Scott Walker box-set entitled "5 Easy Pieces" will be released in November and it's been compiled by Scott himself, with each disc representing a different aspect of his work (film work, avant garde, etc.). It will include some Walker Brothers tracks, although there's no mention of unreleased material.

You better believe it boy - primetime BBC1, Saturday evening(?), 1969(?), much the same set up as similar shows presented by Cilla Black, Dusty Springfield, Lulu though i don't believe any of those ladies ever sang "My Death".

RJG, I don't know if you're kidding or not, but if you haven't heard the original version of "Maria Bethania" by Caetano Veloso, you should really really download it. I love it to death. Walker's version is good, but disappointingly faithful to the original.

Always curious about the Sylvian link-up (and my heart sank when someone posted a photo of him on their IG feed recently... as a happy birthday thing thankfully... every time I fear the worst now). In the Guardian DS said they'd kicked around some ideas that might have extricated SW from his onerous Virgin deal, without ever imagining it would come to fruition. Initially DS had sent SW a song that would suit his voice. This was 1990-ish. I wonder what it was. My money's on "Blackwater".

Naive Teen Idol, Friday, 29 March 2019 04:34 (one month ago) Permalink

Oh yeah, that would have worked.

Been trying again with Til The Band Comes In (a friend, counter to all received wisdom, rates this as the best of the Philips period) and the issue isn't that it suddenly drops into MoR covers at the end, it's how wildly uneven it is. I know it's kind of a concept album. practically musical theatre, and at the time (Sgt P, etc) that seemed to mean cramming in as many genres and mood shifts as possible. The Boychild comp lifted the best of this - "Long About Now" is the only other highlight. I'm never going to get on with "Jean the Machine" :)

Michael Jones, Friday, 29 March 2019 11:22 (one month ago) Permalink

I know what you mean. I actually really like the first half, but I'm not sure how well it all sits together. I will say that the songs are very 'catchy', not in that they stick in my head, but that after only hearing them once or twice they definitely stick out from the rest of his work as STRONG songs

frame casual (dog latin), Friday, 29 March 2019 11:54 (one month ago) Permalink

I agree, I think Til The Band Comes In represents a pretty dramatic drop in quality. I love pretty much everything on Scott 3 + 4, but Til The Band Comes In is really all over the place, and I think the only things I really love are Little Things and The War Is Over. That whole smooth jazz aesthetic must have sounded pretty out of step in 1970!

Zelda Zonk, Friday, 29 March 2019 12:26 (one month ago) Permalink

Actually I'm listening to it right now and am actually enjoying the covers - in a library music kind of way - more than most of the original Scott stuff. Stormy has got some good bass going on!

I finally heard Stretch and We Had It All yesterday. I do not come to defend the latter - the put-on southern accent he uses on several of the country numbers is abhorrent. Stretch has some nice bits (Moviegoer is leagues better)

I feel like I wanna hear Any Day Now because I noticed Peter Knight does the orchestrations on that one

valet doberman (Jon not Jon), Friday, 29 March 2019 12:58 (one month ago) Permalink

Yeah I don't think Stretch is irredeemable by any means. It's been a long time since I heard Any Day Now but iirc it's nice in places although the version of Ain't No Sunshine is not much cop at all.

J. Sam, Friday, 29 March 2019 15:52 (one month ago) Permalink

"Jean The Machine" is George Bleedin' Melly, though. Title track slightly spoiled by the backing vocals I think.

Minor gripes. And it's not comparable to later Tom & Jerry ("where they could talk"), never mind what Jarvis says ;)

On the subject of devastating... listening to "Rosemary" and "On Your Own Again" on my commute probably not a smart move. I'd actually forgotten about the killer codas to each of those.

