So sad to hear that Scott is no longer with us.
As one of the participants to his documentary 30th Century Man, Johnny Marr also has been influenced by his work.
Thank you very much for so many great tunes.

Woke up this morning to this, devastated.


MY HEART

MY LOVE

ANOTHER GREAT ARTIST HAS LEFT
THIS WORLD, BUT THE MUSIC AS ALWAYS REMAINS



<><><><><><><><><><><><><>


If your blind hands can't grope
Through these measureless waters
You'll fall

You've been following patterns
And fleeting sensations
Too long

And the fullness that fills up
The pulse of durations
Is gone

Let the great constellation
Of flickering ashes
Be heard

Let them burn with a fire
All it takes to confess
Is a word, just a word

I can recommend angels
I've watched as they've made a man strong
Oh so strong

If your humbleness shows
Then I'm sure that they'll take you
Along

You can tell them who sent you
It might help to get you
Above

You can say that he laughed
And he walked like St. Francis
With love

Very sad - RIP Scott & thank you.
Garfield was right about Mondays.
I loved his cover of:
His own work is too vast to list - a real one of a kind.

NEVER TO SEE ANOTHER LIKE HIM


A huge influence on Bowie. Scott going
deeper/stranger, changing and shaping music forever.

We need to treasure the artists we still have and obviously, namely the one this forum celebrates. We won't have him forever. RIP Scott.

Strangely, somehow I was expecting Moz to comment on this sad, sad inevitability.
Dunno why, but I always considered them brothers.
Rest well, great Scott.
Wasn't it a good year?

In my eyes he is one of the most influential and innovative musicians of all time.
I adore his crooning days in The Walker Brothers and his early solo days but its the experimental approach he took during Scott 4 and for the rest of his career afterwards that he truly pushed boundaries.
Scott Walker just followed his own path, the avant garde approach to his work just shows how brave he was to show his genius.
 
DAY TWO WITHOUT YOU




‘When they made him

they broke the mold’

Really sad about Scott passin' because it always felt comfortin' to know that an artist like this was existin' and pushin' creative boundaries.
Saw the new Godard film The Image Book a few weeks back, which is partly about deconstructin' and reconstructin' the images in film and
there's a part where he threw a snippet of Scott's music into the mix and it just solidified the point. Just a quick snippet but it said volumes.

.....

At night the people's faces danced
Like pearls colliding on the breast
Of fat Marie whose thunder laugh
Was just a thread from crying

Her sailors stained her cobblestones
With wine and piss and death desire
And sometimes blood for Madelaine
Whose laughter was the night

Her girls would lift their dresses high
And breathe the stars and kiss the sky
She'd smother them with whispers then
Embrace them with her sighs ...

IT’S on days like these
When your brother falls
You can read it all in the Times
How a moving car
Stole a movie star
Little Things that keep us together
While the war's going on
It's on days like these
When your childhood cries
And you see it all on the news
Little children starve
Growing tired of born
Little things that keep us all close and warm
While the war's going on
Find a place you can hide
And take what you can
The time will arrive
When you need a friend
Stop looking at us
We're waving good-bye


It's on nights like these
That your neighbor dies
'Cause he put a gun to his head
He was so alone
He had nothing left
Little things that call for a drink
That bury a soldier's death
It's on days like these
When your sister cries
And your brother falls from your hands
Jumbo jets can die
Killing 81
Little things that help us get by the why
Why the war's going on
Why the war's going on
Why the war is going on
Why the war is going on
Why the war's going on
Why the war's going on
