Gomez on Tom Waits

I used to be an avid fan of the Southport band, Gomez. (Truth be told, I really only know Liquid Skin [1998] and Bring it On [1999], from when I first moved to England.)

But be that as it may, the band was recently interviewed as part of MP3.com's Great Albums series, and they discussed my hero, Tom Waits, at some length. Seems that, like me, they too first discovered Waits through Bone Machine (1992) and only subsequently worked their way through the corpus, beginning with Closing Time (1973). Worth a listen here.
