SCOTT WALKER Special (Flac)


As mentioned on the blog previously I began recording radio programmes in June 2017, for the first time in approximately 14 years.

The first was a short session by Evening Hymns/Jonas Bonnetta, the third a 3-track session & interview with the Fleet Foxes on Jo Whiley's BBC Radio 2 programme. AVAILABLE HERE

This new post was the fourth and features a tribute to the music of Scott Walker. Jarvis Cocker of Pulp is a massive fan, listen to the influence and cinematic scope on their final album 'We Love Life' released in 2001, produced by Scott Walker.

For his mixtape he selects deeper cuts from Scott's back catalogue. Also included is a bonus track by Richard Hawley covering 'The Old Man's Back Again.' Unfortunately this was the only track I managed to record from the Proms tribute show.

Verity Sharp with Jarvis Cocker's Scott Walker mixtape - Late Junction
The latest in our series of mixtapes looks ahead to the Scott Walker Prom later this month, as Jarvis Cocker, a devotee of the pop-turned-avant-garde singer, curates lesser-known cuts from his catalogue.
