Tom Waits

Thomas Alan Waits has been around for a while. He is not as old as rocks, but he undoubtedly could produce some very interesting music by banging a couple together. Since the 1973 release of Closing Time on Asylum Records, Waits has grown more and more primal, using sound in a unique and eccentric fashion to create his music.

In the begining 'Young' Tom Waits had a smoky voice, but one that changed as time passed; decomposing and seemingly fertilizing the growth of his journey into the very marrow of his creativity. It's as if he grabbed that voice like a pack of Old Gold non-filtereds and crammed it through the narrow neck of a Jack Daniels bottle. Letting it marinate, and maybe even stew, in the tea shaded whiskey for a year or two. Now when he lights up that throat, it's shredded tobacco and aged whiskey, it's oak barrels and chest x-rays. It's 'old' Tom Waits.
