The Walker Brothers: The Electrician

A few years ago I watched the documentary, Scott Walker: 30 Century Man. The film is fascinating and Walker himself is a surprisingly open and gracious interviewee. But for me, the real gem in the movie was first hearing The Electrician. This song’s combination of brooding Berlin-era Bowie ambience and Walker’s bombastic crooner schmaltz just shouldn’t work. But it does. There is nothing else quite like this song.
