Scott 4 is Scott Walker's fifth solo album (a collection of songs he had performed for his BBC television series had been his fourth). It was originally released in late 1969 under his birth name, Scott Engel, and failed to chart. Subsequent reissues have been released under his stage name. It has since received praise as one of Walker's best works.

The band was formed in mid 1995 in London, by Scott Blixen (vocals, acoustic guitar, synth, harmonica), John Moody (electric and acoustic guitars, bass, piano, organ, synth), and Ed Tilley (drums, programming, synth), the name taken from an album by Scott Walker.

I stumbled across Scott Walker by pure accident. I had just come out of a long term relationship and had moved into a loft room in North West London thought was definitely not my kind of music. I did not realise what an influence Scott Walker had had. I've had the pleasure of introducing Scott Walker to many friends and my new girlfriend now wife and hearing/seeing his music performed live not once but twice.

Walker was born Noel Scott Engel, and in his early singing years was styled as a Paul Anka-wannabe (songs about ‘Young Love’ et al: many cash-in compilations exist but don’t bother) before he joined The Walker Brothers, avatars of booming, Spector-ish romance: ‘My Ship Is Coming In’, ‘Make It Easy On Yourself’, ‘The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Any. More’. Enigmatic man, that Scott Walker. Finally, the enigma returned with Tilt, his first new album in 12 years, for with Polygram imprint Fontana, which upped the ante. The opening ‘Farmer In The City’ was something like 1967-70 crossed with Climate Of Hunter, then tilted on its axis, looking toward outer space; it’s epic, magnificent, surreal: Do I hear 21, 21, 21.

Walker dropped out of the British Top Ten with his fourth album, but the result was probably his finest '60s LP. While the tension between the bloated production and his introspective, ambitious lyrics remains, much of the over-the-top bombast of the orchestral arrangements has been reined in, leaving a relatively stripped-down approach that complements his songs rather than smothering them. This is the first Walker album to feature entirely original material, and his songwriting is more lucid and cutting. Several of the tracks stand among his finest
