    Default So...Um... Scott Walker please

    I feel like I have been missing out on something for a long time now but ever since I saw "Scott Walker: 30th Century Man" last night I feel like I now know the secrets of how all of my favorite bands get their inspiration.

    I doubt that he would ever do such a huge event as Coachella but fuck, with the right stage production I could see him pulling off a set reminiscent of Portishead. Make it happen.

    See this movie

    Apart from the fact that he doesn't play live, this is a great idea.

    Any insight as to why he doesn't play live?

    I suspect that he doesn't enjoy it. Otherwise, he probably would.

    Yes "The Drift" is a great record and fans of it should check out DAVID SYLVIAN's new record Manafon. Awesome!

    scott walker's ideal venue: THE MOON. only such a place could capture his magic.

    or, you know, coachella...

    my fav SW songs (just some, what youtube had)







    well, i guess i mostly like his renditions of brel songs. but man was SW a major hottie back in the day

    naw. I think he would do something quite exclusive like play the roxy. its pretty scott walker-like to do the opposite. He's not exactly a conventional dude.

    Why is it cool? I didn't follow. Is it because of the movie?

    This thread is my first time giving him an extensive listen. I like.

    Agreed. It's not something I want to listen to that often, or have pop up randomly on iTunes, but is a fascinating piece of musical nightmare fuel to listen to when the mood strikes. Would love to hear it at Coachella. And then he could join Bat for Lashes for that one song, too. Will never happen, though.

    How about we just pop in some Scott Walker records in the old CD player and play it through the main stage soundsystem? Maybe watch the Secret of Nimh, too.

    He couldn't even perform in front of an audience for his Later ........... appearance so him playing Coachella is not likely going to happen.

    or he could hide in the orchestra pit. At least he's no Sly Stone.

    Maybe they were watching a prerecorded thing? I've seen that too... and I remember them dimming the lights for it. I thought it was to create a nice mood. Perhaps it was to see the screen better?
