So I came across this fellow through an excellent documentary called "30th Century Man" on netflix. I finally got a chance to check it out the other day and I was totally blown away/ inspired after watching it. I'm very upset that I had never crossed paths with his music before, but better late than never I suppose. I can't lie, I have watched the film about 4 times now and I'm totally mesmerized/ hooked. A buddy of mine let me borrow the Scott Walker/The Walkers collection and it's pretty much all I've been listening to. The transformation of this artist is extremely extraordinary and mysterious. He starts off his career with early 60's pop songs with a teen idol sort of charm then to a drastic change to becoming the artist he wants to be, then to his exile and into his current days of experimental/Gothic/eerie/expressionistic music...Now that I think about it I don't even know if it's a genre that can describes what he does? I'll put the link up for the trailer under this. If you happen to check out the film/ or already a fan- please post your thoughts bellow! Enjoy
