>With a career that now spans four decades and over 20 albums, Tom Waits has

>long since emerged as an extraordinary innovative force; a singular voice

>whose music remains determinedly--and even gloriously--well beyond the fads

>and fashions of popular culture.

>

>In an exciting departure from the critically acclaimed Alice and Blood

>Money, two albums that were released simultaneously in the spring of 2002,

>Real Gone is the unpredictable follow-up that features Waits' fevered

>imagination. Waits has spawned a new musical hybrid, grafting together sonic

>and ethnic worlds from musical traditions both old and new.

>

>The 15 tracks on Real Gone feature primal blues, Jamaican rock-steady

>grooves, as well as African and Latin rhythms and melodies. Waits

>ingeniously finds common ground with hip-hop's cut and paste aesthetic, and

>incorporates some of its elements into his approach which he calls "cubist

>funk." Many of the tracks on Real Gone were built on Waits' "human

>beat-boxing" on a cassette recorder in his bathroom and bringing those tapes

>into the studio to have the band play over them. As a result, there are no

>drums on many of the most driving tracks as his voice provides all of the

>necessary propulsions. And for the first time, there is no piano.

>

>"Real Gone is an electric pill box, a homogeneous concoction of mood

>elevators, mind liberators and downers, an alchemical universe of rattling

>chains, oscillating rhythms and nine-pound hammers," says Waits.

>

>For over 30 years, Tom's music has taken adventurous turns, from

>confessional country-blues and jazz-flavoured lounge, to primal rock and

>avant-garde musical theatre. By turns tender and poignant, to strange and

>twisted, his songs tend to explore the dark underbelly of society as he

>gives his uniquely human voice to adventurers both romantic and mercenary,

>drifters, con artists and those forgotten characters on the fringe and in

>the fray. Waits has expanded and drawn from a deep well of American and

>European song idioms: a category that can only be described as "Waitsian".

>

>Make sure to get your tickets early to see this legendary performer. Tom
