what's the difference, really?
is spelt correctly. The other isn't. That would be the main difference – I would say.
musically and sonically experimental
This is the most poorly executed musical controversy thread since "Why did DiS interview kate nash?".
he looked rubbish
but anything after Swordfishtrombones and they sound nothing alike.
Takes it in the Rea
is my dad.
I sleep in your hat.
although Rea is a cheese monger, Waits is cool to like apparently. thats the difference I suppose.
He was good in Bram Stokers Dracula though.
Tom Waits is from Hartlepool
used to be good and the other one has always been shit.
once lost his wig in a taxi. The taxi driver freaked out, thinking it was a rat, and crashed the taxi through the front window of a barbers. Chris Rea escaped from this experience without his wig, but with a handful of someone else's hair, which he later fashioned into a replacement wig.
loves to fish, and famously once caught a 6 foot eel, which he hollowed out and turned into a trumpet. Waits can be heard playing this instrument on that old favourite, the Jive Bunny album.
I think you could probably class Swordfishtrombones and Bone Machine as two of the most groundbreaking albums of the past 2 decades.
Not sure if you could say the same for Road To Hell or Gods Great Banana Skin though.
...and one of the girls danced to Road to Hell. It was surprisingly un-erotic.
whereas Chris Rea has been making some of the most groundbreaking music of the last 30 years!
I was going to try and keep it going but I just couldn't, you cannot defend the indefenceable (I think that is spelt wrong).
I fucking love Tom Waits, only Bob Dylan betters him for me. And I cannot wait to see him in edinburgh in july.
after your comments on Queen i was about to lose all hope ;)
you lucky bastard. That said, I might be able to scrape together enough money for a ticket last minute.
I took the hit and am going to see him both nights, fucking expensive but when is the next chance your gonna get to see him. I am very excited about it.
