Swordfishtrombones Revisited




David Coulter presents the world premiere of his re-interpretation of Tom Waits darkest, boldest record with guests including Nadine Shah, Sarah Blasko, Dorian Wood and Lisa ONeill.

Released in 1983, Swordfishtrombones marked a new chapter in Tom Waits career as he drifted away from the piano jazz club atmospheres towards darker inspirations. This radical change of direction towards experimental rock became one of the seminal musical landmarks of the 1980s.

Mercurial multi-instrumentalist and composer David Coulter has worked with Waits as well as other artists such as Gorillaz, Kronos Quartet, Marianne Faithfull and The Pogues. He is also a curator of adventurous musical performances such as Rain Dogs Revisited, David Lynch Revisited and Jim Jarmusch Revisited. He is joined on stage by some of the UKs finest musicians on stage including members of Polar Bear, The Invisible and more.
