There is pretty much nothing "is" about Pharaoh Overlord or Circle. Each release is quite distinct. They have even essentially "covered" each other (Circle did an album called Pharaoh Overlord, and vice versa).

I;m glad you are featuring the strange, haunting SW
Avatar Mon. 3/25/19 4:39pm TDK60:

I didn't like the Walker Bros much back during the mid-60s, a bit too soft pop for me then. But his later '60s-'70s records had such seriousness in the lyrics. You could see development of a serious musical thinker. Then later he got very out there. And that stuff is good too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/25/19 4:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I will always conflate Scott Walker a little bit w/ Julian Cope - who for me was one of the most important cultural touchstones of the last decades

Such a good creepy one

Thank you, Scott, for this perfect tribute! Will be listening to it over & over, I'm sure.

i'd buy you a beer or two if i could scott essence....and maybe a bag of rippley chips.

i just love the feel of this song.. each time i hear it i'm hypnotized
  Mon. 3/25/19 5:26pm thatguy:

rip, sad to hear he passed. There's a song "Jackie" from Scott 2 I think? It was my intro to Scott W. Tuned in late, so I'll have to relisten to catch the full tribute.
Avatar Mon. 3/25/19 5:27pm TDK60:

There's also his "Soused" album (2014) with drone band Sunn O))); pretty good too.

Why does it take someone to die to play his/her music?

Who is slapping the ham? (serious question but phrased to be funny)
Avatar Mon. 3/25/19 5:30pm dale:

he does a good cover of dylan's 'i threw it all away' on the soundtrack of 'to have and to hold' by blixa bargeld/nick cave/mick harvey. i think they produced him doing it.

A valid question fred. But - if I've heard Scott - it was probly on FMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/25/19 5:30pm Scott Williams:

@fred, it doesn't! Scott Walker gets a TON of play around here, he's never gone outta style
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/25/19 5:31pm tim from champaign:

Thanks. Scott. He's playing it as instructed too.

This is awesome.

he still had his SW Ohio accent when he spoke, it seems. kind of remarkable.
Avatar Mon. 3/25/19 5:32pm TDK60:

Scott Walker gets played a lot on WFMU (see artist browser in advanced search on main page.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/25/19 5:35pm Carmichael:

I heard the Walker Brothers growing up, had not realized Scott was still performing until I found FMU 25 years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/25/19 5:36pm Scott Williams:

Andy, if you haven't seen the doc "30 Century Man", do! His accent by the mid-oughts was a mix of Ohio with a lifetime lived in London

ahhhhh i am finding this soooo DISTURBING and soooo SOOTHING!!!
  Mon. 3/25/19 5:44pm Andy the painter:

@Scott. the way he said “that” took me back to cincinnati. his hometown of Hamilton just up the road. thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/25/19 5:47pm tim from champaign:

It's surprising Metallica had heard of Lou Reed and disappointing that Lou Reed had heard of Metallica.

I'm still hedging on later Scott, post-"4". Love the Brothers, though - I want After the Lights Go Down played at my funeral.

Thanks for great songs Scott DJ.

Belock played The Old Man's Back Again earlier. Has such a cool spaghetti western sound to it.

Ok this song is awesome

This sounds like a theater piece or soundtrack
Avatar Mon. 3/25/19 5:52pm herb.nyc:

where has scott walker been all my life? as dave hill would say, some of these songs are "panty droppers".
Avatar Mon. 3/25/19 5:52pm dale:

i always thought scott had a cold when he recorded this - he sounds stuffed up when he says her bathrobe's torn...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 3/25/19 5:52pm zpulpa:

@ chresti, I just had the same thought.. I feel like there is so much to see in his music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/25/19 5:52pm paul b:

For some reason I always thought (in latter years) that the Talking Heads song "the Overload" was a nod to Joy Division or some similar. But it probably was really a nod to Scott Walker's "the Electrician)
