Scott Blixen is the leader of Scott 4, an English band that plays roots-rock with a hip-hop accent in the manner of Beck. The single Deutsche LP Record (Satellite, 1997) and the mini-album Elektro Akoustic und Volksmechanik (Satellite, 1997) are still tentative, although the cross-pollination of Kraftwerk-style industrial music and Smog-style existential whining is already unique.

The single Your Kingdom To Dust (Satellite, 1998) and the album Recorded In State LP (Folk Archive, 1998) display their classic take on country, blues and hip hop.

The singles Jeans Record (Satellite, 1999) and Catastrophe (Folk Archive, 1999) are less entertaining but Works Project LP (Folk Archive, 1999) introduces orchestral arrangements. The main problem with this album is the unfocused approach to alt-country, folk-rock, post-rock and slo-core.

European Punks (Tiny Dog, 2002) is a collaboration with Magic Car. The ten-minute title-track ranks as one of Scott 4's masterpieces.

Scott Blixen il leader degli Scott 4, una band inglese che suona roots rock con un accento hip hop alla maniera di Beck. Il singolo Deutsche LP Record (Satellite, 1997) e il mini-album Elektro Akoustic und Volksmechanik (Satellite, 1997) sono ancora dei primi tentativi, sebbene l'impollinazione incrociata della musica industriale in stile Kraftwerk e il lamento esistenziale in stile Smog sia gi unico. Il singolo Your Kingdom To Dust (Satellite, 1998) e l'album Recorded In State LP (Folk Archive, 1998) dispiegano la loro versione classica di country, blues e hip hop. I singoli Jeans Record (Satellite, 1999) e Catastrophe (Folk Archive, 1999) sono meno divertenti, mentre Works Project LP (Folk Archive, 1999) introduce arrangiamenti orchestrali. Il problema principale di questo album l'approccio non focalizzato ad alt country, folk rock, post rock e slowcore. European Punks (Tiny Dog, 2002) una collaborazione coi Magic Car. Il brano che d il titolo all'album considerato uno dei capolavori degli Scott 4.
