TOM WAITS "HELL BROKE LOOSE" . . . . THE OLD GRAVEL GARGLER MAKING A STATEMENT ON WAR, POLITICS, RELIGION AND ALL THE OTHER SHIT THAT FUCKS THE WORLD IN ITS ARSE . . . . SURREAL, HAUNTING AND CUTTING REAL CLOSE TO THE BONE . . . . DID SOMEONE MENTION COLLATERAL DAMAGE ???
In a week when another five Aussie troops lost their lives in the war against . . . . whatever it was we were warring over . . . . I figured this was pretty appropriate, or at least timely . . . . fuck, this guy just keeps getting better [or should that be bitter?] with age, spewing vitriol like napalm, this is what you call a well directed rant . . . . nobody seethes like Tom with a gutful.
My thoughts and best wishes for safety and a homeward journey go out to all our servicemen and women deployed around the world . . . . doing what they have done throughout history, following orders and putting their lives on the line . . . . Australia is thinking of you.
