The Mefite Has Been Drinking

October 22, 2007 6:21 PM

Some of you might remember my interpretation of mr. marx's interpretation of "The Piano Has Been Drinking" on MeTa a few years ago. A little-known fact however is that early in Waits's career, when he was still a struggling artist, he would opt to perform this version as a so-called "crowd pleaser". This is a rare bootleg recording of one of those occasions.

This is great, and I cannot frigging believe how much you sound like Tom Waits just on a lark.

I'm also wigged because there is some chick in your crowd who laughs after that quonsar line exactly like I do. Was I there when you did this but drinking? On second thought, don't answer that.
