Welcome to Song by Song - we are Martin Zaltz Austwick and Sam Pay; two musicians who, out of some obsessive completist compulsion, have decided to listen to and discuss every single Tom Waits track in chronological order. Join us weekly, episode by episode, song by song. In Season One, we will plunge headlong into Closing Time, Tom Waits's 1973 debut album.
