Well, a few months ago, I remember seeing plenty of billboards around the strip and in L.A. for Tom Waits. Distribution was good as well, so I suppose it was a good decision for him. Although, I'm not really sure how many punks are gonna start listening to him just because he's signed to Epitaph.
LOL, I like your sig, Tommymakestapes. Why Tom Waits is signed to Epitaph, I'll never know. I'd like to hear his cover of "**** Armageddon, This is Hell" sometime.
Thanks man. I think it's a pretty wise move for him. He's catching a whole new fanbase now, probably gets way more money for the amount of records he sells for being on an indy rather then a major. but I will admit. It's wierd to know that his newest record and NoFX "Ribbed" are on the same label. Epitapth is putting out everything now. The last 5 records I've purchsed from them have nothing todo with punk except maybe the "i'm doing this my way" additude. Times change. If they didn't life would be wicked boring.
and the quote was from an interview he did with The Onion AV Club after being asked "any final words?"
