As a subscriber to Tom Waits' mailing list, I received an email entitled "Permission to Come Aboard" with a picture of Tom in an eye patch and "August 7" scrawled across. It can only be a tour, but the question will be, how extensive a tour and when? Time is likely running out if there's ever to be another Tom Waits travelling circus in Australia.

I got one as well. The raindogs are all talking about a tour. Be nice if it included Australia.

Tuesday's are apparently the favoured day for releasing albums in the USA !!!

Cheeky bugger....all that suspense for a music video? Even if it is a good one, those of us desperate for news of the Tom Waits travelling show can't be out through the emotional wringer like that....

"As most of you guessed, it's a tour... a tour de force!

"Matt Mahurin has created an apocalyptic war dream to accompany the song 'Hell Broke Luce.' Kathleen [Brennan] and I envisioned it as an enlightened drill sergeant yelling the hard truths of war to a brand new batch of recruits. The video grew from the gnawing image of a soldier pulling his home, through a battlefield, at the end of a rope.

"I think you will agree, it's uplifting and fun."
Tom Waits
