Video: Tom Waits – “Hell Broke Luce”

tom waits Video: Tom Waits   Hell Broke Luce

“Hell Broke Luce,” from Tom WaitsBad As Me features Keith Richards on guitar, Flea on bass, and enough growling and stomping to shake up a dust storm from a loose wooden floorboard.  How do you accompany this visually? Like this:

Matt Mahurin has created an apocalyptic war dream to accompany the song ‘Hell Broke Luce’.  Kathleen and I envisioned it as an enlightened drill sergeant yelling the hard truths of war to a brand new batch of recruits. The video grew from the gnawing image of a soldier pulling his home, through a battlefield, at the end of a rope.

I think you will agree, it’s uplifting and fun.” – TOM WAITS
