Sit back, pour yourself a drink, maybe put a little smooth music on the stereo and put your arm around Song by Song, as Martin and Sam embark on an improvisational adventure through the metropolitan sprawl of Nighthawks At The Diner, Tom Waits's third studio(ish) album. There's a definite divide in attitude as we settle into this first track, with variable high feelings and low-pressure thoughts throughout the discussion. So umbrellas up and ears open for Season three. How's your drink, can I freshen that up for you...?
