30 Century Man

The Scott Walker documentary 30 Century Man is finally making its way to theatres in the US. It begins a run at the IFC Center in New York on December 17 and will also play at Landmark Cinemas in Berkeley and San Francisco starting January 23, 2009. Other cities are still being sorted out. I'm crossing my fingers for LA! If you're interested in seeing the film in a theatre near you, check out this post from director Stephen Kijak.

For those unable to make it to a screening, the critically acclaimed film is scheduled to be released on DVD by Plexifilm in Spring '09.

In other Scott Walker news, a tribute album is in the works to coincide with the US release of the film. Artists signed up for the project include Saint Etienne, Dot Allison, Damon & Naomi, Laurie Anderson, Ulrich Schnauss, The Duke Spitit. Sounds like it'll be great.

Watch the trailer for 30 Century Man:

You're alive! I do like a bit of Scott Walker. He was so unique. I got onto him through Marc Almond, many moons ago....

I am alive indeed. I've been so bad about posting but I hope to revive myself a bit. I got into him through Marc as well. His cover of Big Louise is so great!
