Not entirely non-surf/instro related. He was in the Routers at one point.

But wait, there's more. Walker also recorded with The Moongooners (Candix, Donna, and Essar label) and The Newporters (Scotchtown label). Here's a Moongooners' side:

According to Wikipedia also toured with The Surfaris.

I used to like the Walker Brothers as a youngster.

I had no idea he was involved in surf music.

Amazing range....Sun Aint Going To Shine Anymore...to...Let's Go.
I liked the Walker Brothers but they seemed to be a copy of the Rightious Brothers.

Happy Sunsets!

Phil Spector produced the early Righteous Brothers hits. "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" arrangement sounds similar to the Spector "Wall of Sound".

Nothing against the Righteous Brothers music but in my young eyes they were on the square side. The Walker Brothers while hardly rebellious were a part of the liberation factor happening in Great Britain during the 1960s. Style and clothing said it all. They were way cooler IMHO.

Maybe somebody here knows about this one 45 I have. It’s called Cindy and the writer credits say Scotengel (or similar). I always thought that’s a typo and it’s in fact another early Scott Walker instrumental. Am I right?

You can get the boy out of the Keynes era, but you can’t get the Keynes era out of the boy.

Well, you gave us the title and writer credit, but not the artist or label.

Sorry, currently my 45s are in boxes, but the artist is Eddie Kay. I don’t remember the label. Bethlehem

Here’s a label scan.

This is the black/production run, mine is white, probably promo.

Always helps to have that information. Writer credits: "Scottengel" is, indeed, Scott Engel (typical label typo). "Stewart" was most likely Phil Stewart, who was 1/2 of The Rip Chords. Eddy Kay was a real person (not a pseudonym for Engel). He was a TOURING member of the Routers (he didn't play on the records). While not really the recording band, there's a photo of them on the back of the "Let's Go" LP. I believe Kay is the guitarist standing to the right of the sax player in that photo. Typical Saraceno and Mike Gordon slight-of-hand.

Thanks John! There are several rhythm guitar parts, but I guess we will never know who played them.

Delrin96mm. What a splendid musician he was. I remember seeing a short TV documentary featuring his Avant Garde work some time in the 1980s (I think) I remember feeling quite shocked, intrigued and pleasantly surprised he was looking good and still on the planet! Thanks for video I enjoyed it.

Could the short documentary you're referring to maybe have been the first video attached, which is from 1995?

I'm afraid my memory is foggy at best. It might have been a segment on an arts and culture programme, I remember one such tv show that truly embraced post punk lifestyle in a kind modern intellectual way. Normally these sort of programmes were a huge yawn but this one really had it's finger on the pulse (total brain fade as to it's title) The snapshot I have in my mind is in black and white, there is an animated pattern and wildly disjointed music. They were very much highlighting his new album.
