Roll up, roll up, for the latest in Uncut’s legendary and extravagant Ultimate Music Guides. This time, our subject is none other than Tom Waits – radical beatnik, one of the greatest singer-songwriters of the past 50 years, and a true American original. Once again, we’ve gone deep into the archives of NME, Melody Maker and Uncut to fish out the wildest and most surreal interviews with Waits, a man whose stories are every bit as good as his songs. And once you’ve learned that, among many other things, “A hero ain’t nothing but a sandwich,” we’ve given our team of Waitsian scholars the job of reviewing anew all of his storied albums: every one an eccentric and compelling winner, is the verdict. Throw in the usual blend of rare pictures, discographies, a complete collectables guide and all manner of junkyard weirdness, and you’re left with Uncut’s Ultimate Music Guide to Tom Waits. Hoist that rag!