Michael Jones, Friday, 29 March 2019 16:50 (one month ago) Permalink

Oddly enough, 'Til the Band Comes In was the first Scott I listened to after his passing. It veers between adventurousness and biding time ("Time Operator," natch), and is very cinematic — moreso really than The Moviegoer in its feel, a bit like a trailer compilation of curios from the era. The overlapping orchestra tracks on the title song convey "one man's descent into madness": spinning camera, multiple exposures. I'm not sure if I'd say that movie looks like great art; it feels maybe a little pretentious (Scott is quoted describing his work this way in the liners for, what, Scott 2?), but it looks cool and I'd check it out anyway. The album also feels special for having been a little harder to acquire than the albums that preceded it (I didn't get ahold of a copy until a 2007 Japanese reissue). Major cult appeal!

What time of the year did Scott Walker go to that farmhouse to write material for "Climate of Hunter"? I’m wondering if the title of that album can be interpreted as a reference to the constellation of Orion. His experiences in the farmhouse surely left their mark on the album’s lyrics; it’s hard not to connect "Rawhide" with, as he mentioned in an interview, his seeing herds of cows grazing while there.

Melomane, Sunday, 31 March 2019 20:07 (one month ago) Permalink

well that was an ill-advised and overemotional full discography listen i did yesterday, but i came away thinking the drift is his masterwork (and he made several albums that qualify). surprised me a little, i sort of expected to love tilt or climate the most at this point but... even though it's slow-hatching nightmare, the drift is surprisingly, perversely catchy? most of the songs lingered in my head from when i spent a lot of time with it in college

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Monday, 1 April 2019 13:01 (one month ago) Permalink

\They really do have their own little characters despite all living in the same world. Some days I'm into the more melodic, strangely beautiful elements of Tilt; the brute-force dynamic terror of Drift; or the dark scat humour of Bish Bosch. I've also reassessed Soused lately and while it's certainly not his best sonically, his lyrics come into their own on that one.

I haven’t fully revisited it yet but will put in a mention for Ian Penman’s wonderful and long (~70pp!) essay “a dandy in aspic” in rob Young’s book, it makes a case for those middle years: the moviegoer and songs from his tv show and that. Penman touches on stuff mentioned upthread eg that the originals in til the band comes in go well into the second side, and posits that the reason the received wisdom “SIDE 2 IS ALL BAD!!” was allowed to ossify is that for a long time it was difficult to actually get ahold of the album to check - not to be too on brand but maybe cf twin peaks “SEASON 2 IS ALL BAD!!”

For sure although I like the David Toop interview where (iirc and I may be thinking of a different one) he asks walker about the significance of kabbalistic references in the drift (serifot and kellipot) and Walker has no memory of even coming across the words before, let alone what he meant by their deployment!

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Monday, 1 April 2019 17:21 (one month ago) Permalink

I actually like almost all of the songs that fill out side 2, it's just that this record HAS to end with "The War is Over", going from that to "Stormy" etc is just too weird and jarring. Same with Scott 3 though I love those three Brel tunes. Both LPs have a resoundingly clear natural ending point at which they do not end.

valet doberman (Jon not Jon), Monday, 1 April 2019 17:26 (one month ago) Permalink

i'd like to argue against conventional wisdom here and suggest the three brel tunes are actually the best possible way to end scott 3, the album entering this arch wormhole at the end ("sons of" both creepy and beautiful! "funeral tango" a complete delight and less jarring in the sequence than "we came through" imo) and closes with the most beautiful "ne me quitte pas," can't argue with it ("two weeks since you've gone" would've been a weaker closer)

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Monday, 1 April 2019 17:34 (one month ago) Permalink

No way, "Two Weeks Since You've Gone" is gorgeous and heartbreaking and "If You Go Away" is his worst Brel cover by a country mile.

Wonderful Amazon review for Rob Young's book here. Yikes!

James J. Omeara
5.0 out of 5 starsThe Implicitly White Genius of Scott Walker
February 17, 2014
Format: Hardcover
Even if my review at the Counter-Currents blog hasn't convinced you that Scott Walker is the ultimate White musician and worthy of your attention for that reason alone, this book will appeal to anyone with an interest in the mechanics of the post-war pop music industry or just some damned fine cultural writing. It’s really quite exciting to see such implicitly White music, both avant garde and MOR, receiving serious critical attention. White Nationalists should be heartened by it, and should encourage this unexpected entry point into the mainstream by purchasing multiple copies for family and friends!
