The Godlike Genius…
Jul 27, 2017, 13:00
Can't quite belive that there has been no mention here yet of the incredible BBC Late Night Prom celebrating the music of Scott Walker (1967-70)
The atmosphere there was like no other performance I've experienced and, despite a couple of slightly mis-judged vocal performances, overall the standard was amazing. The project was put together by Simon Raymonde (Cocteau Twins & Bella Union) whose dad arranged some of Scott's music, Jules Buckley and the Heritage Orchestra
Vocalists on the night: Jarvis Cocker, John Grant, Richard Hawley & Susanne Sundfør (simply stunning on her take on 'The Amorous Humphrey Plugg')

Do yourself a favour and listen here (sandwiched by great Scott Walker-related Gideon Coe show)
