OPINION: SCOTT WALKER – 30th Century Man

I watched the documentary of 30th Century Man on the weekend with little prior knowledge of Scott Walker and his history.  I came away having discovered a new artist, someone with a constantly evolving body of work a refreshing disregard for the mainstream.

I highly recommend checking out this film if you are at all interested in the avantgarde and experimental nature of contemporary music. It features comments from a long list of musicians such as Bowie, Jarvis Cocker, Radiohead, Eno and Marc Almond and covers his career from The Walker Brothers in the 60’s through his leaner years and his more abstract works of the last decade.  For fans of Tindersticks, David Sylvian, Shearwater and Tim Buckley.

Here is the trailer for 30th Century Man:
