In an interview with Bob Baker Fish, published by Cyclic Defrost, bassist Greg Cohen talks briefly about working with Tom Waits. And he hints about a possible new collaboration:

‘We are looking for a new project now. I hope we can do something this year.’ 

Cohen talks more extensive about his earlier work with Waits in an interview with Paul Leslie. The Waits part starts around the 5:13 mark.

The Irish Times carried a nice piece on Asgard agent Paul Charles, last week. Charles represents Tom Waits in the UK, if I am correct.

 “Oh, he [Tom Waits]’s totally brilliant. He’s a great storyteller on and off the stage, which is why he’s such a great interviewee. I mean, where does fact and fiction start and finish? His imagination is amazing; he’s there in the story, making you cry one minute and laugh the next.”

Tom Waits A photo session with Mitchell Rose – Review July 15, 2014

I got a hardcover copy of the new Tom Waits picture book A photo session with Mitchell Rose today and I must say I’m impressed. With only 17 pictures, it might seem expensive, but they are all great shots.

‘I didn’t know at the time that my first Rolling Stone Magazine assignment photographing Tom Waits would be one of the most memorable photo sessions of my career. Arriving at the Tropicana Hotel in West Hollywood in 1977 where Tom Waits lived in a little bungalow in the back…a very crowded and congested space. I didn’t know much about Tom at the time but not before too long I knew that this was not going to be easy to pull off.’

Despite the tattoos, drinks, cigarettes and strippers, every single one of the pictures seems to capture some sort of innocence and spontaneity that is lacking in some shots in the Corbijn book, for example. A great collection and a nice addition to any fan’s collection, if you ask me.

Waits sculpture reappears on eBay July 8, 2014

A Tom Waits sculpture is up for sale on eBay.

This is a sculpture by Tom Waits. It is a red brick, cement and wooden feet. It is initialed on the back of sculpture TW.  It also comes with a copy of the letter from Tom that came with the gift.  This was back in October 1994. 

I have no idea how genuine this is, but $9.999,99 and it’s yours.

This looks like the same item that was put up for auction for $9.000 back in 2012.
