With the release of 1983’s seminal Swordfishtrombones Tom Waits walked away from the piano-bound Bukowski persona that he worked throughout the ‘70s and never looked back. With each album that followed, Waits, with the assistance of songwriter and spouse Kathleen Brennan, plunged further and further into a disorienting world of distorted junkyard blues, Beefheartian flights of improvisational fancy, and wildly sketched characters drawn from the fringes of the subconscious. 2004’s Real Gone sees Waits expanding on these themes with a steely-eyed sense of purpose born of post 9/11 despair and disillusionment. “Hoist That Rag”, an unholy guitar racket powered by a relentless Cuban rhythm, is an uncompromising indictment of abuses of power performed in the name of patriotism, while “Sins of My Father” is an extended meditation on inherited guilt. Throughout Real Gone Waits is accompanied by a host of exceptional players, foremost amongst them guitarist Mark Ribot, who coaxes a remarkable array of screeches and groans from his instrument, imbuing Real Gone with a confrontational grit not seen on a Waits album since 1992’s Bone Machine.
