There are songs that have defined our lives through the good times and the bad, you have heard them sheltering at the crossroads of misery and abandon, you have heard them at the alter of ecstasy and elation. Songs that portray everything from sin, murder, love, death, regret and hope to songs that are simply enjoyed for their time defying melodies and their inexplicable lifting of the soul. When such songs and music are discussed there is one name that is routinely referred to… TOM WAITS. Mr Waits has spent his lifetime fathoming the depth of power of the written word through the art form of music, amounting to a force that conveys emotions that are seldom captured in any other artistic form.
BONE MACHINE are the crusading dark horses that keep the mysteries of life alive, offering an escape route and destination to anyone seeking liberation from the norm. A night out with Bone Machine will reinforce your belief in the songs of Tom Waits. From Martha to Downtown Train this band bring the heart, atmosphere and sweat to performances brimming with a ramshackle sophistication and honesty as well as the Waitsian monologues and funny anecdotes that Waits is universally celebrated for.
Ladies and gentlemen let us present… BONE MACHINE.
Whether or not the songs and music of Tom Waits play a central roll in your music collection, you simply have to experience this show live to feel the heaven-opening maelstrom of beauty scarcely captured by a live band. From blood soaked ballads to evocative Godliness and anarchic elegance there has never been a show that has captured the golden thread of what makes Waits such a legend until now!
