Waits, Tom : Blood Money
...a cacophonous, fearsome and shadowy delight...
Written for and inspired by 'Woyzeck' – the play he wrote two years ago for a Copenhagen theatre – it is mean.
Starting with 'Misery Is The River Of The World', ‘Blood Money’ carries the hard-wheezing, malevolent echoes of 'Bone Machine' – his grinding, frightening 1992 epic – through to its close. These songs, Tom Waits
