Scott Walker - 30 Century Man


'30 Century Man' is a 90 minute journey into the history of the increasingly experimental and musically challenging Scott Walker. Anthony Strutt finds it stunning, but nevertheless a film which will appeal to hardcore fans of Scott Walker only

'30 Century Man' is a 90 minute journey into the mind and history of the artist who is Scott Walker. Originally announced as film about the making of 'The Drift', his latest offering and only his third studio album in 22 years, '30 Century Man' goes way beyond that. It is filled with lots of interviews with Scott, but sadly none with Gary or John Walker at all. It also traces his history, showing very rare videos and footage of the Walker Brothers' first Hollywood show which features a young Scott on bass while John Walker sings. The audience I watched it with in Nottingham left stunned as Scott Walker is no longer the fluffy pop artist he was in the 60's. He is strictly experimental these days and his last three studio albums, 'Climate of the Hunter', 'Tilt' and 'The Drift' require work from the listener. '30 Century Man' is boosted by interviews from celebrity fans like Jarvis Cocker, Johnny Marr and David Bowie, whom also was the executive producer of the film. A stunning piece of work but for hardcore fans of Scott only.

Scott Walker - Barbican, London, 15/11/2008
While he did not appear, 60's legend Scott Walker produced 'Drifting and Tilting', which included performances of his songs from among others Damon Albarn, Gavin Friday and Dot Allison. At its third and final night at the London Barbican Anthony Strutt watches one of the year's stand out events

Demanding, but rewarding new largely instrumental mini album and quick follow up to last year's 'The Drift' from Scott Walker
