Chatters, if you like the bluesy cocktail bar jazz then make sure you try Nighthawks at the Diner. It was recorded live in a large recording studio in front of a small audience with a four piece jazz band in order to give listeners a flavour of what a Tom Waits show was like.

Have a read of the wikipedia entry for more details ...

Get Small Change too but make sure you try NHatD.

He's one of those people whose music is so painful that any time he puts in something vaguely tuneful or actually hits a note, it sounds like manna from heaven. It's something Sigur Ros do, but their good bits are way better than TW's will ever be.

Listen past the gravelly persona, and you'll hear some of the most heartbreaking ballads: try Ruby's Arms, Take It With Me, Georgia Lee, and many more. I've loved him since I picked up Nighthawks At The Diner 35 years ago at Beano's, and rate Rain Dogs and Swordfishtrombones as my favourite records ever.

I stumbled a radio session/interview from 1976, just Tom on Piano accompanied by Ralph Ebler on drums (well, drum singular, just a snare and a high hat).

It runs for about an hour and contains eleven tracks taken from Small Change and Nighthawks at the diner and has a real late night feel to it.

Some teasers being emailed out to those on his mailing list

The first email had the subject line "Permission to Come Aboard", the second one reads "I Breathe Better Underwater", both emails contained a photo with the words Coming 7th August printed on it, enigmatic as ever.

My guess is a tour as we have fairly recently had an album, let's hope it includes a rare show or two in London. Come on Tom, what have we done to upset you? Only one London gig since 1987, it must be time for more, how about a residency at Ronnie Scotts?

^^^Just a video in the end. A great one, but alas, not the tour that we hoped for!

Tom Waits always seemed like someone I'd really like, but it took me ages to check out. I listened to him about 3/4 years ago and listened to him on and off for about 2 years until about this time last year, when something clicked and I had to listen to everything he'd done. I'm still working my way through, but needless to say, I am very much a fan.

I would also love to see him live. There aren't many people left who I want to see live, but Tom is definitely one of them.

Some years ago I bought Closing Time and asked the BBS where to go next with Tom. Some good suggestions forthcoming I took the advice. What an adventure. Often challenging but well worth the perseverance. With such a huge back catalogue always something else to discover. My personal recommendations are recently - Bad As Me, and going back - Blue Valentine (esp Kentucky Ave) and the magnificent Mule Variations, on which contains a track which if ever I was feeling tacky enough to include a song for my funeral, it would be the beautiful - Take It With Me. Enjoy the journey.

The best description of Bad As Me i've heard is that it's a greatest hits album with all new songs! They all sound so familier and typically Tom Waits, yet still fresh and exciting.

My youngest daughter and son both told me that they do like him after all and this will explain why my CDs keep disappearing. I don't know why but this really pleased me.

Apparently Tom Waits is the guest in the new Simpsons on sky at 6.00 this afternoon, Sunday 12/05. Should be worth a watch.

Tom Waits on The Simpsons one week, Sigur Ros the next. Matt Groening doesn't give a **** anymore and is just getting all his favourite bands in to have some fun!

Sunday evening 19/02 @ 9:00 p.m. on channel 4 is an hour long programme featuring Tom Waits. Should be interesting even though it will probably be more interviews than performance.
