Way more than some of the star-type bios on Scott Walker that have littered the market over the years – and instead, a well-chosen collection of writings on Walker that really get at the full depth of his genius! The book's a co-production with The Wire – and definitely lives up to the thoughtfulness you'd expect from that association – as editor Rob Young pulls together work on Scott from a number of different fronts – served up first in chapters on specific records, each written by a different artist and commissioned for the book – then moving onto other interview material too. Includes writings by Nina Power, Ian Penman, Biba Kopf, Amanda Petrusich, Richard Cook, Anthony Reynolds, David Toop, and others – and the book is 297 pages, hardcover.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
