Here’s this week’s Bitter Fingers radiocast from Mark Higgins at London Fields Radio. Does it keep getting better? I think so.
The Suitcase Royale come from Melbourne. They play ragtime pre-war blues and jazz, full of the banjos, stomps and growls that ground a lot of Tom Waits’s music.
I caught them tonight performing their hilarious play, The Ballad of Backbone Joe. You can read more about that, and how to get tickets and see the band themselves, at my other blog. But right here you can enjoy a live YouTube performance and listen to another song from my Box, on the right.
