12 August 2011:

A great interview with the bard, Van Walker talking about song writing and performing. Van is way under the radar, but is shaping up as one of the best new singer / songwriters in the country. If you want that larrakin spike in your music, Van is your man.

Born and raised on the windswept prairies of north-west coast Tasmania, between lashings of hallucinogenic cheese & Magic Johnson, weened on William Blake & Ribald magazine, Van first heard the music of Bob Dylan around adolescence & began picking guitar & writing songs. Some hundreds of songs later and a hell-bent pick, he moved to Melbourne to form the rocknroll outfit The Swedish Magazines, and sing his unique hillbilly stuff on the side.

‘Songwriting isn’t so much something Van Walker does – it’s more something that defines what he is. From the way he works at his guitar playing, the way he structures his performance, his records and his life in general – it all seems to be a means geared toward the end that is some sort of ideal of an illusive classic song. Already he has scraped far closer to this end than many could ever, or will ever hope to get; in my opinion he has already penned a number of minor classics. The only album you’ll find with a better bunch of songs on it than this is his next one.’ Mick Thomas
