According to facebook… “The big reveal is Monday! Get ready for your chance to be involved too”
I’m telling you—he’s looking for campaign volunteers. SCOTT WALKER VS. SCOTT WALKER FOR REAL, 2014.
The shape of things to come…
Something new from Scott Walker soon…?
I’m calling it now—Walker vs. Walker f’real. He’s announcing plans to run for governor of Wisconsin in 2014.
I still write things! I’m largely pleased with how this list turned out, but mostly just happy I finished it at all. I hashed the thing out during the move from Milwaukee to Madison while fighting with a 6 month old over her unsustainable sleep schedule (and dealing with the resulting sleep deprivation and occasional auditory hallucinations), lining up daycare for said 6 month old, and caring for a wife who got the stomach flu during all of this.
I don’t know that it’s particularly revelatory to many Walker fans, but with Bish Bosch coming out, I thought newbies could use a primer. Diving randomly into the guy’s catalog could leave you with some pretty mistaken ideas about his overall output.
(FWIW, I was toying with the title “Do I Hear 21, 21, 21 Essential Scott Walker Songs,” but the PopMatters editorial staff seems pretty keen on the round numbers. And, depending on how you interpret it, that might have meant coming up with a 63-item list.)
Glad to see a local keeping the SWvSW agenda alive. From the article:
Despite his early work garnering a devoted UK fanbase, when it comes to fame in his native United States, he’s probably lesser known than the conservative Wisconsin governor with whom he regrettably shares a name.
Guess which Scott Walker has two intensely percussive new tracks available on Spotify this week.
Watch a trailer showcasing the making of Scott Walker’s new album, Bish Bosch.
A trailer showcasing the making of Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign during the recall would not feature musical machetes. Another win for musician Scott Walker.
I apologize for this, but it’s my obligation as director and curator of the Scott Walker vs. Scott Walker organization to point out that Scott Walker (musician) is not the only Scott Walker with associated musical content.
Not to push the capitalist thing too hard, but for those of you who are interested you can now pre-order Scott Walker’s upcoming album Bish Bosch from 4AD. The page also gives a track list:
1. ‘See You Don’t Bump His Head’
2. Corps De Blah
4. SDSS14+13B (Zercon, A Flagpole Sitter)
9. The Day The “Conducator Died”
New Scott Walker (musician) album! Or, as I like to think of it, support for an ongoing argument. Reported instruments featured include: ramshorns, an ancient kudu shofar instrument, machetes, a chisel, a restored 2XL, a pair of Uggs, and pudding.
Okay, I made up the last three.
