Streetlight Records

Originally released in 1992 on Island Records,Bone Machineis Tom Waits 11thstudio album. 5 years after Franks Wild Years,Bone Machineis a return to studio albums for Tom Waits. The album features David Hidalgo, Les Claypool, Brain and Keith Richards and won a GRAMMY for Best Alternative Music Album.

Bone Machine is rather pointedly otherworldly another edge pusher his most poetically and sonically daring work yet. Writing again with his longtime collaborator and wife, Kathleen Brennan, Waits acknowledges writing darker material saying A great many songs live there, so thats where Ive been digging lately.

Waits calls the songs onBone Machinelittle movies for the ears. He sometimes wrote them entirely from a percussion patternwhich he played on array of largely homemade instruments. One, the conundrum, was rusted pieces of farm equipment hung from a large iron crucifix. As Waits explained at the time, I have a lot of very strong rhythmic impulses, but this is not my world. I just pick something up and I hit it, and if I like the sound, it goes on. Sometimes my idiot approach serves the music.

Mortality is a recurrent theme, from Dirt In The Ground (Were all gonna be. . .) to All Stripped Down, The Ocean Doesnt Want Me (a tale of contemplated suicide), Jesus Gonna Be Here, the rambunctious paean to childhood, I DontWannaGrow Up, and certainly the broken-hearted, confessional classic Waits ballad, Whistle Down The Wind. Waits explained at the time: Yeah, ultimately, it will be a subject that you deal with. Some deal with it earlier than others, but it will be dealt with. Eventually well all have to line up and kiss the devils arse. Yet the album actually ends upliftingly, withThat Feelco-written with Keith Richards.

Newly remastered for the first time ever from the original flat master tape and personally overseen by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan.Mastered byChris BellmanatBernie Grundman Masteringunder the guidance of Waits longtime audio engineer,Karl Derfler.The album packaging has also been restored.Bone Machineincludes tracks such as Goin Out West, I Dont Wanna Grow Up and Jesus Gonna Be Here. Available as a CD digipack.
