The current governor of Wisconsin has done a lot of unpleasant things in just a year and a half, not the least of which has been to give a dickish connotation to the name Scott Walker. That's too bad, because the OG Scott Walker is one of the great all-time vocalists/songwriters/bass players. He's known as much for his heartthrobby baritone as for his eccentricities and the many turns his career has taken: from the oldies radio staple "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" to his production of Pulp's We Love Life, and his resurgence in popularity following the 2006 documentary Scott Walker: 30 Century Man. The showcase takes its name from the final album of his sometime band the Walker Brothers, but anything from his oeuvre is up for grabs. Except, I'm assuming, his strange, misguided country phase?
