Thomas Alan "Tom" Waits (born December 7, 1949) is an American singer-songwriter, composer, and actor. Waits has a distinctive voice, described by critic Daniel Durchholz as sounding "like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon , left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car." [ 1 ] With this trademark growl, his incorporation of pre- rock music styles such as blues , jazz , and vaudeville , and experimental tendencies verging on industrial music , [ 2 ] Waits has built up a distinctive musical persona. He has worked as a composer for movies and musical plays and has acted in supporting roles in films including Paradise Alley and Bram Stoker's Dracula ; he also starred in the 1986 film Down by Law . He was nominated for an Academy Award for his soundtrack work on One from the Heart .

Wristcutters: A Love Story is a 2006 American black comedy romance film written and directed by Goran Dukić , starring Patrick Fugit , Shea Whigham , and Shannyn Sossamon . It is set in a strange afterlife way-station that has been reserved for people who have committed suicide . It is based on Etgar Keret 's short story "Kneller's Happy Campers". A graphic novel version was titled Pizzeria Kamikaze. The film was originally intended to be shot on super-16 color infrared film , which was produced specially by Kodak . The color-shifts inherent in using this kind of film were thought to enhance the parallel world feel to the action. [ 2 ] In the end, it proved to be too time-consuming and the film was shot using normal filmstock manipulated in post-processing . [ 3 ]
Future of the Left is an alternative rock group based in Cardiff , Wales . [ edit ] Beginnings Future of the Left was formed by singer/guitarist Andy "Falco" Falkous and drummer Jack Egglestone, both previously of Cardiff band mclusky , alongside singer/bassist Kelson Mathias, formerly of the Ammanford -based group Jarcrew . The band previously featured Hywel Evans, who has since gone on to start a math rock band, Truckers of Husk - he was also a former member of Jarcrew towards the end of Jarcrew's tenure (Evans is also credited as a writer on Fingers Become Thumbs' B-side, The Fibre Provider). The band formed in mid-2005 after both mclusky and Jarcrew split up within two months of each other at the beginning of the year - this was due to tensions within both bands. The band was signed to Too Pure who had also signed Mclusky, however the umbrella company Beggars Group disbanded Too Pure, transferring the band to 4AD .
Mclusky (often stylized as mclusky ), originally known as Best , were a three-piece post-hardcore group formed in Cardiff , Wales. The group consisted of Englishman Andrew "Falco" Falkous (vocals, guitar) from Newcastle Upon Tyne , [ 1 ] Jonathan Chapple (bass, vocals) and Jack Egglestone (drums), who replaced previous drummer Matthew Harding in late 2003. [ edit ] History According to the band, they originally formed in 1996 when Falkous and Harding met at the Blackwood Miners Institute, a venue in their home town from which they were both ejected for dressing as miners . The pair met Chapple a short time afterwards at the Reading Festival when they caught him urinating on their tent late in the night.
