RIP Scott Walker

2019-03-25 by cloakanddagger | 38 Comments
4AD Records have announced that legendary avant-garde pop singer and former Walker Brothers member Scott Walker has passed away at the age of 76.

Beginning as a pop artist in the 1960s, over the course of his career he became more and more experimental with his approach to music, which eventually led to him producing some of the most creative avant-garde music of the 21st century.

As well as his own solo work, Walker worked with the likes of Pulp, Sunn O))) and Bat for Lashes.

Scott is survived by his daughter, granddaughter and partner.

Really awful news. I love Tilt and especially The Drift, it's always an adventure when listening to that album (but in different song order).

well at least the music never dies. Artists die but every time I listen to a dead artist he'll live again (for a short time).

I had know clue about this. I was just listening to Bisch Bosh earlier today and I did not know he had passed away until just now. I am very saddened by this. He was one of my all time favorites...

I was listening to a song and I saw "RIP" in the comments section and was confused. I googled it and heard about the news. I was listening to Tilt RIGHT as the news broke. Coincidence or sign from the beyond that compelled me to listen to Scott Walker in that moment?
