^ That is crazy cool.

 

Never heard of the guy other than that song you posted last. Although very different styles, his approach to music reminds me of Tom Waits. I also wouldn't be surprised if David Bowie took inspiration when writing Blackstar.

 

It's possible, I know Bowie's been a fan since the early years, so much so that he produced a documentary feature based on Walker called 30 Century Man (and was also interviewed in it - I still haven't seen it though so no idea what he says). His latest albums have been absolutely insane, really dark and amidst the most unique stuff out there. But his baroque pop albums from the 1960s are a beaut too:

 

 

 

 

 

Definitely an artist worth exploring! :D

  :grin: Depending on which 'side' of his output you'd like to explore more, I'd suggest looking at Scott 3 and Scott 4 for his more baroque stuff, and Tilt and The Drift for his latter-day, more experimental work. Either way I think you're in for a treat. :p Lemme hear your thoughts when/if you do!

Just got back from seeing Magma live... This is what going to church should be like. Transcendent doesn't begin to cover it, it's like looking right into the aleph.

 

They did play the entirety of this, amidst other things:
