Following on from his remarkable interpretation of Rain Dogs (Rain Dogs Revisited formed part of the Barbican’s contemporary music programme in 2011), British multi-instrumentalist David Coulter now turns to another major opus by Tom Waits, with an impressive team of musicians and special guests.

Released in 1983, Swordfishtrombones marked a new chapter in Tom Waits’ career as he drifted away from the piano jazz club atmospheres to find darker inspirations in the gutter and back alleys of the human soul. This radical change of direction towards experimental rock was one of the musical shocks of the 1980s.
