YouTune no.24: Goin’ Out West (where they appreciate me)

Highbrow? Me?! Yes, all right, perhaps Bruce Springsteen performing a spare rendition of the admittedly rather sombre (but soulful! wonderful!) The Ghost Of Tom Joad was a case of ‘too much too soon’ (some may say ‘niche pursuit’).

This, on the other hand, is fucking brilliant whichever way you look at it (and however much you like Hole): the truly incomparable Tom Waits and Goin’ Out West from the stonkingly good 1992 album Bone Machine.

Health warning: this video includes explicit scenes of graphic gurning.
