Tom Waits - "Downtown Train"

WRITERS ROUND:<br>Tom Waits - "Downtown Train"

Tom Waits would never be described as a particularly commercial artist. Depending on if you ask someone like my mother about albums like Mule Variations or Bone Machine, he could also be described as incoherent, cacophonous, or The-Reason-Why-We-Ask-You-To-Keep-Your-Door-Closed-Upstairs.
