Bar/None News: Phillips and Driver

David Driver sings the songs of Scott Walker, easily the most respected and least known artist of his generation. Walker, the enigmatic and influential subject of the soon-to-be-released documentary film 30 Century Man, is ripe for re-discovery and downtown chanteur David Driver (seen alongside Deborah Harry and Elvis Costello in Roy Nathanson's Fire at Keaton's Bar and Grill and as a regular vocalist with the Losers' Lounge) is the singer for the job. Walker's gritty glam lyrics, passionate crooning and Dada arrangements are late-twentieth-century music's road not taken; the streetwise luster and gravity of Driver's voice make him uniquely qualified to resurrect these urban songs. The songbook includes the classics "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore," "Montague Terrace (In Blue)," "It's Raining Today," and the inimitable "Thanks for Chicago, Mr. James."
