For the final tracks of Nighthawks, Sam and Martin are joined by Andrea Solomon, talking from the start about the jazz stylings of the album and its instrumentalists, the dual attitude of Waits towards relationships, as well as the relative temperatures of well-digger's posteriors, ticket-takers smiles and gut-shot bitch-dogs… not to mention frozen huskie-urine.
Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes include:
Spare Parts I (A Nocturnal Emission), Nighthawks At The Diner, Tom Waits (1975)
