Co. Music Timeline
I listen to NPR all day at work, and the constant mentions of Scott Walker being a terrible person have been getting me down. So in what may very well be a futile attempt to rescue the name from the clutches of son-of-a-bitchdom, here are some choice songs from the man who was born Noel Scott Engel, and rechristened himself as the one -- the only! -- Scott Walker.
I still remember being stagefront in Southpaw, waiting A Silver Mt. Zion's first U.S. show to begin. It was 2005 and after a few of the ear/mid-2000s indie hits (hey, remember the Unicorns?) they put on Scott 3. "It's Raining Today" began and I'd never heard anything like that before. Or since.
