I neglected to post this when is was news (although several people did point this out to me), but better late than never: Russian band Billy's Band has an album with Tom Waits covers called Being Tom Waits / Игры в ТомаУэйтса.
The album is ,,a sound-track to the cognominal theatrical performance' of the band'' and also contains songs dated back to the band’s ,,Waits period'', a time of ,,extreme despair'', as the leadsinger calls it. The coming concert will be of the same lyric coloring as the album. The distribution is in the hands of the band itself, which means the cd can only be bought at their concerts, although Bomba-piter.ru seems to sell the album on line. The band itself has their rap version of The one that got away (mp3) on line.
