As Tom Waits explores his frustrations around the business of music/entertainment, Amrita shares some of her own experiences with Martin and Sam. We discuss the managerial perspective of the song, how that compares to Wait's own position in the industry, and the different strategies The Ting Tings use to express similar sentiments.
Note: Sam refers to Eddie Campbell as Australian; he is actually Scottish and just lived in Australia for a number of years.
