Some kind stranger asked me today… “What is your favorite album”? I thought for a second or two… was it The Smith’s The Queen Is Dead? Sinatra’s “Only The Lonely”? And then out of the blue I told him Scott Walker’s “Scott 3″. So here it is. If you are not familiar with it give it a try. A geeky (and very cute) buddy of mine turned me on to Walker in the early ’90s but Walker’s music just didn’t click with me till a few years later… and I’ve adored his stunning vocals and atmospheric arrangements ever since. As much as I appreciate his weird and dark recordings of the 1990s and 2000s, it’s his 60’s & 70’s recordings that are very dear to my heart.
Scott 3, 1969 Lp, is the third solo album by singer songwriter Scott Walker. All songs written and composed by Scott Walker (credited as Noel Scott Engel), except where noted.
And here is one of my fave Walker tracks (not on Scott 3) “Joe”.
“To say Color Movies is a group of songs about my childhood and adolescence is true but insufficient,” Terry admits. “It’s a few memories in glass; the result of a maddening stock-taking effort; counting cans with unreadable labels. But I have a markedly questionable, impressionistic memory. I can’t know what is true and verifiable about my life. everything is so hazy. everyone was so sad. All of this is to say some of Color Movies is true, and some is fantastic fiction and I don’t know which is which. I never did.” – Dane Terry

‘He, She, Me': an exclusive track by Devonté Hynes and Neneh Cherry, commissioned by Selfridges. | Film by Kathryn Ferguson & Alex Turvey, featuring Hari Nef. Choreography by Ryan Heffington.
FEELGUIDE: Genius music producer Dev Hynes (i.e. BLOOD ORANGE) teamed up recently with Neneh Cherry for a brilliant new single “He She Me,” released in conjunction with British department store Selfridges’ new gender-free fashion line AGENDER. The video was directed by Selfridges’ in-house director Kathryn Ferguson alongside Alex Turvey, with choreography by Ryan Heffington, who also choreographed Sia’s “Chandelier”. In an interview, Ferguson explained the concept of the video: “The film is an evolving journey through a subtle push and pull between masculinity and femininity, captured entirely in one unbroken shot, utilising in-camera camera effects in a world populated by out-scaled physical props inspired by Faye Toogood’s in store realisation of AGENDER. This film has come at a time when important conversations about gender fluidity and non-binary ways of being are finally getting a lot of attention.”
