Good news, everyone. The entire ANTI- catalog of Tom Waits albums will be re-mastered and re-issued on vinyl, which will include a new remixed version of Real Gone. All of this will be available before the holiday season, which will make excellent gifts and stocking stuffers. Tom Waits is one of the coolest people on planet Earth and has released videos, songs, and movies that always evoke emotions, laughs, and fun. I just hope he’s working on a new album and will once again tour, because if you’ve never seen Tom Waits live in concert, you really haven’t lived yet. It looks like all releases will come with 2 LPs that are 180g each along with a digital download card as well, which is just amazing.

Hulu is prepping a new supernatural drama titled ‘Citizen‘. Paramount Television is setting the show in a “supernaturalised” version of LA which mixes “gritty vigilantism with elements of magical realism”. So far they’ve cast their first actor in the series and they came in hitting the heavy bag with Tom Waits!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 3rd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

tom waits simpsons

Back in August we reported that a bunch of big names were going to guest on this season of ‘The Simpsons‘.  One of those names was Tom Waits, and his episode will air this coming up Sunday, so set your DVR’s to record.  I do not know much about the episode, but I seem to remember hearing that Waits won’t be singing in the episode, which is very unfortunate.

Tom Waits Delivers New Music Video! No Tour Announcement!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 7th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

So, over the past several days, Tom Waits has been teasing his fans (which include me) about something he was announcing today.  He has posted a few images on his website hinting of what’s to come.  It all seemed to be pirate themed.  There was tons of speculation over the internet about what the musician had up his sleeve.  We were all hoping for a tour announcement.  Maybe a Tom Waits cruise?

Tom Waits Tour Announcement?!?!?

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 31st, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

A very cryptic image appeared on Tom Waits’s web page earlier.  It’s an image of him, which is the one above that says “Coming Aug. 7”!  With the caption that reads, “Permission to Come Aboard”.  I think this means he will do a new tour.  Hopefully we will get a cool new video announcing the tour like he did with his PEHDTSKJMBA tour.  PEHDTSKJMBA meaning “People Envy Happiness; Dogs Though Sense Courage, Knowing Jubilation Means Better Ass…sets.”  Keep it here for more info on Aug 7th.

Tom Waits Brings The Goods On “Bad As Me”

by NapkinArt on Oct 24th, 2011

Tom Waits' "Bad As Me" LP.

For decades, Rock n’ Roll has been thought of as a young man’s trade; the energy to sustain its demands on the mind, body and soul is no match for the weary. As true as that idea my be, rockers like Tom Waits (now 61), who continues to play by his own rules and charming madness, again goes beyond the borders of his own conventionalism with his 17th studio album, “Bad As Me” now available for the taking.

Hi Bryan Here….

One of my top two favorite musicians is Tom Waits.  He is definitely the coolest guy on the planet.  His last album was ‘Orphans: Brawlers, Ballers, and Bastards’ with a live concert album called ‘Glitter and Doom’ from his Glitter and Doom tour.  Well he has been hard at work on his new album titled ‘Bad As Me’.  I seriously cannot wait for this album to release, which will be October 25th.  So not to much longer.  Actually you can purchase the single ‘Bad As Me’ for download right now from your favorite digital retailer.

Want A Rare Tom Waits Record and Vinyl Player???

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 13th, 2010

The coolest person in the world, “Tom Waits” has been working with New Orleans institution “The Preservation Hall Jazz Band” on the benefit LP preservation which was inspired by an old 78 rpm recording called “Tootie Ma is a Big Fine Thing” which is a Mardi Gras Indian street Chant by Danny Barker.

So the Jazz Band and Tom Waits have been doing their version of this song and will be released as a 78 LP on November 19th.

The B-side contains Waits’ and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band’s cover of Barker’s “Corrine Died on the Battlefield”

There will only be 504 copies available of this record to purchase.  In addition, since most record players only have the options of 33 and 45, they will be releasing a 78 record player with the record.  Only 100 players will be made for purchase.  The player itself is AWESOME.

The record itself can be purchased for a donation of $50.00 to the Preservation Hall Junior Jazz & Heritage Brass Band.  And the record player + record canbe purchased for a donation of $200.00 to the Preservation Hall Junior Jazz & Heritage Brass Band.

Both packages will be available for purchase in person at the New Orleans Preservation Hall on November 19th at 10:00 a.m. and online on November 20th by clicking HERE.

If you are a Tom Waits fan and a fan of New Orleans music, then try and get this rare gem.  I know I will.

The Dead Don’t Die – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 12th, 2019

“The Dead Don’t Die is my favorite zombie film of the year.”

Just when you thought the zombie genre was indeed dead, Jim Jarmusch (Dead Man, Only Lovers Left Alive, Coffee and Cigarettes), re-ignites the stale genre with The Dead Don’t Die, including an A-list cast, extreme dry wit, and a ton of fun. This short, but sweet movie feels familiar with its usual genre tropes, but at the same time, its wholly original and burns down the fourth wall so much that it would have Deadpool himself blush. Jarmusch basically got most of his favorite actor friends from his previous films and said, “Hey, let’s make a zombie movie where anything goes.” The result with this cast of deadpanned characters are flawless as they weave through a zombie outbreak in their small, podunk town to the tune of Sturgill Simpson’s song The Dead Don’t Die.
