Scott Walker, The Herd: The Dome, Brighton

Keith Altham, New Musical Express, 29 June 1968

GREAT SCOTT! That's my immediate reaction after seeing and hearing Scott Walker break through the scream barrier last Friday evening at the Brighton Dome. The message, that he would like to be heard, has got through and shrieks and shouts song had finished are now the form of appreciation.
