    A book-end to Hunters and Collectors' 'what's a few men?' at the other end of his particular shelf, perhaps.

    Beautiful track!
    Thanks for posting.
    My definition of an intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger.

    My definition of a sad git is any Palarse fan who has posted more than 100 times on NSC.

      Ive been lucky enough to have seen thousands of bands both as a punter and through work and can honestly say Tom Waits live was head and shoulders above anything I had seen or have seen since. The last time I'd been that excited about a gig was probably the first time I saw the Clash.
      I saw TW in Milan and it blew me away then saw him in Edinburgh a few weeks later and even now thinking about it I get goose bumps. Indescribably brilliant.



      (Although I saw Patti Smith and Nick Cave on Wednesday in Dublin and am still buzzing' )

      Nothing beats good live music, nothing.

      Seem to vaguely recall he had an album or a movie or something called Tom Waits For No Man. Apart from that he just seemed one of those horrible mumbling American OGWT acts that you went and made a cup of tea while they were on and prayed they were off by the time you got back.

      There is a lovely path you could stroll on, if you choose to take it...

      And *phew*
      Maybe we should put "not RIP" next to names of public figures of a certain age in thread titles.
      Love so much of his stuff, especially swordfishtrombones onwards.
      One of my guitar heroes - Marc Ribot - features on Rain Dogs, and many albums since.
      This is a great one for paranoid times:

      I'm super-jealous, but it sounds as though you've put in the hard graft to extract a few gems. I saw Cave and Smith on Sunday in Victoria Park. Cave, especially, was fantastic

      Does some great cameos as well. My favourite is the sage growling barman in Rumble Fish.

      Terrific movie with a good Stewart Copeland soundtrack , this clip opens with Mickey Rourke (pre botox explosion), Dennis Hopper and Matt Dillon. Great lines for TW.....

      Have you seen the Muppet Show........

      (Looking for) The Heart of Saturday Night. A wonderful, evocative slice of tawdry city night life.
      I hope you meet someone your height, so you can see eye to eye with someone as small as you!
