More discussions this week with Jon Ronson around the writing style of both Waits as well as Jon himself in his feature film Frank. With music that Waits influenced as well as plenty of discussion around the musical presences in Frank, we dig into more perspectives on our interaction with music as identity, political as well as personal.
Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes include:
Time, Rain Dogs, Tom Waits (1985)
If I Should Fall From Grace With God, If I Should Fall From Grace With God, The Pogues (1988)
Official trailer for Frank, dir. Lenny Abrahamson, wri. Jon Ronson (2016)
