Music Moment: The Walker Brothers “Nite Flights”

25 Aug

Good Evening (slurp…..)

Not doing much tonight. Just fooling around, going a little bit loopy over the 4 minute trailer for the up and coming TV adaptation of the most excellent zombie-apocalypse serialisation “The Walking dead”. In subsequent comments, my mate Ragnar appreciated their use of Scott Walker, but wished they used some of his later work. This got ME listening to the late period stage of the Walker Brothers Canon. In particular the title track from their final album, “Nite Flights”. Damn it’s a an excellent album (i previously posted anther track “the Electrician” on this blog). David Bowie recorded a version of this later on, but you can hear a lot of Bowie’s “Berlin” period in this. A lot of Motorik rhythms, elastic bass licks and ambient strings in the background that makes you all wibbly.
