ARIA-nominated Aussie bluesman Ash Grunwald drops by for what is unbelievably our first episode on Tom Waits. We discuss the grotesque world of Mr Waits on the best album of his modern era ‘Mule Variations’, dissect the songs from the bizarre (Big In Japan, Eyebell Kid) to the tender (Come On Up to the House, Hold On) and speculate about how Tom Waits presaged Spotify. Plus, Ash reveals what is ‘so wrongtown’ about his relationship with the album.
