Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards


This man, if you didn’t already know, is a musical genius, and in just under a month he releases Orphans, a three disk compilation of unreleased material. Already available online is the seven minute ditty “Road to Peace,” Waits’ take on the Middle East and the current administration.

    Even when he’s really really unbearable (as he was on a lot of the Mule Variations album, he’s still a musical genius. I can’t think of a more significant song writer and performer in the past 30 years than Tom Waits.

    Nighthawks at the Diner is top-10 album material IMO.
    I’m also totally into Raindogs.
    A lot of his other stuff? not so much.
