Scott Walker (don’t worry, not dead)

There’s no all-purpose Scott thread. That can’t be right.

Faber are publishing a lyric book early next year, which includes a section for ‘new songs’: I love Soused and it’s been five years since Bish Bosch so new album in 2018? Maybe?

Anyway. Here’s a charming performance of Jackie from the Frankie Howerd Show:


Ah shit! @moderators - can you add (don’t worry, not dead) in the topic title, please?

New (short) interview here:

Frustratingly given the lyrics book contains new stuff, there’s nothing here about a new record. Boo. It has reminded me that I need to give Soused another listen.

yeah i think a lot of people (myself included to some degree) have taken it to mean that new material is on the way but it doesn’t seem like it :sob:

Scoring a new ‘musical drama’ movie. Most intriguing thing about this news is that Sia’s working on the film too. That’d be a hell of a crossover.

Was in Hastings with the TV the other week, and we went into HMV (!) and bought some CDs (!!!) while we were there. Found this set for a tenner:

Scott 1-4 and 'Til the Band Comes In (the latter was quite hard to find until recently). Two quid each, nice. Felt good to replace the bad mp3s I’d had tbqh.
