Tom Wait’s Live Rockpalast Concert (1977)
Tom Wait’s Live Rockpalast Concert in 1977 DVD
Small Change has always been one of my favorite Tom Waits albums, and Bad Liver And A Broken Heart [Lyrics] is one of my favorite songs. His poetry, jazz piano and drunken beatnik Bukowski-like style seemed to channel the sleazy hidden underbelly of Americana. He captured both it’s stark loneliness and absurdist humor. In my book, Tom Waits is one of the top five performance artists of the 20th century.
Small Change Album
All of the songs below, most of which are from Waits’ Small Change album, are from the Rockpalast 1977 DVD for which I couldn’t find a product link.
Cornershop – Brim Full Of Asha
Cornershop – Brimful Of Asha [Lyrics Explained] [Bio
I liked this song when it came out, but I forgot about until it until I was looking for videos the other day on Youtube. I had never seen the video before. It’s great! When I first heard this song, I didn’t know what the lyrics meant, but I liked the catchy beat of this song. As it turns out, Asha refers to the famous Hindi Bollywood backup singer Asha Bhosle, who is believed to have sung over 12,000 songs, but her sister is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records!
Here are a few YouTube examples of Asha singing Dil ki kahani rang layi (1960?) and here is a color version, Water Ballet (1958) and O Mere Sona Re (1966). Also, I found out that Fatboy Slim’s remix version of this song made it higher in the charts than the original release of Brimful of Asha. Here’s another one of Cornershop’s videos – Sleep on the left side from the same album – When I Was Born for the 7th Time
Brimful of Asha
One hit wonders of the 1960’s
Take a stroll down YouTube and in the 60’s one hit wonder lane. My favorite songs (not necessary videos) were Sukiyaki by Kyu Sakamoto and Napoleon XIV: ‘They’re coming to take me away’.

Oingo Boingo – Private Life [Bio] [Lyrics
I had forgot about the art rock band Oingo Boingo mostly because the music I have by them is on vinyl and in cardboard box somewhere. Also, I had never seen any of their video performances so this is a real treat for me. Their social satire seems even more relevant today than it did back in the early 80’s. Here a few more of their videos that I liked: Nothing Bad Ever Happens To Me, Little Girls and Dead Man’s Party
Danny Elfman and Oingo Boingo
Unknown Hinson – Venus Bound [Bio] [No Lyrics Found]
This guy sort of personifies what the phrase bat shit crazy means! If you want to complain, send your hate mail to Rip Rense, who emailed this link to me with no explanation. BTW, Hinson does appear to be credible guitarist in his own right – Voodoo Chile Live

Radiohead – Paranoid Android [Bio] [Lyrics
