This week Stuart Maconie welcome the mercurial talent that is Scott Walker onto the Freak Zone for an hour long chat about his new album Bish Bosh. To celebrate this rare interview, we thought why not warm up by asking you to pick the Ultimate Scott Walker Playlist?
Celebrating his 70th birthday this week, Scott unique voice has seen him take a fascinating career path from sixties pop star to acclaimed experimental musician, via producer and soundtrack composer. Whilst some of his later work certainly errs on the challenging (lest we forget that on 2006's The Drift he used slapped sides of meat as percussion), Walker remains a fascinating and unique talent, revered by a whole generation of contemporary musicians.
This Sunday we want you to fill the playlist between 7-8pm with Scott Walker related material. It could be:
* Your favourite tracks of his either as The Walker Brothers or solo work
* Some his 60s contemporaries, maybe Andy Williams, The Everly Brothers or The Standells?
* People he's worked with from Pulp to Nick Cave and Bat for Lashes
* Or acts who have been directly influenced by him like The Last Shadow Puppets, David Bowie, Radiohead and The Divine Comedy
We've also asked The Quietus to pick half-an-hour of music between 6.30-7pm - you can read their interview with Scott here.
As usual you can shape the playlist by leaving a comment on this blog or on Facebook, Tweet us using #Scott6Music, e-mail us or drag a track into our collaborative Spotify playlist.
